And at number 1,
Husqvarna is a Sweden manufacturer of outdoor power products; chainsaws, lawn mowers, brush cutters, trimmers and more.
The Headquarters based in South Carolina had a clear goal of automating its entire warehouse to custom no code apps with product skus over 35,000. Within 8 months Husqvarna warehouse team was able to develop 41 custom applications for inventory management, forklift drivers, personnel management, goods reception and quality control tracking.
For instance, the company’s Track Lift app lets the team know who is using cherry pickers and forklifts at any point in time. As a result, up to 40 lift drivers and team leaders have access to up-to-date information about who is on what lifts when, the condition of each machine before and after use, and more. Instead of using a radio to communicate and check on availability, the team can simply refer to the Track Lift app to see what is being used and what is not.
Husqvarna’s 12-person inventory control cycle count team uses the Digi Count app to verify the number of parts in stock. In the past, counters would have a stack of papers with location information where they would not have an ideal path through the warehouse, count locations, and give the paper to someone at the end of the day for data entry.
