UNIQUE CUSTOMER SCENARIO:

Before working with BizBloqs, everything was handled manually. The collaboration led to a massive increase in efficiency and order processing.

 

 

REASON FOR CHOOSING BIZBLOQS:

After the first introduction by Exact, A-dam found a partner in BizBloqs that takes a joint ownership to optimize all their processes.

Original situation

A-dam started with a fully manual operation and basically using progressive insight to improve their business processes. This led to a lot of human effort, which unfortunately also makes human errors unavoidable.

 

More importantly, their situation was rather inefficient across the board. Their methodology for warehousing was inefficient as well.

Despite their beautiful office, they were not structured to run an efficient logistic operation.

Starting the transformation journey together

A-dam is a customer of BizBloqs partner Exact and when they mentioned their logistic struggles, Exact was quick to make the introduction to the BizBloqs team.

 

Our experts joint forces with the A-dam team and studied all the logistic processes. The physical organization of the warehouse was completely restructured and corrected. Scanners were introduced and the picking process was finetuned.

 

Most importantly, BizBloqs was able to ensure that the solution A-dam was going to use would scale with their rapid growth, increasing complexity and growing needs for additional features.

 

Unexpected findings

The manual operations were proven truly inefficient when A-dam changed its picking process from order picking to batch picking. In combination with the optimized physical setup, the difference turned out to be night and day.

Current situation

A-dam can now proudly refer to itself as an extremely efficient fulfilment company for both business to business as business to consumer orders. Together we helped them to achieve this status without any concessions to their design and creation process that makes the company and its products so unique. Furthermore, they are still using the same Knight WMS system they started with, handling all the growth and expansions effortlessly.

Final words

A-dam has been a satisfied customer for a long time and truly appreciate our ability to analyze and address situations together. There is no doubt we will continue to do so for a long time.

PRODUCT SELECTOR

Welcome to the BizBloqs product selector. This is a tool we designed to guide you to the right subscription for your business.

If you are not sure how to answer a question, or you are not comfortable with the recommendation, please simply contact us and discuss it with one of our experts. It is our duty and pleasure to guide you to the best of our ability, making sure you arrive at the right well-informed choice that suits your needs perfectly.

INTRODUCTION

BizBloqs offers Business Processes as a Service (BPaaS) and has created a range of subscriptions that service the specific needs of customer profiles we have encountered often in the market.

Our solutions are designed in such a way that we can service the smallest businesses for their basic needs, while the same platform can service the most complex and elaborate logistic requirements as well. This level of scalability allows all our customers to make their subscription grow with their needs, no matter how rapidly they grow or increase the complexity.

STATEMENT 1

I only need very basic features and care most about my outbound process.

GAMBIT

Gambit is our entry-level solution that covers the basic needs for companies that are looking to digitize their order fulfilment processes.

The emphasis of this subscription is on the outbound processes, handling all common requirements with ease. Gambit includes the ability to integrate a web shop on the frontend or an ERP system in the backend.

Furthermore, you can connect your Gambit solution to a supported transporter of your choice. Your order fulfilment and stock management have never been easier.

STATEMENT 2

I only need basic features, but inbound and outbound processes are both very relevant for my requirements.

PAWN

Pawn is the second-tier subscription of BizBloqs. It offers all the capabilities of Gambit, but also adds full control over the purchasing process. If you are looking to take your business to the next level by digitizing all your warehouse processes altogether, Pawn is the right solution for you.

It offers location management out of the box, supporting one location per article as the standard. All basic processes any small or medium business might need are included, all based on the years of experience and elaborate expertise of BizBloqs. We have taken the best practices of implementations in the past so you can benefit from the best of our capabilities.

STATEMENT 3

I need some advanced features; my situation requires location management and/or we need digital support for batch picking. You could say my needs resemble a wholesaler, reseller or large web shop.

KNIGHT

Knight takes your digital logistic capabilities to the level you might see at large companies with a professional setup. In fact, BizBloqs services several companies at this level with its Knight solution. It offers the possibility to manage an article across multiple locations and offers digital management for your batch picking.

Knight is the right solution for you if you need to optimize fairly complex processes or large operations. If location management is a big part of your business, Knight is the right subscription level for you. This solution is popular amongst wholesalers, resellers and web shops in particular.

STATEMENT 4

I want a standard solution, but with all the bells and whistles. I manage multiple locations and zoning across my warehouses and deal with a lot of orders.

BISHOP

Bishop is the ultimate standard subscription with a wide range of features beyond the capabilities of Knight. It allows for dynamic location management, which allows you to keep track of your stock on the move at all times.

You can manage multiple locations and assign various location zones as per your requirements. Bishop can handle a great number of orders without effort. If this ultimate subscription still doesn’t meet your needs, you would need to consider a custom solution that is tailored specifically to your requirements.

CUSTOM

Clearly it will not be possible to make a straightforward recommendation for your needs. That’s perfectly fine, we have the expertise and experience to address your challenges. You will need to work with our experts to digitize your processes and define your workflow.

Our solutions are designed in such a way that we can service the smallest businesses for their basic needs, while the same platform can service the most complex and elaborate logistic requirements as well. We can do this without development in almost all cases, simply by configuring our solutions to reflect your situation perfectly.
