Westernacher Connected Forklift on SAP


Streamline your supply chain with Connected Forklift on SAP.

Westernacher has teamed up with Kinexon, market leader for indoor position tracking, to create a pioneering Connected Forklift solution for the SAP market.

The solution allows you to connect all the moving assets within a warehouse (such as forklifts or trolleys) to provide a holistic overview of live and historic operations through an integration of SAP Leonardo IoT and SAP EWM. The essence of the solution is in leveraging indoor position data within the business context from the WMS system to increase process stability, transparency and automation.
