IT expertise

IT, system, processes. Digital logistics. Even today, inflexible IT systems often impede companies in their agility. “Quicker, more secure, more reliable … and more flexible”, these are the IT requirements in logistics. With our know-how we support the entire logistics process. From consulting and conception, through usability studies and design, up to the technical implementation and individual programming: everything from one source. From providing process-neutral networks and infrastructures, through procurement, set-up, maintenance and disposal of hardware and software, up to hosting and virtualisation projects.

Full transparency in movement and portfolio.

IT infrastructure
Perfect is just good enough.

Fast networks, stable internet connections, IT-supported telephone and video equipment that all has to work perfectly so a company can work profitably. We’ll optimally coordinate the network, server, hardware and software with each other.

Warehouse management
Our warehouse is transparent in the IT system.

We control our warehouse locations with a stable IT warehouse management system – abbreviated as WMS. For this purpose, we have individually developed a standard system further. Through this it can be freely configured to your requirements, has a modular structure and more than 1,000 functions; paperless order picking, fork-lift control system and any number of expansion possibilities included.

We connect “system-to-system” via interfaces, thus creating the basis for communication with your IT. Which is how we create full transparency in warehouse movements and inventories.

Transport management and tracking & tracing
All in one - making your life easier.

Every consignment and every transport has to be planned. Data is exchanged and status information reported. Settlement is done paperless and across networks, with interfaces to customer systems and to the warehouse management system. So you and we can keep an eye on which consignment is underway at the moment and where it is at all times.

These are some of the functions offered by our transport management:

  • Order recording and administration
  • Resources management
  • Fleet management
  • Tours and route planning
  • Telematics
  • Tracking and tracing
  • Evaluation and reporting
  • Service provider selection

Software development
Nothing works without IT talent.

Our IT experts implement logistics concepts such as efficient consumer response and supply chain management in software. On the basis of PHP and .net, they develop individual software, adapt standard solutions to every task in the logistics process and connect systems with systems.
If possible, we integrate ready-made software solutions in the system landscape. If necessary, we develop new ones.

Digitisation and innovation management
What does further development mean to us?

Implementing new technologies and developing innovative solutions – that’s part of the Schäflein strategy. We hold investments in companies from the IT environment; we have partnerships with universities and work with start-ups.

Overview thanks to a professional view.

A professional project management team is an absolute must. This is the only way to keep costs, time and deadlines under control. Depending on the task, we form the right teams, which take care of their project all-inclusively, meaning interface problems don’t even occur.

Datencubus® / Portals
Big Data? No problem for us.

We’ll provide customer portals for you as well as logistics portals with management consoles – planning, evaluations, status reports, recording tools, KPI systems, communications platform. All these functions are included here. And if necessary, we’ll also integrate several partners and different system users in one logistics chain.
