When Conn’s HomePlus decided it was time to ditch its paper-based processes in favor of a new warehouse management system (WMS), it cast a wide net. The national appliance, electronics and home goods retailer requested a proposal from 15 different vendors.
In an effort to counter the costs of meeting ever-rising customer expectations, businesses are increasingly searching for inefficiencies in their supply chain. The reality is there is almost no room for inefficiency in the race to stay competitive by keeping prices low while providing an exceptional customer experience.
Every organization realizes the importance of the supply chain in the overall health of the company. However, many are unsure of how to start optimizing their supply chain. It can seem overwhelming, even unapproachable, because that term casts such a wide net. Where, exactly, should you start?
When it came time for Saudi distributor and manufacturer Binzagr to implement HighJump™ Warehouse Advantage WMS, the business had to proceed with caution.
Binzagr has 36 sites spread across 21 locations throughout Saudi Arabia with four supply chains – food, non-food, cold and auto – and partners with prominent brands like Kraft, Tyson Foods, Hershey’s, Dunlop Tires and Unilever. It moves 700,000-800,000 cartons per day across that network. All of the products it handles start in the flagship location in Jeddah, along the Red Sea coast, and are distributed to different locations from there. The scale of the operation means any disruption in business could have a significant financial impact and damage critical relationships with suppliers and customers.
HighJump announced today that retail distributor Diversified Distribution Systems (DDS) is using HighJump warehouse management system (WMS) in conjunction with its SAP ERP system rollout.
DDS, which will run the HighJump WMS at five distribution centers, designs custom supply programs for retailers with a focus on replenishable products.
