The contract, which includes design, implementation and support of a Cisco wireless infrastructure with mobile devices valued at over £1.5m, is being deployed in partnership with Computacenter and is an important element of Morrisons' ongoing investment into upgrading IT capabilities across the organisation.
The wireless network will enable Morrisons' predominantly paperbased processes and information systems to become more accurate and automated, paving the way for future operational improvements.
Morrisons has already invested £6m in a project with Zetes to introduce voice directed picking into all its warehouses. The latest project will enable its manufacturing centres to benefit from real time information once the company's Oracle eBiz ERP system is introduced.
Zetes supplied professional services consultancy to design the Cisco wireless network and oversee implementation. The company is also supplying and supporting all the mobile devices required within Morrisons' manufacturing estate including advanced handheld terminals with keyboards specially customised for Morrisons, Zetes' own IND 2475 truck mounted terminals, extended range scanners and label printers.
