Potter Group Logistics has selected the Calidus warehouse management system from OBS Logistics to help manage its five national distribution centres.
The WMS will be used at Ripon, Selby, Droitwich, Knowsley and Ely. It will provide over-the-web interfacing with customers and EDI links for paperless and automatic ordering. The group is also evaluating the use of the system’s wireless barcode scanning feature with Motorola handheld scanners.
“Calidus WMS offers the features and functionalities we need,” said Ken Watson, finance director and head of IT.
“The barcode scanning option, for example, is an out-of-the-box standard feature that is integrated with the WMS and we are giving it careful consideration. It is this fully featured integration that stands out the most.”
“Over the years our system has proved its worth, but with the rate of change we see in the market today, it is clear we will benefit from having the support of a much larger company handling our WMS requirements,” said Watson.
