Continuing commercial activities mainly through digital channels during the pandemic made the procurement processes of companies difficult. According to the research conducted by Gartner on the future of supply chain (The Future of Supply Chain), 98% of supply chain leaders think that the rate of working from home will increase in the next 5 years, which will force companies to digitize their supply processes. 79% predict that web and platform-based new business models will lead companies' supply processes after the pandemic, and 69% predict that companies that do not digitize their supply chain will lose customers in the next 5 years. Evaluating the results of the research, our Product Manager Tarık Dizer said, “The pandemic has made the digitalization of the supply chain inevitable for companies. As much as products and services offered by companies, procurement processes have become a part of their identities as well. This shows that the importance of new generation technologies in supply processes will increase.”
A high risk of error in warehouse and production management exists
Drawing attention to the fact that the digital management of every stage of supply processes makes the activities of companies sustainable, Dizer stated that manual management of the shipment operations, which includes hundreds of products, increases the margin of error and causes serious financial losses to companies. Dizer said, “Warehouse and production operations are one of the processes with the highest risk of error. With the StokBar solution included in our Panorama (P8) platform, which we developed for sales, service and logistics business processes; with its 8th version issued recently; we ensure that all processes of companies, from raw material supply to field sales operations, are managed digitally. By providing companies with a web-based and flexible warehouse and production management solution, we completely eliminate possible problems.”
An integrated solution for warehouse and production processes
Emphasizing that many national and international companies prefer new generation technologies in order to ensure business continuity in production and warehouse management, Tarık Dizer cited data they obtained from the field regarding achievements of StokBar, with which they offer an integrated solution in warehouse and production management. Dizer said, “In our field research, with StokBar we achieved a 98% decrease in defective product shipments, a 97% decrease in defective product acceptance and a 68% reduction in the time needed to locate products in warehouse processes. On the other hand, we determined that there was a 71% increase in traceability of the finished product, a 42% increase in product and raw material storage conditions, and a 22% increase in daily shipping capacity. In production processes, we reduced waiting times for raw materials by 60%. On a supplier basis, we achieved an increase of 76% in material and lot traceability, 70% in raw material traceability, 68% in instant production and consumption monitoring, and 57% in tracking aging, incubation and quarantine periods. These data constitute an important resource regarding the efficiency that StokBar offers to companies.
Can be customized as needed
Stating that with StokBar, companies can customize the system by activating different functions according to the personnel who take on different tasks in operations and the departments used, Dizer said, “with this feature, StokBar makes it possible for companies to manage their warehouse and production processes in the fastest and most efficient way. With IoT sensors, companies can instantly control forklifts they use in warehouse processes, by following the data in production or the required feature of any object they want," he added.
