“With the implementation of Easy WMS from Mecalux, we’re looking to improve the organization of work in the warehouse and ramp up efficiency in many areas, namely in order processing. And we’re going to do this by reducing times and increasing accuracy when carrying out tasks,” says Piotr Sygnarowicz, Chair of the Board of Directors at Planta.

The Mecalux software, integrated with the Comarch ERP system, will identify in advance the products that arrive at the warehouse. It will then assign them a location according to their characteristics and demand. Easy WMS will take real-time inventory of up to 15,000 SKUs, indicating to the warehouse managers the exact location of each item at any given time.

“We believe Easy WMS will provide us with the capacity to better plan the work in the warehouse, replenish stock more quickly, and effectively cope with periodic increases in sales — a crucial factor given the seasonality of the gardening sector,” says Sygnarowicz.

Digital transformation will improve operations in the Wojnicz facility. “We expect the deployment of Easy WMS to shorten the time needed to train new employees on the various operations performed in the warehouse,” says Sygnarowicz.
