Stadium distributes all its goods through Unifaun’s TA system
January 18, 2013
Stadium, Sweden’s leading retail chain in sports and sports fashion, has a large flow of goods that need to be distributed from their central warehouses to their shops. To streamline the handling of transport and shipping documents, they’ve decided to use three of Unifaun’s TA system solutions.
In addition to their Stadium shops, the company also comprises specialty concept stores Stadium Ski, Stadium Plus and Stadium Outlet. Sporty imagery, clear divisions and affordable products give customers inspiration for an active life. They want to provide good service by offering the right products at the right time in their shops. They transport, handle and store their merchandise with high efficiency and with a focus on the customer and the environment. Their central warehouse is located in Norrköping and all goods are distributed from there to their shops.
Stadium uses Gothenburg-based Unifaun’s product Unifaun PrintServer, which comprises locally installed software integrated with Stadium’s stock management system SwissLog, WarehouseManager. With this approach, they can handle shipping documents and choose transport methods in their stock management system, and get automatic printouts of the shipping labels through Unifaun PrintServer. As the shipping labels are printed out, the information from Unifaun PrintServer is matched against the order list so that every order receives a tracking number. This enables them to follow each order and see what each package contains.
Unifaun Online in the shops
Stadium uses Unifaun’s web-based solution Unifaun Online to print out shipping documents and send goods from their shops. At the service office in Norrköping, profile log-ins are created for each shop, enabling them to control exactly what will appear in the interface in Unifaun Online out in the shops. This means that the dispatcher is always correctly filled in, so that packages can only be sent to shops selected by the service office, and that only one or two shipping methods can be selected. This makes it very user-friendly for shop employees, enabling them to send goods without having any training in Unifaun Online.
“Unifaun Online’s profile management makes things easier for both us and our employees out in the shops. The shops can now easily print out a shipping label with the transport method pre-entered,” says Daniel Johansson, Logistics Manager at Stadium in Norrköping.
Pacsoft Online in the webshop
Stadium’s webshop uses the TA system Unifaun developed for Posten, Pacsoft Online, with the service ERPConnect with direct print. The system is used by Posten’s direct customers and is now Sweden’s most widely used system for the production of transport records, goods tracking and EDI communication.
Stadium is Sweden’s leading retail chain in sport and sport fashion with 120 shops in Sweden, Denmark and Finland.
In addition to their Stadium shops, the company also comprises specialty concept stores Stadium Ski, Stadium Plus and Stadium Outlet. It also includes the subsidiaries Stadium Promotion, Stadium Solutions and Stadium Sports Camp (svb). Mother company Stadium AB in Norrköping is the service office for the shops. IKANO S/A is joint-owner with a 25% holding.
