Press information: Published on in Company, Locations

KNAPP is pleased about the recent award of the SAP Recognized Expertise in Supply Chain Planning and Logistics. With this award, SAP annually honors those partners who have proven expertise and competence in a selected solution and/or industry. KNAPP IT Solutions, the competence center of the KNAPP group for SAP® solutions, has already successfully implemented more than 90 projects based on SAP® EWM (Extended Warehouse Management).

KNAPP has been an official SAP partner since 2012 and, with its approximately 100 SAP® EWM experts, offers a wide range of services regarding implementations and services for the SAP® module Extended Warehouse Management (EWM). Since 2016, SAP has repeatedly honored the fulfillment of this service portfolio with the award of SAP Recognized Expertise in Supply Chain Planning and Logistics. For this, SAP partners have to provide a certain number of certified consultants as well as customer references or validated projects.

“Already in 2021, SAP announced adaptations of the SAP Recognized Expertise program introducing a more comprehensive competence framework. We are very proud that our certified SAP® EWM experts, our project successes, and, above all, customer evaluations have enabled us to convince SAP of our skills again this time,” Gerald Lassau, Managing Director of KNAPP IT Solutions, is pleased to say.

Specialty: template and roll-out solutions for the replacement of non SAP® WMS systems

Behind this success are numerous Go-Lives with SAP® EWM in manual, RF or voice-guided, up to highly automated warehouses. Not only do customers with KNAPP automation rely on KNAPP for EWM implementation, but also customers with other automation solutions appreciate the KNAPP expertise for sole SAP® EWM incl. MFS (material flow system) implementations in the course of greenfield, extension, or retrofit projects.

“A proven and future-proof approach for modernizing logistics software with a transition to SAP® EWM is the template solution for the roll-out to multiple warehouse locations. It enables an efficient software implementation and is flexible enough to react to market changes or expansions in the warehouse network,” Gerald Lassau explains the proven KNAPP approach for customers with retrofit requests for multiple locations. In this respect, SAP® EWM by KNAPP is optimally adaptable to industry and warehouse-specific requirements. With the integrated material flow system, the software links directly to the PLC control system, reduces interfaces, and thus, enables seamless process control in an SAP® IT system landscape.
