Indigo Software, a leading European warehousing and logistics software provider, announces that it has been awarded a contract by Greene King, the UK’s leading pub retailer and brewer, to implement Indigo WMS with voice picking across its network of UK distribution centres.

Old-Golden-Hen[4]The investment in Indigo WMS by Greene King is regarded as essential to enable larger volumes of product to be securely moved around the business and onto customers as efficiently as possible. The project to implement Indigo WMS will ensure better use of Greene King’s warehousing network and is expected to deliver a tangible return on investment across the supply chain.

Now the UK’s largest managed pub company, Greene King operates c.3100 pubs, employing 42,000 people. Following a strategic business process review involving a number of WMS vendors, Indigo WMS was selected by Greene King as the company’s preferred solution.
