E-KANBAN: always real-time, always online

Feb 27, 2015
ORKLI and ULMA have designed an optimum real-time production and logistics solution. ORKLI developed this E-KANBAN project with the main aim of being able to offer customers an optimum, accurate real-time logistics service with no waiting time.

The system implemented at Orkli is an easy-to-use web-based e-Kanban system designed to reduce delivery times, reduce stock and, in short, create customer loyalty. The project guarantees RFID system control of all material movements, enabling real-time availability of all the information, process optimisation and inventory monitoring. In the words of Orkli’s Sales Manager, Iker Estensoro, “Customer service has improved considerably. Consumed material can be replenished in the time it takes for the supplies to ship from Orkli to the customer’s premises, which shortens delivery times to the customer and reduces the stock they need to hold”.

Also, customers can effortlessly ensure that consumed material will be replenished as and when needed, and they can consult up to date information about the status of their material online whenever they wish.
