AS Colour embarked on a strategy to support the company’s expected growth over the next decade. This path to digital transformation includes more efficient warehouse operations, improved environmental performance and greater supply chain resilience.
With a much higher density warehouse environment, ensuring high-performance Wi-Fi was essential. AS Colour turned to Extreme Networks’ partner Dematic to upgrade the basic Cisco wireless infrastructure in its Melbourne and Auckland warehouses to cloud-based Extreme network infrastructure, comprising AP510C access points supported by the ExtremeCloud IQ management platform.
With their new infrastructure in place, AS Colour has seen a 25 -30% increase in pick rates, as well as a considerable increase in operational efficiencies and network visibility.
