Stephen Sanderson Transport has partnered with omnichannel order software specialist Utordo to implement its multi-channel order management technology.
Stephen Sanderson was looking for a system it could integrate with its existing Microlistics warehouse management system at its 100,000ft2 distribution centre in the Midlands. Its aim was to improve its fulfilment capability.
Without reconfiguring Stephen Sanderson’s existing WMS, the cloud-hosted Utordo middleware links the company’s warehouse management system with a company’s trading platforms and exports any relevant data relating to each online order to the WMS using secure flat file, XML or API formats so that stock levels and orders are synchronised in real time.
Ed Sanderson, Commercial Director at Stephen Sanderson said: “Our company’s success has been built on the storage and delivery of palletised loads, so we have had to adapt some of our working practices to meet the growing demand for online fulfilment services.
“Utordo is a simple package that has allowed us to integrate our Microlistics WMS with our e-commerce clients’ online stores such as well as any other internet marketplaces through which they trade, such as eBay and Amazon.”
