platbricks® - the Cloud-Based Modular Logistics Platform

Digitizing business processes end-to-end, avoiding isolated solutions, preventing complexity, and staying within budget? Not that easy! What do you need to eliminate the "not"? A platform with standard ERP/WMS systems interfaces a control center with real-time capability, expandable process logic, and configuration options, easy-to-use apps with state-of-the-art user interfaces, and 100% software-as-a-service billing.

There are still numerous gaps in digitalization and paper-based processes in logistics. Stationary PCs at goods receiving, a lack of storage location management in production, or paper-based picking and replenishment processes are just a few examples of the potential for change.

We developed platbricks® for this purpose: A digital modular system that can orchestrate internal and cross-company logistics processes and execute them on the move with smart wearables.

 

Optimization of the supply chain

Optimizing the supply chain is a crucial element for competitiveness and customer satisfaction. By using digital technologies and intelligent software solutions, such as those offered by Arvato Systems with platbricks®, process efficiency and transparency can be increased. This leads to seamless integration of your supply chain components, reduces complexity, and enables flexible adaptation to dynamic market conditions.

 

Increased transparency and control

Increased visibility and control in the supply chain are essential for proactive management and risk minimization. platbricks® from Arvato Systems provides a real-time overview of all processes, enabling significantly improved decision-making. This transparency allows companies to identify bottlenecks at an early stage, increase delivery reliability, and improve customer satisfaction. At the same time, the increased control enables more effective resource planning and utilization, which helps to optimize the total cost of ownership.

 

Scalability and flexibility

The modular structure of the logistics platform allows it to be tailored to specific needs, while the flexibility of the solution supports a rapid response to new challenges and opportunities. With platbricks®, companies always remain agile and competitive in a constantly changing market environment.
