After careful consideration, the company selected Datex International as the best fit to implement the WMS solution that they were looking for. “Where others wanted to just dump some program in our laps with a manual on how to configure it, Datex wanted to learn everything possible about our business and processes to suggest the best way to make the software work to its fullest” explained Ross.
Datex will implement FootPrint® WMS 3PL, the latest Warehouse Management System developed in Microsoft .NET Technology. The system is designed to automate warehousing operations based on the use of RF terminals and system directed operations. The capabilities of the system include receiving, blind receiving, put-away, replenishment, picking, shipping, inventory control and order management among many others. Specifically for those companies in the Cold Storage Industry, the system has the ability to capture temperature at any time during the process, control lots and its movement, track pallets, provides owner transfer, and features full reporting and 3PL billing capabilities. The new .NET version of the system was developed with a friendlier user-interface, searching capabilities, easier ways to complete tasks and highly customizable views of the information. “Other enterprise software I have used before make me feel like I’m fighting the program to get something done or get something out of it, with FootPrint® I can actually work and get things done”.
“The thing I am still most impressed about working with Datex is the people. Communication is extremely easy and they are available at hours I would have never expected. Their software offering is fantastic; the user interface makes all their competitors look like they are living in the 80’s” said Ross.
