SAP WM Consultant
San Francisco, CA
SAP WM Consultant
The client is a large organization that went live with SAP/EWM & WM domestically in the middle of 2015. They are now about to deploy EWM and WM to numerous sites throughout Europe. The client now needs an SAP WM consultant to assist in the deployment to these countries.
The consultant hired will be walking into a large global team. They will immediately be working towards quickly understanding and becoming an expert on the domestic template. The faster they understand that template, the faster they can be utilized to effectively deploy WM to the numerous sites in question. While EWM is only getting put into production in a couple sites throughout Europe, they are putting SAP WM into production into at least 17 sites. The majority of these sites are Manufacturing centers, but some are also distribution centers. The client utilized internal resources and resources from the SI to get the initial WM system into production “ state-side”. The consultant hired must be comfortable working along side both internal folks and “ still utilized” resources from the SI. The consultant hired into this position must be well versed in SAP WM and all of it’ s functionality. The more experience the consultants have in deploying WM globally (and most specifically Europe), the better.
The majority of the sites that this consultant will be rolling out SAP WM to sit on some sort of legacy warehousing system (mostly Red-Prarie). They expect there to be some level of resistance towards leaving Red-Prairie. So the consultant hired will be asked to assist in managing the change centered on that. This will include, but isn’ t limited to doing some level of training to the user community, showing best practices, new system functionality, benefits of the new system… Not to be mistaken, though, the primary responsibility is to configure and deliver an effective global footprint.
From a technical perspective, the consultants hired should have 10+years of SAP WM. The consultants would benefit from having numerous past projects deploying SAP WM to global locations (most specifically Europe). Perfect communication skills are required.
