In the 2nd half of 2014 Pcdata will install a PickCart system at Alpheios.
Alpheios is one of the largest professional cleaning businesses in the Benelux, in terms of cleaning products, cleaning systems and cleaning strategies.
The Alpheios distribution center is located in Hoensbroek and a second center is currently being built. A larger second center is necessary as the total number of daily orders is growing both online and off line. Due to this growth Alpheios is in need of a faster and more efficient pick system. Alpheios would like to fill and ship and orders within 48 hours of receiving that order.
In addition to the implementation of a new Warehouse Management System and the introduction of a Barcode scanning system, Alpheios has also chosen Pcdata’s PickCart to improve order picking quality, efficiency and productivity.
PickCart is Pcdata’s innovative Multi-Order Picking Solution. PickCart enables you to pick multiple orders in one go around the warehouse. Due to PickCart, cleaning products can be picked and shipped faster and more efficient. This is a very effective method to pick multiple orders at once particularly for online orders and far fewer mistakes are being made then when using paper picklists.
Pcdata PickCart is easy to implement within existing management systems. In the new distribution center Alpheios will start with a new WMS system. This system will provide the Pcdata PickCart data server with all necessary order data. PickCart will use this order data to finalize the daily pick orders. PickCart is very flexible and can be mounted onto every type of cart. Pcdata will set up and install the first PickCart, but as the system is easy to install Alpheios will set up and install the remaining carts. Pickcart is Pcdata’s innovative multi-order picking solution and uses the latest route optimization software, calculating the lowest possible distance travelled by operators in the warehouse.
Alpheios is one of the largest professional cleaning businesses in the Benelux, in terms of cleaning products, cleaning systems and cleaning strategies. Since Alpheios is fine tuning customers’ cleaning processes, their people, products and machines, customers see their performance level increase.
