IT systems and warehouse management

The information and communication technologies ICT -(Information and Communication Technologies) are irreplaceable in today’s world of logistics.

The solutions we use in our business are not unique only for internal logistics but also for the whole chain of supplier-customer relationships. IT systems that are implemented in our warehouses manage manufacturing, logistics and distribution operations. All of these systems ensure more streamlined, faster and error-free operation of logistics. The flexibility of the IT system allows us implementation in a warehouse with only 2 workers or in operations run by tens of simultaneously working operators.


Jedním ze základních modulů je systém řízeného skladu WMS (Warehouse management system), který představuje komplexní řešení pro automatizaci, evidenci procesů a zásob v řízeném skladu. WMS eviduje rozložení zboží na skladě a řídí práce v celém skladě.

Systém řízeného skladu WMS využívá technologie automatické identifikace a pracuje s „poka-yoke“ nástroji, které zajišťují minimalizaci neúmyslných chyb při manipulaci s materiálem. Operace jsou nastaveny tak, aby dělník nemohl v sériové výrobě při rutinních operací pochybit. Pro zajištění těchto operací systém používá různé typy čárových kódů, bezkontaktní identifikace RFID, pick-by-voice nebo pick-by-light technologie.

 WMS can provide accurate data about logistic flow, simple error-free processes and traceability of all the actions and links in the process.


Management of sequenced logistics is another module of our system. This module is useful to any customer with repeated deliveries in the span of one day, with homogenous or mixed pallets, sequenced parts or sequencing of modules in the correct order. Deliveries to our customers in JIT (Just In Time) and JIS (Just In Sequence) models are reliable and without process errors.

This particular module manages the warehouse of the main provider of logistics services (CELD) which we currently operate on behalf of Škoda Auto a.s. CEDL secures deliveries to plant of Škoda Auto in Mladá Boleslav in two modes "ship2assembly" and „ship2sequence“, which are fully managed by our IT solutions.


Sharing of relevant, up-to-date and definite information via the web portal ensures that all parties involved have get the full picture. Currently approved orders, forecasts of material demands, status of stock en route and in the warehouse makes life easier for all parties concerned.

The system enables monitoring of stock to suppliers but also to customers through the web interface which uses secure certificated communication.


EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) is a concept that allows the interchange of structured electronic messages between computers or rather applications that run on said computers. Systems which manage warehouse operations automatically generate various types of messages and ensure their delivery in the correct format.

The Data are structured according to valid standards in the form of messages. These messages are then automatically transferred without human interference. EDI communication is still the most used data format for electronic commerce transactions.

ID Technology

SAPE can also provide delivery of hardware components to our customers. We are able to offer mobile terminals, RFID technologies, Industrial grade printers and other hardware.


The core of any IT system is softwareis software however our solutions in logistics also demand correct hardware (servery, síťová topologie, přenosné terminály, bezdrátová síť (WiFi), tiskárny) a dále veškeré služby spojené s implementací systému a jeho uvedení do produktivního provozu.

As regards implementation we offer:

  • Software
  • Hardware
  • Managed services including service level agreement (SLA)
  • Clustering and NLB
  • Implementation of Public Key Infrastructure
  • Clustering a NLB
  • Monitoring
  • Backup services
  • Messaging

High availability of our services

We generally aim for high availability of server visualization and services like monitoring and backup management. This, in turn, provides our customers with a service that is more reliable and effective.

The availability is implemented in three areas

  1. High availability on the application level
  2. High availability of the virtual server
  3. High availability in terms of service

High availability on the application level

Part of the application and utilization of cluster services of the system such as failover clustering or load balancing.

High availability of the virtual server

Jedná se rozšířenou konfiguraci virtualizačního prostředí, kdy je celý virtuální server provozován jako cluster resource, tj. že virtuální server jako celek se chová jako vysoce dostupný prostředek.

The advantage is that clustering of virtual servers can ensure high availability of applications that are run on a virtual server even if they were not designed with high availability in mind.

High availability in terms of service

Is not clustering but distribution of service to multiple servers where, in case of outage of service, other tools within the network can still be used. As an example one might list Active Directory service or DNS server.

Each of these scenarios requires the creation and configuration of a cluster on a different level and has its own pros and cons. Because of our experience, we are able to offer a suitable solution that will bring maximum efficiency to the customer at proportional costs.


Monitoring is an optional part of the infrastructure that has high demands on availability. It also provides data that are needed for evaluation of services provided and fulfilment of SLAs.

When proactive monitoring is used, any outage of services caused by hardware malfunction can be avoided. Especially in terms of visualization and high availability, it is possible to utilize backup instead of malfunctioning hardware if correct predictions are made. This, in turn, can prevent short-term outage of services. In case the hardware malfunctions before the startup of the backup, the service will be shut down until the backup hardware within the cluster manages to start up.

Backup and DR

Data backup is an integral part of any infrastructure even when high availability is implemented (clustering). (Clustering).

The main aim of data backup is to ensure data availability even in cases when data is lost not because of hardware malfunction but because of human error.

The backup is also part of disaster recovery (Disaster recovery) and the design of the backup therefore corresponds to the overall demands of DR.
