DeltaWMS has gone live with its market leading DeltaBOND excise bonded warehouse management system for Gloucestershire-based Old Cider Mill Bond, within one month from receipt of order – reinforcing its reputation for speed of deployment as well as its keen pricing, and developing its dominance of this WMS market segment. Old Cider Mill Bond, an 80,000-case fully bonded operation with wine and spirits business customers worldwide switched to DeltaBOND when its incumbent WMS supplier “wanted to charge us a ridiculous sum to upgrade their software and could no longer maintain the system we had originally purchased from them” explains stock control and administration manager Antony St John Smith.
“DeltaBOND is a better and easier system to operate. It was like switching from a Fiat Punto to a Rolls Royce” Antony St John Smith adds.
The DeltaBOND excise bonded warehouse system
DeltaBOND provides the administrative control required to operate an HMR&C (Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs) excise bonded warehouse, and is already used by many leading bonded operations in the UK. DeltaBOND is fully compliant with HMR&C Notice 197 for the operation of bonded alcohol and tobacco warehouses, and removes the need to employ skilled administrative staff, with the automatic production of all HMR&C required documentation. Duty calculations are embedded in the system to ensure accuracy and compliance. DeltaBOND makes full use of available electronic links including EMCS (Excise Movement Control System) and ATWD (Alcohol and Tobacco Warehousing Declarations) to further reduce the administrative burden – and has an “unsurpassed audit trail that enables full stock traceability from point of receipt to point of dispatch, for every item that moves through the warehouse”, say Delta.
