Westernacher pioneers e-commerce SAP Transportation Management Space
Norwegian e-commerce platform marked.no benefits from swift implementation of SAP software
Westernacher has done it again – in record-breaking three months, the global business and SAP consulting expert has helped Norwegian e-commerce company Komplett drastically streamline transportation management and analytics for online grocery market platform marked.no, for which Komplett provides IT infrastructure.
“This is another great milestone for Westernacher in the transport and tracking & tracing space,” said Matthias Hollenders, Westernacher’s Principal SAP Supply Chain Management Expert. “Three months is the fastest implementation time touching all parts of TM worldwide. Westernacher is also one of the first companies to implement SAP transportation software for e-Commerce.”
Using advanced and reliable SAP software, the implementation allows marked.no customers to book groceries online and have them delivered to their doorstep. The dynamic timeslot planning and booking not only intelligently determines the delivery price, but also facilitates the planning and execution of the delivery, all while saving time and money for both company and customers. The software can even determine unloading duration, find the best possible parking spot and track a driver’s position via geo-location.
Launched at the beginning of February, marked.no is a pure online grocery home delivery e-shop and distributor. Orders can be placed online and will be conveniently delivered via small trucks to the customer doorstep or to a pickup location in Oslo, Norway’s capital, and soon in the rest of country as well. marked.no delivers high quality products, fresh products and recipes from a well-known chef. Similar to Amazon and Alibaba, marked.no has no stores but delivers everything directly from their warehouses.
Hollenders is confident Westernacher’s journey with Komplett will continue. “The feedback was very good. We will enhance the system further by gradually adding more functionality and develop an app for their drivers and pick-up location staff to guide them throughout the tour/day and also provide real time tracking information. This helps the dispatcher keep control on every single unplanned event that might happen during the actual delivery. We hope for this cooperation to allow for other opportunities in the eCommerce market.”
