The sourcing and service company Solar offers a wide range of services that optimize customer activities. Among other services, Solar offers its customers to let go of the administration and instead let Solar take over inventory management and order management. A task that has ensured that the necessary goods are always in stock with the help of an online scanner solution for electronic registration of goods and automatic re-ordering.
One of Solar's customers in Sweden is SCA Ortviken's Paper Mill in Sundsvall, where some of Solar's electrical appliances are a fixed range at the warehouse. Solar has taken over the entire inventory management and now owns the local warehouse at SCA Ortviken, which consists of more than 400 different electrical goods. Therefore, Solar now handles the heavy and time-consuming tasks such as order handling, ordering, replenishment and inventory with regular delivery days during the week. In this way, the order system at SCA Ortviken has become much more systematic and dynamic.
- The shift to the dynamic stock has worked well right from the beginning. All warehouse management of the electrical items from Solar is completely automatic today. We avoid the entire administration and instead Solar handles the task for us. We only register when we take a product from the warehouse using a mobile PDA where we scan the item. After that, the system will automatically know if more goods need be ordered. In principle, we do not need to think more about the process - Solar ensures that we have the goods that we need, says Martin Näslund, Custodian at SCA Underhåll in Sundsvall.
