First Line Software, a premier provider of software engineering, software enablement, and digital transformation advisory services to global clients, has signalled its serious intention to strengthen its existing presence in the UK logistics sector by joining UKWA (UK Warehousing Association) and AMHSA (Automated Material Handling Systems Association).
Headquartered in Boston, Cambridge (US), and with a network of offices spanning the world including Cirencester (UK), The Hague (NL), Brno (CZ), Moscow (RU) and Doreen, Victoria (AUS), First Line’s 650 technical experts leverage agile technological excellence to efficiently deliver complex projects in retail digitalisation, web content management & eCommerce, real-world data, machine learning and enterprise data management.
It has particular expertise in warehouse automation, and as an Implementation Partner of renowned German intralogistics systems integrator viastore, First Line Software provides the full cycle of implementation services for the viadat Warehouse Management System (WMS). Together with viastore, it has implemented many complex intralogistics projects to great acclaim, including a successful WMS customisation, integration, implementation and go-live of Liebherr’s tower crane plant in Germany. This challenging project was 100% remote due to the Covid pandemic, and enables the Liebherr plant to eliminate paperwork and streamline the unloading and temporary storage process.
In joining the influential UKWA trade association, First Line Software is seeking to promote its remote WMS implementation capabilities to customers in the UK, including distribution centre owners and operators, eCommerce retailers and third-party logistics providers. Its membership of AMHSA puts it amongst the established systems integrators and warehouse automation providers with whom it currently works, as well as those with whom it is yet to form a partnership.
Anastasia Novoseltseva – VP Marketing, First Line Software, commented: “We’re very excited to be joining UKWA and AMHSA, as it underlines our serious commitment to growing our footprint in the UK. We have great ambition for the region, as we are certain that operators of logistics businesses in the UK will see the opportunities we can offer them to enhance the effectiveness and profitability of their intralogistics operations.
“We are particularly interested in speaking to companies with complicated operations using multiple providers of software and hardware systems. Particularly in this time of the pandemic, we can show them a Covid-safe solution to integrate these legacy systems with WMS to show them tremendous gains in efficiency, visibility and accuracy.”
As well as joining these influential UK trade associations, First Line Software will be taking part in the forthcoming Supply Chain Conference 2021, which takes place online on 16th-17th June, as well as the Logistics Business Virtual Exhibition, scheduled for 20th-24th September
