Specma Hydraulic – Barcode scanning resulted in higher levels of organization and quality

Specma Hydraulic is the market-leading supplier in Scandinavia of application-based hydraulic systems, and offers a wide range of hydraulic and pneumatic components as well as fluid conveyance systems.

“In our continuous search for improvement, we discovered that an improved warehouse process could contribute to increased productivity in the warehouse and higher service level compliance for clients.

Our solution was to install Novacura Flow barcode system with a barcode scanner. The quality of input data is very high, and the work process is significantly faster.”

Leif RepoGroup Logistics Manager, Specma AB
“Thanks to this solution, warehouse workers have increased their efficiency by about 30 percent, and the error rate has dropped radically.”

“The result is a well organized and high-quality warehouse process as all data is registered just once. The system takes care of lots of tasks which were previously done by hand. Commissioning was quickly and problem-free and the project stayed within the time frame- It´s simple economics – the earlier in a company’s existence you implement a more efficient process, the more money you make in the long term.

Specma uses Novacura Flow for barcode scanningNovacura has developed a barcode system for our warehouse. We have lots of different articles, and many of these look very similar. With barcode scanning you can be sure that the item number corresponds to the actual item. The system will let you know if you’re making a mistake. Thanks to this solution, warehouse workers have increased their efficiency by about 30 percent, and the error rate has dropped radically. As the system reports directly to the business system, we can do an inventory any time without having to call in staff over the weekend.

Most players in the different markets have processes and workflows that are unique to each client. Instead of buying a standard system without adjusting it to your own operations, there is a lot to gain from adapting the system to your own operations, which is what Novacura has done for us.”
