Supply Chain Improvement

With LFS warehouse management system, you optimize and improve every stage of your supply chain, helping you to reduce logistics costs and outperform the competition. When it comes to order picking, LFS has reduced errors by 30%, improved pick times by up to 70%, and has the scalability to handle 1 billion picks per day in a single warehouse. It can also improve space allocation by up to 30% due to its dynamic slotting capability.

Top 6 Reasons To Move To A High Performance WMS

1. LFS FOR A FULL RANGE OF FUNCTIONALITY

What we offer with LFS is an extended, modular solution that is not only a best-in-class WMS, but it can also expand into a Warehouse Control System (WCS), Transportation Management System (TMS), and voice-directed solution. With our solution, you get that full range of functionality, along with deep capabilities within the WMS.

2. THE WAREHOUSE STAYS IN SYNC WITH LOGISTICS ACTIVITIES

Because EPG offers an integrated TMS, the combined solution automatically adapts to update from carriers or partners regarding late shipments, incomplete shipments, and estimated arrival times, so that the warehouse can better allocate labor, assign docks, and ensure labor or machine resources aren’t idle or unavailable. 

3. FUNCTIONAL DEPTH AND EASE OF EXPANSION

Do you need dynamic slotting, returns management, yard management, or packing and shipping features as part of your WMS? With  LFS, modules are pre-installed with the initial deployment, so additional functions can be quickly added. Also, with decades of experience deploying the LFS.wms across industries including logistics providers, food and beverage,  manufacturingautomotive and spare parts distribution, EPG offers a variety of industry-specific configurations. 

4. HIGHLY CUSTOMIZABLE WORKFLOWS, DASHBOARDS, AND USER INTERFACES

Different roles in an organization want to see warehouse and logistics trends in different ways, from associates on the floor, who need task direction and highlights on goals; to managers, who need to plan and allocate labor, to executives, who want to drill down into costs. Having a customizable solution with consistent dashboards and interfaces enables each user to maximize the features and benefits of the solution and accelerates user adoption and increases overall productivity.

5. TOP-TIER VOICE SOLUTION THAT IS HARDWARE INDEPENDENT

LFS comes with voice picking features, but in addition, EPG offers Lydia Voice, a best-in-class solution for voice controlled workflow processes. The system doesn’t force you to use one brand of device hardware, however, EPG does offer innovative options, such as its Lydia VoiceWear vest for hands-free, eyes-free and headset-free voice workflows. Lydia Voice is available on Android, and offers direct integration with SAP® EWM and WM (no middleware), and integration with Manhattan®, JDA®, HighJump®, NetSuite® and 20+ additional WMS solutions.

6. REAL-TIME MANAGEMENT OVER MACHINES AND LABOR

With LFS, the solution has an integrated material flow and warehouse control set of functions that allow all decisions being made — in areas such as order releasing and waving, labor planning, and labor management — to be made in concert with the status of automated materials handling equipment and the progress of work going through those assets. This ensures a smooth, productive flow of work.

Powerful LFS.wms With Functions Using Leading Technology

All process data from intralogistics is brought together in the LFS in real time, where the data is processed and displayed. The control station therefore retains an overview of the current pulse of your logistics. Logistics processes, such as goods incoming, order status and picking, are displayed transparently via a "LFS.timesquare" logistics cockpit. Weak points in the warehouse are identified early on. Employees at the control center, for example, get proactive information about upcoming bottlenecks. LFS also covers employee and workforce management.

LFS clearly shows that modern warehouse management systems are increasingly developing into forward-thinking systems that learn from past experience and support workers with proactive suggestions. For example, you can plan and optimize bin assignment in the warehouse in advance with market basket analyses and route and picking paths. EPG is already integrating artificial intelligence (AI) components into LFS for this purpose. One example is smart order forecasting. Smart forecasting uses past logistics data and external data (e.g. weather forecasts) to make accurate forecasts for future orders.

