BEC (Systems Integration) Ltd, a leading UK-based supplier of data capture solutions for supply chain logistics and manufacturing, is pleased to announce that it has won a highly sought after warehouse data capture contract with Raleigh, the nation’s leading bike and cycle accessory manufacturer.
As the only bicycle brand appearing in the UK’s Superbrands list and with a rich history in bicycle production, Raleigh distributes in excess of several million pounds’ worth of bikes and accessories from its warehousing facility in Nottingham.
Having previously used a paper-based system to record goods in, put-away, stock movement and stock count, BEC has been working with Raleigh in order to automate the warehouse in its entirety.
The system now uses Honeywell CK3 mobile computers and cordless 3820 imagers in conjunction with BEC’s own eSmart® Warehouse software.
The new solution enables Raleigh to capture and record data for these mission-critical applications, helping to reduce inventory inaccuracies, improve upon efficiency, maximise throughput and streamline overall business processes.
Tony Hampson, Managing Director at BEC, comments, “We are really excited to have been awarded this contract with such a well-known and respected company as Raleigh. The project is going really well so far, and we are looking forward to extending the project later in the year to further enhance the overall operability and functionality of Raleigh’s warehousing and manufacturing facility.”
