Royal Design Uses Ongoing WMS

E-commerce Giant Royal Design's Encounter with Logistic Innovation

With custom solutions developed by our Senior Customer-responsible software engineer Tianfu Yun, the design and home decor e-commerce company Royal Design has streamlined their warehouse operations to achieve higher efficiency and trackability while keeping their customer promise in sharp focus.

When the e-commerce giant in design and home decor, Royal Design, underwent strong growth, it became clear that a logistical change in their warehouse management was necessary. This realization led them to Ongoing WMS, which not only met Royal Design's high demands but also offered innovative solutions that came to exceed their expectations.

From Kalmar to E-commerce Giant

Royal Design's journey began in 1999 in Kalmar, with a clear vision to offer design and home decoration products for the American market. Early on, the company recognized the enormous potential of e-commerce. They therefore chose to fully commit to this strategy and expand their target market to include the Nordic countries as well. Around 2021, Royal Design had established itself as a leading e-commerce player in the Nordics within its niche. However, success also brought challenges, especially when it came to their warehouse management. For a long time, they had only worked in the warehouse management system intended for their AutoStore™. There was now a need to evaluate and upgrade the WMS, especially for handling larger products such as sofas and tables. Here, Ongoing would be of great help.

When Royal Design first got in touch with Ongoing, they were simultaneously looking at several other systems. They had many complex requirements for their future WMS provider, such as being able to integrate smoothly with Autostore and its WMS while also being able to efficiently manage the regular warehouse operations. And, of course, being able to consolidate orders between Autostore and regular picking.

Greatest Strength: Personal Customer-Responsible Software Developer

From Ongoing's side, there was never any doubt that the system could handle Royal Design's various needs. However, larger WMS clients may want the warehouse system provider to take overall responsibility and, above all, have several consultants on-site for an extended period. This is, however, not part of Ongoing's business model. In Ongoing's model, each new customer is assigned a personal customer-responsible software developer with whom they can have direct contact. Behind the personal developer, there is a team consisting of about 4 developers in total, where they often discuss clients' specific needs to come up with the best solutions.

Jimmy Rothberg, Head of Logistics / Site Manager at Royal Design, talks about their experience with Ongoing's model: "At first, we were a bit worried that we would only have one dedicated person at Ongoing to have our dialogue with during the implementation. But quite quickly, we realized that it instead became a strength to have direct contact with a software developer where we always got quick and competent responses to our many questions. I am very satisfied with the personal service regarding the development and the daily cooperation with Ongoing!"

Engineering Invention Creates Solutions

Royal Design's customer-responsible software developer Tianfu Yun shares his view on how the implementation has worked in this case with a company as large and complex as Royal Design: "Sure, compared to our smaller customers, Royal Design had a relatively long implementation process from becoming a customer until the go-live date for the warehouse, but considering how many systems and different parties were involved, I think it went very smoothly. From my perspective, I had to apply much of my knowledge in logistics but also had to be very inventive to solve their problems."

An example of engineering ingenuity from Tianfu, who has a master's degree in engineering physics from Chalmers University of Technology and has worked at Ongoing for 6 years, is during Royal Design's delivery process when carriers come and pick up pallets filled with various types of goods. The problem before was that the carrier often couldn't take all the pallets in one truck according to the correct order of operations. At the same time, it was not practical to scan and register each individual pallet being loaded into the truck. "After some back-and-forth discussion, we came up with a good solution where we simply put an incrementally increasing ID on each pallet queued for pickup, which meant that we only needed to scan the first pallet that didn't fit with the truck to know how many, and which pallets, went with the delivery."

Efficiency Processes in Continuous Development

In return for having a personal contact and software developer, Ongoing prefers to have a single-point-of-contact with the client to streamline communication. In this case, the main responsibility fell on Jimmy. "Of course, many of us at the warehouse use Ongoing WMS, and we make joint decisions regarding the development of processes and continuous improvements. In the warehouse we have our Technical and Systems lead Martin Kröger, who provides a deeper understanding of various aspects related to the WMS. We also have several system specialists who together streamline warehouse operations in different management projects, but Martin is the person who, along with me, has managed the dialogue with Tianfu about specific problems and challenges at the warehouse. For me, it is important that the entire operation develops with a focus on continuous improvements, and all employees need to constantly gain a better understanding of the process flow. This is something we have been able to accelerate thanks to fruitful dialogues with Tianfu, who then also carried out the development on Ongoing's side," he says.

