Barcode-IT Resolves SAP Application Adoption Issue

When projects don't quite go to plan, it's always good to know that there's someone you can contact to get you out of a sticky situation -which is exactly what happened recently to one of our customers.

 

Barcode-IT originally provided Zebra Technologies hardware to this fibre optic cable manufacturer for their SAP S/4HANA EWM project back in 2022, but following issues with the SAP EWM mobile application created by their incumbent systems integrator, we were contacted by the customer again in late 2023. The mobile app had been deemed unusable by operators due to interface issues following the initial UK roll-out, which subsequently had stalled the roll-out of the project to further European sites and had become a "money pit". 

 

Due to experience gained on past projects with this type of systems integrator, it had been communicated by Barcode-IT consultants that the application might not be fit for purpose during the initial hardware consultation, but sometimes the project is too far down the line or project managers are unwilling to accept the limitations of the application that has been purchased, so the project continued to go live in the UK.

After speaking to the customer about the challenges with adoption of the app, the Barcode-IT team brought in two different specialist SAP EWM mobile application partners to complete a site walk to see exactly how the operators were working and then recommend a best fit solution. Following visits to customers currently using each application, the customer chose the Rocket Mobile solution put forward by Rocket Consulting and are in the process of rolling out the mobile app following testing on their current TC8300 devices, the turnaround time of which was a matter of weeks, not months or years.

Rocket Mobile is compatible with SAP ECC, S/4HANA and SAP digital supply chain platforms and fully integrated into SAP without complex middleware, interfaces or external software platforms, bringing you the best of technical simplicity, improved usability and extended capability to SAP run businesses.

 

Barcode-IT take pride in the fact that we offer an honest and consultative approach when recommending solutions to our customers and will always advise them of the pros and cons of any solution before they commit to purchase. If you have a supply chain challenge that you'd like advice on, please contact us on 01200 441977 for a no obligation discussion.

Paul Brough, Network Administrator at Boughey Distribution comments, “I really appreciate everything Jonathan Pressley and the Barcode-IT team have done to help us get this distribution centre setup in time and for introducing Waizu to make our lives easier when managing all our devices, which will now also be rolled out across our other 2 sites."

Boughey Distribution have paired the Zebra ET60 tablet, mounted on their forklift trucks using specialist mounting brackets, with Zebra DS3678 Cordless Scanners and Zebra ZQ630+ Mobile Printers to create the ideal mobile solution for operators to access their SAP mobility solution. Adding the Wizy EMM and Waizu's Virtual Cabinet software means that devices can be located anywhere within the DC and updated via the EMM remotely.
