Original situation

Starting the transformation journey together

We started a truly unique journey with NL Pharma. There were no internal people or any logistic expertise present in the company in their first days. This meant they had to climb a very steep learning curve in a short time. BizBloqs has felt privileged to be their go-to partner at such an early stage, allowing us to be their source of knowledge. They were able to benefit from BizBloqs’ expertise, guidance and solutions, applying best practices to give NL Pharma the best possible start.

 

Unexpected findings

The original starting conversation was tilted towards a centralized financial system, which was later corrected to centralize the logistics operation for all their warehouse needs instead. BizBloqs is convinced that this has been a contributor to NL Pharma’s great success.

Current situation

Fast-forward to 5 years later and NL Pharma has grown exponentially. Their warehouse is packed to the rim an warehouse mechanization implementations will be needed soon to achieve the level of efficiency required for their current and future size of operations.

 

They are our best practice for growing their applied BizBloqs solution along with their business and they will make full use of the tools available for their next level as well. BizBloqs takes great pride in its ability to offer any small solution to a small problem as a starting point, to finally arrive at solving advanced, highly complex and large-scaled logistic challenges that would intimidate enterprises.

 

Final words

Always happy to turn to BizBloqs for the solutions to their challenges, both companies are looking forward to plan and execute the mechanization tools integration to optimize use of the warehouse space available. It has been a truly unique shared journey so far and we all look forward to see where we go next.

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.
