    Warsteiner Distribution benefits from new ORTEC route planning solution

    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. In addition, the ORTEC solution also provides information on customer delivery, which is used for reporting purposes (KPIs) and other initiatives.
