With our Healthcare Model Company, we offer preconfigured, installation-ready and end-to-end software modules that broaden the SAP standard and are tailored to the special requirements of the healthcare sector.

Your benefit? Take advantage of our detailed process know-how, honed and perfected through long-term customer partnerships in the healthcare sector.

Solutions for the entire Value Chain

With our Healthcare Model Company, we have a framework that already includes your processes. Working together, we find out what you need beyond the framework and then implement these requirements rapidly. Through this joint effort, your key users get their hands on the EWM system early on. This saves you time and costs, reducing the risk from the start.

Project management according to the SAP® ACTIVATE principle

  • Discover: This phase lets you get acquainted with the SAP functions provided
  • Prepare: Based on our expertise and years of experience in the healthcare sector, we suggest reference processes. These include specific requirements from pre-wholesale, pharmaceutical wholesale and online pharmacies – whatever fits your business model.
  • Explore: Using a fit-gap analysis, we determine together which processes are missing and which modules can be rounded out
  • Realize: During this phase, we configure the software and implement developments. Using emulation and simulation models and working with our customers, we can test all the processes without a real warehouse. This minimizes the testing and ramp-up phases of the logistics system and keeps the project risk to a minimum
  • Deploy and run: During all of project management, you work closely together with our implementation team until everything is running like clockwork
  • 24/7 Hotline support: After startup, our Hotline provides you with support, 24/7 in ongoing operation

End-to-end SAP® solution

Profit from an end-to-end SAP® solution with direct integration of the subordinate systems and use of KNAPP building blocks – proven software modules in SAP technology.
