Clearwater, FL (February 24, 2015) Supply chain software developer Datex recently announced that Datex FootPrint® WMS has been successfully implemented in three Crane Worldwide Logistics (CWL) facilities within four months’ time as part of a fast tracked process. To help streamline the implementation process, CWL used the “one stop shop” option and purchased mobile devices from Datex as well as supply chain software and professional services including integrations and Datex EDI Solutions. As part of the hardware service, Datex pre-loaded, configured and tested the warehouse management software on all the devices. By reducing the number of technology solution providers and working closely with Datex, CWL was able to streamline the implementation process and go live with the new warehouse management software solution in multiple warehouses quickly.
Crane Worldwide Logistics is a large scale multinational third party logistics provider that services industries such as aerospace, automotive, energy, healthcare, high tech, tradeshows, retail, manufacturing and telecom. In providing 3PL services to a variety of industries, CWL needed supply chain software flexible enough to be integrated into their multimodal value solutions and configured to meet the different needs of its individual clients. In addition, Datex WMS software needed to have the capability to be integrated to other systems including material handling systems and shipping carriers.
Datex FootPrint® WMS provides real time alerts of status changes to a wide variety of conditions, operational processes and more. These notifications help provide CWL team members with current information with which to react to dynamic business conditions and make critical decisions. In using the Datex warehouse management solution, CWL now receives added benefits including the ability to create customized reports, a new two-step putaway for use with the carousel; crossdocking; and enhanced consolidation and order management functionality.
“The Crane Worldwide Logistics team worked hand in hand with Datex project implementation experts and was essential to fast tracking the implementation of the warehouse management software solution in these three facilities. We appreciate the partnership and look forward to a long successful relationship with CWL” said Derek Armanious, Vice President of Client Services.
“This partnership has allowed Crane Worldwide to successfully deliver order management solutions,” said Keith Winters, Chief Operating Officer of Crane Worldwide Logistics. “Datex has provided us with the tools to continue our reputation in providing high-touch, high-value supply chain solutions.”
