Modula WMS software is installed by specialised computer technicians using a wizard that provides a rapid, guided installation procedure. Once the program has been installed on the server and on any clients, and the warehouse has been configured, the system is ready for immediate use. Our WMS comes ready for connection to any ERP through a series of interfaces. For integration with the company ERP, Modula provides templates for the creation of standard interfaces for example with protocols such as ASCII, ODBC or XML. After installation and initial configuration of the warehouse, the staff who will be using the software will receive suitable basic training. On request, additional in-depth training sessions can be organised.

IDOC: SAP protocol
This is a protocol which allows data exchange between SAP WMS and Modula WMS (ASCII format) via IDOC assuming that SAP contains the WM module. Modula WMS must be seen by SAP as a black box to which requests and the results of requests are sent via IDOC.
