Twin-pillar strategy for online business implemented in a rush

Coop initiated a twin-pillar strategy. First, an assortment of products was defined that would keep an average Swiss household supplied with basic goods. These products would then be handled via a 6,000 square meter warehouse leased at short notice, equipped with a new IT and logistics infrastructure, and connected to the Coop network, all within the space of 14 days. WAMAS® was implemented in partnership with SSI SCHAEFER. At the same time, more than 100 pickers were trained to operate the logistics software, which has been used since commissioning to manage the rapid processing of online orders efficiently via 300 pick-up locations with multiple placement. The extremely user-friendly WAMAS® user interface also ensured that staff could learn the system quickly.
