Wolverine Warehousing & Distribution Limited (WWD) streamlined its business operations by upgrading its warehouse management software to Datex FootPrint®. By providing customers with technological advantages which save time and money when managing inventory and operations, WWD anticipates attracting new business. “Third party logistics providers are finding it advantageous to be tech savvy “explained Michael Armanious, President of Datex. “Their clients now insist on streamlined, efficient operations with clear visibility to inventory and reporting. These days, warehouse and distribution clients are focused on getting their inventory to market in the most cost effective way possible. Datex FootPrint® 3PL WMS software makes it easy to see their inventory, customize reports and simplify operations. Warehouse clients love the simplicity and savings and are looking for providers who offer this revolutionary technology.”
Wolverine Warehousing & Distribution Limited provides 3PL and distribution services throughout Canada and the United States from their warehouse operation in Windsor, Ontario. The combined 95,000 square feet of heated warehouse space with food grade warehousing, robust transportation infrastructure and partner arrangements with trucking and courier services provide clients with excellent quality low cost warehousing and distributions services. In selecting its WMS solution, WWD wanted real time visibility as well as seamless information and data flow across their business units. In order to increase customer satisfaction and retention, WWD needed accurate information and automated processes in order to reduce human error. WWD is now able to capture accessorial charges for value-added work performed for owners and track the total time spent on work for a particular client, order or account. This new increased visibility can result in potential increased revenue and operational efficiency.
“Footprint Software has created an environment of complete inventory accountability from the time of arrival to the time of departure. We have advanced our position in the 3PL market place by being extremely responsive to our customers’ needs. Our ability to heighten visibility of our customer’s products by barcode and web portal interfacing allows our customer base the luxury of a real time perpetual inventory” explained John LaMantia, Executive Director of Administration for Wolverine Warehousing & Distribution Limited.
