The manufacturer’s productivity was challenged due to warehousing inefficiencies. Lack of visibility into inventory, asset and manpower as well as inefficient warehouse processes like picking and put-away were resulting in lesser throughput, thus impacting their overall operational efficiency. The client identified key areas where they wanted to make changes to transform their warehouse operations.
The manufacturer needed a partner with the expertise to manage end-to-end transformation of their warehouse. Wipro’s knowledge of the client’s business and decades of experience meeting similar needs of clients enabled a quick and seamless transformation. The Wipro team came up with an Integrated Smart Warehouse solution using IoT technology for Man, Machine and Materials tracking. Standard Operating Procedures were defined to reduce event/issue times. Some of the key features of the solution were:
The new warehousing solution secured many firsts for the client. With ready information at their fingertips, the client had real-time access to inventory, asset, and manpower, and could easily measure the efficiency and productivity of resources engaged in picking, packing and shipping processes. The integration with the existing systems ensured that there were no sudden changes.
Some of the key benefits realized were:
“Our team took complete responsibility of the client’s warehouse operations, integrating old with the new. And while we helped them re-imagine their warehouse processes, our client was able to focus on their end customer experiences driving customer successes and living up to their name in innovation, collaboration and engineering excellence.“
