Fully automated Archive and Logistics Center for Bank
First Line Software automated the Archive and Logistics Center (ALC), which occupied 53,000 square meters. It is the largest warehousing automation project in Eastern Europe. The challenging fact is that the ALC employees have no physical access to the storage areas and the entire process of archive operations is fully automated.
Our client is one of the largest banks in Europe.
First Line Software was selected to automate its Archive and Logistics Center (ALC), which occupied 53,000 square meters. It is the largest warehousing automation project in Eastern Europe. The challenging fact is that the ALC employees have no physical access to the storage areas and the entire process of archive operations is fully automated.
The client wanted to create a consolidated Archive and Logistics Center to process and store the bank’s documentation packed in archive boxes. Special climate conditions were required in the storage zone - a reduced oxygen supply to protect the warehouse from fire, rodents, and insects. The project is designed to significantly reduce the Bank’s expenses for archive data storage and processing. First Line Software was a provider of viad@t WMS customization work in this project.
Viad@tWMS, the warehouse management system by German manufacturer viastore systems GmbH was selected by the client. Viad@tWMS’s software controls all of the warehouse automation equipment in the Archive and Logistics Center (ALC). Another aspect of the project included the optimization of all logistics processes and document storage security to improve overall performance.
First Line Software technology specialists were responsible for customizing viad@t WMS and meeting the client’s specific requirements for optimal archive box storage - based on expected access frequency. As a result, both the time for document delivery and power supply costs for stacking cranes were significantly reduced. In the future, the automated warehouse system will be able to automatically re-organize the warehouse for storage optimization based on the ABC characteristics of the boxes (ABC-analysis – classification of resources in order of their importance).
- There was a dramatic reduction in the amount of time it took to receive documents from the bank ACL - from 3 weeks to a couple of hours
- The amount of required storage space decreased to less than 25% of the original space
- Headcount for the ACL was reduced by over 50%
- Data storage costs were lowered by 70%.
