Energy Systems and Technologies is a major Russian electric appliances company specializing in manufacturing and distribution of its own brands in Russia and the CIS, as well as well-known brands, through retail networks and regional distributors. The company's warehouse has an area of 7,000 sq.m., a capacity of 12,000 pallet spaces, and is located in the Moscow region.
The company's dynamic growth motivated the leadership to think about investing in warehouse IT infrastructure, since managing the growing flow of orders and ever - expanding range of merchandise became increasingly difficult using paper based processes. The average number of orders at this warehouse is approximately 250, and the average number of merchandise units per order is approximately 100. In selecting a WMS system, the client assessed the flexibility of the system's functionality that enables quick adaptation of the system to the changing business processes of the warehouse, as well as the possibility of integration with the corporate management system. Additional factors considered in the decision process were the cost of the WMS solution, the experience of the provider in the marketplace, and the examples of projects completed. Logistics Vision Suite was recognized as the best solution.
In the course of the project, ant Technologies specialists implemented automation of the complete merchandise processing cycle, including labeling, repackaging, sorting, as well as working with wave picking methods and layers (light / heavy). The basic system module was installed at 25 workstations, and there are plans to implement integration with the 1C accounting system.
