Everything depends on having a clear picture of your warehouse. With the help of SAP EWM you make reliable promises to your customers in a complex environment.

SAP EWM (Extended Warehouse Management)

Nowadays, products are in constant motion throughout your entire chain. This has made it more complex to make good and reliable promises to your customers. Whether we are talking about accurate delivery times or availability in stores or online, everything depends on having a clear picture of your warehouse.

Equally important is the speed and ease with which you respond to requests and changes presented by your business and customers. The more flexible your warehouse processes are configured, the easier it is to respond to all processes in your company during the day. This requires a reliable warehouse management system with real-time insight into your warehouse stocks and processes.

SAP EWM as the successor of Warehouse Management System SAP LES

SAP EWM gives you extensive control over all processes in and outside the warehouse. It gives you a better overview and allows you to reduce costs. This EWM system can be considered as the successor of the Warehouse Management System SAP LES. The benefits of SAP EWM for your organisation are provided below:

  • As dynamic as reality: SAP EWM is much more flexible than old warehouse management systems. It gives you the freedom to run, merge and split tasks at the same time. This makes the system better attuned to the hectic reality of a warehouse.
  • Satisfied users and managers: the number of screens employees work with has been reduced to just a few essential dashboards. They allow employees to start, monitor and influence the processes from A to Z. SAP EWM has built-in cockpits and KPIs that give a real-time overview of the status of your process.
  • Complying with customer and legal requirements becomes simple: the customers show the way. You want to keep your customers satisfied in order to stay ahead of the competition. SAP EWM sees customer requirements as an absolute priority. For example, instructions from a salesperson will be shown on the screen of the order picker's scanner. This ensures everyone is aware of the customer's wishes. Besides customers, the legislator is also an important stakeholder. Legislative regulations at European, national and regional level have a large impact on your process. EWM helps you to be and remain compliant.
  • Easy implementation with SAP S/4HANA.
