IBCS POLAND SPÓŁKA Z OGRANICZONĄ ODPOWIEDZIALNOŚCIĄ realizuje projekt dofinansowany z Funduszy Europejskich pn. „ibcsDock/ibcsCloud: zautomatyzowany system rejestracji przepływu towarów w magazynie”.
Odra Pak is the only nationwide Purchasing Group of packaging wholesalers. It has been operating on the market for over 20 years. It brings together several dozen partner wholesalers. Operating throughout almost all of Poland, it increases the competitiveness of its partners on the market.
Odra Pak is a recognized distributor of disposable packaging, cleaning agents and devices, as well as household appliances, office and decorative articles. In addition, the company operates in the field of household and professional chemistry as well as consumer and industrial hygiene. It also has a line of products under its own brand Odra Pak – Perfecto.
The variety of the assortment was a big challenge. Customers, choosing the things they are interested in, have dozens of different products at their disposal. The assortment is divided into 10 different product groups. Additionally: each of them has from one to nine subcategories. This means that the readiness to handle many orders with different quantities of items and different sizes of the assortment is an absolute necessity.
In this case, from the perspective of logistics, it is important to provide services to both small and large entrepreneurs in most of the country. High capacity is required all year round as the demand for Odra Pak products is not seasonal.
The solutions proposed by a team of IBCS Poland experts helped to meet these expectations. This concerns both IBCS own WMS system, ibcsTiger and Android Honeywell CK65 terminals.
The implementation of the solutions described here at Odra Pak lasted a full year. It took place in a newly created warehouse, and IBCS Poland analysts and consultants actively participated in the design of warehouse processes. The implementation process was divided into three stages:
The project was implemented unconventionally and flexibly, as most analytical meetings were held remotely. It required a lot of commitment from both sides. The design team and key users thoroughly tested the system. This translated into a high level of adjustment of functionality to real processes, and also made the system practically ready for use already at the stage of production implementation.
ibcsTiger communicates with an external ERP system via an on-line interface, i.e. in real time. Warehouse management is carried out using mobile terminals and label printers. From the level of the office user, management is possible through www panel.
Use of ibcsTiger system and Android Honeywell CK65 terminals allowed Odra Pak to efficiently manage the warehouse in real time. It ensured the optimization of its work, the efficiency of collecting and issuing goods, as well as high quality and comfort of work.
I have to admit that we initially considered as many as 10 suppliers. However, in the end, we trusted IBCS Poland due to the company’s experience combined with specialization in the field of storage logistics. The implementation of the solutions proposed by IBCS Poland brought many benefits to our company. It directly influenced the optimization of the work of the entire warehouse. However, it indirectly contributed to maintaining our advantage over the competition – says Radosław Naskręt from Odra Pak
He emphasizes that designing the system was a real challenge. It required excellent communication between IBCS Poland and Odra Pak specialists – both in the analysis and system implementation phases.
– Everything went our way, and now we can enjoy the great results that this solution allows for – adds Mr. Radosław Naskręt from Odra Pak.
