Andromeda Group is a fast-growing group of companies in the Mediterranean Aquaculture industry, with activity across Europe and with worldwide export power as well. They cover all the live cycle of the fishes they produce. Starting from the broodstock care, eggs collection, fry production, fish grow out, harvesting, packaging, and selling. They also produce Value Added Products like fillet, gutted, and frozen products.
In 2013 Andromeda decided to invest in a new version of their ERP (Microsoft Dynamics NAV), expanding its use to the production and warehouse area, looking for increased efficiency in their production and warehouse processes. A Mobile WMS solution that covered both, production and warehouse, was required to achieve this goal.
Prior to the Mobile WMS implementation, Andromeda experienced big issues with tracking all the products produced and sold. Now they have complete traceability at box level. Another big challenge before implementing a WMS solution was to get an accurate figure for material consumptions and, therefore, production costs. After the Mobile WMS implementation, Andromedas accuracy in cost management has increased.
The fact that Tasklet solution is included and developed inside NAV helped us to maintain the systems homogenized.
When asked, why Andromeda chose Mobile WMS as their preferred WMS, Jose Vincente Ruiz, IT Manger at Andromeda explains: "Our external consultant from Greece knew about the Tasklet solution. We had a web meeting and a demo of Mobile WMS from Tasklet Factory and decided, after evaluating some other tools, to implement it. We are a complex company in a complex industry. Flexibility to adapt the toll to our needs was a key factor. The fact that the Tasklet solution is included and developed inside NAV helped us to maintain the systems homogenized".
Andromeda needed a flexible solution, capable of managing production and warehouse processes. Some of the benefits throughout the organization after implementation has been better control and higher efficiency in production and the warehouse. Quality is experiencing higher and better traceability, accounting is getting more accurate information faster, and the sales and purchasing departments are now getting live information about production and warehouse processes.
Jose Vincente Ruiz explains: "We have achieved measurable results after implementing Mobile WMS. The solution has resulted in fewer errors in production and in our shipping. Furthermore, we now have accurate and faster information for sales and purchases about available stock. And looking ahead, we expect to expand the solution to our farms in order to receive the goods into their warehouses".