Warehouse Management Systems – Questions & Answers

A lot of factors have to be taken into account for warehouse management, from what a warehouse management system is and what variants are available to the costs of the system. We answer the most important questions about using and connecting warehouse management systems.

The flexibility of a software solution and its level of integration are equally important. The focus is on fulfilling requirements not only today, but continuing into the future. With our recommendations on selecting a WMS, we have set up a guideline for you.

A good WMS is exceptionally efficient in controlling the entire material and information flow in logistics centres. The system should run trouble-free on all common platforms as well as all market-leading data bases. The solution needs to be extremly flexible to meet your criteria to grow with your requirements.

Warehouse Management Systems need to accomplish more than just managing and organizing a warehouse. A WMS should be able to control the entire flow of goods with only one software version – even across borders and in multiple languages, and with each individual site or subsidiary having different sets of requirements. With LFS.wms, you have a solution that actively controls all of your logistics processes from just one source.

Companies require ever more functions in order to take full advantage of the cost-saving potential within the warehouse and to be able to respond to future requirements placed on the warehouse environment. A flexible WMS, that fits, helps to increase your process workflow efficiency and allows not only for noticeable savings but also ensures your logistics’ future viability at a low cost.

In its standard version, LFS comes as a pre-configured starter package. This package fulfills the basic needs placed on active warehouse management. All additional modules are already pre-installed and can be activated at any time, as needed.

Yes, our LFS can easily be connected to all common ERP systems. For example, our LFS.wms is SAP-certified since 1997. Thanks to the standardized SAP interface, LFS and SAP are easily linked and the effort is reduced to a minimum.

With our private business cloud solution LFS.cloud you are set for the future. We provide you with all features you need. Our solution grows alongside your business. You only pay what you need.

Among our customers, there are numerous small and medium-sized enterprises, working with our warehouse management system LFS. The flexibility and the modular structure of the system allows a compilation according to our costumers' requirements and company size. An overview of our customers can be found on our reference page.

The LFS warehouse management system can be operated on Android. It also runs on other platforms, such as Windows, Linux, and IBM iSeries (AS/400, i5), as well as iOS.

Ehrhardt Partner Consulting (EPC) is a manufacture-independent logistics consultant. As a neutral partner, EPC is your expert in logistics planning and in the implementation of comprehensive supply chain projects.

In contrast to logistics systems that are part of an ERP package, warehouse management systems from specialized WMS providers are specifically geared to the requirements of the logistics industry. As a result, many essential functions are available out of the box in the standard software solution, so extensive customization is not necessary. Solutions such as the LFS.wms warehouse management system also offer a greater range of functions than ERP systems and can therefore be directly adapted to the needs of customers. 

Companies therefore get planning certainty with a future-proof system that is ready for future challenges and growth. Our screens and user interface, as well as the content of our software, are specifically tailored to the requirements of logistics. Your warehouse employees get just the information they actually need. For example, EPG employs a lot of former warehouse and logistics managers, who bring their practical experience to bear on development.

The requirements for any Warehouse Management System are very specific from customer to customer. The scope of the project depends on the required processes and functions, so can also vary a lot. Providing a fixed price for a warehouse management system is therefore not possible. However, our colleagues would be happy to hear your requirements. Just get in touch.

The first group are systems that are part of an ERP package (e.g. SAP). The second group of systems comes from specialist suppliers, such as EPG, who have specific logistics expertise and have developed their own Warehouse Management System. Our whitepaper provides an overview to help you decide what system may suit you.

When it comes to selecting the right Warehouse Management Software, system interfaces are crucial. LFS and SAP, for example, are connected using our certified SAP interface. The data content in the specific IDocs is defined with the customer and SAP consultants, to keep costs to a minimum. We have connected LFS to a wide variety of IT environments and systems in hundreds of projects. Please contact us to discuss the requirements for your Warehouse Management System. 

Our customers range from large corporations to many small- and medium-sized companies, all using our LFS logistics software. It is the flexibility and modular design of our system that allows us to create a solution to match the requirements and size of each of our customers.
