How SNARTA can help your warehouse

SNARTA - combines the software and an automatic cart.
The software is connected with WMS and controls order picking.
When implemented, the complex helps to increase order picking speed and accuracy.

What is SNARTA?

cart

Smart cart

Helps to pick up to 16 orders at a time

Designed for specific needs of your warehouse based on the size and the shape of the package, the turns of the rows, the width of the passages, the height of the shelves. Made to meet weight requirements for maximum order capacity per cycle.

cart

Barcode scanner

Controls the accuracy of the order picking

Every warehouse item has its own bar code from WMS base. The Software controls barcode matching when scanned. If they differ, an error code will inform of that. Scanner mode is useful when stock consists of many similar items, guarantees error-free order picking.

cart

Tablet device

Shows the sequence of picking and quantities

Android tablet device supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Before starting, warehouse staff authenticates on one of the carts and gets an assignment. When in process, an item address (row, passage, shelf, cell) is indicated on the tablet device as well as a correct picking confirmation or an error notice.

cart

Special software

Connects the cart and WMS, manages order picking

The software gets assignments for order picking and distributes them among available carts, informs of the addresses of the items and controls if the picking is correct. If the items are missing in the cell, the warehouse staff indicates actual quantity. The Information is transferred to WMS to provide immediate control.

The increasing of warehouse efficiency

cart

Speed

Decreasing of order picking time

The cart helps to pick up to 16 orders at a time. For increasing batching speed and decreasing distance for warehouse staff SNARTA chooses the best route for order picking.

Accuracy

Decreasing of wrong order shipping risk

SNARTA controls warehouse staff actions and does not allow them to mix up goods. If an error occurs, SNARTA informs of it by means of a barcode scanning control, especially when there are plenty of similar items.

Economy

Saving on salary expenses

Less qualified staff can operate the cart. SNARTA precisely defines which and where goods should be picked and bears control functions. It will help optimize the staff.

Efficiency

SNARTA continuously performs a warehouse inventory

When the warehouse system informs that there are 4 items of one good in the cell but actually there are 2, SNARTA notifies WMS. Responsible staff can fix the problem shortly.

Price

Starting from Euro 3000 up to 7000 for a cart and software. The price depends on company’s business process settings, for example, on the way the goods are picked. We develop solutions suitable for your company needs. We take over additional implementing expenses and provide up to 6 month testing period, and fix problems for free.

support

We will not leave the project without technical support.

The price starts from Euro 100 per month.

Is it expensive? Let’s focus on the example:

Current situation

Warehouse picking staff: 10 persons. Monthly wages: Euro 1 000 per person.
Monthly salary expenses: 10 x 1 000 = 10 000 per month, 120 000 per year.

SNARTA can help to halve warehouse picking staff, only 5 persons needed.

Expenses after implementing

Warehouse picking staff: less in 5 persons x Euro 1 000 = Euro 5 000 per month, save Euro 60 000 per year.

SNARTA costs and implementing expenses

5 carts x Euro 3500 = Euro 17 500.

Thus, return of investments is less than 4 months.
