Uniform Warehouse Management System

Date: 18.12.2023Source: SSI-Schaefer

Implementing a uniform warehouse management system (WMS) across multiple sites around the world requires appropriate software capabilities and extensive program management expertise. The tried and tested solution approach of the experts at SSI Schaefer presents a combination of industry and implementation expertise alongside the use of our in-house WAMAS Enterprise WMS solution. The scalable approach offers customers of all sizes, from local start-ups to global enterprises, numerous advantages – both in terms of technology and cost.

Different locations with different warehouse technologies, assortments, and processes as well as the staggered implementation of a WMS in existing and new installations – these are all challenges that must be met in today’s volatile world.

While software projects are usually focused on one location or purpose with a predefined duration and the known essential project criteria (complex, novel, time-limited, measurable goals, limited resources, predefined budget, teamwork, and one-off), software program management is much more geared towards long-term support – often in relation to an international corporate customer. Work here involves coordinating the implementation and support of numerous sites, for which several projects are ongoing in parallel. This homogeneous approach across individual projects ensures that resources are used efficiently and costs are reduced over the course of time.

Said Gregor Girstmayr, Head of WAMAS Enterprise WMS, SSI Schaefer: “The economies of scale from effective program management ensure a significant reduction in costs over time and enable optimum prioritisation of individual projects.” 

Within the framework of program management, strategic and operational goals are developed together with the respective customer by a dedicated program team and subsequently implemented through targeted individual projects. The program team assumes the overarching control function, which enables the identification of any conflicting targets of individual subprojects and the initiation of countermeasures.

The software team at SSI Schaefer support each partner in the intralogistics environment on a long term basis and face future technological challenges together. Renowned international groups already count among SSI Schaefer’s customers and – thanks also to efficient program management – are looking with confidence to a common future in the implementation of homogeneous warehouse management software systems at locations around the world.  For more visit ssi-schaefer.com
