Before they impact on customers
Through barcode technology, we can model delivery critical ‘manufacturing stage gates’ for the product to pass through by a certain time.
Our custom-built systems automatically trigger alerts of rare potential problems, thereby saving you time and money.
The same technology underpins customer order tracking, dispatch & delivery, with everything scanned on & off lorries, allowing orders to be delivered on-time-in-full.
This allows us to improve our operation. Elements of each order are checked before loading the lorry & then rescanned on & off the lorry.
This eliminates the chance of shipping incomplete orders. The truck won’t leave until everything is accounted for.
Creating a faster, simpler system
All products are scanned off.
System issues a customer delivery note & audit, providing clear audit trails.
Piloting functionality for products damaged in transit to be re-scanned for priority factory remakes to cut delays and improve service.
