Aktin increases performance of logistics processes by deploying managed warehouse LOKIA WMS6. February 2019
An online retailer of sports and healthy nutrition Aktin manages logistics using a warehouse software LOKIA WMS by CCV Information systems which has significantly helped to increase the productivity of logistics. That has enabled to improve customer services and among other things, handle the Christmas rush of customer requirements flexibly and reliably. The main benefits include total overview of stock availability and greater efficiency of warehouse workers. On top of that, the system automatically sends requirements and parcel information to carriers.
The company Selltime operates under the Aktin brand not only a fitness magazine and an e-shop but also four stores in Prague and Brno. The growth of the company in the last year necessitated an investment into more powerful, faster and more precise logistics. Another requirement on the introduction of a WMS (Warehouse Management System) software was to increase the productivity of warehouse work.
„We already had a system of bin addresses in the warehouse and the pickers used radiofrequency readers but the picking took place in a complicated manner according to papers which delayed the work of warehouse workers. The management of priorities stalled and was dependent on the manager. Today, the warehouse processes are managed using a WMS and all the requirements from orders are transmitted directly to terminals of warehouse workers,“ says Miroslav Králík, Chief Sales and Logistics Manager at Aktin.
