Sodick, an EDM machine distributor, will be renovating its warehouse in Schaumburg (Illinois) with the collaboration of Interlake Mecalux. In the coming months, it will implement three software solutions to increase the productivity of the entire supply chain: Easy WMS, Supply Chain Analytics and Labor Management System.
The company is immersed in an unprecedented expansion process in the United States and, as a result, is seeking to multiply the efficiency and profitability of its warehouse. Easy WMS is a tool that will optimize and manage all its operations, from reception, storage and picking, to dispatch.
In addition, thanks to Supply Chain Analytics, the firm will track different indicators from its warehouse (for example, the status of entries, orders pending preparation and exits). With this information, Sodick can easily make decisions that will help improve its processes.
In line with its objective of enhancing and perfecting operations, the company will be installing Labor Management System to monitor the activities of its operators. The aim will be to record, measure and plan its activities to boost its throughput.
