Investment in robust warehouse management system delivers increased customer service and greater supply chain visibility
INDIANOPOLIS – Prime Distribution Services, An Ascent Global Logistics Company, announced today it has finalized the implementation of cloud-based HighJump Enterprise Warehouse Management System (WMS) to support the future needs of its clients in an ever-changing retail environment. As an industry-leading retail consolidation solution provider, Prime Distribution Services supports companies within various industry verticals including consumer packaged goods, dry and refrigerated food and household goods. Prime Distribution Services specializes in the consolidation and shipping of goods to national big-box retailers, managing the complex delivery requirements on behalf of its clients. Prime Distribution Services is currently utilizing the new HighJump technology at all five of its distribution facilities.
“We are proud to have upgraded our Warehouse Management System (WMS) to improve the level of service we provide to clients,” said William Vechiarella, President of Prime Distribution Services. “We have 2.5 million square feet of space that we operate with our own people and it’s important to us that we invest in the best technology to ensure we help clients exceed their retail customers’ expectations. By increasing our service levels, we allow our clients to focus solely on production without dedicating internal resources to distribution.”
The utilization of the new HighJump WMS will provide Prime Distribution Services with a state-of-the-art system to capture and monitor real-time inventory data leading to improved inventory accuracy, inventory control and lot control. Customers can learn more about the HighJump WMS at Prime’s upcoming Supplier Delivery Summit on Wednesday, August 30 in Bentonville, Arkansas.
“The customization and adaptability of the system is especially valuable for retail consolidation solution providers like ourselves because requirements vary between clients,” said William Goodgion, President of Ascent Global Logistics. “As consumer expectations rise, that pressure falls onto the shoulders of distribution service providers. Best-of-breed technology enables us to step up the level of service we provide, fostering a true partnership with our customers. It is one of the ways we are innovating in order to stay ahead of the curve and help our customers continue to reach new heights of logistics excellence.”
