The pursued objectives were to optimize work processes, increase productivity and reduce errors. The implementation of Datalogic solutions has led to results beyond expectations:

However, many of the factory processes were predominantly based on manual activities.

Before the implementation of the Datalogic solution, the SITS warehouse used equipment from three different manufacturers.
