platbricks® - Smart Logistics Unlimited

It’s not easy to digitalize business processes from start to finish, avoid stand-alone solutions, and prevent complexity all while staying within budget. What do you need to get rid of the “not” in that sentence? A platform with standard interfaces to ERP/WMS systems, a control center with real-time capability, expandable process logistics and configuration options, incredibly simple-to-use apps with state-of-the-art user interfaces, and fully billed as software-as-a-service.

There are still numerous digitalization gaps and paper-based processes in logistics. A few examples of where there is potential for change include the desktop computers in goods receipt, a lack of storage space management in production, and paper-based picking and replenishment processes.

We have developed just the thing to meet all these requirements: platbricks®. This is a digital, modular system that can be used to orchestrate departmental and companywide logistics processes, as well as to execute these processes in a mobile way via smart wearables.
