For Auckland company Onelink, their warehouse management system could literally be described as a life-saving operation.
As a major supplier to public and private hospitals in New Zealand, Onelink (formerly Health Support Ltd) supplies their customers with the thousands of consumables required to run a modern hospital.
Each day, from their distribution centre in Auckland, they despatch a hugely diverse 22,000 product lines – everything from stationery and teabags, to high-end pharmaceuticals and surgical equipment.
Since 1997, Interlogic has provided Onelink with Multipick® software and a range of custom-designed equipment to meet the unique requirements of the healthcare industry.
Established in 1993, Onelink is unique in the New Zealand health sector.
Operating from a 8,000sq metre distribution centre in Auckland, Onelink provides its customers with a single-source supply for all consumables.
About 60% of Onelink's
business is derived from the major public hospitals in Auckland. The other 40% comes from other public hospitals around New Zealand, as well as a range of healthcare providers in the private sector.
Onelink, which is owned by the publicly-listed EBOS Group Ltd, has evolved its warehouse management systems to keep pace with its significant and steady growth.
The weekday shift now ends at 6:30pm instead of 11pm.
“Our picking speed has increased by at least 22% under the new version.”
“We now run at about 99.85% picking accuracy.”
“Any upgrading we do is rebuilding the jumbo in full flight...”
