EUROLOGIC Optimizes Warehouse Operation and Plans Business Expansion with Infor SCE System
Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced the deployment of a warehouse management system, Infor Supply Chain Execution, at EUROLOGIC, a logistics operator and 3PL provider owning several warehouses in the Moscow region for temporary storage, safe custody and logistics storage of their clients' goods.
System deployment was successfully carried out by LT Management, an Infor partner, and has enabled EUROLOGIC organize processes at three logistics centers it owns, with 14 to 15,000 pallet positions each, employing 450 people in total. This has significantly improved performance at all sites: streamlining and speeding up the processes of customer request processing, goods picking for delivery and counterfeit goods detection.
Currently, Infor Supply Chain Execution supports all the company's logistics processes, and thanks to effective management the warehouse space utilization coefficient reaches 0.8. Warehouse managers have access to consolidated data on the total goods movement chain: from receipt and allocation at the warehouse to shipping to the client. Currently, the system is operated by more than 200 people in total: stock managers, operators, inventory and quality assurance specialists.
The solution was integrated with open reporting systems and ERP. In the course of operation, several additional functions were implemented. An external control and packing module allows operators to check quickly whether the goods were picked correctly before packing for transportation. A modified cross-docking module keeps record of goods delivered to the warehouse and shipment without accounting recognition, which makes the shipment process faster.
The counterfeit monitoring function is an interesting option based on Infor SCE. Before sending goods to the client, the system assigns a secret code to each of the items. During store inspection it allows the clients to check it against the item listing and see whether the certain item is the one shipped from the warehouse or a counterfeit.
"Compared to competitors' solutions, Infor SCE has a friendlier user interface and enables us to use the existing practices. It provides operation stability and quick response, as well as flexible modifications. The solution could even be scaled up twice to support more than 4-5 storage sites - that gives us technological capability for business expansion," said Alexey Kharin, Chief Development Officer at EUROLOGIC.
EUROLOGIC keeps on improving its processes and implementing new opportunities together with Infor and LT Management. For example, there are plans to create a mobile workplace with an RF terminal to check correctness of picking, i.e. to perform a so-called output order control.
"Today, companies are forced into a continuous search for the ways to reduce costs through effective logistics management, increased warehouse performance and capacity, and reduced stocks. Infor SCE improves transparency of warehouse processes and increases resource utilization efficiency and shipment accuracy. Using this single information system, managers can track goods movement and be certain about accurate delivery," said Dmitry Martynov, official Infor representative in Russia and the CIS.
