New location and considerably more automation at pack it! (Austria)
Besides a new fully automated high bay warehouse with a capacity of 9,500 pallet spaces, the industry software solution BOXSOFT® by the Muenster-based system house CSG make IT, which has been implemented during the start-up period of pack it already, will be expanded considerably. "Up to now, all commercial processes from customer request to calculation, purchase, issue of working papers, manual data collection and even materials handling are executed with BOXSOFT®. It is our aim to handle almost twice as many orders in the future with the same manpower. This can only be done with a high level of automation", says Walter Freimüller, one of the Managing Directors of pack it.
"Data collection will be done directly at the machines via DC terminals. This will provide real-time data and thus a much better transparency. Materials handling will also be converted to real-time. Postings will be done via radio scanners. The BOXSOFT® interface to our automated high bay warehouse control system integrates even this area optimally. Since also the dispatch shall be planned and controlled via BOXSOFT® henceforth, we will be well prepared for the future", adds the organizational mastermind at pack it.
Besides the above mentioned complements, pack it will also manage tools and print images with BOXSOFT® and use these, in combination with the graphic control center, within BOXSOFT® for the planning of internal orders. "This process has been pretty simple so far, however, we are reaching our limits now in this area too. In order to maintain our high quality and delivery reliability standards, we can no longer do without these provisions. From the beginning of our corporate activities, BOXSOFT® has provided many tools to support our daily routines. All the more important it is now to receive the additional system modules that supplement our daily business. The modular concept of BOXSOFT® provides an optimum support. All this affirms the decision from the start-up period of our company. With CSG make IT we have found exactly the right partner - competent, flexible and reliable", concludes Walter Freimüller.
