Four innovative and forward thinking companies have got together to provide technologies that will aid in the orchestration of the supply chain, namely Imtech Logistics, Proteus Software, Psion and Varlink. The comprehensive partnership gives logistics and supply chain companies the ability to pull together all aspects of their supply chain and control the processes in the moving, managing, storing and shipping of stock.
Imtech ICT Logistics Software has been providing transport management solutions for over 15 years, whilst Proteus has over twenty years experience in supplying warehouse management systems. Both suites of software are functionally rich, are highly flexible and scalable, ensuring that the end-to-end solution fits all sizes of organisations from the small to medium enterprise through to major blue chip organisations.
Psion has an extensive range of Scanners and PDAs that can be used in the warehouse, and on the road. They have recently released their new EP10, which utilises GPS, POD and Mobile Phone technology in one single PDA. This can be used in the warehouse as a scanner, for InCab technology purposes, Proof of Delivery or in the field for Service Engineers.
Varlink’s comprehensive portfolio of mobile computing and data capture products includes Zebra and Brother Printers, (static and mobile). Stock is held for immediate despatch from their UK distribution centre allowing them to offer economical next business day delivery as a standard service.
Rob Gibney, UK Country Manager, Imtech Logistics comments, “We are delighted to be partnering with such well known branded companies. The partnership has given us the ability for all of us to offer a complete technology solution to companies operating in the Logistics industry. Almost all Logistics companies are under increasing pressure to achieve supply chain perfection in order to meet the ever growing demands of today’s consumer. Our combined solution gives operations professionals the tools to achieve year on year operational growth, lean inventory management, make bottom line cost savings, and sustain customer satisfaction throughout their supply chain.”
