Steel Service Krefeld GmbH is an exciting example of medium-sized companies which have digitalized its entire logistics. The model of success bases on online sales of steel products to industrial clients. Additionally purchase order management and inventory management have been fully digitalized by the use of data glasses and ring scanners. All relevant information from ingoing material up to commissioning are handled by data glasses – Augmented Reality is in place and shortens work processes.
After data acquisition of every product after arrival from the mill the product is real time available for sale at the online shop. Jürgen Beesen is Managing Director of the company. At that time he could not imagine how successful selling steel products online could be for his company. Digitalization has realized double-digit growth for the company in recent years. Decisive competitive advantages were achieved, especially by speed at the order processing, sales and logistics. These benefits are shared with the customers. Additionally the entire company works paperless. This creates additional speed and supports the necessity to protect our environment whereever possible. Digitalization shapes the future.
