Another Bidfood Ingredients facility, Chipkins Bakery Ingredient’s Longmeadow factory went live during September on DATASCOPE WMS.
Chipkins Bakery Ingredients are the top manufacturers in the bakery industry and offer a comprehensive range of high quality products. Chipkins Bakery Ingredients supply Chipkins Bakery Supplies, Crown National and Bidfood Exports with around 80 tons per day of bakery ingredients.
The DATASCOPE WMS project commenced early August. Six weeks later, a successful stock take and go-live occurred. DATASCOPE together with the Bidfood IT
Department supported the factory for a further two weeks. The factory volumes increased significantly and within four weeks after go-live the targeted daily volumes were achieved.
Full lot traceability is just one of the many benefits CBI now enjoy. DATASCOPE once again enjoyed 100% commitment from the Bidfood IT Department and from the CBI management team.
“With reference to the many WMS implementation we have concluded with DATASCOPE in our group to date, the implementation of CBI has certainly proven that we have the implementation process well bedded down. The convergence of skill and resources from DATASCOPE , Internal IT and the CBI business tells the story of a successful implementation. The product scope, implementation and go-live phases were executed as planned and managed by project management without error from start to finish with all expectations met by both IT and the business unit themselves.” ~ Martin van Staden, Group IT Director
“It was a hair raising experience to implement the system, but with the professionalism and expert support from the DATASCOPE team the facility was quickly up to speed with its volumes and efficiencies. The versatility of the program and the “value add” it brought to the operations was immediately evident and will be of excellent use in taking the business forward. A hearty thank you to the DATASCOPE team”. - Rohan du Toit, General Manager - Chipkins Bakery Ingredients
BEKA (Pty) Ltd, Africa’s leading manufacturer of Luminaires and Glass Fibre Reinforced Polyester (GRP) Poles has selected and implemented the DATASCOPE WMS barcoding solution for SYSPRO ERP. The company produces high quality products and solutions for all forms of lighting. Over the past year BEKA have supplied much of the lighting to our world class stadiums.
BEKA selected DATASCOPE WMS in August last year. The project was started on the 01st of September 2010 and went live on the 10th of January 2011. Much focus was placed on rearranging the plant layout to accommodate a central receiving and storage warehouse to improve the inventory controls. The new layout together with DATASCOPE WMS has enabled BEKA to drastically improve both inventory identification and accuracy and has improved general discipline throughout the 3 manufacturing facilities.
Despite this implementation requiring a lot of Work In Progress (WIP) functionality, the WMS solution was over a 98% fit for the business.
“We found DATASCOPE to provide an optimal fit for our warehouse management requirements in close alignment with our SYSPRO ERP. The software has proven to be very flexible in accommodating various challenging aspects of our manufacturing process. Most importantly, the DATASCOPE team provided professional advice and the necessary people skills at all time to help our production staff through this important culture change.” – Johann Schleritzko Managing Director, BeKa (pty) Ltd
