The work methodology proposed in the statement of work was key for the first part of the project.
Cerca Technology, a strategic technology partner for companies seeking to optimize their supply chain, led the go-live of the implementation of Infor WMS in one of the Megalogística distribution centers located in Santiago, Chile.
Go-Live project: Porvenir
According to the strategic plan drawn up by Megacentro at the beginning of the project, Megalogística would be the first logistics operator of the group that would carry out the implementation of the Infor WMS. According to the plan, the go-live of the first of one hundred and fifty customers of the company took place in November 18, 2019, exceeding all expectations.
The most relevant challenges are related to the need for operational processes and information management, both for the company and for its customers. All this, without affecting the operational continuity of customers.
In a conversation regarding the go-live, Ricardo Cox, General Manager of Megalogística specified that among the most important aspects was the ease of use of the system, the speed with which operators learn to use it and the necessary rigor with which they must carry out each of the operational processes.
“After the first month of operation we are already in a position to ensure that we are capitalizing many of the expected benefits of the project, which in the short term will mean improvements and savings,” says Ricardo Cox.
On the other hand, Miguel Morales, Project Manager highlighted the ease with which users began to interact with the tool in an almost intuitive way, especially in relation to the execution of reports and reports that was another of the great needs of the company
