Schenker Storen

Material Tracking App

With Riwers, Schenker Storen AG has found a software partner who accompanies us from conception to and including implementation of the software projects. Riwers was always able to show its best side through high flexibility, goal-oriented project thinking and technically competent consulting.

A great asset was especially the proactive cooperation in the conception, which ultimately led to a great application. We are therefore looking forward to a further successful cooperation with Riwers.

Website

Schenker Storen is a traditional Swiss company for the production of blinds and shading solutions. For the digitalization of the material flows, a mobile application is being developed which allows the material to be tracked and dispatched between the individual warehouses and building sites.

Initial Situation

  • The customer has a scanner system in the central warehouse, which is connected to his ERP system (basis MS Dynamics AX). After the materials are dispatched from this central warehouse, there is no further information about the location of the materials. A new mobile scanner will be used to track the materials outside the central warehouse.
  • The customer wishes a long-term software partner for the development and maintenance of this and other applications.

Challenges

  • The creation of a new infrastructure to connect the mobile application with the existing ERP system.
  • The creation of a simple and lean user interface with which mainly non-technical end users should work.
