Case Studies

Hampers With Bite

Challenge

This rapidly growing business was using a legacy, on-premise WMS that lacked flexibility and was unable to extend ERP integration or offer basic MRP features. Hampers With Bite required new solution accessible from anywhere prior to the peak Christmas production and distribution season. Furthermore, parallel operation of the existing legacy system needed to be maintained during the transition to manage overall business risk. Add to this, a new B2B batch order import system required to reduce manual data entry for large corporate orders.

Solution

Datapel Cloud WMS delivered a hosted, scalable solution that worked in parallel with the old system, enabling a smooth transition and ultimately having the legacy tool de-commissioned ahead of schedule. The Datapel integration with Smart Freight Management solution and real-time printing of consignment labels both increased productivity and order output capacity.

EHI Australia

Challenge

EHI Australia relied on a good paper-based picking system using incentives for high performing employees. However, the ever-present need to reduce overall error rates and increasingly strict SLAs with major customers dictated the need to improve accuracy and minimise penalty charges due to pick errors. With rapid business growth there was a need to modernise the Warehouse Management System and Scale operations. The system needed to be implemented as soon as possible and integrate with the existing ERP solution handling EDI order connections.

Solution

The Datapel Inventory Controller XE and RF mobility solution was deployed with wireless directed scan picking, increasing order accuracy and maximising warehouse efficiency. The training time for EHI warehouse staff reduced by more than half. Penalties were cut to less than ten percent of previous costs, freeing more money for further operational investments.

ELK the Label

Challenge

As a leading fashion and accessories brand supplying domestic and overseas stores, ELK identified a growing online e-tailing opportunity. They required a WMS that could keep up with the fast – often next day – delivery of online orders direct from their Melbourne warehouse.

Solution
