SCT Software’s innovative solutions are built into multiple SAP modules, ECC, EWM, and TM, that enable users to add critical functionality to both planning and executing within the supply chain. The solutions offer seamless integration to augment SAP’s core capabilities and help clients to get the most out of their SAP investments. The company’s flagship product, XPS, focuses on the distribution center user and is designed to optimize the packing and parcel shipping process. “It facilitates and automates planning, which allows the warehouse resources to streamline their picking and packing process to reduce the time required to get products out the door,” says Henig. XPS also helps in accessing real-time parcel shipping status information, maintaining full control of small parcel shipping activities, and having better planning and execution of transportation requirements. This empowers clients to effectively meet both internal and customer demands for accurate delivery status and cost information.
Over time, and through dialog with the customers, the company has incorporated enhanced planning capabilities within their software. The result is CSO, a new cartonization offering, that drives operational and planning efficiencies, and helps lower the cost of shipping by optimizing the pack plan for outbound products. The solution systematically suggests the most cost-effective packing option as part of the warehouse process.
Our partnership with SAP has enabled us to create solutions that help clients get the most from their SAP investments
For example, one of their clients was facing problems with planning their outbound shipments. SCT observed that all of their outbound shipments were coordinated through manual process by a sole individual within their organization. To improve the situation, SCT provided the client a routing guide through which they could consider customer-specific requirements and the components of their shipment. “We implemented the routing guide which helped them save a significant amount in the shipping costs, and delivered a dramatic ROI” says Henig. Moving ahead, SCT’s focus is twofold. The company will continue to work closely with their clients to cater to their future needs, while constantly working with SAP to understand the direction of their supply chain solutions. “Our mission and challenge is to continue to fill any gaps that may exist now and in the future to bring value to SAP’s solutions and most importantly to our clients,” concludes Henig.
