AXIT presents new IT generation for delivery chain management in logistics
The IT company AXIT has presented a new IT generation for the management of delivery chains in logistics at the PraxisForum Logistik in Frankenthal, Germany. The technological advancement of the tool AX4 Open is based on the logistics IT platform AX4 which is used by 150,000 users all over Europe. It allows users to configure cross-company logistical processes by themselves, within only five days and even without programming knowledge.
“The new IT generation makes happy” said Jens Richter, in charge of Customer IT Solutions & Support with DHL Freight. In his lecture the IT manager demonstrated how the new IT generation helps to realize customer-individual logistics solutions within only five days. “Customers are happy when they see that we are able to realize requirements quickly and easily together at the desk. Results are immediately visible.”
The new IT generation’s happiness factor lies in a modular construction system consisting of standardized IT applications which can be flexibly assembled by the user. Once configured, the solution can be adapted to changing requirements at any time. “Paper-based requirements specifications are unnecessary as customer requirements can be turned into IT logic right during the conversation”, explains Frauke Heistermann, member of AXIT’s management.
Among others, AX4 Open applications allow for the integration of various service providers with the delivery chain, for continuous information management or for mapping of data in real time. “There are fewer misunderstandings”, says Arno Runte, manager company logistics with the automotive supplier Muhr und Bender.
80 participants from industry, trade and logistics had followed the invitation to the presentation of a new IT generation to Frankenthal. The PraxisForum Logistik is a well-established industry event giving companies insight into the use of modern IT solutions in lectures and workshops.
