Mobile Inventory Management
Ørsted is one of the leading energy groups in Europe. Their business is based on the acquisition, production, distribution and trade of energy and related products in Europe.
Today, 85% of ørsted’s heat and power is produced by fossil fuels – mainly coal. Over the next 30 years, Ørsted is aiming to reduce its CO2 emissions per kWh produced to 15% of current values. In the next few years, they are aiming at halving CO2 emissions per kWh produced.
Headquartered in Denmark, Ørsted has approximately 6.000 employees and a turnover of DKK 55 billion in 2010.
For businesses, efficient business processes are key to achieving the strength of resources and thereby coping better than the competition. With efficient and rational processes, employees remind you to spend time on interesting and challenging tasks, so they don’t get tired of bureaucracy.
For hourly-paid employees, mobile solutions are a good way to minimize redundant work steps, paper consumption and ensure the quality of the collected data. Ørsted would therefore like to use mobile inventory management at the offshore base in Esbjerg. The base serves offshore drilling platforms and therefore has a special process for packing goods in containers and dispatching the containers to the drilling platforms. The solution had to be integrated with SAP MM and fit the process used at the offshore base in Esbjerg. Standardized software solutions are fast to use, they often cost less than custom-made solutions and have continuous update tools – but they rarely fit completely into the business process.
With SAP’s standardized mobile inventory management solution, Ørsted got a lot of functionality. With mobile scanners, employees can quickly track materials, make receipts, and hand over and transfer goods. Inventory management is built using SAP’S Agentry structure, which ensures that the standard solution can be easily expanded and customized. After a short three-month implementation period, the necessary adaptations and changes were implemented. Ørsted now uses a standard solution that is perfectly suited to their process.

Mik Risom Pedersen, Manager, Integration & Security:
“In recent years, 2BM has been our preferred partner on mobility, and therefore it was a matter of course to use them to implement and customize the SAP Inventory Manager. Their consultants are professional and very knowledgeable about mobile SAP technology. We are delighted with the solution they delivered, which has really reduced the workload for employees on our offshore base. “
