Integrated Dispatch Management (IDM)

Planned to perfection – Tour planning and dispatching with SAP

Innovationspreis IT Best Of 2014 Initative MittelstandThe combination of SAP OGSD pre-dispatching and IDM (Integrated Dispatch Management) ensures optimum results from margins. The innovative SAP software solution IDM was developed by Implico, a consulting company specializing in logistics and SAP systems. Implico worked with practitioners from many companies to produce a unique, all-in-one solution for intelligent transport planning.

IDM helps dispatch planners create optimum tours: orders from SAP are combined with resources such as currently available vehicles, for example, to ensure the best possible results.

Lower costs
Thanks to features such as real-time tour optimization, the solution effectively lowers transportation costs by reducing factors such as kilometers driven, drive time, vehicle use and overtime by up to 15 percent.

Faster planning
Thanks to intelligent support from the system, IDM helps you reduce the time needed for planning and dispatching by up to 80 percent.
