Extended Warehouse Management

With the ever-increasing size of warehouses, the ever-increasing demands for short and reliable delivery times, and the ever-increasing demands for efficient and effective warehouse management, the importance of good warehouse management has increased dramatically in recent years.
For automating the processes, SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) is a solution.
The system integrates high-volume warehouse operations with complex supply chain logistics and warehouse and distribution processes, giving you a high degree of visibility and control.

How does it work?

It controls the processes in your warehouse paperlessly and digitally. It helps your employees work as efficiently as possible and make as few mistakes as possible.