A Bright Future Ahead with the Customer Promise in Focus

Jimmy concludes by talking about some of the benefits of using Ongoing: "We look a lot at data from Ongoing WMS and continuously achieve efficiencies at the warehouse based on this. For example, we have a much better track of the articles' path through the warehouse now than before. We work much more efficiently linked to many improvements that mean we do not need as much staff on site as before. Many processes that we have carried out have also been put in an automated standard that helps us further focus on the customer experience and constantly keep the customer promise in focus. We have several important projects to complete in the future that will have a major effect on the overall goal of continuously improving the customer experience and shortening delivery times. And we look forward to continued cooperation with Ongoing!"

Fredrik Einarsson, CEO of Ongoing, has also been involved from the start and offers some concluding words: "Since I know what our software is capable of, I was completely confident that Ongoing's model would suit a large customer like Royal Design. We will continue to develop their logistics flows so that they can continue to save time and money. From our side, we are incredibly proud to have such a fine customer and brand as Royal Design among our clients!"

Rains Uses Ongoing WMS.

Rains' Collaborative Implementation of Ongoing WMS led to Logistical Excellence

In the fall of 2023, the outerwear brand Rains implemented Ongoing as their first WMS and are already noticing great results. Behind the success is a close collaboration between our senior customer-responsible software engineer Jakob Nilsson and the Rains team.

Rains is a lifestyle brand that has redefined the outerwear segment with its conceptual and functional design ethos. Drawing inspiration from the urban lifestyle and characterized by a signature waterproof fabric identity, Rains' collections offer a contemporary reinterpretation of the classic rubber raincoat with sustainability in mind. Central to Rains' operational prowess and strategic expansion is its collaboration with Ongoing, a partnership that has significantly bolstered their supply chain efficiency and operational agility. Hear Christopher Jarrov, Head of Supply Chain at Rains, and Jakob Nilsson, Senior Customer Responsible Software Engineer at Ongoing, comment on the WMS journey that led to logistical success.

The Selection of Ongoing WMS

Christopher Jarrov starts by providing a look into Rains' decision-making process that led to the adoption of Ongoing WMS. Up until then, Rains had exclusively been using their ERP system for their warehouse operations. Only relying on an ERP solution might sometimes be enough for smaller businesses, but as growth takes off and efficiency becomes crucial, something more powerful is often required. Therefore, faced with both substantial growth and the absence of a WMS system, Rains sought a solution that matched its specific needs for flexibility, efficiency, and growth potential.

Their decision to adopt Ongoing WMS was influenced by several key factors that stood out during their search. Jarrov explains what was pivotal in their decision: "Ongoing’s WMS was standing out on several parameters such as great support and honesty in the approach for the demo meetings, and they were at an early stage able to match Rains demands of required WMS functionalities." The system's user-friendly interface, effective location control, and seamless API integration capabilities were among the decisive factors for Rains. These have collectively propelled Rains' warehouse handling to new heights, enabling the brand to support its strategic business growth more effectively.

The Impact of Ongoing WMS on Rains

The implementation of Ongoing WMS has been transformative for Rains, enabling the brand to manage warehouse activities across multiple sites with unprecedented efficiency. Jarrov details the benefits: "In general, we've gained more security and transparent data quality in our work. We've also increased our picking performance by 50%, and reduced staff cost by approximately 25%."

A 50% increase in picking performance is particularly noteworthy. This enhancement directly translates into faster order processing times, enabling Rains to handle a higher volume of orders with the same or fewer resources. This improvement in operational speed and efficiency not only supports Rains' growth ambitions by allowing for scalability but also plays an important role in improving customer satisfaction through quicker delivery times and more reliable service.

Equally significant is the 25% reduction in staffing costs. By automating routine tasks, streamlining warehouse processes, and providing employees with intuitive tools and data, Ongoing WMS has enabled Rains to optimize its labor resources. Moreover, the adoption of Ongoing WMS has bolstered the security and transparency of Rains' warehouse operations. The cloud-based platform ensures that data regarding stock levels, order status, and warehouse activities are always up-to-date and accessible, enabling more informed decision-making and strategic planning.

