Fewer Errors and Time Saved in the Warehouse

Weleda started to investigate the WMS market in 2011. “We wanted a warehouse management solution where we could use scanners at our warehouse, so we could keep better track of receive, put-away and pick orders,” says Onno Rietveld, IT manager at Weleda. 

In addition to no longer having to work with paper in the warehouse at Weleda, Onno Rietveld explains some of the benefits they have gained after implementing Mobile WMS:

“The goal for us was to do things faster, make fewer mistakes, and save some time and we already have some assumptions about how much time we will save. I expect we will experience a fast ROI. The many hours we spent at ineffective work before implementing the Mobile WMS solution from Tasklet Factory didn’t give us any value for our business".

The WMS solution from Tasklet Factory was almost ready from the start - no customization was needed, as Mobile WMS is an out of the box solution, and we are very happy with it

Wanted: WMS With 100% Integration to ERP

Onno Rietveld goes on:

“Before implementing the Mobile WMS solution from Tasklet Factory we also considered other providers of WMS solutions. But only the Mobile WMS solution from Tasklet Factory was 100 % integrated into our ERP system, Then we could have our NAV partner HB Software to implement the solution. The WMS solution from Tasklet Factory was almost ready from the start - no customization was needed, as Mobile WMS is an out of the box solution, and we are very happy with it.

Lower Error Rate With Mobile WMS

For Weleda the Mobile WMS solution has resulted in fewer mistakes in their warehouse operation. They can do more work with the same number of employees. Onno Rietveld explains:

“At Weleda, we work with LOT numbers, and with this scanning solution we have reduced the number of errors.”
