   - Use of barcode and RFID technologies to speed up warehouse processes.

4. Automation of order processing

   - Introduction of EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) systems for automated communication and order processing with customers and suppliers.

   - Implementation of workflow automation to reduce manual intervention and speed up processing times.

5. Training and Change Management

   - Training employees in the use of the new digital tools and systems.
