The common history of Pcdata and Kronenbrot already dates back into the last century. Since many years, the company is using the „Distrib Put to Light“ system in its production and distribution facilities.
Based on the upcoming changes in the production and robust growth in delivery volumes, Kronenbrot has now decided to upgrade and expand its existing „Distrib Put to Light“ systems. Some of the installations are already 17 or 18 years old and are being replaced with completely new hardware.
In the course of the last few months Kronenbrot has already decided to upgrade the software versions of all installations to the latest software release Distrib4.14 from Pcdata, Kronenbrot will not only be able to make these transformations and replacement of the system hardware far easier, but it will also provide Kronenbrot dozens of options to continue the integration of the systems both internally between sites as well as in their ERP environment. Moreover, some of the key benefits of newer software versions are now accessible, which means that Kronenbrot can further improve its delivery operations.
