eSHOP – more than just an online shop

Success in online trade requires digital sales channels that offer first-rate sales experiences. NORDWEST’s eSHOP is more than just an online shop: it encompasses an entire e-commerce concept. In addition to an innovative online shop with B2B, B2C and e-procurement functions, it includes an e-marketing tool, a state-of-the-art search function, browsable catalogues, e-commerce consulting and a centrally organised support concept. 

The eSHOP optimises the procurement process, reduces process costs and allows efficient order processing for such end customers as craftsmen, industrial enterprises and municipal companies. The online product range provided behind the scenes by NORDWEST consists of stock, catalogue and selected manufacturer articles to which individual assortments can be added. Thanks to their detailed product descriptions, they provide the basis for purchasing decisions. The range can be accessed at any time via PC, tablet or smartphone, and end customers can conveniently order products based on their individual terms. Connecting the specialist dealer ERP system to the eSHOP optimises the sales process in every way.

eVEND  

FOR STATIONARY VENDING MACHINE APPLICATIONS 

eVEND is a product vending and management system from our system partner that is implemented in industrial and production-oriented companies. It enables authorised employees to access a precisely coordinated assortment at any time, which can include critical spare parts, hand tools, testing equipment, precision and measuring tools, protective equipment and chemical-technical products. The system’s ability to manage keys or battery-powered devices and handle batches and consumption data also helps to optimise numerous business processes.

Vending machines offer an uncomplicated solution to challenges such as warehouse staff shortages, inaccessible storage locations during night shifts and the time-consuming manual task of reordering standard parts and work safety articles. Vending machines keep articles for day-to-day use and consumables in stock at all times, thereby ensuring process and supply reliability

 

The customised solutions of the automated vending systems include a variety of functions that optimise the stock management and ordering process. To refill the vending machine, for example, the end customer’s storage facility or the specialist dealer can be notified automatically when a certain reorder level is reached. Orders can be sent automatically by email or to connected ERP systems.

Our vending machines are as individual as the end customer’s requirements. The ability to combine different vending machine types guarantees the right solution – whether drawer cabinets, carousel cabinet, conventional lockable rack cabinet or with a weighing unit. There is a suitable concept for every application scenario. Optionally supplemented by our ScanWerk service.

 

Vending machines offer many advantages

  • Security of supply thanks to 24/7 availability
  • Shorter travel times, as they can be placed in decentralised locations.
  • Time savings thanks to automated processes such as requisitions – less manual ordering and administration work
  • Transparency of consumption
  • Inventory control
  • Allocation to cost centres, orders, machines, etc.
  • Analyses via a flexible reporting solution

ScanWerk
 

SCANNER-BASED ORDERING SYSTEM

The scanner-based ordering system ScanWerk is an efficient, precise and cost-effective solution for order processing in companies. ScanWerk enables orders to be recorded quickly and precisely. A simple scan of the barcode replaces the tedious task of manually entering article numbers or product descriptions. This speeds up the ordering process considerably and also reduces the risk of input errors.

Hardware and software are combined to maximise efficient and professional use. Barcodes can be scanned using a camera or a laser. This ensures precise scanning even in unfavourable lighting conditions. The flexible software allows the use of numerous communication channels. 

Orders can be sent by email or exchanged with other systems via an FTP server. This also enables automatic further processing, such as in a connected ERP system. Specialist trade partners who use the NORDWEST eSHOP even have the option of allowing their customers to transfer orders directly to the shopping basket of their online shop.

There are numerous accessories for the scanners designed to optimise use. Whether charging station, belt attachment or additional shock absorbers – the device can be individually configured for the planned site of use. Regardless of whether it is used locally in a WLAN network to scan products in a warehouse or via mobile radio in assembly vehicles or on construction sites:

ScanWerk is the perfect solution to make the ordering process as simple as possible for end customers.

With meine-wartung.de, we offer a comprehensive solution for inspection and maintenance that aims to minimise risks and optimise the performance of the inspected objects. The system provides a large number of product categories as standard, including the required inspection records. A dedicated extension tailored to other testing equipment can also be easily created.
