Logistex has recently completed a full WMS upgrade for Jamie at Home’s Eastleigh Distribution Centre with its innovative LWS Reflex software. The enhanced system will initially manage Jamie at Home’s current manual process and bonded warehouse operation, and has the in-built flexibility and functionality to grow and manage an automated handling system as and when required.
One initial advantage is that the complete daily workload is immediately available for release to the mobile terminals, a task which formerly took most of the morning to collate – both more efficient and as a paperless system, more environmentally responsible.
Started in 2009, Jamie at Home is a direct sales business providing self-employed consultants with the opportunity and tools to earn commission by selling the Jme collection of homeware products. Consultants place orders from their customers on line using the Jamie at Home website. Orders are bulk-picked and dispatched to the customer who held the party.
The business has rapidly outgrown the original system and LWS Reflex will enable the company to keep pace with its rapid growth, handle peak demand periods and maintain fast, accurate shipments to its thousands of party plan consultants.
LWS Reflex’s WMS functionality is particularly suited to a fast-growing business such as Jamie at Home, providing a long-term warehouse management software package that will grow and adapt to the business in years to come, with no per user licence costs.
Kim Claxton from Jamie at Home commented; “Logistex’s experience, reputation and understanding of the business weighed heavily in their favour and gave us confidence that we could develop a positive long-term partnership. Their package provided the features we needed at a competitive price – and means we won’t need to look for any new software for years to come.”
