International warehouse management system specialist Indigo Software has partnered with soft contact lens manufacturer CooperVision to implement its a WMS at its Kent bottled solutions production facilities.
CooperVision has chosen Indigo WMS to streamline and improve component issuing and traceability processes inside its Ashford manufacturing complex, and distribution centre at Sevington.
The facility’s focus is on manufacturing bottled solutions for contact lenses.
Indigo WMS will be integrated with CooperVision’s existing ERP system, giving the company a fully mobile, real-time supply chain management system, with advanced warehouse management capabilities.
Once implemented, Indigo WMS will automate pre- and post-production warehouse management, taking care of every warehouse process.
Shane Cowley, Logistics and Site Manager at CooperVision said: “We are currently using a paper-based system to manage the warehouse through our ERP solution and it doesn’t have the mobile capabilities or lot traceability functionality that we need. Our warehouse employs a large workforce and bringing in Indigo WMS will significantly improve efficiency and productivity,”
Colin Hough, Director of Client Sales EMEA & Americas at Indigo Software said: “Introducing automation with Indigo WMS will deliver immediate benefits to CooperVision, they will improve the working environment and remove the need to employ additional workers for busy periods because the technology can absorb the impact of extra orders very smoothly.
