SFL supplies two-way radios to L’Occitane
Written by: Sam Fenwick | Published:

SFL Mobile Radio has provided international retailer L’Occitane with two-way radios for its London-based distribution centre.

The company, which offers natural skin care and beauty products, bought nine MOTOTRBO DP1400 radios to use at its distribution centre which supplies 86 of its UK and Ireland stores as well as its wholesale accounts.

Distribution Centre manager James Lemon said: “We have an internal fulfilment department on site and our E-com operations are based here, so lots of moving parts across two warehouse units.

“For us it’s all about time saving. There is nothing worse than walking around the warehouse trying to find someone, often for the simplest of things.

“The new radios have definitely saved us a lot of hours since we started using them,” he added.

Lemon added that while the warehouse was using two-way radios before this purchase from SFL Mobile Radio, they weren’t effective.

“The radios were basic models that didn’t cost much at all. They were also unlicensed so we had a few issues with them in terms of quality and interference from other users in the area.”

“And not hearing baby monitors, other workers in the area and people singing nearby now we have a license is also a nice little bonus.”
