Otimis held the annual Supply Chain Intelligence & Otimis HighJump Customer Meeting in São Paulo. Executives from major Brazilian companies were present, such as Renner, Ambev, Tecadi, Etilux, Tirolez, Quatá Alimentos, Cefri, Forever21, YPÊ, Lacoste, among other invited, to discuss new technologies and the best practices worldwide able to bring greater profitability and better management of distribution centers.
In a challenging scenario in which we live, companies need to look for new ways to reduce operational costs and increase logistics efficiency. Otimis, as a specialist in this area, comes through this event to provide relevant content to assist in the knowledge and improvement of management, resulting in significant increases in ROI, labor shortages and flexibility in operations.
Otimis CEO, Hélcio Lenz, gave a talk on logistics trends and progress in the Brazilian market and brought in HighJump’s International Sales Vice President, David Houser, as a guest to share HighJump's global breakthroughs and the positive impact on intelligence level to manage the world's most complex storage and distribution operations.
Participants also learned about the success stories of two major logistics operations, Martins Atacadista, which is the leader of the Brazilian wholesaler-distributor segment, and Wine.com.br, the largest e-commerce of wines in Latin American, and 3rd biggest in the world. Both companies have chosen to use the WMS HighJump solution on their DCs to support their continued expansion plans. Martins's IT business analyst, Arley Silva, and the IT coordinator, Ricardo Souza, have explored the large volume of fractionated items and the distribution of tasks allied with performance indicators that provide a solid foundation for productivity. Ricardo Buteri, COO of Wine, showed us how the implementation of the technology brought flexibility to the warehouse operations and maximized the results.
To meet the demand for warehousing operations, the system developer, Roberto Weege, and the account manager, Rafael Loth, discussed increasing operational productivity through improved product disposition and minimization of honeycombing with the use of the Slotting Advantage, a tool that enables the team to rearrange items on the DC without stopping the operation.
