Mantis, a leading international WMS / logistics software and technology solutions vendor, was recognized by Info Quest Technologies, a member of Quest Group, as the preferred WMS vendor for its new Logistics Center in Attika-Greece, a recently inaugurated investment of 25,000 sq.m. storage space and 21,000 pallet locations that adopt state-of-the-art warehouse automation.

Apart from order fulfillment, the new Logistics Center of Info Quest Technologies serves as a 3PL provider for the companies of Quest Group active in the ICT (Information and Communications Technology), retail and air conditioning sectors. Mantis WMS LVS optimized the entire inbound and outbound warehouse operations, streamlining the workflow processes and boosting logistics performance.

Especially for e-retail sales orders, Mantis WMS LVS integrated and orchestrated Autostore AS/RS (Automated Storage & Retrieval System), an innovative automation system that eliminates the need for lanes between the storage positions since robots retrieve and transport the containers from above.

Mantis designed LVS-WCS AMHS Server (LVS – Warehouse Control System, Automated Materials Handling Server) a high-performance module that orchestrates Materials Handling Equipment / MHE. In this case, it orchestrated Autostore and optimized the flow of goods in real time. Info Quest Technologies benefited from Mantis exclusivity in providing native integration with AMHS, without the need for middleware software, thus offering high performance, flexibility, and scalability.

The warehouse performance footprint of Info Quest Technologies is highly increased after the implementation of this project, by the Mantis Greece team of experts:

  • Picking productivity quadrupling,
  • Maximum storage density,
  • A drastic increase in order fulfillment speed,
  • High increase in order accuracy,
  • Elimination of errors and
  • Ultimate stock transparency.

The implementation of Mantis WMS LVS and the orchestration of Autostore at Info Quest Technologies received the top distinction of Platinum Award from the reviewing committee of Supply Chain Awards 2023 in Greece as the “Best Logistics Practice in Retail & Manufacturing”, as well as the Gold Award in the category “Automation and Industry 4.0 in the Supply Chain”.

“The collaboration and support from our partners, Mantis, was incredible. Their expertise, enthusiasm, and seamless teamwork have been instrumental in bringing this project to life. I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Mantis team for their exceptional contributions. We focused on an adaptable, flexible and scalable WMS, capable of supporting our business, now and in the future. Logistics Vision Suite large-scale implementation in our premises and the successful orchestration of Autostore AS/RS guarantee the quadrupling of IQT’s warehouse productivity.”
