"As a company that has enjoyed unprecedented growth throughout Australia and New Zealand and more recently in the Middle East and China, we recognized an inherent need to review our entire supply chain operations and replace our in-house Warehouse Management System (WMS), which was simply too antiquated to support our requirements, both in terms of our physical store locations and our online operations in particular which have expanded exponentially in recent months," explained Andrew Grant, general manager IT & Logistics at Jeanswest Corporation.
Jeanswest wanted a WMS that could facilitate better inventory management and stock accuracy; improve space utilization within the DC; support new business processes; and provide greater efficiency through streamlined operational processes and greater control of resources.
"We have been extremely satisfied with what the solution offers and the type of improvements it can deliver from a supply chain optimization perspective. What we have also been particularly impressed with is Manhattan's project management approach, both in terms of implementation and execution, which has been simply outstanding. The strategy they put in place from the pre-sales stage was extremely structured and the Manhattan team involved have been nothing but reliable and professional throughout our engagement with them. They have set the bar very high," Grant said.
Another capability of Manhattan SCALE, which Jeanswest has seen as particularly beneficial includes its ability to facilitate data exchange with suppliers from overseas. The company has not only seen impressive improvements in its receiving and put-away procedures when processing stock sourced from outside Australia, it has also found the ability to fully integrate with the systems of its domestic freight and online delivery partners a significant value-add from a productivity stand point.
