Fact Sheet — Viking rapidly deploys SAP MM mobility apps


Viking deploys 7 Fiori based applications pushing their digital transformation forward in 3.5 months.

Viking has been the innovator and leader in maritime and offshore safety equipment for over 60 years. They were facing a point in time where they needed to upgrade their processes and go mobile. They wanted to minimize the time of staff training and make sure that users would adopt the new processes fast, especially those staff and site crew that were not familiar with working in SAP. The solution that Viking needed had to be able to rapidly scale and also be deployed remotely. They wanted whatever solution they decided to choose to also be able to integrate into their existing SAP MM system.

After searching for answers Viking discovered Neptune Software and what they would be able to accomplish with their powerful Neptune DX Platform. This solution was exactly what they needed to make their digital journey a successful one.

Over the course of the next 3.5 internal Viking IT staff and Neptune Software created 7 Fiori type applications for SAP IM, MM, and SD. These apps are built for any iOS device and are UI5 based with a corporate look and feel. The apps have allowed the integration of cameras to scan barcodes allowing for better data quality and computing. All of the applications have a role-based Launchpad which allows for fast access. Viking now has a KanBan and MD fix bin which enables fast replacement to production and manage fix bin. Overall, the suite of applications gives staff more control over deliveries, reservations, packing and shipping on or offline. Training time has been reduced, and end-users love the experience.
