EPG (Ehrhardt Partner Group) reinforces its commitment in the Asian region, specifically in Japanwith his own team from summer 2021. The goal is to position the supply chain execution system EPG ONE with, among others, his warehouse management system LFS and the voice order picking solution LYDIAVoice as a reliable product ‘Made in Germany’. It will also expand Local project implementation and customer support in the East Asia region via local partners.
With the voice order preparation solution LYDIA Voice, EPG has been successfully represented in the Japanese market for more than ten years by its partner AINIX. The company distributes automatic recognition systems and advises on their efficient use. Thanks to this collaboration, many voice order preparation projects have already been carried out jointly. On the other hand, Many Japanese companies in Europe and the United States, such as MISUMI, NGK, NISSIN and YKK, also have many years of experience with the LFS warehouse management system. All of EPG’s logistics software solutions – including LYDIA Voice and LFS – are also available in Japanese.
Alfred Roos, director of business development for the Asia region of EPG, details: “Japan has come a long way in the field of logistics systems and offers highly automated state-of-the-art solutions. On the one hand, this does not facilitate a further expansion of the market », he says. “On the other hand, we see huge potential in the modularity of our comprehensive offering. And that’s exactly where we come in.”
EPG ONE is divided into different solution areas that can be used completely separately or in combination: the warehouse management system (LFS), the voice order preparation solution LYDIA Voice, the dashboard (TIMESQUARE), the AutoStore ATC module and many other products for intelligent management in the field of logistics . Customers can tailor their software packages flexibly according to their needs and, therefore, also respond with great flexibility to changes in requirements. Systems with such a wide range of functions do not yet exist in Japan.
This is one of the reasons why EPG was rated a ‘Challenger’ for the first time in the Gartner Magic Quadrant report for warehouse management systems in 2022.
