Dethleffs staff can find the right camper van from a stock of over 4,000 in a matter of seconds – thanks to GPS-ready hand scanners
By using a digital parking space management system, employees at the camper van manufacturer lose less time when searching for parked vehicles prior to them being moved to production.
“In Deutsche Telekom, we have found a partner that supports us in digitalising search processes in our production.”
Alexander Leopold, Managing Director at Dethleffs GmbH & Co. KG
Dethleffs used to rely on technologically outdated hand scanners and paper lists for its parking space management. This process cost employees a lot of time before they could find the right vehicle from a stock of over 4,000. This often resulted in delays, as vehicles were often not ready and waiting for the next production step.
With an app-based solution from SYFIT GmbH, a joint venture with Deutsche Telekom, the GPS positions of the hand scanners are determined when an employee scans a bar code on the vehicle. The data is transmitted to the back end via a mobile network and is then always available on mobile end devices and in a browser.
Long searches in the large parking area are now a thing of the past, as are production delays. Drivers can locate the vehicles quickly and accurately. In addition, stock can be taken at the push of a button. This saves effort, reduces costs and enables just-in-time production.