Collaboration with Jakob Nilsson

The successful implementation of Ongoing WMS at Rains was made possible through a close collaboration with their personal contact and customer-responsible software engineer Jakob Nilsson. The teamwork between Nilsson and Rains is described by Jarrov as a "true experience." He shares that the partnership has been characterized by professionalism, swift problem-solving, and a pleasant journey from planning to execution. "We are getting the best support and prompt reaction from Jakob," says Jarrov, acknowledging Nilsson's significant role in the seamless integration of Ongoing WMS into Rains' operations.

The Journey from Start to Finish

Jakob Nilsson, who acted as a key figure in the integration and development process, shares his insights on the journey from conception to successful execution, highlighting the nuances of the project and the mutual respect that has underscored the collaboration with Rains. His experience working with Rains has been exceptionally positive, characterized by clear communication and constructive feedback. "They have been excellent to work with," he begins.

The process of integrating Ongoing WMS at Rains followed a standard setup but was distinguished by the thoroughness and organization of the Rains team. Nilsson describes the initial phase: "The process was quite typical for how Ongoing usually conducts the implementation process. Rains described their wishes and requirements for the order flow, and I explained how it could be solved in Ongoing with our various processes." A week before going live, he visited Rains on-site in Århus, Denmark, to get a better understanding of how they work in the warehouse, an insightful visit to identify what could be even further improved ahead. He also trained the warehouse staff in using Ongoing WMS' desktop and scanning module. Training is usually performed remotely by Ongoing, but upon Rains' request, Nilsson packed his bags and traveled to their warehouse in Denmark.

Nilsson also made a point to acknowledge the crucial contribution of Patrick Lyngs, IT Business Process Consultant at Rains, stating, "Patrick has played a huge part in the success of the implementation and integration of Ongoing WMS. His ability to articulate Rains' needs and structure their requirements has been key to achieving a seamless go-live process and overall satisfaction with the system."

Tailored Solutions and Special Processes

Rains' operational requirements led to the development of customized solutions within the WMS. Nilsson explains: "A unique aspect of their operation is that they use pallet items for picking their large B2B orders, which helps them keep track of what has been picked and placed in each box. Additionally, they have implemented a process where items for these large orders are picked to designated sorting areas." This process, designed to manage orders that may consist of hundreds of boxes, simplifies the operation and ensures systematic tracking of where each box related to the order is located within the warehouse.

The integration of Ongoing WMS with Rains' existing systems was another piece of the puzzle for operational synergy. "They have an integration with the shipping platform Webshipper and their existing ERP system. The connection between Ongoing WMS and Webshipper was already available via our extensive integration ecosystem. For their ERP, however, the software consultancy company nemEDI ApS built a customized integration to Ongoing WMS." These integrations facilitate a streamlined workflow, from inventory management to shipping, enhancing both efficiency and transparency.

Clear Skies Ahead

As Rains looks to the future, the benefits of the Ongoing WMS platform are clear. "With Ongoing WMS, we at Rains have become more professional in our working procedures and processes," Jarrov concludes. This partnership has laid a solid foundation for Rains to meet its future business growth plans, highlighting the critical role of strategic technological partnerships in achieving operational and strategic goals and reinforcing its commitment to excellence in the outerwear industry.

Logistik 27 uses Ongoing WMS

3PL Logistik 27 Made Substantial Savings with Ongoing WMS

In a recent interview, Magnus Rosèn at Logistik 27 provided insights on the significant impact of Ongoing WMS on their operations: high adaptability, increased efficiency, economic benefits, great support, and more.

At the heart of Tranemo, Sweden, beside the bustling route of Highway 27, lies Logistik 27 — a dynamic 3PL logistics center known not just for its strategic location but also for its innovative approach to logistics management. A subsidiary of NRI Group AB, Logistik 27 prides itself on its employee-centric philosophy and a flat organizational structure that accelerates the journey from idea to implementation. Magnus Rosèn, Transport Coordinator at Logistik 27, recently shared how the company has integrated technology to enhance its operations.

