Four Soft (4S), a global leader offering software solutions for transportation and logistics, has recently signed a contract with Calderhead Refrigerated Transport, UK, to implement its warehouse management system - 4S eLog, in Calderheads temperature controlled warehousing operation.
The UK based company provides temperature controlled warehousing and transport solutions to a range of food manufacturers handling both raw materials and finished goods on behalf of their customers from their base in Redditch.
Calderhead required a modern warehouse management solution that would be able to rotate stock according to manufactured and expiration dates, a system able to automatically calculate their storage and handling charges (billing) and provide their customers with web access to their own stock levels along with being able to place orders electronically.
Mark Blackburn, General Manager of Calderhead commented, We needed a WMS system which would expand our service offering to customers and provide a solid base on which the business can grow. We also intend to use the system as a marketing tool to attract new business and retain existing customers. After evaluating a number of solutions we selected 4S eLog as it matched our requirements off the shelf and their hosted software as service option gives us ultimate flexibility.
Dave Pickburn, Senior Vice President, Four Soft Europe commented, We pride ourselves on offering turn key solutions for customers and welcome Calderhead as the latest customer to require our hosted software as a service WMS delivery option. Having the solution hosted from our UK Data Centre has allowed Calderhead to concentrate on running their business by allowing Four Soft professionals to handle all other aspects of the implementation and on-going maintenance of their system.
4S eLog built on the modern technology platform - J2EE, covers all aspects of warehouse management including multiple warehouses and multiple clients to be managed from within a single environment. 4S eLog has full RF capabilities and offers web visibility to clients, their customers and their suppliers. With forecasting ability and extensive automation, 4S eLog will help manufacturing, distribution and 3PL companies move their products more efficiently through their warehouse facilities to their customers locations.
