Need for better governance
Kamps Transport BV implemented the online warehouse management system CORAX at the end of September 2016 . The warehousing activities of Kamps had increased sharply which provoked the need for better management in the warehouse. Kamps Transport started to investigate the market of WMS’s and finally chose for CORAX with the goal to service its customers better with its wide range of warehouse operations.
Speed and real-time
The two major advantages of CORAX in comparison with the former way of working are firstly the speed of processing in this system and secondly the availability of real-time stock information. The processes, both in the office and on the floor, won time because the staff is now working with scanners; they do not work with pen and paper anymore. Because the CORAX software is intuitive, the employees were quickly accustomed to working with it. The management noticed that the staff experiences the WMS as a very pleasant system; the employees like thinking about the optimal use of it. The WMS acceptance readiness is very high.
