More about the SAP Solution Center
SAP is one of the strategic applications within GEODIS Logistics. The core activity of the SAP Solution Center, located in Venlo - the Netherlands, is to implement logistics solutions for our Warehouse operations. The main SAP modules that are used by the SAP Solution Center are: WM; SD; MM; PP and TRM. Currently the logistics SAP solutions are mainly implemented in the Netherlands, but there are also a few installations in Germany, France and Brazil. With the creation of the new GEODIS entity “Business Unit North”, (the consolidation of the Logistics operations in Germany; the Netherlands and Ireland) we do have the opportunity to enlarge the SAP footprint in these other countries as well. The decision to bring all the SAP systems to the BU North Dual Data Centers and to harmonise the SAP FiCo environments for Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland and Italy is the proof of a strong commitment of the management team towards SAP.
The SAP Competence Center is a relative small but professional team of SAP WM Consultants; SAP Developers and SAP Support&Implementation persons. Beside the internal SAP team we also work together with some preferred SAP partners. The challenge of the SAP team is to deliver SAP solutions in such a way that Business processes are supported in a very efficient and effective way by using the standard SAP functions and facilities. Due to the success of the SAP solution we are currently expanding the SAP team.
Strategic Direction of SAP within GEODIS Logistics
The Logistics business is a very demanding branch with a very tough competition. The only way to beat the competition is to innovate and improve constantly. This approach is also crucial for our SAP environment. For the coming period the focus will be on e-commerce and Business Intelligence. On Customer request we already implemented the SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) module but it is obvious that SAP EWM is the future direction and as such it is going to be implemented for more Customers.
