Acclimation launches warehouse management app

Wed 17 Feb 2021
FYI, this story is more than a year old

Acclimation has launched a new SAP-based application designed to help warehouse users and logistics firms keep track of their distribution processes.

The Warehouse Management app extends SAP capabilities across the warehouse, bringing real-time data on stock management throughout the day.

The app was designed by the Acclimation Mobile Logistics department, and is designed to operate as a device-agnostic application for warehouse management - without conflicting with forklift operators or other staff members.

The app integrates with all SAP systems such as SAP S/4HANA, SAP ERP Central Component (ECC), and SAP Business ByDesign. It can also operate over local wifi networks or 3G and 4G mobile networks.

“Users can also use the app in temporary or seasonal warehouses as necessary, and can enter the warehouse, switch the app on, connect to the local network, and start work,” the company states.

According to Acclimation product manager Stephen Hall, changing customer needs mean that the company needs to better support its client base.

 “Acclimation received a number of requests for spot solutions to extend SAP deployments into the warehouse space and found there was an opportunity to develop the product further for broader deployments that would benefit partners and end customers.”

Warehouse managers can also enable third party logistics providers to access the app. This lets logistics providers access direct SAP updates in real time as they update stock. The Warehouse Management App also works in conjunction with existing radio frequency (RF) infrastructure for a staged decommission of ageing RF infrastructure.

The Acclimation Warehouse Management App is available for use on Android and Windows devices. It can also be packaged and deployed for iOS.

“With the Warehouse Management App, the Acclimation Mobile Logistics team has drawn on its background and deep experience in the warehouse functions of SAP to develop a well-integrated, well-designed and well-built application to bring more value to customers,” says Acclimation practice manager Jason Coates. 

“Acclimation has created a highly intuitive user interface in the Warehouse Management App. The Acclimation team looks forward to continuing to innovate and evolve this product to help support customers and build their business resilience now and in the future.”

Coates adds that the company will continue to develop the app. Automatic updates are available when users opt in.

Acclimation has offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Singapore. The company is an SAP Software and Services Gold Partner with a certification as PCoE (Partner Centre of Expertise).
