Warehouse management system and voice technology conquer complexities and future-proof operations for Hunt Brothers Pizza (DBH Distributing)
HAMBURG, Germany and MINNEAPOLIS, June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — HighJump, part of Körber, the global supply chain technology leader from software to materials handling automation, announces its selection to Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s SDCE 100 Awards for 2020.
More products, suppliers, distribution channels and ever-rising consumer expectations make supply chains more complex each day. This is heightened by global labor challenges. Technology can help, but without a sound strategy, often adds complexity. Businesses need a partner with both the depth of solutions and expertise to overcome these complexities. HighJump’s work with the top convenience store pizza distributor Hunt Brothers Pizza (DBH Distributing) exemplifies this.
Hunt Brothers Pizza (DBH Distributing) implemented the HighJump warehouse management system (WMS) and HighJump Voice to adapt with its rapid growth. This enhanced inventory management and visibility of perishable goods by eliminating the use of spreadsheets. Additionally, combining voice technology with the WMS enabled the company to increase employee productivity and maintain inventory accuracy while enhancing employee safety. The hands-free, eyes-free nature of voice technology and its ability to withstand extreme temperatures decreased time spent in freezers. The result was an increase in accuracy levels to more than 99%, a decrease in picking times from up to 12 to up to just 4 hours, and future-proof operations.
“We understand our customers’ reputations rest on how well they can adapt to industry demands,” said Bill Ryan, chief executive officer for North America at HighJump and Kӧrber Supply Chain – Software.
