Deep-rooted Software and IT Capabilities
During our experience of over 45 years implementing IT and Software projects, we have gathered a tremendous degree of expertise in designing and implementing SAP solutions. This expertise stretches across all levels of a project, from deep process and functional expertise to system configuration, set-up and the development of high-value add-ons.
- Technology Pioneers
Westernacher won the first implementation project for SAP Yard Logistics. We have a comprehensive demo environment that can show companies how their business processes can be improved using this software. In addition, we offer industry-specific templates, enabling projects to get up and running quickly.
- Value Based Implementations
These templates make it possible to look at business requirements directly in the system, and not just discuss in theory.
- SAP and Legacy Integrations
Transportation planning and warehouse execution are historically done in different systems. For every yard project, integration beteween these systems is necessary. We offer best practices from other projects, as well as demos and templates to integrate Yard Logistics with products of the Supply Chain Execution Platform, such as SAP Transportation Management or SAP Extended Warehouse Management. If customers are running these operations in SAP ERP, we can also work within those interfaces.
- Westernacher Add-Ons
Several add-ons for yard logistics have been developed, from an integrated driver app, to highly specialized apps for shunting and coupling operations. Please contact our experts for more information.
- Deployment Expertise
We are always available to offer guidance in running and installing the software, as well as answering any questions raised during this process, e.g., how to install the software on the same server as SAP EWM or SAP TM.
Common Key IT Challeges and how we overcome them with our Customers
- Do you have a scattered IT landscape with multiple legacy applications, developments and interfaces?
Our experience in previous projects has given our consultants the experience and know-how to know-how to not only work with any kind of interface, but also to optimize them.
- Are you planning your transports with software other than SAP?
If your planning tool comes from the non-SAP world, we can help you to integrate the outcome of the planning in SAP Yard Logistics.
- Do you want to integrate into a non-SAP tool that optimizes your warehouse processes?
If your warehouse is not running on SAP EWM or SAP WM, we’ll help you to find the best connection to exchange data between systems.
- Do you have a highly customized SAP system with a variety of enhancements and want to move back to an SAP standard product?
We help customers to investigate their custom coding, map the coding to a process and subsequently demonstrate how the process can be done with SAP standard software, such as SAP Yard Logistics.
