WMS implementation for Lapertron

Magenta Favorita specialists trained Lapertron staff on the new system, ensuring they understood all the features and benefits of the WMS. The company was able to retrain 23 employees as the new system completely replaced them, eliminating the possibility of errors due to the human factor. It is important to note that the client company decided not to lay people off, but to retrain them to work in other positions, as the company was facing a staff shortage. Only 4 people could not adapt to the changes and had to leave.

After the implementation, Magenta Favorita continues to provide support and maintenance, ensuring the smooth operation of the system and prompt response to the client's requests.
Lapertron is a company specialising in the transport of goods with special storage conditions. In order to optimise the management of their warehouse processes and ensure more efficient logistics, they asked us to help them set up a WMS (Warehouse Management System).

In the first phase, Magenta Favorita's management team met with Lapertron's management team to identify their main challenges and needs in the area of warehouse management. It was found that the customer lacked a system to effectively manage inventory and control the storage conditions of the goods. Due to the nature of the goods and the approvals required, every other customer became a regular customer. With such a specific nature of work, it is much more profitable to retain existing customers than to attract new ones. To this end, the company called in an external, independent specialist, Magenta Favorita Unipessoal.

Based on this analysis, a customised WMS was developed for Lapertron. The system included modules for inventory management, monitoring storage conditions, tracking inbound and outbound goods, optimising routes in the warehouse and automating warehouse operations. A cellular warehouse system with full AI monitoring was implemented. This was the first case for Magenta Favorita where AI was used for forecasting and control.

Once developed, the system went through stages of testing, including simulating real warehouse scenarios. We tested scenarios such as power failures, equipment failures, AI and data storage database failures. After successful testing, the WMS was implemented in Lapertron's operations.
