Simplify your logistics processes in SAP Business ByDesign using barcode scanners!


26In many medium-sized companies, the use of logistics processes is mandatory. While larger corporations like to rely on a third-party logistics service provider, it is usually not financially possible for medium-sized companies. Nevertheless, it is very important that logistics processes can be mapped and implemented in an orderly and simple manner. The integration of barcode scanners in Business ByDesign is a helpful component in automating these processes and reducing the burden on employees in the logistics area.
