Pharmaceutical win for Four Soft

Pharmaceutical distributor Polar Speed Distribution has chosen Four Soft’s 4S eLog system to improve the management of its UK temperature-controlled warehouses.

Polar Speed required a real-time, barcode scanning WMS solution to control its sites, and will use the software to improve warehouse traceability and location management for each stage of its warehousing function.

Polar Speed requested further features including extensive batch traceability, quarantining functionality along with real-time interfaces to both SAP and Sage to improve customer relations and speed up processing orders.

Richard Holmes, general manager, Polar Speed, said: “After an extensive tender process which began with ten WMS suppliers, we selected Four Soft as our strategic warehousing IT partner as we felt their understanding of our business processes and the solution they proposed was the best fit for our requirements. Four Soft brings the right depth and mix of experience across logistics and IT necessary for us to improve business controls and deliver added value to our customers.”

4S eLog covers all aspects of warehouse management including multiple sites and multiple clients being managed from within a single environment. It has full RF capabilities and offers web visibility to clients, their customers and their suppliers. It also features optional automated inbound and outbound processing and workflow management.

The contract will be serviced through Four Soft’s UK subsidiary Four Soft UK Ltd.
