DB Schenker x UI5 Converter
– a success story
Until now, the warehouse employees at DB Schenker worked with mobile dialogs provided by SAP EWM RF or with ITSmobile. However, these dialogs are not responsive, i.e. they have a fixed height and width, and therefore have to be adapted for each new end device. In addition, the usability of these dialogs can no longer keep up with modern applications. DB Schenker was looking for a solution for mobile warehouse dialogs that offered a responsive design and better usability.
Another condition was to preserve the logic of the existing dialogs. In addition, emphasis was placed on seamless integration of the application into the existing SAP Fiori Launchpad so that users do not have to switch between multiple solutions.
The introduction of SAPUI5 has provided a new foundation for future-proof interface technology. The focus is on intuitive usability for mobile applications. Thanks to the standardization within the SAPUI5 framework both consistent interfaces as well a high degree of customizability of apps can be achieved. This means that the processes in your warehouse and the associated logistics can be optimized.
Based on this, the goal of the UI5 Converter was to develop a solution that is 100% compliant with the SAPUI5 standard. Additionally, we focused on optimally adapting the software (UI5/Fiori) to the hardware.
The UI5 Converter ensures a highly responsive user interface that allows you to access your SAP EWM system from any device. This allows your employees to easily work with mobile as well as stationary devices – regardless of whether they are running on iOS, Android or Windows.
The UI5 Converter can be implemented as a cloud solution or as a software package that can be installed locally.
