Full inventory management

05 March 2014

Nutritional supplements firm ASEA has selected the Snapfulfil WMS for a manufacturing and fulfillment centre in the United States.

ASEA produces for daily use and markets its products through a global network marketing model. The company’s growth, increasing product diversity, and desire to bring manufacturing and fulfillment under one roof were key drivers in its search for a WMS system they could implement quickly.

"We have been growing rapidly including expansion into new international markets,” said senior VP of global operations Scott Aldred.

"In 2013 we moved into a new facility to bring order fulfillment in house from a previous 3PL to combine with our world class manufacturing operations.

"We needed a WMS that could support our rapid growth, sustain a low cost of ownership, and support both our manufacturing raw material inventory as well as finished good inventory for order fulfillment as part of our new strategic direction.  

"Inventory traceability from raw materials to finished goods to shipment to our end customer is critical in our industry and it is imperative we have systems in place to provide for this level of information and control.”

The Snapfulfil WMS will assist ASEA with managing their raw materials for production orders, inventory control and order fulfillment for finished goods with full traceability to satisfy their process requirements.

With a cloud-based WMS, Snapfulfil maintains and provides the application and hardware infrastructure. ASEA will access the WMS via a web browser and gain the functional benefits and speed-to-value of a Tier 1 WMS without the capital expense, hardware costs or IT resources typically needed to support an on-premise system.

"Because of our speed-to-value and low cost of ownership, more companies are choosing Snapfulfil WMS to support strategic distribution initiatives,” said Snapfulfil commercial director Gavin Clark. "Our highly adaptable WMS supports high-volume, with a simple, easy-to-use interface that allows companies to ramp up quickly and cost effectively."
