With Picavi we were able to fulfill all of our ideas and we are very proud to be one of the first companies in Belgium to use Picavi.Yves Asseau, CEOWeerts Distributionszentrum Lüttich
15 Picavi smart glasses in use
Beginning with 15 pairs of smart glasses, Weerts used Picavi for removing full pallets, organizing cardboard boxes on mixed pallets, and providing open pallets for case picking. The pickers have all the information and work steps displayed to them, right up to the moment when they consign the complete shipping unit for dispatch.
The pallets are then transported to retailers like Delhaize and Carrefour. The warehouse staff work in two shifts for order picking, using forklift trucks and the Picavi smart glasses system. They move along optimized routes between 60 rows of high-bay stores, containing around 25,000 pallets.
Complete turnkey solution with standard Telnet interface
The smart glasses and Picavi system quickly became an accepted part of daily routine in the warehouse, thanks to the complete turnkey solution and the standard Telnet interface. This ensures communication using the existing warehouse management system JDA Red Prairie, allowing operations to continue with no interruptions.
Expansion of the Picavi pick-by-vision solution
Weerts was quickly convinced by Picavi. As a result, further work processes are now being performed with smart glasses, including put-away and moving goods in and out of storage.
