Your SAP warehouse management is in good hands with us
The use of a warehouse management system is essential for efficient intralogistics. The warehouse management module SAP WM (Warehouse Management) contained in the SAP ERP standard maps complex logistics processes. Particularly simple and small warehouses, which would overload the complexity of SAP EWM , are particularly suitable for SAP Stockroom Management.
As an SAP partner, we rely on warehouse management in SAP – this allows processes to be mapped more transparently and made more productive. Based on your requirements, we rely on SAP WM or on the successor solution SAP EWM. If new functionalities such as an MFS connection or multi-level transports are used in your company or are planned for the near future – there is no way around SAP EWM.
We would be happy to support you in finding the right strategy for your company and implementing it successfully!
Why should you use SAP WM?
A transparent material flow in your company should be achieved by controlling and monitoring all internal goods movements. An SAP solution provides greater transparency and improved management of operations in your warehouse through real-time data and faster information availability. SAP WM (Warehouse Management), a warehouse module from SAP, is used for this purpose. SAP WM enhances the existing logistics processes in SAP MM. WM enables you to map the complete process along the supply chain.
What is SAP S/4HANA Stockroom Management?
With SAP S/4HANA 1909, SAP has released another option for you to manage smaller warehouse processes. With SAP Stockroom Management, basic warehouse processes from the existing SAP LE-WM applications can still be used, while dispensing with the advanced functions of SAP EWM.
Stockroom Management allows you to upgrade to SAP S/4HANA without having to perform a complete WM transformation. This makes it possible to continue your already implemented logistics processes beyond the year 2025. The licence is included in the S/4HANA Enterprise Management component.
You want to migrate to SAP S/4HANA? Then you can continue to use the warehouse management functions within the scope of compatibility after the migration. However, since the authorization to use the compatibility scope expires at the end of 2025, you must opt for either an embedded SAP EWM or for the functions of the simple SAP warehouse management S/4HANA Stockroom Management. SAP S/4HANA Stockroom Management functions include important, but not all functions from Warehouse Management.

Is Stockroom Management being developed further?
SAP does not intend to make such investments in SAP S/4HANA Stockroom Management. SAP EWM represents the strategic evolved product for warehouse management operations. SAP S/4HANA Stockroom Management is only focused on supporting existing customers with their currently deployed functionality.
How do we help you?
You can continue to use our add-on solutions without any problems even after a changeover to SAP S/4HANA Stockroom Management. All applications are certified and already SAP S/4HANA-ready. Nevertheless, it is worth checking new requirements or expanding existing applications before the changeover so that you can then get started with suitable apps.
