Warehouse Management For A South African Retail Store

Background
This retail enterprise has several large warehouses across South Africa. With the continuous expansion of its retail business, the enterprise requires a higher standard on its warehouse management system.
 
Challenges
  • Large inbound/outbound flow in the warehouse makes manual operations not only time-consuming but also error-prone.
  • Paper records are not easy to keep, and most importantly inconvenient to inquire needed information.
  • Inaccurate inventory data delays supply chain and retail business running. Retailers cannot make quick marketing decision to optimize sales.
 
Solution
Integrated with a barcode scanner, Chainway C5000 can automatically identify cargos’ information by scanning their unique 1D barcodes. The following steps of putting away, picking, packing and shipping become quicker and more precise.
 
Effects
  • Automatic data collection saves both time and efforts.
  • The first-rate scanning head delivers strong recognition ability, fast scanning speed and high precision.
  • Information automatically transmitted to the database over wireless networks eliminates handwritten transcripts. Electronic records can be kept forever and information inquiry becomes much easier.
  • Real-time inquiry about inventory information eliminates incidents like shrink or stock out.
  • It maximizes utilization of warehouses, lowers warehousing costs, and speeds up the turnover rate.
