2010 KNAPP works with the SAP® logistics project specialist SALT Solutions AG based in Würzburg to implement joint customer projects in Germany.
2012 KNAPP IT Solutions is founded in the summer of 2012 as a strategic expansion of the KNAPP group’s software portfolio. SAP® EWM by KNAPP provides customers with an SAP® IT strategy with better access to KNAPP’s solution portfolio. The partnership between SALT Solutions and KNAPP IT Solutions is expanded as a joint venture. As a consequence, KNAPP customers benefit from over 10 years of experience of SALT Solutions with SAP projects and from the expertise of the team at KNAPP IT Solutions gained from 1,500 WMS/WCS installations.
2013 The early months are marked by SAP® EWM boot camps, training sessions and expanding the team. This year also marks the beginning of the integration of the trusted KNAPP foundational technologies in SAP® EWM by KNAPP, such as the OSR Shuttle™ and the Central Belt System.
2014 After an intensive training period, the young team at KNAPP IT Solutions installs automated high-bay racking in the first EWM project at EGGER in St. Johann in Tyrol as early as the end of 2013. And what a success! The project starts operating in November 2014.
2015 The standard SAP® EWM serves as an excellent basis for complex RF and voice applications in semi and fully-automatic warehouses. An example of this is the gradual implementation of KNAPP’s tried-and-tested operating concept easyUse on the user interfaces of SAP® EWM by KNAPP to provide employees at goods-to-person work stations with the best possible user experience. The first such project was launched in the Netherlands at the Hyster-Yale Group; an OSR Shuttle™ and Pick-it-Easy work stations were integrated in SAP® EWM by KNAPP.
2016 KNAPP IT Solutions implements international projects in healthcare (pharmaceutical pre-sale and wholesale), retail and industry. The solutions range from RF/voice-guided warehouses to complex fully-automated solutions with KNAPP technologies such as the OSR Shuttle™ or Central Belt System.
2018 KNAPP IT Solutions is once again awarded the SAP® Recognized Expertise status as part of the SAP PartnerEdge™ programme. The original 5-strong team from 2012 has grown to a group of 70 SAP® EWM experts and moves into a new state-of-the-art office building in Raaba, close to the company headquarters in Hart bei Graz. The teams of SAP® EWM experts at KNAPP Schweiz (KNAPP Logistiksysteme GmbH) in Schönbühl and KNAPP IT Solutions Bulgaria LLC founded in 2018 in Sofia also expand.
2019 The 50th SAP® EWM by KNAPP solution starts operating and KNAPP now controls complex RF and voice-guided solutions as well as semi- and fully-automatic warehouses in healthcare, retail and industry with SAP® EWM.
2021 With more than 90 implemented SAP® EWM projects, KNAPP IT Solutions has become one of the leading SAP® EWM implementation partners. Our new SAP® EWM experts in Germany at the KNAPP IT Solutions location in Würzburg are continuing on this expansion course.
