Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced Infor SCE has been successfully deployed at Esky.ru, one of the largest online mother & baby shops in Russia.
Esky.ru was founded in 2009. Today, the online shop offers 100,000 stock keeping units (SKUs) and processes 1500 to 2000 orders every day. Subsequent to an increase in the number of orders, the company needed to expand its storage space and optimize its logistics. It needed a turnkey warehouse management software (WMS) solution which could provide high performance without constraints on the product range and number of operations. At the same time, the WMS needed to seamlessly integrate with third-party hardware and software. The company decided on Infor SCE and chose Russian partner, Exceed Consulting, as the systems integrator. Basic requirements included strict observance of the deadline and maintaining the service quality and the number of orders during implementation.
The project implementation took about six months during which time the company optimized its logistics systems in a new warehouse complex with an area about 6,500 m2, integrated it with the existing ERP system, and trained its staff, all that with its shops operating as usual. The Infor solution has allowed for automation of some manual jobs like the entire physical count process. Additionally, a cell-based storage system has been introduced, which has helped to improve inventory accuracy by five times, improve order accuracy by more than ten times, and to increase the warehouse labor performance by almost 50 percent.
“The warehouse is an essential part of our business and our main working site. Prior to this, we did not control all the stages of order processing; now Infor SCE has made the order fulfillment process fully transparent. We have been able to increase the number of orders processed while maintaining high picking accuracy and service quality. Now we have the tool to expand our business,” says Petr Dyuba, Chief Operating Officer at Esky.ru.
“Infor supply chain management products combine seamless integration and reliability of out-of-box solutions with the possibility to fine-tune it to the needs of specific customers and their businesses,” comments Dmitry Martynov, Official Infor Representative in Russia and CIS.
Esky.ru is planning to make extensive use of the Infor SCE system. As users become more familiar with the solution they expect to evolve business processes in order to take full advantage of the best practices within Infor SCE.
