That allows to optimize the routes of storekeepers and correctly manage priorities when manipulating with goods which has led to a significant acceleration in the work in the warehouse. With the introduction of the warehouse software LOKIA, we are able to react to the needs of customers more quickly,“ evaluates Petr Vinduška, Project Manager at PEVI.
