After the recent opening of our new Depot 2 unit at Stakehill Industrial Estate, we have introduced a new SaaS/Cloud Warehouse Management System (WMS). Snapfulfil will be used to manage 200,000 sq ft of warehousing space across our two Stakehill sites – a 90,000 sq ft warehouse attached to the Comfy Quilts’ manufacturing plant and a new, 110,000 sq ft facility nearby.
Snapfulfil is fully integrated with our SAGE system to provide complete visibility to raw materials, production and sales orders and finished goods inventories, streamlining the flow of materials and products in line with demand. Across the two sites, we will have 55 Snapfulfil users.
Logistics Manager, Mark Farrell says: “Our SAGE system could just about cope when we only had the one warehouse but we knew that it wouldn’t work across two sites. Snapfulfil offered the functionality we needed and the flexibility for us to license the software and buy the hardware.
“As well as Tier 1 functionality, we also needed a resilient platform to guarantee the performance and availability of the system – Snapfulfil’s SaaS model means that our WMS is hosted in a Tier 1 data centre which few businesses could justify using themselves. The centralised location of the application means that things like routine back-ups, upgrades, admin and maintenance are all taken care of by Snapfulfil, allowing us to focus on our core business.”
“Their business model also means that they have a vested interest in making sure the system performs every day which makes them a partner, rather than a vendor.”
