LFS goes mobile: V8 for maximum mobility

The whole power of the V8

Mobile, dynamic, transparent: with version 8 of the LFS warehouse management system, Ehrhardt + Partner (E+P) is launching an application that is functionally and visually clearly distinct from its predecessors. As of immediately, LFS.V8 is no longer non-moving but can be flexibly employed on all mobile terminals. The new version runs on all current Android smartphones for instance. What is more, the V8 also has new functions to offer, such as the Truck Driver App, dynamic tour planning and a forwarding feature for conveyor systems. Voice-operated order picking has also been improved in LFS.V8: following the principle of “voice meets vision”, the new version combines all the advantages of Pick-by-Voice and screen dialogues in one technology.

“Nowadays companies want to access their data simply and safely from anywhere”, says Marco Ehrhardt, managing partner of E+P. “The market requirements are changing at breakneck speed. Everything is becoming mobile – in logistics, too. To be instrumental in shaping this development, we decided to open up LFS.V8 for the Android world. There is no operating system that is more flexible and can represent logistics processes better on mobile terminals. For us this platform offers an ideal environment for developing mobile
applications and making them available for logistics.” Another advantage: users can choose which mobile terminal they want to use. This increases flexibility. In addition to specialized industry hardware, standard, commercially available devices can now also be used.

 

This strategic decision led to the Android Logistics Competence Center (ALCC) of E+P. It is the place where the company develops new mobile logistics solutions for Android in conjunction with universities and technology partners.

 

New design, maximum functions

Based on the flat design concept, the LFS.V8 is graphically reduced and has a strikingly clear, modern look. All relevant information can be seen at a glance on the display, and the intuitive user surface makes it easy to retrieve, for example via the touch screen function. Thanks to Unicode, the new version can also be
used internationally – so the right information can be obtained at the right time and the right place.
