Arnet Pharmaceuticals is a renowned contract manufacturer of natural products worldwide. To manage their inventory, they used paper-based inventory transaction records and an ERP system. Arnet faced several challenges due to this outdated system, which led to inefficiencies in inventory management.
RF Plus WMS for VISUAL
Arnet aimed to improve inventory accuracy, throughput and picking errors by implementing RF Plus, which would work in tandem with their current enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, VISUAL. Specifically, their goals included:
What Challenges were Arnet facing?
Lack of a WMS
Arnet did not have a WMS before RF Plus implementation, and maintained inventories using ERP inventory functionality and paper-based documented inventory transactions.
Gap between transactions and physical movements
There was a gap between inventory transactions and physical movements, which resulted in unknown inventory statuses.
Employees had to spend a significant amount of time looking for products/materials, and handwritten pick lists led to errors.
Extensive training was required due to tribal knowledge, and high employee turnover rates.
After implementing RF Plus, Arnet Pharmaceutical was able to achieve significant improvements in its operations, such as:
Reduced picking errors
Picking issues/errors were reduced, which helped improve throughput.
RF Plus was easy to implement using remote tools, and the project management experience was successful.
Great technical support
Arnet received world class technical support throughout the implementation process.
Arnet was able to continue its growth trajectory of 40% annually, without pain.
Met all target goals
Arnet met all target goals, right on budget and timeline.
