AVM is digitalising its logistics, thanks to A-SIS (SAVOYE) and its WMS, maGistor.


One year on from the operational deployment of maGistor, AVM has achieved a 9% rise in hourly productivity. In addition, the optimisation of flows and physical movements, as well as the space savings, have led to a 5% reduction in operating costs.

4200m² , 22 employees, 2500 professional customers

AVM has been operating from Paray-le-Monial in Burgundy for 35 years. It was created by the Emmanuel Community to market and distribute Christian books, DVDs, and CDs. It serves 2500 professional and 40,000 private customers.

Rethinking its logistics to improve productivity

In 2017, the company decided to overhaul its information system, and in early 2018 it integrated the maGistor solution. The WMS has helped to optimise storage space, by saving space as well as providing product traceability with fine scheduling. This means that AVM can keep track of its logistics flows in real time.

In parallel, maGistor has also facilitated the integration and training of temporary staff in the warehouse and has provided greater convenience for operators.

»Our growth and the introduction of new catalogue items into our inventory demonstrated the limitations of our ERP and its management capacity. It was no longer able to support our logistics on its own. It was essential for us to equip ourselves with a dedicated software package,«explains Jérôme Barbier, Operations, Quality Assurance, and IS Audit Manager at AVM.

The deployment of maGistor was an opportunity to re-think how the logistics teams operate, with the implementation of a level of supervision, and training and upskilling of personnel.

According to Thierry Debionne, AVM's Managing Director,»maGistor is a real step forward for our company and our employees. In acquiring maGistor, we are investing in our future. We are now able to offer industrial-quality logistics, with more than 665,000 packages shipped in 2018.«
