Cooperation in warehouse logistics: io-consultants and topsystem join forces
Heidelberg - 8.3.2016
At the beginning of the month, Heidelberg consulting and planning company io-consultants and topsystem, a specialist and manufacturer of speech-based picking systems, signed a partnership agreement. Both companies thus sealed their intention to intensify cooperation and enhance services for their customers in the intralogistics sector.
“Our paths have often crossed when working on logistics and IT projects over the years. This partnership enables us to provide our customers with improved individual and reliable expertise from the earliest project phase on. The direct inclusion of topsystem’s voice solutions into SAP EWM and LES underlines SAP’s integrative angle,” says Martin Bitz, partner at io-consultants. Intralogistics planning is more than mere process design – logistics facilities, architecture and IT all need to be optimally interlinked. As a general planner, io-consultants takes a holistic approach to logistics, IT, architecture, production and project management, and supports its customers as an SAP Silver Partner with customised SAP and automation concepts from initial planning through to realisation.
