Extended system support provided more efficient inventory management
Digitalization / IT
After increased demand and a changed order structure, where more orders came from e-commerce with few lines per order, existing IT support was not enough to control the inventory and achieve an efficient pick and pack. The warehouse had recently been built, but the system support was not enough to take full advantage of it.
Implementation of a warehouse management system (WMS) enabled improved control of the warehouse which could thus reach a higher degree of capacity. The warehouse system was integrated with vertical storage lifts, which further increased the warehouse capacity. The work on the warehouse was streamlined through the WMS with, among other things, automatic replenishment proposals and batch picking.
ProFlow performed the feasibility study that formed the basis for identifying the need for increased system support. Thereafter, we led the project with procurement and implementation of WMS, including integrations to automation equipment and business systems.
