PreBilt Wins SAP Innovation Cup
SAP has announced that PreBilt™, a mobile scanning solution for the supply chain, has won the coveted SAP UK&I Digital Supply Chain Innovation Cup 2023. The award recognises the continued innovation in mobile software from The Config Team, the SAP supply chain specialist which developed PreBilt.
Coming up against very strong competition, the innovative gamification aspect of PreBilt for EWM set it apart from other entries and impressed the judges. With the selection criteria based on the most compelling innovation in the supply chain, this was deemed to stand out based on the business value and differentiation it delivers to customers.
The innovative solution enables customers to add gaming elements to any warehouse task, making daily activities more enjoyable for the user and rewarding them when they reach key milestones. Users receive notifications for achievements and can monitor progress at any time, from any PreBilt screen. With widely acknowledged labour shortages across the supply chain, gamification has excelled as a means to aid recruitment and retention by improving employee engagement and motivation.
Warehouse operatives access gamification as consumers, so bringing this into the working environment is the next natural step. According to Andew Moses, managing director of The Config Team, the company behind PreBilt: “Gamification just made sense to us, as consumers we are used to seeing this technology, whether through exercise apps like Strava, or when we make a 10th purchase at our favourite coffee shop, so why not transfer this to supply chain warehouses.
“I am so incredibly proud that our product development team has been recognised by SAP for the amazing work they have done. We have such an innovative team that are continually coming up with new ideas to enhance PreBilt and make it easier for users and gamification is just one of those. I am very excited to continue sharing the future innovations that are coming soon that truly set PreBilt apart from any other mobile solution for SAP EWM.”
PreBilt for EWM is a rapid-deployment mobile scanning solution that enhances the useability of SAP EWM. With intuitive navigation and configurable screen layouts, PreBilt offers significant useability benefits compared with the SAP standard mobile solution, while innovations in gamification, operator messaging, advanced scanning and voice-enabled capabilities add enhanced functionality to drive operational efficiencies.
