standard ERP software for the logistics sector.

We offer a

No industry solution

We do not believe in industry solutions because they are overloaded and rigid. Developed from individual solutions, industry solutions contain many functions that you do not need at all. Furthermore, industry solutions are not expandable if you build up new business areas or grow. As a result, you are restricted, bound and inflexible.

Standard solution, add-ons and individual adaptions

Instead of developing industry solutions, we always orientate ourselves on the standard ERP solution Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV/Navision) and use other technologies such as Microsoft Office 365, the Microsoft Power Platform and industry-specific add-ons. If processes cannot be mapped, our experienced developers will program individual adaptations for you. This distinguishes us significantly from our competitors.

The structure is modular. Your system remains updatable and flexible, so that you can map extensions quickly and easily. And you remain independent of the provider.

Specialist in logistics

We are familiar with the requirements of a company that deals with the logistics and transport of its own goods itself (e. g. GFS eG). We also have know-how when it comes to pure logistics companies (e. g. DAF). Logistics is no longer just about determining optimal routes. Rather, tools are needed with which all processes can be controlled. These include, for example, shipment tracking, electronic data exchange or the homologation tool.

Your challenges:

Both B2B trade and B2C trade have been accelerating for some time now. Especially private households order more and more goods online and expect punctual or fast, but also an environmentally friendly delivery. Preferably without additional costs. Despite the excitement about unpunctual, damaged or even missing goods, the trend continues. Expectations are also increasing on the part of the sales department (in the logistics departmen) or on the part of retailers (in the case of logistics service providers). Punctual deliveries at the lowest prices are demanded. Logistics departments and service providers are therefore in a constant state of conflict and must aim to optimize the entire supply chain in order to remain competitive.

Your challenges:

  • expectation ofshorter delivery times
  • expectation of environmentally friendly logistics
  • expectation of low costs or no additional costs
  • expectation of transparency (Where is my delivery now?)
  • optimal use of stock levels
  • software stand-alone solutions

Our solution:

1
Standard ERP solution

“Our processes are far too individual for a standard solution.” You thought wrong! Experience has shown that we can map about 90% of our projects in the standard. This is a matter close to our hearts, so that your system remains updateable and you remain independent. The basis of our work is the industry-independent ERP solution Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV/Navision).

2
Pre-built add-ons

If the standard solution is not sufficient, we can solve some challenges quite easily with our own add-ons or those of our partners. In addition, Microsoft products such as Microsoft Office 365 or the Microsoft Power Platform complete your business software so that you can work perfectly.

Individual adaptions

If you require further special functionalities, we can also solve your challenges by individual adaptations. Take a look at the requirements we have already implemented in practice for our existing customers. Can you find yourself again? If not, please contact us and together we will find a solution for you.

1
Standard ERP solution

The standard ERP solution Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central forms the basis of our solution. This enables you to network all departments or the entire supply chain (core and support processes) and provide a 360° company overview. All relevant core areas that are of interest for data exchange with logistics are mapped.

  • Finance

    Manage accounts receivable and payable and asset management, reconcile bank accounts and manage month-end closings. Built-in dashboards let you track down patterns and trends faster. Forecasting accuracy is optimized accordingly.

  • Sales and service

    Based on data, you are able to focus on the right sales opportunities and continuously track sales performance in your individual dashboard. Track employee tasks, workloads and competencies to allocate resources efficiently and better serve customers. Quickly create quotes, manage contacts, write sales invoices and process payments.

  • Projects

    Plan your capacities and resources, estimate budgets and costs and calculate costs for orders and processes.

  • Supply-Chain

    Manage your entire supply chain. Predict the perfect timing for reordering based on sales planning and inventory levels. Manage suppliers, take advantage of discounts and avoid reminder fees. You can also handle returns with ease. In the warehouse, you can easily track every item posting and movement.

  • Production and merchandise management

    Plan and control your entire production (including bills of material and routings) on the basis of sales forecasts. Create production orders in no time and have material requirements and availability checked automatically. You can also convert automatic order proposals based on sales planning and stock levels into orders in just a few clicks.

