About Ritter Products AG and Rigaflex AG

Ritter Products AG, based in Erlinsbach (Canton Solothurn), operates its own logistics platform with over 6,000 pallet spaces together with its sister company Rigaflex AG. Ritter Products offers a wide range of products from Home Living & Utility, Garden & Do it as well as the corresponding services. The assortment of the company Rigaflex AG consists of gastronomy non-food products.

In order to optimize and streamline logistics processes, both companies are now relying on Dataphone’s innovative and flexible warehouse management software LOGIS MOVE, which can cover processes transparently and comprehensively with the support of its multi-warehouse and multi-client capability.

The warehouse structure

The main warehouse of the two companies is located in Erlinsbach (approx. 6,000 m2 and 6,000 pallet spaces). The outdoor location in Schönenwerd has approx. 3,000 m2 and 3,000 pallet spaces.

Advantages of digitization

After analyzing the logistics processes, Dataphone started to tailor the warehouse management software LOGIS MOVE to the needs of Ritter Products AG. The preconfigured warehouse management system was presented to the employees at a workshop and fine adjustments were defined together. Interfaces were discussed and adjusted. Details explained and integrated.

The advantages for Ritter Products AG as well as Rigaflex AG when using the LVS LOGIS MOVE:

Electronic warehouse processes

  • Warehouse processes are mapped without documents.
  • Data is processed electronically from goods receipt to goods issue.
  • Sources of error are eliminated and warehouse data and movements are available in real time.

Online databases, worklist for maximum availability

  • LOGIS MOVE is connected to Ritter’s ERP system via interface. Through data exchange, goods receipts entered in LOGIS MOVE are directly matched with open purchase orders and inventory is updated online.
  • Purchasing, sales and administration have up-to-date inventory data at their disposal at all times.

Warehouse organization

  • Today, all picking stations at Ritter Products / Rigaflex are permanently assigned. With LOGIS MOVE, warehousing can be organized chaotically. This means that only the space actually required is occupied by the items in stock.
  • During storage, LOGIS MOVE also takes into account the physical requirements of the storage location, such as the storage compartment height.
  • If required, the warehouse can be divided into different zones and storage areas so that LOGIS MOVE optimally allocates the items according to the stored strategies.

Efficiency increase and cost optimization

In the LOGIS MOVE warehouse management software, all process steps are specified and measured. This sustainably increases efficiency and significantly reduces costs. With the information available, the following goals can be achieved:

  • More efficient operation reduces personnel costs.
  • Familiarization times for new employees are significantly shortened.
  • Complaints and returns due to incorrect deliveries are eliminated.
  • Previously occurring errors are now traceable and can thus be eliminated.
  • The existing storage areas can be used optimally.

Ritter Products AG / Rigaflex AG chose the warehouse management system LOGIS MOVE because the sustainable use for their logistics as well as the increase in user-friendliness for their employees, the increase in efficiency and the optimization of their warehouse processes without the need to adapt the standard software were convincing. Ritter Products was also impressed by the excellent references as well as the release capability and the realistic and achievable ROI.
