MI uses Mobile WMS for Dynamics AX to keep track of 450.000 item types
Mobile WMS is an excellent solution proving its worth every day
Maskinhandler Indkøbsringen (MI) was incorporated in 1963 as a cooperation between danish machinery traders. Today MI is an independent company selling a large selection of agricultural machinery and tools as well as garden and park machinery. In addition MI has a very large selection of spare parts for these machines. MI is delivering to both businesses and consumers though local machinery traders.
The large number of registered items (450.000) combined with the lack of bar codes on items in the past, resulted in many warehouse transaction errors.
MI chose the solution from Tasklet Factory after throughly reviewing several other solutions. “Our existing scanners were easily reconfigured and all problems solved quickly” says Alfred Korsgaard, IT Manager at MI.
“It was a tough job to get all the items registered with bar codes, but with the solution from Tasklet Factory, it was actually good fun. Now when the project is done everybody is happy with the result”.
“Transactions are handled much faster and the number of pick errors has dropped dramatically”.
Maskinhandler Indkøbsringen is a procurement cooperation between Danish machinery trade companies. MI is distributor of a large selection of machinery for agriculture and park management and spare parts for these. MI is headquartered in Vejle and employs 57 people.
