Logistics provider Johnston Logistics UK has invested further in its Warehouse Management System (WMS) to boost productivity and provide clients with even greater access to information.
The warehousing, logistics and fulfilment specialists, who handle over 320 million items every year, have chosen the latest version of the cloud-based Access Delta and Delta Bond software.
Rob McIndoe, Director of Johnston Logistics UK, comments: “We’re thrilled to have invested in the very latest Warehouse Management System. Not only does it improve our own processes but it speeds up integration with our client’s systems and provides them with the real-time data they need to stay firmly in the loop.”
A Warehouse Management System (WMS) consists of the software and supporting hardware used to manage stock movements. Its objective is to help goods and materials move from production, through storage and on to distribution; all in the most transparent and efficient manner. At the heart of this is accurately tracking every movement.
Johnston Logistics UK’s significant investment in the latest technology further enhances their clients’ access to data via a user-friendly dashboard. Amongst other functions, the online portal enables clients to create Stock Keeping Units (SKUs), add Advanced Shipping Notices (ASNs), view stock and track orders in real-time. Their clients are already seeing the benefits.
McIndoe continues: “End-to-end supply chain transparency is more critical than ever, so we’re thrilled our clients have already noticed the benefits of our new technology. With real-time reporting straight to their inboxes, and our IT and customer care teams always on hand to help, we’ve made monitoring and managing their logistics even easier.”
The newest version of Access WMS is designed to offer a high degree of compatibility with businesses’ existing stock control and tracking systems. As well as supporting dedicated methods of secure data transfer, the cloud-based software accepts uploaded data in almost any form and easily integrates with ecommerce systems including Shopify and WooCommerce.
McIndoe concludes: “Technology is a critical part of modern logistics and our investment reflects that. As well as helping us deliver high-efficient logistics, it’s vital we offer our clients the transparency they need to boost their own productivity and profit. It’s an investment both for now and for the future.”
