In close cooperation with the asset accounting department, the competence centre ERP/BI has introduced the mobile asset inventory solution OPAL. With this solution it is now possible to:
- easily create inventory lists from SAP and load them onto mobile handheld computers,
- simply record the assets on site with the mobile handheld computers using a QR code scanner and compare them with the list,
- then simply transfer the recorded data (via docking station) to the OPAL inventory module and edit it if necessary,
- automatically synchronise the revised inventory data with the asset data in SAP.
The mobile asset inventory solution makes carrying out inventories much faster, more convenient and less error-prone. Since the project was funded by IuK NRW, the solution could be introduced quickly and cost-effectively. Within the framework of the SAP cooperation with the Cologne Sports University, further synergies can be created here if as planned the same solution is also used there.
