Our Client’s Challenges
In their quest for operational excellence, the company recognised the limitations of their existing paper-based and manual processes. The reliance on these traditional methods resulted in inconsistent data, hampered productivity, and increased vulnerability to theft. Acknowledging the imperative need for change, the company embarked on a journey to digitise its processes, choosing On Device Solutions to lead the SAP Inventory Manager implementation. Our client’s confidence was affirmed when we presented a customised demo of the SAP Inventory Manager mobile application, showcasing its alignment with the company’s unique business requirements.
After the successful demo, the company entrusted ODS with implementing the SAP Inventory Manager mobile application for its Central Warehouse. Subsequently, within only six weeks, we overhauled our client’s intricate business processes in close collaboration with their IT and business teams.
The transition from manual data entry to the real-time power of SAP Inventory Manager streamlined the company’s stockroom operations, unlocking newfound levels of automation, efficiency, and accuracy while reaffirming its dedication to environmental sustainability.
