Infor, the industry cloud company, recently announced that Signia, part of the Hersil Group in Peru with more than 30 years of experience providing logistic services to leading organizations in various sectors, had selected Infor WMS warehouse management system.
The Sales and implementation were done by Cerca Technology, Infor´s strategic partner and sales channel partner in Latin America.
Signia’s deep expertise and know-how, especially in the pharmaceutical industry, enables it to offer good warehouse, manufacturing, and distribution practices, generating value in the quality of services as well as more efficiency in processes and customer satisfaction.
The constant growth of transactions, processes, and infrastructure created the need for Signia to seek robust and flexible technological support to continue with best practices and operational efficiency.
Why Infor? One of the factors in selecting Infor WMS was the experience Signia already had with Infor ERP, which made integration swifter and adopting Infor WMS was done through a beneficial package for Infor customers.
Go-live was special as it occurred during the COVID 19 pandemic. Air flights were restricted and part of the team was in lockdown, so Signia and Cerca Technology established a remote communication mechanism to support the go-live and to make necessary virtual adjustments.
Two main factors that enabled Signia to start Infor WMS operations with no disruptions were:
- Set the project with all operations and adapting to best practices in the way logistic processes were being performed.
- Have the support and executive direction of an expert team with full knowledge of practices and technology and with Cerca Technology as an implementation partner.
According to Signia, partial results up to now are:
- Online reception through barcodes and warehouse strategy that optimizes warehouse operations and production line.
- Available picking and reading devices to increase picking productivity and eliminate errors.
