Swiss beauty retailer haar-shop.ch increases warehouse productivity by over 40% with Descartes Ecommerce warehouse management system
WATERLOO, Canada –
WATERLOO, Ontario, June 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq: DSGX) (TSX: DSG), the global leader in the union of logistics-intensive companies in commerce, announces that Swiss online beauty supplier haar-shop.ch AG Significantly improved order fulfillment productivity by over 40% increased its warehouse utilization rate by over a third by using e-commerce warehouse management (WMS) solution based on the Descartes cloud.
As haar-shop.ch’s online business grew, it quickly became apparent that manual fulfillment processes needed to be modernized. Its existing inventory management system did not offer advanced warehouse management features such as “chaotic warehousing,” which speeds up the put-away process and optimizes the use of warehouse space. Employee processing and storage capacity quickly reached their limits. “We had sorted the shelves by brand, so each employee had to remember the location of the product in the warehouse,” said Markus Stoller, IT manager at haar-shop.ch. “As a result, our warehouse operations were inefficient and we could not implement multiple order picking to improve employee productivity.”
With the Descartes solution, haar-shop.ch not only optimized the use of storage space, but also significantly increased the speed of shipping. “Our targets were exceeded. We have gained over 35% of storage space and increased productivity by over 40% for order fulfillment, ”explained Stoller. “By automating the execution processes, manual steps are reduced resulting in massive changes in daily routines, but which certainly paid off quickly. In fact, the benefits we were aiming for were achieved in just two weeks!
Part of Descartes’ suite of e-commerce solutions, the Descartes Ecommerce WMS solution helps direct-to-consumer brands, e-commerce retailers, and traditional retailers scale rapidly while delivering a remarkable customer experience. The solution helps ensure that customers can ship on time, ship the right items, don’t oversell existing inventory, and have full transparency into warehouse operations. Descartes Ecommerce WMS solution is pre-integrated with major e-commerce platforms such as Shopify, Magento or Shopware to accelerate implementation and time to value. Order information is automatically available for fulfillment via mobile picking and packing strategies for multiple orders and then feeding into parcel shipping systems.
“The Descartes solution can help haar-shop.ch’s warehouse logistics processes evolve alongside the growth in sales of their online store. We are very proud to be able to help haar-shop.ch to provide its customers with an exceptional shopping and delivery experience. said Dirk Haschke, vice president and general manager of e-commerce at Descartes. “For companies with e-commerce warehouse operations, excellence in order fulfillment is a key element for sustainable and successful business growth.”
