Optimize your supply chain with SAP

With many years of expertise in the areas of inter- and intralogistics, abat supports you in mapping and optimizing all processes related to warehousing and transportation.

We design, implement and support SAP solutions to optimize the supply chain.

You can get these solutions from us:

  • SAP Warehouse Management (SAP WM) and SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM)
    abat continues to support its customers in optimizing existing WM solutions or in switching to SAP EWM. We help with the question: Is a switch to SAP EWM mandatory at 2027 or do functionalities of Stock Room Management in SAP S/4HANA still cover the current requirements for warehouse processes? Our self-developed report answers this question by checking your SAP systems.
    With SAP EWM, you can map both simple and highly complex warehouses in a central system, model intermediate steps in the storage and retrieval of goods, and display inventories and processes transparently at all times. The integrated material flow control allows you to control various automated warehouse technologies, such as automatic warehouses, conveyor technology and driverless transport systems.
  • SAP Transportmanagement (SAP TM)
    Improve your on-time delivery performance and reduce your freight costs. SAP TM and planned further developments support you in fully covering your transport chain on an international level. As a ramp-up partner, abat is involved in the redesign of SAP TM and passes on this experience to customers.
  • SAP Service Parts Management (SAP SPM)
    Optimal logistics processes are required for the on-time delivery of spare parts, in sufficient quantities, to the right locations. SAP SPM supports these processes across the various logistics levels of the aftermarket.
  • abat Logistics Application (aLA)
    The portal solution developed in-house, consisting of a variety of apps, simplifies communication between business partners in the supply chain.

There is a lot of trust, so you also have the freedom to try out something new - but if it doesn't work out, there is also the necessary support. That's how I've learned so much!
