Jamie at Home delivers
11 April 2013
A WMS upgrade from Logistex will help Jamie at Home keep pace with deliveries that are growing at a fast pace.
Logistex has installed its LWS Reflex warehouse management software for Jamie at Home's Eastleigh distribution centre.
Started in 2009, Jamie at Home is a direct sales business involving self-employed consultants who place orders from their customers online using the Jamie at Home website. Orders are bulk-picked and dispatched to the customer who held the party.
The business rapidly outgrew the original system and LWS Reflex will enable the company to keep pace with its rapid growth, handle peak demand periods and maintain fast, accurate shipments to its thousands of party plan consultants.
The enhanced system will manage Jamie at Home's current manual process and bonded warehouse operation, and has the in-built flexibility and functionality to grow and manage an automated handling system as and when required.
One initial advantage is that the complete daily workload is immediately available for release to the mobile terminals, a task which previously took most of the morning to collate - both more efficient and as a paperless system, more environmentally responsible.
LWS Reflex's WMS functionality is particularly suited to a fast-growing business such as Jamie at Home, providing a long-term warehouse management software package that will grow and adapt to the business in years to come, with no per user licence costs.
Kim Claxton from Jamie at Home says: "Logistex’s experience, reputation and understanding of the business weighed heavily in their favour and gave us confidence that we could develop a positive long-term partnership. Their package provided the features we needed at a competitive price – and means we won’t need to look for any new software for years to come.”
