Bigotti implements Mantis WMS LVS to pioneer Fashion Logistics

Bigotti implements Mantis WMS LVS to pioneer Fashion Logistics

Mantis announces the Logistics Vision Suite deployment at the logistics premises of Bigotti in Romania, leading to the optimization and automation of warehouse operations.

March 2, 2023

Bigotti, one of Romania’s largest fashion retailers with 41 stores in Romania and Bulgaria, and a rapidly growing international e-Commerce sales channel, inaugurated a strategic partnership with Mantis for the implementation of the Mantis WMS LVS, for the optimization and automation of its central warehouse in Bucharest to offer ultimate customer service to its physical and online customers.

Bigotti, a brand of Graftex, operates in the very demanding sector of apparel, men’s fashion and footwear where the customer is the king: whether they visit one of Bigotti’s stores in various premium locations in Romanian biggest cities, or prefer to shop on-line, Bigotti’s customers are satisfied with no less than the right product, at the right time, at the right place. Customers expect an irresistible variety of SKUs in different colors and sizes, as well as packing options of high quality and smart design. Their interest needs to be constantly revived by new collections, whereas they wait for the best price offerings during sales, mid-season sales and promotional campaigns, and they pay attention to the returns policy.

Then, how did all this complexity and prolonged peak seasonality affect the company’s logistics? To successfully address the high demands of the market, Bigotti had to quickly optimize the order fulfillment process and monitor real-time stock availability with the support of an adaptable, scalable and easily upgradeable Warehouse Management System. As Bigotti’s previous WMS system reached its limits, the company released a WMS market survey and finally, opted for Mantis WMS LVS, a leading international / logistics software, that proved to be a perfect fit to the management team’s expectations. Mantis WMS LVS’ advanced and flexible functionality offers rapid and cost-effective ongoing support while its unlimited stock attributes deliver all the adaptability required to the compelling needs of the fashion industry.

LVS, the Mantis Warehouse Management System was effectively deployed by Mantis Romania team of experts in Bigotti’s central warehouse in a record time of 3.5 months, in parallel with the customer’s daily operations even on the “heavy duty” period of Black Friday.

Once Mantis WMS LVS was fully implemented, Bigotti started to experience a productivity increase, high order accuracy, high levels of quality control, and punctual, real-time stock availability. Vital processes such as packing and checking were also outstandingly improved. The company has already released an agreement with Mantis for a second phase in 2023, including the installation of an automated sorting line as well as the deployment of Mantis Parcel Management module both for carriers and integrators, to streamline the shipping process of e-orders.

“Implementing Mantis WMS LVS for our warehouse operations was the best choice to optimize our logistics performance at a snap. Μantis is a true partner, with a very knowledgeable team, daily supporting us to deliver outstanding customer service, with LVS’ advanced functionality and great flexibility. We have already agreed to expand our partnership with Mantis by adopting warehouse automations, to efficiently address e-Commerce challenge.”
George Olteanu, Sales Director, Bigotti

About Bigotti

Bigotti is one of Romania’s largest fashion retailers, exclusively dedicated to men, with 24 stores in over 14 cities around the country, in prime locations in the most prestigious malls, shopping galleries, and the Henry Coandă Airport, the biggest international airport in Romania. Bigotti, operating since 2000, dresses up more than 40,000 men annually offering more than 1,000 models with over 100,000 units sold.

By using the LVS proprietary technology smart and affordable warehouse automations and Automated Storage & Retrieval System integrated, hence, the new logistics center of DYN Diagnostics operates Kardex VLMs both for ambient and controlled temperature (refrigerated) products, combined with Pick-to-Cart technology.

Mantis WMS LVS orchestrates automations at Iaponiki

Mantis WMS LVS orchestrates automations at Iaponiki

Iaponiki, the leading automotive aftermarket distributor in Greece, achieves outstanding performance increase with warehouse operations optimization and automation’ orchestration by Mantis WMS LVS.

October 20, 2022

Iaponiki invested in Mantis the leading international WMS / logistics software and solutions vendor and the award-winning Warehouse Management System Logistics Vision Suite (LVS), to achieve a significant increase in warehouse productivity and order accuracy, efficiently addressing the growing needs of the fast-paced automotive aftermarket sector.

As the network of Iaponiki stores was rapidly expanding and sales were constantly increasing, the company’s distribution center in Markopoulo - Attika rapidly reached its limits: the workforce could not manage efficiently the surplus inventory in the existing warehouse of limited space capacity and was struggling to execute all orders in time. The management team promptly decided to go for a best-of-breed WMS / logistics software, with a proven track record in the automotive spare parts and accessories sector, which would effectively re-engineer and optimize the warehouse processes from A to Z, leading to tangible benefits in a firm time frame.

After a demanding RFP period, the company opted for Mantis as its strategic technology vendor and invested in the uniquely adaptable and flexible Mantis WMS LVS which orchestrated a set of Automated Materials Handling Systems - AMHS and smart and affordable automation.

Mantis WMS LVS optimized all inbound and outbound warehousing processes during a complex and very demanding daily workload that included diverse types of product categories in terms of volume and weight. The Mantis Warehouse Management software automated the inventory replenishment operations, thus better accommodating the specific requirements of each Iaponiki store.

The team of the Mantis subject matter experts deployed LVS-WCS-AMHS Server (Warehouse Control Server) in a fast and effortless way, to drive the Kardex shuttle (AS/RS) in the picking process. Having developed innovative proprietary technology for native integration with automated materials handling systems, LVS-WCS-AMHS Server optimizes the product flows in real time, offering superior speed and flexibility in order execution. Iaponiki’s top management trusted LVS-WCS-AMHS Server also for its scalability, a unique capability that will enable Iaponiki for its future endeavors of new, automated warehouse operations.

The company relied on the LVS-WCS Lights Server for automating the sorting of items per store and client, from plastic totes on a live storage racking system, with the use of light-directed indicators (Put Wall or Sort to Light). LVS-WCS Lights Server supports additional functionalities such as box replacement notifications per volume / weight / product category as well as light-directed indicators for the locations’ status (full or not) and their in-time emptying.

Shortly after the Mantis WMS LVS implementation, Iaponiki accomplished impressive results such as the great increase in order lines per day, elimination of picking errors, and a remarkable decrease in stock counting time.

"Mantis’ reputation, clientele, and WMS LVS’s strong capabilities presented by the team of experts were the main reasons to trust Mantis from the very beginning. We took the right decision as we now have optimized and automated warehouse operations and we enjoy a significant increase in logistics performance. We look forward to fostering our collaboration with Mantis by leveraging new opportunities."
Nikos Xenos, Logistics Manager, Iaponiki
