Clydebuilt Solutions Ltd has welcomed R T Page & Sons Ltd as a new customer and user of LocateIT WMS.
R T Page & Sons has been providing transport services since 1946 from its original site in Littlehampton. The company moved to new premises in 1989 and began to diversify its offerings to include warehousing, distribution and logistics and now works from a 4.5 acre site in Ford, West Sussex.
R T Page prides itself on being able to undertake any logistical problem, providing the right solution at an affordable price for its customer base. To facilitate the growth of its customer base the warehouse staff realised that to be able to continue providing the current high levels of service they would need to replace their existing warehouse management system in favour of a more modern solution with the right capabilities.
R T Page operates as a true 3rd party logistics provider, offering various value added services for different customers and, increasingly, supporting their individual needs. LocateIT WMS from Clydebuilt Solutions was chosen as the preferred warehouse management system due to the flexibility inbuilt within the system; enabling the company to continue to serve its existing clients while providing the platform for future growth, offering new clients a wide range of service opportunities.
As well as flexibility, the ability to organise inventory in a way to support its clients' business was paramount, as was the ability to effectively monitor inventory attributes (such as BBE). These features come as standard within LocateIT as does giving warehouse staff bomb proof track and trace ability with also the assurance that products are being stored and despatched in compliance with food and drug regulations.
R T Page and Clydebuilt Solutions have already started the implementation process of LocateIT WMS and associated RF process. Very shortly afterwards R T Page will start enjoying the benefits this will bring, including an increase in warehouse efficiency of at least 25%. The RF processes themselves are flexible as they are not written as emulator software; this means that R T Page can continue to work in partnership with its existing client base to offer truly bespoke services that continue to add value.
Interactive links enable R T Page to act as effective business partner to all its multinational clients, receiving information from its back-office systems and giving information back. Such links allow R T Pages customers to easily integrate into the LocateIT system, allowing a free flow of accurate information between the two, removing unnecessary paperwork and data entry. These links can be replicated and will be available to any of R T Pages customers to take advantage of as their system goes live.
