Thousands of companies use SAP’s Enterprise Resource Planning software within their supply chain, but many are still relying on paper-based processes or working with outdated mobile technology, and know they need to move on. Some SAP customers are already budgeting for change due to certain modules and architecture reaching end of life. For resellers, this means opportunities in warehouse operations, manufacturing plants and distribution centres across the UK and further afield. Also, as businesses buy into these mobile applications, it follows that they’ll make an investment in devices too. Even better, you don’t need in-depth SAP knowledge to capitalise on this opportunity. With Ingram Micro, you have access to experts who can help you offer a sophisticated SAP supply chain solution.
Three questions to spot a sales opportunity
Your current customers could be a rich seam of potential, and you can suss this out by asking them three simple questions:
- Are you using SAP – is it ECC or S/4HANA?
- Do you have paper processes within your warehouse, manufacturing plant or distribution centre?
If not –
- Do you have issues with your existing mobility solution?
If your customers answer ‘yes’ to question 1 and ‘yes’ to either question 2 or 3, then there could be an opportunity to introduce PreBiltTM for the SAP Supply Chain…and sell more hardware. How involved you want to be is up to you. With Ingram Micro and The Config Team on your side, all you need to do is start the conversation with your customer, then we can take over if you wish.
Say ‘goodbye’ paper-based processes
Any business in warehousing or distribution knows that customers are more demanding than ever before. They expect real-time interactions and accurate information, and to deliver this there has to be fast-paced, connected process management. Paper-based, manual processes make this impossible. In order to make efficiency savings, keep customers happy and stay competitive, business have an imperative to digitise. And that doesn’t mean limping along with yesteryear’s mobile tech.
Be empowered by PreBilt for the SAP Supply Chain
PreBilt gives businesses real-time, two-way connection to SAP with a suite of out-of-the-box software applications that cover end to end supply chain processes. Paper is replaced with a mobile device to digitally capture data, enabling rapid barcode scanning and fast data entry to streamline the movement of goods through the supply chain. It’s a fully integrated, end-to-end warehouse logistics solution, including 3PLs. It’s quick to implement and easy to use. PreBilt works on most mobile devices. GPS lets companies track stock right up to delivery. It enables users to view videos and files for on-the-job support as well as take and save photos to record discrepancies or damage. And Sign On Glass enables instant electronic proof of delivery.
Boost productivity and profitability
Information is power. Accurate data capture through PreBilt improves stock accuracy and inventory control. Real-time insights mean no delays in answering customer queries. And when users know where inventory is located, they can pick, pack and ship faster.
Mobility can increase productivity by reducing the time users need to carry out daily business processes. More work in less time fuels business growth and profitability. With the right data solutions and supply chain operations, the entire workforce can work faster and smarter to increase profits. Significant costs savings can be made from the removal of paper-based processes and disparate IT systems are no longer required as all processes can be managed within SAP. This makes PreBilt transformational.
Know which side your bread’s buttered on
Roberts Bakery has seen amazing results since implementing PreBilt for SAP Proof of Delivery Before the change, there were three pieces of paper per delivery – a major burden with 51 routes per day and 35 drops per route. Since introducing PreBilt, Roberts Bakery has removed about 2 million pieces of paper from its operation and saved about 180 admin hours a week. Their customers love the ability to make order changes with the driver in a few taps of the app, rather than calling the bakery. Real-time insight has improved the availability of loaves on shelves, driving up sales. The company simply couldn’t have seen or acted on the opportunity to make more sales if they were still relying on slow, paper-based processes. But the advantages didn’t stop there.
