ComputerSalg: Impressive growth, new premises and more technology
To keep up with the growth and the rapidly increasing inventory, the company moved to a new domicile in 2020
The growth comet ComputerSalg, which started as a physical store in 1996, where you could buy computers, hardware and software, has today grown to be one of Denmark's largest webshops. The corona crisis has accelerated the business further at ComputerSalg with increased pressure on online shopping.
The company continues to break records with high growth rates that have required more space to handle future growth and to accommodate the large product range, which today counts more than 1.5 million item numbers.
Ties the shopping experience together
In 2020, ComputerSalg got a new domicile in Ringsted with a 10,000 m2 warehouse, 1000 m2 office facilities for the staff and sufficient surroundings for the operation of the new ComputerSalg MEGA Store.
In ComputerSalg MEGA Store, you can find a wide selection of more than 1,000 product categories at the same low prices as on the webshop. To ensure a smooth handling of item information and prices, ComputerSalg also uses electronic shelf labels in the new store, which automatically handles the ongoing updates.
Delfi Technologies has provided the solution, which helps to tie the entire shopping experience together for customers.
Sets new standards in the warehouse
The new facilities have also led to a major upgrade of the warehouse with a special focus on automation of manual processes. ComputerSalg has invested in a new large packaging robot, which not only ensures an uncomplicated and error-free packaging of goods but also sets completely new standards for the speed and efficiency of the warehouse. The packing robot can pack up to 1000 orders per hour.
In the store, the electronic price tags are also used as a logistics tool to optimize the picking processes of the associates. Directly on the shelf labels, it is stated how many items are displayed at the shelf in the store and how many items are in stock in total. The signs also show location information, which helps associates to pick items from store shelves much faster.
ComputerSalg also uses other barcode solutions from Delfi Technologies to optimize work processes. The warehouse uses Delfi PM85 mobile PDAs with software applications for a wide range of tasks. The store also uses DelfiScan M71 barcode scanners, which ensure fast and efficient customer service.
