BEC (Systems Integration) Ltd., a leading UK-based supplier of data capture solutions for supply chain logistics and manufacturing, has recently won a warehouse data capture contract with Haribo, the world's largest manufacturer of fruit gums and liquorice products.
Having previously used a paper-based system to record goods in, internal stock movements, stock counting and picking, Haribo was struggling with inventory accuracy and visibility, which in turn was affecting purchasing and manufacturing planning.
After looking at a number of solutions, Haribo chose BEC as the company to work with in order to automate its warehouse facility, whilst seamlessly integrating the new solution into its M3 ERP system. Haribo chose BEC due to its proven warehousing solution and flexible approach to design, as well as the ability to provide UK-based support and consultancy. Haribo was also able to view live demonstrations of some of BEC's reference sites.
Haribo chose the Honeywell CK3X mobile computers in conjunction with BEC's own eSmart Warehouse software to capture and record data for these mission-critical applications, in order to help reduce inventory inaccuracies, improve upon efficiency, maximise throughput and streamline overall business processes.
Philip Jarrett, director of sales & marketing at BEC, commented: "We are really excited to have been awarded this contract with such a well-known and renowned company as Haribo. The project is going really well so far, and we are looking forward to further extending the project in the future to include additional scanning transactions within the factory."
