Pipework systems expert builds new logistics center

Intuitive warehouse software as growth engine


All warehousing processes and functions in the new international logistics center of Jacob Söhne GmbH & Co. KG are handled using the viadat 9.0 warehouse management system from viastore SOFTWARE.

Jacob Söhne GmbH & Co. KG, the No. 1 manufacturer of modular pipework systems, is currently implementing a new international logistics center at its headquarters in Porta Westfalica, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. Following its completion in 2018, warehouse management will be handled using the viadat WMS from viastore SOFTWARE. viadat manages inventories, storage locations, and picking and packaging operations, and it controls all processes from goods receipt to goods issue – reliably, intelligently and efficiently. “Our intralogistics must be able to keep pace with our customers’ growing demands,” says Managing Director Patrick Jacob. As one of the first operators, JACOB will receive the new viadat release 9.0, which offers an intuitive user interface and the highest possible level of flexibility.

The company’s purpose in investing in the new center is to secure continued sustainable growth. “Our new web shop allows our customers to order goods quickly and conveniently, around the clock – with guaranteed next-day delivery. The new logistics center with state-of-the-art software ensures that they will continue to receive precisely the products they have ordered – at the right time, in the right amount and to the right place,” adds Patrick Jacob. In addition, the company benefits from increased transparency and more efficient workflows.
