Internet of Things.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is actually pretty simple: interconnected physical devices that can monitor, send or exchange data. But it fits today’s need for real-time visibility and connectivity of all parts in the value chain in such a perfect way that it is about to fundamentally revolutionize supply chain management. IoT is the enabler of what we call an agile and intelligent enterprise. As a leading global player in the end-to-end digital supply chain, we can offer you the right approach to benefit from IoT in your business. Be it for your warehouse, transportation or manufacturing.

Instant Innovation Tools
Smooth, efficient operations with IoT. Choose the most efficient option to manage your warehouse operations in real time – with IoT. By integrating sensor data with modern warehouse solutions, you can dramatically improve warehouse throughput, inventory planning capabilities and engage an efficient workforce. We have identified various types of projects that can be launched as standalone initiatives or as combinations of integrated enhancements within the warehouse:
Live visibility of stock levels, location, storage conditions is the enabler of your intelligent and integrated silo operation. Properly integrated into the end-to-end scenario, it not only ensures increased stock accuracy, improves planning, and automates reordering processes but safeguards product quality and offers new business models such as vendor management inventory scenarios.
Connected Worker strategies and solutions are a vital part of the digital transformation of industrial operations to achieve the following goals:
- Improve worker safety
- Get insights beyond the data your safety devices already provide
- Attain a holistic view of employees for awareness and responsiveness in real time
- Increase operational efficiency
- Proof of compliance at all times
Indoor and outdoor position tracking of workers and process integration with geofencing.
Identification of incidents based on wearables, gas detection devices and camera recognition considering a personal shield of the worker.
into S/4HANA or
Integration into the end-to-end process by e.g. pulling permits from SAP Environment, Health and Safety (EHS), documenting statuses, triggering maintenance orders, etc.
Connected Assets & Products.
Internet of Things allows for a data-driven approach to physical asset management. Rather than rely on the traditional “gut feel” tactic when dealing with vehicles, production machines and equipment, an IoT solution allows you to establish performance patterns, utilization of best practices and predictive algorithms that prevent unplanned downtime. From production to distribution to after-sale service, the introduction of IoT allows for the creation of a feedback loop of continuous improvement. We can help in the following ways:
Existing TMS solutions offer only limited insight into the operation of commercial fleets. Often manual input of relevant information is the reason for a considerable reduction of data accuracy and data volume. Modern IoT sensors enable the automated collection of extensive and high-quality data, which enables better operational decisions and long-term process optimizations. We have identified three key IoT applications in transportation:
