Farm-to-table logistics

25 May 2020

Sustainable online supermarket Farmdrop has signed up to a three year SaaS (Software as a Service) contract with SnapFulfil.

With a mission to fix the food chain, the London-based company has moved to optimise its warehousing and distribution efficiencies – and chose cloud-based SnapFulfil WMS because of its flexibility, functionality and configurability.

Established eight years ago by former stockbroker Ben Pugh, Farmdrop required a smart and adaptable WMS solution that could help meet its ambitious growth plans, while maintaining the slick and personal delivery experience its customers expect.

The ‘farm-to-table’ fresh foods company has begun proceedings with 15 users and plans to double its number of licences within the next six months.

Fern Wake, COO at Farmdrop, explains: “First and foremost, SnapFulfil brings us excellent stock management and inventory control, because our current in-house system is not really geared up for facilitating more than one product per location. However, with SnapFulfil we now have a system to manage dynamic locations and a real-time handle on batch control.

“SnapFulfil demonstrated proper understanding of our business during the procurement process and gave us a relevant, operational solution, rather than a sales-focused pitch. Their project management team even did some night shifts with us to fully comprehend our processes and that is certainly above and beyond the call of duty.”
