Case Story: BoConcept

Transforming warehouse logistics: The power of Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics

BoConcept faced the challenge of managing several non-communicating systems. They found their solution with Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics™, our central monitoring system that optimized their logistics without downtime, ensuring reliability, and cost savings for the future.

New WMS increased operational stability and efficiency

BoConcept A/S has grown over a period of 60 years from being a small joinery shop to an international retail concept, with over 250 stores and 40 studios in more than 60 countries. BoConcept creates modern designer furniture for people who love the urbane lifestyle. Since the company was founded in Denmark in 1952, it has built up a tradition of creating high-quality designer furniture at attractive prices.

BoConcept chose to collaborated with us to regain control over their outdated Warehouse Management System (WMS) solution and upgrading it to our Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics™ solution without replacing existing material handling equipment.

Through our solution they managed to reduce their number of logistics providers, from four to just one. Additionally, it had been 10 years since the old systems where updated. Today, we have ensured that the system is given regular software updates - and setbacks, such as breakdowns and unplanned stops are almost non-existent within their logistics operations.

The Challenge:​

Several old systems not communicating with each other

To manage material handling equipment, for example, high-bay, robots, and conveyors, BoConcept had several older systems running alongside their ERP system. None of the systems communicated with each other, making it difficult to get a clear overview and quick reaction to any mishaps. With a high risk of daily breakdowns, leading to delays, and software providers went out of business or unable to provide cost-effective updates, it was crucial to find a new future-proof solution. With evolving demands within global retail and e-commerce, their old management system had to be improved drastically, with no-stand-still during an implementation.

Our Solution:

Implementing Lyngsoe Live Logistics™ as the central monitoring system

Lyngsoe Systems was chosen as the preferred partner to optimize and create a smart, stable infrastructure for BoConcept’s logistics operations. Through a comprehensive specification phase done without supporting documentation on existing systems and interfaces, Lyngsoe Systems managed to gain control over the entire logistic flow and to implement Lyngsoe LIVE logistics™ including a SCADA solution as their central monitoring system. The material handling equipment would continue to work during and after the implementation, which was done over one weekend with two additional weeks of supervision, avoiding any downtime for BoConcept’s operations.

With Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics™ BoConcept avoided replacing their existing equipment and gained a comprehensive solution to manage all logistic processes and equipment. With now only one provider, a radical increase of reliability in operations, regular software updates, and a clearly structured overview, the project has been a great success for BoConcept saving costs on future service, upgrades, staff, and integrations. 

"The Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics™ WMS is an up-to-date system for our warehouses, giving us the ability to modify for future improvements, regardless of Windows or any other software changes. With a professional and friendly collaboration, we’ve achieved the best from both sides, making this a good and insightful project. We can only recommend Lyngsoe Systems as a professional and competent supplier and service provider of Warehouse Management Systems."
