Regensburg, 9 July 2019 – Digitalisation technologies hold the promise of immense improvements in a wide variety of processes within the logistics industry. Dallmeier electronic, the Regensburg-based manufacturer of video information technology, already has a long-standing cooperation relationship with T.CON, a consulting house and system integrator for SAP with headquarters in Plattling. Now, the Bavarian companies are unveiling their first two jointly developed logistics solutions, the “Digital Gate” and “Package Measurement”. These new solutions can be used by logistics businesses to effectively prevent backlogs and eliminate manual capture processes involved in the weighing and measuring of packaged items.
The solutions developed jointly by Dallmeier and T.CON enable the large volumes of data which have been captured by video systems to be transmitted directly to the ERP system. The partnership between the two companies has already resulted in two market-ready solutions for the Supply Chain, with which customers can optimise central processes and improve cycle times. Further solutions for Supply Chain, HR and Compliance are also on the cooperation agenda.
The “Digital Gate” solution reduces waiting times outside the plant premises
The “Digital Gate” solution automates manual vehicle registration and consignment note management processes with an innovative self-service portal based on SAP Fiori. The system recognises ASNs (advanced shipping notes) in advance and identifies vehicle classes, registration numbers, ID numbers and hazardous substances in accordance with compliance regulations, enabling automatic barrier and gate control. The freight data in SAP can be supplemented in SAP with the information collected optically using standard SAP objects. The data can then be integrated directly in SAP TM or LE-TRA (ECC 6.0). The main advantages of the “Digital Gate” are considerably shorter waiting times outside the company grounds and a reduction of backlogs. Depending on requirements, the system can be operated separately or integrated in an existing Yard Management solution.
The “Package Measurement” solution eliminates manual weighing and measuring
The “Package Measurement” solution enables fully automatic volume calculation and weighing of freight goods. For calculating volume, special 3D video systems are used to measure the goods instantaneously on an existing roadway. To determine weight, industrial trucks are fitted with wireless weighing forks and all order picking processes are documented automatically. This enables logistics businesses to eliminate all manual processes for capturing weight and volume, and to detect incorrect or inaccurate inputs. This ensures that the data integrated subsequently in SAP WM or SAP EWM is correct. Further advantages range from the optimal use of load capacities to plausibility checks against reference data and up to coordinated warehousing strategies. The solutions for weighing and measuring can be implemented either jointly or separately.

Dallmeier: Turn images into assets.
With pioneering video technology from Germany.
In 1984, Founder & CEO Dieter Dallmeier founded what is now Dallmeier electronic – not in the proverbial garage, but in a garden shed in Regensburg, Germany. Today, the company, which can justifiably call itself a hidden champion for video information technology "Made in Germany", has several hundred employees worldwide, more than 250 of them at the company headquarters in the centre of Regensburg alone.
Our customers: From commercial enterprises to World Cup stadiums
Dallmeier's camera, recording, software, and analysis solutions optimise security and processes for B2B end customers in a wide range of industries in over 60 countries. The focus is on users from the casino, smart city, airports, logistics, stadiums, and industrial sectors. But also, banks, critical infrastructure facilities as well as medium-sized companies from all sectors.
Low total cost of ownership "Made in Germany"
With pioneering innovations, Dallmeier has succeeded time and again in placing itself at the forefront of technology: From the world's first digital image storage system with motion analysis in 1992, the patented "multifocal sensor technology" Panomera® with its "Mountera®" mounting system, to the latest Domera® camera family, which allows up to 300 camera variants with only 18 components. These and many other innovations provide real, tangible customer benefits. And with a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and a high Return on Investment (ROI) they can easily compete with systems produced and supplied from low-wage countries.
Cybersecurity, data protection and ethical responsibility through maximum vertical integration
With 100% "Made in Germany", we also guarantee our customers the highest standards in data protection, cybersecurity, and ethical responsibility. With high quality and short supply chains, we also ensure – almost incidentally – sustainability and environmental protection. From our prestigious headquarters in the centre of Regensburg, Dallmeier not only carries out its own research and development but also the complete manufacturing process – from component to product to solution.
