Avya Inventrax Pvt. Ltd. (DBA: Inventrax) has successfully installed its flagship warehouse management system FalconWMS on the 28th of March 2022, at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)’s manufacturing site in Nairobi, Kenya.

Inventrax, India, and GlaxoSmithKline, Nairobi on 28th March 2022 announced that they have completed the digital transformation of their manufacturing warehouse by implementing Falcon Warehouse Management System (FalconWMS) to automate GSK’s warehouse operations to improve adherence to GMP and regulatory requirements. The warehouse management and task orchestration system empowers the production operations to fulfil GSK requirements with high precision through lean manufacturing practices. Seamless integration with GSK ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system QAD MFG/PRO and auto-data capture (AIDC) enables the warehouse operators to post accurate data to the Line-of-Business applications, thus avoiding discrepancies between physical and system stocks.

Inventrax began working with the GlaxoSmithKline from mid of 2021 to apply a LEAN-inventory approach and identify potential opportunities to improve warehouse operations, as well as define the processes that will support an optimized storage & retrieval model.

“To supply stocks to South Africa, West Africa, North Africa, and beyond, we must modernize our system,” said GSK site director Paul Arunga. He continued to add that “Once upon a time it took about two days for stock taking and reconciliation but now with this system, we can pull out the inventory and proceed with confirmation in matter of hours. This is the beginning of GSK’s Digital Transformation and Data Analytics attribute which is a key pillar for us going forward.”

“It’s a privilege for us to be a part of GSK’s Digital Transformation Journey in modernizing the manufacturing plants and implementing our Falcon Warehouse Management System for such high compliance manufacturing plants,” said Suresh Yerikireddi, CEO of Inventrax. “The success of this first phase opens the doors for us to move forward with such implementations in other cGMP and lean manufacturing sites.”
