Ehrlich Logistics GmbH & LOG ONE GmbH (Kopie)
Ehrlich Logistics GmbH & LOG ONE GmbH are full service providers in the fields of forwarding and warehouse logistics based in Wittenberg. Their services include the transportation of refrigerated and dry goods in freight, part-load and mixed goods transport. Using BinMan, all customer accounts as well as the vehicle and driver balances are presented on the basis of the activated loading equipment movements. To this end, the standard BinMan solution was tailored specifically to the customers’ requirements profile.
Specification and structuring phase
Based on a specifications workshop and the communicated requirements of Ehrlich Logistics GmbH and of LOG ONE GmbH, LOGSOL created a solution proposal for mapping all the requirements in BinMan. The customers were particularly focused on practice-orientated implementation of the adjustments.
The BinMan entry screens were tailored to the operational processes of Ehrlich Logistics GmbH and LOG ONE GmbH and expanded with numerous new functions. This also included the revision of the master data module, with which the loading equipment balances can now be presented and analysed, with the exception of individual vehicles and drivers.
Further focuses in the software development:
- Supra/sub-account structure of companies including levels (location, vehicle, driver)
- Module for lorry allocation (definition of driver-vehicle relationships, vehicle takeover and handover)
- Function for loading equipment voucher management
- Individual entry screen with customer-specific filter options
- Evaluation module for portfolio analysis of the fleet and the drivers
- Provision of a QA test system
- Automated, browser-based test runs
- Model-driven software development
All software developments were tested extensively for full functionality/usability by the persons responsible for the project at the customers and at LOGSOL in the QA system provided and approved by the client. Moreover, additional solution approaches emerged, which were specified later on in the course of the project and were implemented in full for the clients.
Introduction phase and go-live
In the course of the introductory phase, the key users of Ehrlich Logistics GmbH and LOG ONE GmbH received personal on-site training in Wittenberg. Additionally, LOGSOL supplied the individual databases and the separate domains for the clients. LOGSOL also assumed the initial data migration of the master data using CSV imports and manual inputs. Since the successful go-live, a free help-desk system and a support hotline have been available to Ehrlich Logistics GmbH and LOG ONE GmbH.
about working with LOGSOL:
“SHORT CHANNELS AND FAST REACTION – LOGSOL. AFTER WE GOT TO KNOW EACH OTHER AND FINDING THE 'COMMON LANGUAGE', A BRILLIANT PARTNERSHIP DEVELOPED. QUESTION – PROPOSAL – SOLUTION TO PROBLEM. CONCISE AND EFFICIENT DISCUSSIONS CHARACTERISE COMMUNICATION, FAST IMPLEMENTATION OF THE SOLUTIONS DISCUSSED CHARACTERIZE LOGSOL.”
about the decision in favour of BinMan 2.0:
“WE WERE LOOKING FOR A FLEXIBLE PALLET PROGRAM THAT COULD MAP ALL OUR PROCESSES. WE LACKED EVALUATION OPTIONS AND PROMPT ACCOUNT STATEMENTS FOR COORDINATION WITH THE CUSTOMERS, DRIVERS AND VEHICLE BALANCES WERE BARELY VERIFIABLE. THE MARKET FOR SUCH SOFTWARE WAS MANAGEABLE, THE SUPPLY RATHER SHALLOW. IN LOGSOL, WE FOUND A PARTNER THAT WANTED TO DEVELOP 'OUR' PALLET PROGRAM TOGETHER WITH US BASED ON THEIR SOLUTION.”
Development at the customer since it started using BinMan 2.0:
“TOGETHER, WE MADE OUR VERSION OF BINMAN GROW – ALTHOUGH WE TOO HAD TO LEARN TO HANDLE THE NEW TOOL. SINCE THEN, PROCESSES HAVE BECOME MORE TRANSPARENT. WE ARE NOW ABLE TO PRODUCE EVEN TIME-CRITICAL EVALUATIONS AND ANALYSES AT THE PRESS OF A BUTTON. DRIVER AND VEHICLE BALANCES ARE PRESENTABLE AND ABOVE ALL VERIFIABLE. WE HAVE REACHED THE PROJECT AIMS. NOW FOR THE FINE-TUNING.”
