Warehouse Operations Becomes More Efficient with User-friendly WMS

Sanutal's warehouse and production area is larger than 20,000 m2, and the company carries more than 5,000 articles. To manage the warehouse operations as fast and efficiently as possible, Sanutal has implemented Tasklet Mobile WMS. The solution provides functionality making it possible for the employees to complete processes in the warehouse in a much shorter time than before.

Manual Processes Slowing Down Ability to Fulfill Orders

Sanutal's warehouse was paper-based and difficult to maintain with a growing business and a rising number of orders. Implementing Tasklet Mobile WMS gave them efficient ways to complete orders in the warehouse, as well as easier stock control, reducing errors in picking. 

Patrick Verdonck, Logistics Manager at Sanutal explains how one of the biggest challenges has turned into one of the biggest benefits: 

“Before implementing the Mobile WMS solution from Tasklet the warehouse at Sanutal was 100% paper based. We were not using barcodes for any of our articles, so the registrations of the more than 5000 articles with barcodes, was actually one of the biggest challenges, but it was well worth the struggle.”

Simple, straightforward, easy to train warehouse staff – that were some of the requirements Sanutal had for a new WMS solution. That box was already ticked after the first online demo with Tasklet factory and GMI Group. We wanted a solution that had already proven its worth in the market, and that is exactly what we got.

WMS Requirements: Simplicity, Intuitiveness and User-friendliness

To make their warehouse operations more efficient and faster, Sanutal naturally had certain requirements for the WMS solution they chose. These requirements included that the solution should be simple and straightforward. In addition, it needed to be easy for the warehouse staff to learn how to use the solution, so they could adjust their workflows accordingly. 

Past experience with complicated WMS solutions made these requirements essential for Patrick Verdonck, who states: 

“Simple, straightforward, easy to train warehouse staff – that were some of the requirements Sanutal had for a new WMS solution. That box was already ticked after the first online demo with Tasklet Factory and our ERP partner, GMI Group. We wanted a solution that had already proven its worth in the market, and that is exactly what we got.” 

Tasklet Mobile WMS has given Sanutal a user-friendly alternative to other WMS solutions, which makes it the perfect fit to comply with the requirements.

Making Warehouse Workflows Easier with “On-the-Spot” Functionality

Tasklet Mobile WMS enables Sanutal's warehouse workers to complete warehouse processes on the go. This includes the ability to look up items and item bins, so the warehouse workers always have an overview of item locations. In addition, Tasklet Mobile WMS provides functionality in order to move items as well as doing unplanned counts. 

Patrick Verdonck appreciates how the “on-the-spot” functionality adds value:  

“A great feature within the solution is the opportunity for the warehouse workers to look up items and/or bins, move items, do unplanned counts, and so on, all of this “on the spot”. Before we had to go to the nearest computer or ask the sales department for help.” 

Significantly Improved Warehouse Processes and Less Mistakes

Sanutal's warehouse operations have improved significantly following the implementation of Tasklet Mobile WMS. The company has seen an improvement in both the amount of time spent on each process, as well as a decrease in mistakes made by employees in the receiving area. 

According to Patrick Verdonck, the optimized warehouse processes have changed the entire feel in the warehouse: 

“In general, we feel it is not as busy in the warehouse anymore. It feels less hectic, However, this is not the case, as we are more than 10% up compared to last year, and this is with the same number of employees.”
