Optimera is one of the Nordic area’s leading suppliers of building materials. The company is wholly owned by Saint-Gobain, which is one of Europe’s largest company groups, with activities in over 50 countries. The company has implemented Extend ERP from Consafe Logistics, in order to promote further development. This mobile application solution makes stock control more efficient, at the same time as routines and work related to goods reception and goods counting are simplified. In addition, the solution gives better control of stock and goods balances in warehouses and shops.
Extend ERP has been developed to meet the strictest requirements for stock routines, traceability and delivery quality. The mobile solution supplied by Consafe Logistics is integrated into the building material chain’s existing ERP system, Movex, and has enhanced Optimera’s stock and logistics support packages by a number of new facilities. Among other things, this means wireless data acquisition and mobile information transfer. Using hand-held terminals, Consafe Logistics’ system contributes to increased efficiency in several links of the chain, from the warehouse (goods reception, stock taking and picking) to the shop (customer service).
Consafe Logistics has also installed a local radio network (WLAN) at 25 of Optimera’s shops in Norway. Using Extend ERP, it is possible to register all stock and shop transactions in real time. When the data is only registered once, the number of possible sources of error is reduced at the same time, something that gives faster and simpler access to correct information.
