This innovative FIS product enormously facilitates the workflow of the warehouse workers. The Creator converts the ITS-mobile HTML application into a user-friendly HTML5 (SAPUI5) application. “The UI5 Creator makes our employees benefit from a flexible and responsive display of dialogs on the terminals. They can adjust the display on the hand-held scanner ergonomically, zooming is much easier for them or they can select different color settings according to the lighting conditions in the warehouse. This considerably facilitates the daily work in the warehouse,” explains Niebling.
