“Many companies have SAP, but aren’t fully utilizing the supply chain modules. We can extend the use of those modules, streamline and speed up the execution as well as reporting, and allow customers to ultimately get more out of their existing solution."
Grand Rapids, Michigan (PRWEB) November 19, 2015
viastore, a leading material handling automation systems and software company, announced that the company has begun an SAP implementation practice in North America. The company has had a similar practice in Europe since 1996 and is now expanding it to North America.
With this new North American practice, viastore will deliver best in class SAP-based Supply Chain Execution & Warehouse Management solutions. The new initiative will be led by Harouna Mohamadou, who recently joined viastore’s North American operations in the newly-created position of Director SAP Consulting. “The mission is to leverage our extensive SAP supply chain expertise and help increase the competitiveness of our customers by implementing SAP best practices,” said Mohamadou. “One of our core objectives is to provide consultation, implementation and optimization services for manual and automated warehouses to our customers.”
viastore is one of the pioneers capable of integrating different warehouse automation solutions directly to SAP EWM or SAP LES/TRM without third party middleware.
“Many companies have SAP, but aren’t fully utilizing the supply chain modules,” said Mohamadou. “With the EWM and WM modules, for example, we can extend the use of those modules, streamline and speed up the execution as well as reporting, and allow customers to ultimately get more out of their existing solution.” Beyond extending the functionality of the EWM and WM modules of SAP, viastore can also fully implement the complete SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) and SAP LES (ERP-based WM) solutions.
viastore’s viadat standard product, multi-lingual WMS/WCS software suite has a certified integration to SAP and is installed in hundreds of sites across the globe. The viastore/SAP integrated solution gives customers a supply chain execution solution tailored to fit their needs while still utilizing SAP.
“With our combination of automation, supply chain experience and software offerings, viastore can provide a well-founded and technology-neutral consultation to customers, added Mohamadou. “End users will achieve shorter throughput times, higher efficiency and processing reliability, reduced inventory, and increased picking and improved customer order quality. In a nutshell, as automation and SAP specialists we guarantee a best fit solution for your automated or semi-automated warehouse independent of the automation technology chosen.”
