80% cost reduction in stocktaking operations
This regional logistics provider provides warehousing, distribution, and sea transport services, and more.
Stocktaking is a manual, labour intensive, costly operation, and can require a lengthy stock-taking procedure. This customer also holds stock for customers, with regular audits. A significant number of precious resources are dedicated to manual stocktaking across all regional warehouses. These repetitive, routine laborious manual tasks can be a drain on human resources. These additional costs can be improved.
By mounting video cameras on forklifts, this customer has replaced manual barcode scanning with an AI based solution which outputs data on shelf and slot contents, by scanning barcodes on shelves and pallets.
The Sentispec Access allows for 50-80% cost reduction in the stocktaking operations, whilst reducing labour spent searching for misplaced pallets.
How does the computer vision camera work?
The stocktaking challenge
To deliver accurate automated stocktaking at speed the Sentispec Inventory camera works using Sentispec Access AI drawing data through computer vision software. While traditional warehouse stocktaking is managed by hand using a bar code reader, innovative options exist to improve operations. There is a constant trade off between the need to have accurate stock audits done on a regular basis, which are costly, with the speed and efficiency of automation.
Sentispec unique AI computer vision
The way the Sentispec Inventory camera works is by collecting data as it scans the warehouse aisles and shelves. Traditional bar code scanning in manual stocktaking can deliver 100 units per hour on average. Accuracy and speed are both objectives of stocktaking. Imagine being able to scan 3000 units per hour accurately through automation? The Sentispec Inventory camera can do this and will identify inaccuracies, location anomalies, safety hazards and damaged labels too.
The Sentispec Inventory camera
The Sentispec Inventory solution works with a tailored AI computer vision camera. It is a forklift mounted apparatus that can collect data as the forklift drives down the aisles working 30 times faster than a manual stock audit. The result is fewer misplaced pallets, higher stock transparency and happier customers.
Automated Stocktaking and Stock Audits
With our cameras mounted on trucks and other mobile devices we can drive automated stocktaking at a faster pace and with greater consistency and accuracy. This can reduce manual labour costs by as much as 95% by increasing pallet scanning rates from 100 to 3000 per hour.
|Process Efficiency||100 pallets / man hour||3000 pallets / man hour|
|Time Expenditure||3-5 people, 1-2 days||1 person, 3-5 hours|
|Cost Savings||€40-75K per year|
