East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/06/2014 -- Radek Poskocil, Head of Production Quality & Engineering at ASSA ABLOY noted that delivery accuracy left a lot to be desired in the past. Resolving each claim also leads to significant cost. The additional cost of handling, returns, administration, and additional visits by field engineers soon became extremely costly. Poskocil illustrated this with a file from his records, “This is a sample of claims received in 2011. Our analysis shows that 80% of the total numbers were directly related to missing or incorrect items shipped. We calculated that with all the ‘hidden’ costs included, a claim would cost us as much as €450. Put simply, it was costing far too much to deliver the guaranteed quality we were aiming for. Something had to change.”
In an effort to tackle these issues, ASSA ABLOY turned to Pcdata and implemented the PickStar pick-to-light system to reduce errors and drive down costs. The installation success resulted in a payback in less than nine months.
