Mastery, control, and optimization of complex warehouse structures and processes with SAP EWM

SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM)

These days, companies require the supply chain to be extremely efficient and they make great demands when it comes to warehouse logistics. The costs of providing services have to be reduced and the added value of the services maximized at the same time — without negatively affecting the quality of logistics services. The need for intelligent solutions for complex, demanding warehouse logistics systems therefore continues to grow.

valantic’s product portfolio includes solutions for the from-scratch introduction of SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) as well as for the migration of an existing warehouse management system (SAP WM) into the EWM environment. In addition, the introduction can be done as integrated EWM solution in the SAP S/4HANA environment (embedded EWM) or as a stand-alone version.

Planning and controlling warehouse structures and processes with SAP EWM

SAP EWM as a component of the Supply Chain Execution Platform (SAP SCE) is the most popular warehouse management software on the market. This system addresses the warehouse requirements of logistics service providers, producers, and many other companies. SAP EWM is used to handle and monitor all goods transactions in the warehouse including the resource-optimized bundling of storage tasks. As an integrated application, SAP EWM can be used with other modules, for example SAP Transportation management (SAP TM) and the SAP Logistics Business Network (SAP LBN) for comprehensive control of the supply chain.
