Wanko - Frauenhofer Validierung

On 06.10.2020 the time had come: Punctually at 2.30 p.m. the project team, consisting of specialists from the Fraunhofer Institute and Wanko Informationslogistik GmbH, defined the completion of the validation for the route planning software PraCar. Thus, the software and logistics specialist from Bavaria is the first company ever whose complete software suite has been validated in all three subareas by the Fraunhofer IML in Dortmund..

The Fraunhofer Institute Dortmund offers a unique platform for logistics software for companies in the industry. Warehouse management systems have already been validated there for 20 years, i.e. examined and verified for functionality and core competencies.

Wanko is now the first company in Europe whose complete software suite (in the areas of warehousing, transport and telematics) has been validated by the Fraunhofer Institute in Dortmund and bears the sought-after validation seal.

Wanko has always been one of the pioneers in the logistics software market. For 48 years, the software company has been at home in the logistics market, offering comprehensive functions, high quality and industry-specific solutions. So it was not surprising that the Wanko team was the first to take this step. An initial validation is always something special for all parties involved, as there is a lot of need for analysis and coordination. If you take the three areas of tour planning, warehousing and telematics software together, they were examined by Fraunhofer IML for more than 6,000 different aspects of functionality. During these very intense days, both sides were able to gather many more insights.

Thus, HR & Marketing Manager Christian Schulz was happy: "For us, this is another step on the way to a successful future: We have continued to grow this year - despite of Corona -, have a state prize winner among our trainees, certify 28 project managers according to IPMA, we have won new customers and now we are the first company ever whose complete software suite is IML-validated. A strong year for a damn strong team. We're on the path we wanted to be on."
