Advantages of the proLogistik Group software
All central applications for food retailing are already stored in the WMS pL-Store® Foodline as standard. The following are also among the highlights:
- the online inventory management
- Parallel picking options
- MHD processing with monitoring of remaining shelf life
- Space management including optimization procedures
- Customized labeling of goods
“The decision in favor of proLogistik was also supported by the fact that the intralogistics system house was able to supply the necessary hardware in parallel from a single source and we did not have to look for another supplier here.”Rob Verbunt, Project Manager K + K
