Avesta Pharmaceutics is the biggest supplier of pharmaceutical goods in Russia. The broad branch network and a big range of medical goods ensure a great demand and a wide range of customers.
Avesta Pharmaceutics was founded in 1997. Now the company operates in the new warehouse with total area of 15,000 sq.m.
Avesta Pharmaceuticals realized the need for a Warehouse Management System that would have a great deal of implementation in the Pharmaceutical sector, that would be flexible to comply to the maximum with the company's specifications and an implementer with deep market knowledge.
They selected Logistics Vision Suite (LVS) which includes a sophisticated WMS solution designed for large enterprises with demanding logistics activities.
The project was undertaken by Mantis' partner in Russia/CIS, ant Technologies throughout the stages of business analysis, implementation and commissioning.
The project had to be implemented in 4 months including matching all their technical requirements. It was realized primarily based on the relevant specifications and then the processes of receiving, storing, picking, checking, packing and shipping were adapted.
Regarding the outbound, the control system of sorting and packing was implemented. This process is performed by using the Touch Screen Packing Station, where multi-plane scanners and video cameras are used, for process recording.
Picking is performed by using Pick-to-Cart technologies that allow a picker to pick up to 18 orders simultaneously.
LVS' picking, packing and the Touch Screen Packing Station module were adapted according to customer's requirements, considering ergonomics, operating speed, labelling specifics and safety.
Finally, LVS was integrated with Avesta Pharmaceutics accounting software.
The employees were extensively trained in using and administering LVS.
Mr. Emil Airapetov, the Head of IT Department of Avesta Pharmaceutics, stated "Due to coordinated work of our team and ant Technologies project group we have launched new warehouse in target date. Logistics Vision Suite demonstrates good activity. We could increase speed of picking orders, reduce transaction costs and improve quality of work".
