Alexandrion Group, the largest alcohol beverages manufacturer in Romania, has implemented the warehouse management software (WMS) from Senior Software. The system helped the company increase their batch delivery accuracy, while also ensuring full stock control and integrating perfectly with ERP system already in use.
Alexandrion Group is the largest alcohol beverages manufacturer in Romania, with a history of over 227 years in the local alcohol manufacturing industry alongside SABER Distilleries 1789. With a turnover of nearly 150 million RON in 2016, Alexandrion Group has a production area of 20 hectares and produces well-known brands such as the Brancoveanu brandy, Alexandrion 5* and 7*, Alexander and Kreskova vodkas or SABER liqueurs.
At the beginning of 2017, Alexandrion Group representatives decided to open a global operational office in Cyprus and expand the business to the United States and Brazil. To sustain this growth, managers had to search and implement a warehouse management software (WMS). Eventually, they decided on the WMS solution provided by Senior Software.
“We have always considered important to use software systems and technologies specifically designed to fit different areas of our business, and Senior Software’s WMS system was the perfect choice for managing our logistic activities in real time. The main selection criteria were compatibility with our industry and prior validation from other companies. We have found all of these benefits in the WMS system, and with the help of Senior Software’s consultants, we managed to successfully implement the software,”
said Cristian Stefanov, IT Manager @Alexandrion Grup..
The main benefit of using the WMS system in their day-to-day activities is the increase in batch delivery accuracy. The system also improves warehouse performance, product identification times for picking operations, ensures optimal shelf placement, etc.
At the same time, the company has full stock control, with the most important information being automatically processed and available in a single place. Moreover, with the help of barcode readers provided by Senior Software, all levels of product traceability are ensured and activities can be monitored at the user level.
As to accepting the WMS solution by their warehouse staff:
“The whole logistic team involved in this project has adopted the system within a few weeks. Even since the training sessions, employees acknowledged that the new system helps them in their everyday activity and even eliminates some of the repetitive tasks. With the WMS system from Senior Software, every team member knows exactly what they have to do right from their mobile terminals.”
according toMr. Stefanov.
The new warehouse optimization system was perfectly integrated with the ERP system already used in the company. Therefore, the two systems are sharing detailed information between each other in real time, and besides the usual data (products, quantities, documents, etc.), other data such as unique SSCC (serial shipment container code), article and batch codes and many others are being exchanged, allowing the team to have stock traceability.
Among companies that also use Senor Software’s WMS System are Delaco, Pambac, Sanovita, Croco, Dinamic 92, Stera Chemicals, Life Logistics, Herlitz and many others.
