Expanding distributor selects Proteus WMS
13 January 2014
Gardiner Bros & Co (Leathers) has chosen Proteus WMS to run its expanding warehouse distribution operation in Gloucestershire. The shoe distributor supplies in excess of 1.5 million items globally.
Gardiners decided to add an additional distribution centre to complement their existing facility in Gloucestershire. The management team also took the strategic decision to install a new WMS system to run both warehouse operations.
Logistics & IT Director Mark Holloway issued an ITT with LPC Consultants who assisted them in their selection process. After a thorough look at the WMS suppliers market a decision was made to utilise Proteus WMS, a contributing factor the understanding of Gardiners needs demonstrated by Proteus, and their track record of establishing long-term relationships with their clients.
The new system is RF Directed for multiple users, will control both warehouses, and will be interfaced to their own in house written ERP system. This will give Gardiners a seamless IT system from point of order through the warehouse to the issuing of the invoices.
