With over 2.7 million direct customers and 4500 retail outlets, The Webb Group are one of the UK's largest suppliers of retail home entertainment products including games, DVDs, music and gifts. Working in conjunction with leading retail outlets such as Next, Wilkinsons and Grattan they provide an end to end retail solution, providing a suite of tailored marketing and fulfilment solutions designed to add value and maximise profit.
As part of their solution, the Webb Group offer a complete digital and multi-channel e commerce platform. Operating state-of-the-art e-commerce distribution systems they handle over 2 million dispatches a month, either direct to customer or to retail stores, across thousands of different product lines.
Mike Hardy, Managing Director of The Webb Group commented: "As part of our commitment to supporting our end users, we continually work towards adapting and improving their systems with respect to management of our distribution operations. We need to ensure 100% accuracy and transparency to ensure we meet all our customers specific requirements".
Working in conjunction with leading mobile computing manufacturer Belgravium, the Webb Group recently implemented a real time mobile computing solution across their Bradford warehouse facility. Utilising a real time network and the "Rugged by Design" Boston 8500 handheld and Monaco 7100 vehicle mounted terminals, the solution works in conjunction with the goods in, bulk stores and pick face replenishment operations to secure fast, reliable and accurate data capture for increased traceability.
In addition, Belgravium also supplied and installed a complete and durable range of racking labels and floor tags. The labelling solution was developed to work in conjunction with The Webb Groups warehouse management system and complement Belgravium's real-time solution by facilitating the clear identification of stock locations.
Mike Hardy continued: "We are very excited by the potential of Belgravium's real-time solution. The additional capabilities will provide us with complete control and transparency of our operation which in turn will continue to drive our commitment to delivering a truly first class service and product to our customer base."
