Entering the World of Automation & Integration
Since 1994, Gopal Namkeen has been recognized as one of the largest automatic plants spread over 75000 Sq.ft. in Rajkot. Gopal Namkeen’s crunchy, mouth-watering Snack Pellets are extremely popular in all age groups.
Innovations were brewing at one of the largest automatic plants in India. Gopal Namkeen’s ambitions were stymied by its reliance on traditional hosting, a lack of a barcode reading system, and non-integrated sales systems.
Challenges Related to Automation & Integration
Gopal Namkeen faced significant challenges with being able to rapidly accelerate, scale, and improve its packing and dispatch architecture at the start of the pandemic. The problem could be attributed to three factors: traditional hosting, slow, independent systems that did not integrate well, and reliance on a labor-intensive, error-prone, non-integrated sales platform that was difficult to use for packing and despatch.
As Bipin Hadvani, Managing Director at Gopal Namkeen Group described it, “Our system and processes couldn’t maintain pace with our brand, catalog, and product range because we did not have the ability to move as aggressively as we would have liked.”
Solutions we Offered
The project had to be done entirely remotely due to Covid-19 restrictions. In spite of this, the team managed to complete it in just two months. This is how Aeonx approached the task and completed it in such a short amount of time-
- Built a system that can read barcodes
- Developed a dispatching system that integrates sales orders
- Hosting of the solution within a development environment
- Testing by AeonX and Gopal Snacks team for end-to-end portal functionalities.
- DNS update for domain authentication and CName records.
- Provide live setup + support for 1 month after going live
With the help of AWS Advanced Tier Services Partner, Aeonx, and its Greengrass technology solution powered by AWS, Gopal Namkeen automated these critical processes and integrated its disparate legacy systems into a cohesive technology stack. By focusing its resources on business strategy rather than on time-consuming manual processes, Gopal Namkeen has improved key marketplace KPIs and grown nearly 10x in the last year.
