MONTREAL — Generix Group has successfully completed the first remote implementation of its product, the SOLOCHAIN WMS/MES, at Hitachi Astemo Americas’ Querétaro facility (Mexico).

Experts at Generix Group have delivered a complete SaaS version of the WMS in 15 weeks, within the client’s time constraints, despite Covid related restrictions preventing the implementation team from being deployed on site at that time.

Hitachi Astemo Americas is a global manufacturer of automotive parts that supplies automobile manufacturers around the world. Their Querétaro facility is approximately 1 million square feet, and employs hundreds of workers, and operating 24/7.

“I’m not surprised to see our teams manage such a feat given the outstanding quality of the people we have working here,” said Ludovic Luzza, CEO and General Manager at Generix Group North America. “But that doesn’t mean I’m any less proud of their success! The IoT has become pivotal in how companies go about digitizing their warehouses. Our ability to implement remotely the SaaS version of SOLOCHAIN just goes to show how agile our cloud-based WMS and our people are.”


During this second phase, engineers also fully integrated the warehouse management system with Hitachi’s ERP system, client facing applications, and suppliers’ systems.