Choosing Ongoing WMS

When it came to selecting a warehouse management system, Logistik 27 had clear criteria: the solution needed to be user-friendly and offer vast development possibilities. Ongoing WMS stood out as the preferred choice. According to Magnus Rosèn, "We chose Ongoing because it is easy to work with and the development possibilities are almost endless. Moreover, the toolbox covers everything we need." This decision underscores the importance of flexibility and scalability in logistics operations, where the ability to adapt and evolve with market demands is highly important.

Benefits and Savings

Ongoing WMS is the heart of Logistik 27's entire operation, Rosèn explains. The adoption of Ongoing WMS has led to notable savings and efficiencies for them. Specifically, he highlighted significant savings made in developments of the integration to nShift, leveraging their carriers' strengths to save approximately 250,000 SEK (approx. €22,160 or $24,130) a single year by adjusting a setting in their rulebook. "It's hard to say in general what we've saved, but it's clearly significant amounts," he noted. Strategic adjustments in the WMS can lead to substantial cost savings, a task our skilled customer-responsible software engineers excel at, ensuring optimizations are both effective and efficient.

Collaboration with Ongoing

The collaboration between Logistik 27 and Ongoing's developers has been a key factor in the successful implementation and utilization of the WMS. Highlighting the importance of support and collaboration, Rosèn praised their interactions with Ongoing's staff, particularly Andreas Jönsson. "The cooperation with our contact and developer at Ongoing, Andreas [Jönsson], has been the best part of all. Quick actions and a great understanding of what we want to achieve," he remarked. But he also took the time to praise other Ongoing employees whom he has been in touch with, "In addition, very pleasant staff who respond quickly, are incredibly knowledgeable, and have a tremendous understanding of what we want the end result of our cases to be."

Andreas Jönsson also comments on the collaboration: "The setup of Logistik 27 was both exciting and challenging. We had to develop a lot of new standard functionality to be able to support Logistik 27's processes. All contacts with the counterparts at Logistik 27 have always been very positive."

The Journey Ahead

The collaboration between Logistik 27's forward-thinking approach and Ongoing's innovative solutions has been able to streamline their operations, significantly reduce costs, and enhance customer satisfaction. As Logistik 27 continues to navigate the complexities of logistics and supply chain management, their commitment to adaptability, efficiency, and collaboration remains a guiding light along the heart of Highway 27.

NTG Logistics AB uses Ongoing WMS

NTG Logistics AB and Ongoing WMS: Pioneering Customizable Solutions in 3PL Distribution

Skipper Jørgensen, IT Manager at the 3PL provider NTG Logistics AB, explains how the flexibility and adaptability of Ongoing WMS have greatly benefited their customers.

NTG Logistics AB, part of the leading transporter group NTG | Nordic Transport Group A/S headquartered in Denmark, has carved a niche in 3PL distribution and forwarding. Part of their success is their strategic partnership with Ongoing, the WMS used to streamline NTG Logistic AB's operations and offer customizable solutions to their clients. Skipper Jørgensen, the IT Manager at NTG Logistics AB, sheds light on this collaboration and its impact on their operations.

Tailored Solutions for Complex Needs

Jørgensen articulates the journey that led NTG Logistics AB to choose Ongoing WMS, highlighting the versatility and growth potential it offered. "Over the years, we have worked in many different systems as we often started new collaborations with customers by working directly in their own systems." This approach, while flexible, did not provide a sustainable solution. Their experience with their client's various Warehouse Management Systems eventually led them to Ongoing WMS. Jørgensen emphasizes, "Although we got to test out numerous system solutions, we never really found 'the one'. Then, Ongoing offered what we needed and we saw opportunities to grow in Ongoing WMS without incurring spiraling costs." The system's adaptability and the potential for deviation from standard routines on goods owner (customer) level were significant factors in their choice.


Centralizing Operations with Ongoing WMS

Describing the integration of Ongoing WMS into NTG Logistics AB's workflow, Jørgensen notes its central role. "At our company, Ongoing is used as the central engine in our operations." He explains that the system is seamlessly integrated with both their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Transport Administration (TA) systems to minimize manual interventions. This integration is not just about efficiency but also about providing comprehensive solutions, as Jørgensen points out: "All invoices related to warehousing and handling are created in Ongoing WMS. Furthermore, the connection to our TA system allows our customers, the goods owners, to easily access relevant shipping data at the order level if desired."