  • Reportings and analysis

    The central consolidation of data from financial accounting, sales, service, production, warehouse and logistics provides you with an accurate 360° view of your business and a 360° customer view. Employees can quickly and individually assemble both your dashboard and reports, and are able to identify trends, prevent problems in advance and deliver compelling customer experiences.

Pre-built add-ons

The standard does not fully meet your requirements? No problem. We, Microsoft or our partners offer supplementary modules to meet your industry- or company-specific requirements. It is also very easy to connect data sources and services such as Excel files, SharePoint lists and CRM system.

An exemplary selection of additional modules for logistics follows. If your requirements are not met, please contact us.

  • Document management

    For professional document management, we offer you an interface to third-party software (e. g. D3 or the fully integrated solution Document Capture). Manage documents anytime, anywhere.

  • Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

    With Anveo EDI you exchange data with ease

    • with customers (e. g. orders, invoices, credit notes, shipping notifications, article data, availability, prices),
    • with partners (better business relations through automated processes),
    • with suppliers (e. g. order processing, order confirmations, availability or delivery notes) or
    • between sites/clients (e. g. financial data and item information).
  • Microsoft Office 365

    The standard ERP solution Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central runs smoothly and barrier-free with Office applications such as Excel, Word and Outlook. Your mail server is professionalized by Microsoft Exchange Online and your documents are stored online on Microsoft SharePoint for everyone to access. You also work together in Microsoft teams.

  • Microsoft Power Platform

    The Microsoft Power Platform helps companies to collect, transform and cleanse data from a wide variety of data sources (Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Azure, etc.). The data can be easily transferred into a data model to create meaningful reports.

  • Mobile data acquisition

    With our add-on anaptis Mobile Logistics you are able to map all standard warehouse processes on the move.

  • Payments

    With the OPplus add-on you can optimize your payment transactions (import and export) with manufacturers, wholesalers or end customers. Automate your processes (clearing, initial account assignment, etc.) and get more transparency about your payments.

Individual adaptions

Do you have very specific business processes that cannot be mapped either in the standard system or by an add-on? No problem. Our experienced developers will find a solution. The following is a selection of examples of customizations we have already implemented for our logistic companies. However, if your requirements are not met by these, please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • Automatic e-mail dispatch

    We implement the function that mails are automatically send to your customers as soon as a delivery note is booked.

  • Homologation

    You will receive the certified vehicle registration documents from the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (KBA) as a template and must now enter vehicle-related information on them. To do this, we will program a form for you to print the missing information on the vehicle registration document.

  • Integrated release rights

    We implement an extension for you, with which you can determine regulations for integrated release rights. The handling is very intuitive and the tool is easily adaptable to the conditions of different industries and companies. Employees can see at any time which criteria have not yet been met and still need to be adjusted.

    The bottom line is that you improve your process reliability and take an important step towards the paperless office.

  • Truck scale connection

    For the determination of the weight of goods such as sand, we offer you the connection of a truck scale to your ERP system. This way the weight is displayed in the sales order.

  • Overdelivery

    For goods such as sand and foil, the quantities delivered sometimes vary. By means of our customization it is possible to vary the delivery quantities in your ERP system within certain limits (e.g. 10%). A possible example would be if instead of 1.5 tonnes of sand, for example, 1.55 tonnes of sand is delivered.

  • Shipment tracking

    For optimal shipment tracking, we offer you an interface to third-party software (e. g. Multiship). This enables you to print labels, for example, and track your shipments optimally.

  • Tour planning

    For optimal route planning, we implement an interface to third-party software (e. g. Wanko). This allows you to optimize your tours – even across drivers.

Too complicated?

Our technology interpreter Theo explains.

Think of the solution like a burger. You have a base that is the same for every customer. You can make small changes to this base (e. g. different dough shapes such as multi-grain or sourdough). In addition, each customer can put together the toppings as they wish. Depending on preference and need.

This is also the case with our solution. You receive the standard product Dynamics 365 Business Central. We realize 90 % of the projects  in the standard solution – but sometimes small changes are necessary. And in addition, our customers purchase apps from us or our partners.
