One.World, a leading supplier of homewares, furniture, lighting and home decor products have just implemented a new warehouse management system utilising mobile scanners for all warehouse operations.
One.World, was the first home and gift company to run the Caliq Business Software system, taking it on in 2010, and both have grown together. Since that time, they have run their warehousing from two sites, latterly with third party logistics operations integrated with Caliq.
Working with racking specialists and the Caliq team, their Chessington Warehouse has been completely re-designed, optimising space over two floors, enabling their entire stock to be located in this new space. The Caliq Warehouse Management system allows product to be located in multiple locations, eradicating wasted space. The warehouse team are directed around the warehouse in the most effective route to pick orders, scanning each bin and product to ensure 100% accuracy. Containers arrive every week and stock is rapidly checked and located, reducing turnaround times. If QC issues are detected, products can be directed into a quarantine state pending resolution.
Stock checking can now be performed on a perpetual basis, again ensuring accuracy and saving time on annual stock checks.
The implementation was completed in time for Autumn Fair, where orders taken on the stand via iPads were immediately transmitted back to Caliq and routed through to the warehouse for immediate processing.
When asked at the show how the system was performing, David Silverstein from One.World said “Incredible. It is just amazing how much faster we are picking orders. The team have really taken to the system, it is so simple to use and we have now got some much more product into the space, breathing new life into our warehouse”.
