Digital transformation journey at VISY
Visy’s differentiating factor is that they provide smart logistics solutions, focusing on next-generation systems integration, automation, and data analytics. As an extension of this ambitious vision, Visy began automating its warehouse operations, starting with implementing an Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) implementation in the current warehouse at Epping in Victoria, Australia.
With COVID throwing multiple supply chain disruptions, warehouse automation was one of the critical areas VISY wanted to invest in and bring much-needed stability and cost savings to the operations.
Having already implemented a full suite of Ramco logistics in 2017, seamlessly integrating it with its financial application and other 3PL partners, and having implemented our warehousing solution, Visy saw Ramco as their preferred partner. Apart from that reason, Visy selected Ramco due to its capability of integrating seamlessly with different API’s and integration with AGV was going to be the driving factor for this project.
The aim was to implement and integrate Ramco's Warehouse Management solution for their ultra-modern, completely automated AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) warehouse.
