Flexibility — unplanned satisfaction from your material flow management digitization

When you begin on the path to digitizing and streamlining your material flow management, you will have some specific, tangible benefits in mind. These tangible benefits are part of your rationale to justify the effort and cost of your upgrade—for Panasonic customers, typically in less than a year.

Tangible benefits, for sure.

You’ll experience immediate cost savings from cutting out a lot of paper. You’ll have a significant labor savings—in the current tight labor market, every FTE saved is a happy circumstance indeed. You’ll realize greatly improved picking accuracy and faster replenishment times—which can keep your manufacturing line moving and avoid downtime. And you’ll receive in-depth, real-time information about your material flow processes that will let you plan for success and avoid issues before they become problems.

It comes from the increased flexibility you’ll have as a result of your digital transformation. Move your material flow management away from paper and into an electronic system that works in real time, and—SHAZAM!—you automatically become a more capable, more powerful manager.