Adaptability and Efficiency: The Core Advantages

Jørgensen is particularly vocal about the advantages of Ongoing WMS. The system's adaptability is a standout feature, especially given NTG Logistics AB's diverse customer base across various industries. He states, "Over the years, we have encountered many requirements, wishes, and ideas that we previously had to decline, but with Ongoing WMS, we now actually have a fair chance of offering these to our customers. We can make significant changes in the system that only affect one goods owner." He also emphasizes how pleased they are with the simple interface and short onboarding time for administration, customers, and warehouse staff. "It's easy to recognize and navigate the system, which in turn increases overall efficiency and reduces our lead times."


Exemplary Collaboration and Support

Speaking on the collaboration with Ongoing's customer representatives, Jørgensen expresses high satisfaction and how it has exceeded all expectations. The support and responsiveness from Jakob Nilsson and Frida Eriksson, both experienced software engineers, have been noteworthy, especially when dealing with urgent needs. "In 9 out of 10 cases, we have a solution or an action plan on the table before the day is over," he remarks, underlining the efficiency and effectiveness of their work together. He also elaborates on how their personal representatives at Ongoing have been able to find technical solutions. "No matter what kind of silly ideas I've had, with their help, I have managed to reach my goals, even if the lead time has been extremely short sometimes."

Frida Eriksson also shares her satisfaction with the smooth collaboration: "The collaboration has been effective right from the start. The communication with NTG Logistics AB's representatives is clear and well-structured, which greatly simplifies my role as a customer-responsible software engineer. We have jointly developed the system, adding various features that make their daily work more efficient and easier, which is gratifying to witness. Moreover, they are exceptionally pleasant to interact with."


Looking Ahead

The strategic decision to integrate Ongoing WMS into NTG Logistics AB’s operations underlines the importance of adaptability and customer-centric solutions in the logistics industry. As Skipper Jørgensen's insights reveal, this collaboration has not only streamlined NTG Logistics AB's operations but has also set a new benchmark in warehouse management and customer service within the 3PL sector.

The system's scalability was another key factor in our decision, making Ongoing the obvious choice."

Seamless Integration and Enhanced Efficiency

Ongoing WMS is not just a stand-alone solution for ReuseIT. It's fully integrated with the Fortnox Business System and nShift's Delivery Management, offering comprehensive order and inventory management capabilities. "We've also linked it to our custom production system through Ongoing's versatile API connections," Bågenholm added. This level of integration ensures that all aspects of the business operate smoothly and efficiently, fulfilling ReuseIT’s commitment to quality and environmental stewardship.

One of the most compelling benefits of implementing Ongoing WMS has been the significant time savings. "We have gained full control over our entire inventory, resulting in a 3-4 hour reduction in daily handling time for orders and inventory management," Bågenholm elaborated. The system’s customizable and user-friendly interfaces have also made a positive impact, offering clear insights into material inflows and outflows, thereby simplifying day-to-day operations.

Effective Collaboration and Mutual Respect

Discussing the collaboration with Ongoing and specifically his customer representative, Gustav Pettersson, he is more than pleased. "Our collaboration with our dedicated software developer and contact at Ongoing has been extremely effective, characterized by quick responses and action times," Bågenholm praised. "Whenever possible, new, customized features have been implemented to our great satisfaction," he added, underscoring the adaptability and customer-focused approach of Ongoing.

Gustav also weighed in on the collaboration, saying, "ReuseIT is one of the largest clients I've personally onboarded, so there's a sense of pride I carry with me because of that. I've been working with them from the start, and they were one of my very first clients when I began working at Ongoing two years ago." He further elaborated on the partnership, adding, "I really enjoy working with Pierre. He's super friendly and a fun guy to talk to. He's one of those clients where you feel like you're building a relationship, rather than just ticking off tasks and answering questions."

A Testament to Sustainable Innovation

In closing, Pierre Bågenholm wholeheartedly endorsed Ongoing WMS, stating, "We highly recommend Ongoing WMS to anyone seeking a robust, flexible, and user-friendly Warehouse Management System for their business."

