The Co-operative Electrical’s 230,000 square foot Electrical warehousing and distribution operation has picked warehouse performance management system DeltaWMS with RF* to support its UK wide distribution service for E-commerce and store network.
James Holland, Managing Director of The Co-operative E stores and Electrical buying group said: “At a time when the biggest electrical retailers in the UK have performed poorly, we have increased both our profitability and market share.
“We have done this primarily down to outstanding prices, excellent customer service, and our rapid and very reliable delivery service. To ensure the continuation of the latter we needed a specialist warehouse management system that was dedicated to logistics performance and designed to support significant business growth. DeltaWMS ticks those boxes”.
David Butterfield, Head of Warehousing and Distribution for The Co-operative Electrical said: “The decision to deploy Delta followed a tender involving a number of major WMS businesses. We liked the ease of the Delta system, the quality of the people who would project manage its deployment and the team that would support it over time.”
A single DeltaWMS system will be networked across three sites, which handle customer orders generated by The Co-operative Electrical website and Co-operative stores, as well as managing third party distribution for other commercial customers. DeltaWMS will be integrated with the existing transport management, business and e-commerce systems.
“Our solutions allow warehouse operations to be continuously and measurably improved – boosting supply chain performance,” said Delta Software Operations Director Lance Bennett. “DeltaWMS graphical warehouse map and KPI dashboard manage and measure warehouse inventory movement in real-time to optimise productivity, delivering better business process performance for WMS users.”
