A LOT OF HECTIC AND MISTAKES
In the warehouse of Martens Kunststoffen they used to orderpick from a paper list. When something was out of stock, order pickers called out to their colleagues to replenish the shelf. This led to a lot of hectic, mispicking, mistakes and loss of time.
VOICE PICKING AND REAL TIME VISIBILITY
To solve this problem, Martens, Dalosy and HSO (Martens’ Microsoft Dynamics AX partner) first sat together to discuss which logistics processes could be automated.
To be able to work with real-time data, Dalosy has accommodated the warehouse with several access points. We and HSO have also provided a scanning and voice picking solution, so order pickers get instructions via headsets and data is processed real-time in Dynamics AX.
Dalosy has years of experience in voice picking and advised us on the implementation of it. Our sales team, customers and inventory managers are very satisfied because now we have an accurate stock which made our delivery rate manageable.

Moreover, we have installed a truck terminal and scanner on all the forklifts and reach trucks of Martens so users can also access real-time data in Dynamics AX.
SATISFIED TEAMS, CUSTOMER AND INVENTORY MANAGERS
Automating the logistics processes and real-time inventory visibility has led to some great results. The productivity has increased with 15%, the number of mispickings has decreased with 75% and Martens has now a reliable stock.