In all, the union of Ongoing WMS and ReuseIT serves as a prime example of how technology can be harnessed to not just increase efficiency but to also champion sustainability—a cornerstone of ReuseIT’s business philosophy.

3PLogistiikka uses Ongoing WMS

Optimizing 3PL Logistics: 3PLogistiikka's Adoption of Ongoing WMS

3PLogistiikka, a logistics powerhouse in Finland and Estonia and led by their CEO Jussi Örn, illustrates how Ongoing WMS has become an integral part of their operations.

In the dynamic world of e-commerce and logistics, companies often find themselves at crossroads, choosing between systems and strategies to deliver optimal services. Leading the pack in Finland is 3PLogistiikka with their CEO Jussi Örn in charge. In a recent interview, he shared insights into their journey and the key role Ongoing WMS plays in their operations.

Örn introduces the operational scope of 3PLogistiikka, highlighting, "We are strong in fulfillment services for import, commerce, and eCommerce. 3PLogistiikka houses warehouse facilities in 9 locations and in total, we employ more than 100 warehouse workers in Finland and Estonia." The company has established itself as the fastest-growing logistics operator in its sector in Finland, leveraging strategic acquisitions and a focus on optimizing the complete supply chain through data sharing with their customers – the goods owners.


WMS Selection and Implementation

Choosing a powerful, reliable, and integrative warehouse management system was essential in enhancing 3PLogistiikkas’s operational capabilities. Örn outlines the decision-making process, explaining, "3PLogistiikka has former experience with numerous warehouse management systems and chose Ongoing WMS after a broad comparison between different systems. Of the compared systems, Ongoing had the best ecosystem of ready-made integrations and being a reliable true cloud-based software."

The implementation of Ongoing WMS within 3PLogistiikka was comprehensive, encompassing various operational facets. Örn details how the system is used today, "Ongoing is used at workstations, handheld devices, and tablets. 3PLogistiikka is currently investing in picking automation which is integrated with Ongoing." This facilitates a seamless, efficient, and technologically harmonized workflow throughout their warehouses.

Highlighting the tangible benefits, Jussi provides insights into the system's capabilities, saying, "The biggest benefit with Ongoing WMS on the warehouse floor is the great compatibility with different devices. Handling eCom campaigns with Ongoing order tools improves warehouse efficiency significantly."


The Collaborative Backbone for Success

The success story is not just about technology; it is significantly about the people behind the scenes. Örn acknowledges the positive and constructive alliance. He states, "Co-operation with a dedicated Customer-responsible Software Engineer at Ongoing is fast and straightforward."

Daniel Svensson, 3PLogistiikkas’s first point of contact at Ongoing and personal software engineer, recounts his experiences: "Working with 3PLogistiikka has been nothing short of smooth. They always come with very concrete requests where they have already done much of the groundwork beforehand. Then, it's mostly just about executing what they have asked for without any fuss."

Juhani Kammonen, IT Manager at 3PLogistiikka, has predominantly been working closely with the engineers at Ongoing. Daniel continues with an example of the smooth collaboration, "For instance, when a goods owner requests additional services for their transport bookings, Juhani promptly contacts Ongoing. By then, he has already identified the relevant service in the API and provides clear guidance on when to apply or not apply the service."

Mattias Johnson later took over as 3PLogistiikka's contact at Ongoing. Sharing his perspective, Mattias says, "By the time I came onboard, 3PLogistiikka had a complete and operative system in place. Today, they occasionally request minor adjustments, from revamping reports to tailoring settings. My interactions, especially with Juhani, have always been constructive and efficient. He is easy to work with, competent, and always a bliss to chat with."

Embracing Modern Innovations

3PLogistiikka's decision to integrate Ongoing WMS into their operations underscores their commitment to continuous improvement and adaptability. The platform, while advanced, is just one of the tools they've adopted in their quest to provide consistent, high-quality service. By embracing the capabilities of Ongoing WMS, 3PLogistiikka ensures they stay attuned to the evolving needs of their clients and the industry at large, a testament to their thoughtful approach and dedication to delivering quality in our ever-evolving digital age.
