Bic Australia, a manufacturer and distributor of consumer goods in Australia, has chosen Logistics Systems International to automate its eCommerce, inventory control, distribution, freight management, pallet management and invoice production, using LSI's warehouse management technology - iSupply.
Phase one of the project will see iSupply, with a bi-directional interface with the Bic Australia host system - GEAC/i2, automating all the back end business with a single RF pick to SSCC scanning process providing considerable labour savings and eliminating data transfer errors.
Consignment creation, carrier selection and customer invoice generation are then totally automated.
Phase two will see the implementation of WMS functionality including scan receipt, directed put away and scan cycle count technology.
"We selected LSI as an IT partner through their proven ability as a systems integrator and distribution solutions provider, as well as a company that is culturally aligned to Bic Australia 's core values of ethics, professionalism, leadership and teamwork," Steven Hunter, Bic Australia’s purchasing and logistics manager, said.
