Mantrac Group as a leader in its industry and among Caterpillar Dealers, it always sought new technologies and innovations to be applied in their business in order to reach the optimum work processes. The company found that there was a great opportunity for improvement in their warehouse system as it lacked a lot of functionality. As the company grew and expanded its operation in multiple locations, that system started to have issues with performance. Accordingly, decision makers in Mantrac Group decided to take this initiative that will help them overcome their obstacles and reach their objectives. One of the challenges was tracking and tracing the spare parts, machines and components that were located globally across 80 branches in 10 countries, which made it difficult to gain a clear visibility over the needs and deficits of each warehouse. The amount of time spent on handling physical counts, product search and synchronization between warehouses was very inefficient. Workers used to perform their daily inventory operations manually which affected their productivity and efficiency of work. On the other hand, ECS team faced some challenges as the amount of data was extremely huge. Moreover, ensuring a seamless high performance integration between the Warehouse solution and their existing ERP system was challenging however it ended up successfully.
