Promic, supplier of display products and presentation materials, presents itself as ‘not just any order picker’. For them, StackAssist was the ideal software tool. In an industry where shipping costs are relatively high, effective and reliable shipping is a prominent USP, which can make the difference between acquiring an order or not at all, all thanks to StackAssist.

Reason
“For Promic from Weert, Limburg, the choice to work with StackAssist was twofold. StackAssist proves itself to be an efficient tool to keep transport costs low and the software tool ensures an increase in predictability and reliability. Promotional materials such as displays and roll banners are no expensive products. In order to remain competitive, it is of vital importance to keep the transport costs under control.”

Approach
“We connected StackAssist to Microsoft Dynamics Navision, an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) program with which e-commerce processing can be done automatically. StackAssist allows Promic to fairly accurately predict the ultimate transport fees. This allows their sales department to share these directly with the customer, which means that any unexpected additional costs belong to the past. The system immediately calculates pallet numbers and space. Previously, this was done manually and sometimes an extra pallet had to be used, thus adding extra costs. ”

Results
“StackAssist has considerably increased the reliability, while transporting costs have actually decreased. Promic experiences an added value in the speed and predictability that StackAssist offers. In an industry where margins are small, it is a handy tool to stay one step ahead of the competition. ”
