Combined intralogistics expertise: ORBIS and proLogistik enter into strategic partnership

Logo of proLogistik GmbH & Co. KG

The SAP consulting and software company ORBIS and proLogistik GmbH + Co KG from Dortmund, an IT system house for hardware and software solutions in intralogistics, have agreed on a strategic partnership. The aim of this cooperation is to support customers holistically and with bundled expertise in networking and optimizing their intralogistics processes in the sense of Industry 4.0. To this end, ORBIS has seamlessly integrated the pick-by-voice dialog systems from proLogistik (pro-Voice) into the SAP Business Suite thanks to the innovative technology of the ORBIS Multi-Process Suite (ORBIS MPS).

Through this partnership, ORBIS AG has added proLogistik's pick-by-voice systems to its intralogistics portfolio and can now offer its customers a complete portfolio for paperless data collection in internal logistics that is fully integrated in SAP software. It ranges from pick-by-scan via mobile device or forklift terminal to pick-by-vision with augmented reality data glasses to pick-by-voice with voice commands. Whether storage and retrieval, picking, packing or inventory in the warehouse: the customer can now use the most suitable technological process for each intralogistics process.

In addition, as part of the cooperation, ORBIS can also provide customers with proLogistik's high-quality hardware, which is developed, produced and repaired exclusively in Dortmund, for their in-house logistics projects.

Through the partnership, proLogistik gains access to the comprehensive range of services offered by ORBIS with regard to internal logistics in the SAP environment and can use ORBIS MPS as a modern solution for dialog-supported process control. With ORBIS MPS, the processes in intralogistics, but also in production and service, are networked, dialogued and visualized bidirectionally and in "real time" with SAP processes in the sense of Industry 4.0 - regardless of the end device. In this way, it efficiently supports the paperless data flow in intralogistics.

With this strategic partnership, both ORBIS and proLogistik optimally complement their own intralogistics expertise. Customers benefit from the resulting synergies because they receive the best possible support in setting up end-to-end, efficient and transparent internal logistics process chains. At the same time, the cooperation opens up opportunities for both companies to develop new business areas.

ORBIS will be presenting the use of the proLogistik pick-by-voice system and its seamless integration into the SAP Business Suite to the general public for the first time in showcases at this year's LogiMAT in Stuttgart (March 14-16, 2017). Interested trade visitors can obtain detailed information at the ORBIS booth (Hall 7 / 7D45).
