KATHREIN Solutions and allvisual underline their strategic Partnership
The challenges of digitising logistics processes are enormous. The individuality of each enterprise in this sector requires precise planning, flexibility and swiftness of action as, for one thing, optimisation processes may not affect the competitiveness. The transparency of this process optimisation is a part of our service, to which we attach great importance. Ultimately, we are committed to satisfying customers with our excellent performance.
From now on, KATHREIN Solution and allvisual will jointly master upcoming challenges. In both the generation of data and its processing, our partnership provides exactly the performance level that ensures convincing results: IT processes on a new level.
As a leading RFID technology provider, KATHREIN Solutions delivers fully automatic data generation using innovative technologies and solutions. Together with the process experts from allvisual, automated plausibility checks and integration of recorded data can be carried out. This enables the two companies to analyse and digitise processes holistically from the perspective of state-of-the-art technologies.
“The collection of raw data in the logistics process is a task that can become highly complex depending on the requirements. Varying opportunities and approaches in digitalisation do not necessarily lead to actual optimisation”, Thomas Heijnen of KATHREIN Solutions knows from his many years of experience in the field of AutoID.
One example is the use of barcodes for automatic identification. In comparison to our RFID technology, manual intervention is required for scanning, making barcodes more costly. RFID enables the automatic acquisition of data as part of a value-adding activity, making manual intervention obsolete. Therefore, our AutoID stands for an increase in data frequency combined with a rise in data quality. Data is more accurate, more reliable and is available much faster. Furthermore, the cost driver "personnel expenses" for these integrated processes is significantly reduced, which, moreover, also applies to throughput times. In addition to cost savings, there are further advantages here, for example, the reduction of WIP inventory.
The knowledge of allvisual comes into play precisely with the integration of fully automated RFID technology. Sebastian Holzschuh, CTO of allvisual gmbh, anticipates a unique added value for customers: “We pool our many years of practical experience in the RFID and logistics environment with the latest theoretical approaches, and are, therefore, able to discuss with the specialist departments and IT at eye level. This enables us to combine the most central component of a future-proof concept, the customers experience from day-to-day business, with our expertise from many years of technology/project consulting and its implementation”.
“From practical experience, for practical use.”
Both companies draw on many decades of practical experience when designing concepts, implementing projects and providing follow-up support. This will also raise your logistics processes to a new level.
