Brightpoint, a global distributor of wireless devices and in providing customised logistic services to the wireless industry, has selected RedPrairie to provide both Warehouse Management System (WMS) and Transportation Management System (TMS) solutions as part of a global implementation schedule, likely starting in the EMEA region.
Our global growth requires a technology solution that adapts to meet our clients evolving needs, said Jac Currie, Brightpoints chief information officer. RedPrairies platform will help to enhance our competitive edge through improved supply chain visibility, innovation and functionality.
Taking account of the increasing complexities in Brightpoints global business and its customers' current and future requirements will be instrumental in dictating the pace at which the company applies the RedPrairie platform. RedPrairies productivity solutions have an industry reputation for helping companies support their business strategies for increasing revenue, reducing costs and creating a competitive advantage. Brightpoint selected the RedPrairie solution based on the competitive selection process, which included workshops, direct reference interaction, evaluation of technical architecture and the continuity of suppliers.
RedPrairie looks forward to helping Brightpoint meet their customers needs with the implementation of our WMS and TMS solutions, said Mike Mayoras, CEO of RedPrairie. These solutions help address needs for speed, accuracy, visibility and flexibility required to manage increasingly complex, global supply chains. We are pleased to be working alongside a company who places such a high premium on customer service.
Brightpoint Europe will continue to develop the Business Services Centre which will centralise specific business support (or back office) functions to be shared across all Brightpoint properties in the region and to execute its plan of consolidating its current warehouse facilities and creating strategically located hubs or Centres of Excellence. The Centres of Excellence and the addition of the RedPrairie platform will result in the efficiencies, enhancements and best practices necessary to meet the companys cost and effectiveness objectives in the region. This streamlines its operations in the region, which ultimately will allow vendors and customers to take costs out of their supply chain.
