In the bustling heart of Berlin, a story of digital innovation and professional craftsmanship unfolds at Contorion. This company isn't just any wholesale retailer; it's a mission-driven enterprise dedicated to delivering the finest tools and workshop supplies online, crafting time and cost efficiencies for craftsmen and craftswomen everywhere.

However, the road to operational excellence is fraught with obstacles. Scarce resources, a lack of qualified specialists, and a high susceptibility to errors in order processing can significantly hamper progress. Contorion faced such challenges head-on, transforming them into a blueprint for success with the help of Workist.


The Challenge: A Daunting Task

Picture this: sifting through order confirmations for hundreds of items from 113 different warehouse suppliers, each sending PDF documents for manual review. “We sometimes have 500–600 items on an order confirmation, and then you need almost the whole day to check these items,” explains Valentina Yakupova, Senior Logistic Manager at Contorion. The process was not just time-consuming, but also a drain on valuable resources.


The Solution: Enter Workist

The game changed with Workist's intervention. This AI-powered platform turned a cumbersome process into a streamlined operation. "With Workist, the work has become much easier. So the job is definitely more fun... In every company, time is money, and this saves us so much time that I can do other tasks that I sometimes would have done another day," says Christina Laurisch, Logistics Administrator at Contorion.
