    ORTEC successfully implements the ORTEC solution for SAP ERP at Warsteiner Distribution KG “We were looking to automate our route planning processes – for which we did not previously use any separate application – and to design these processes in such a way as to both optimize our routes and be cost-effective,” said Karen Bayramyan, Finance, Administration and Logistics Manager at Warsteiner Distribution KG. As it turned out, ORTEC’s route planning software helped the company achieve just that. Bayramyan: “Our supply chain has become more efficient and our distribution processes have improved.” The company – one of Germany’s 20 largest beverage wholesalers, operating a total of four sites – has already noticed the positive results soon after implementing the solution: “Since the implementation we have been able to use fewer trucks and cut back on personnel costs and fuel costs,” Bayramyan explained.
