Johnston Logistics UK has selected Snapfulfil warehouse management system (WMS) to help deliver its next stage of growth. The warehousing, logistics and fulfilment specialist handles over 400,000 pallets every year.
"Our clients need to know their materials, goods and customer orders are always in the right place at the right time" said Rob McIndoe, Director of Johnston Logistics. "Keen to innovate, we needed a system which would easily integrate with clients and deliver real-time tracking. Snapfulfil was the clear choice."
Snapfulfil is a flexible cloud-based WMS which is quick and simple to install. Users pay no upfront fees and all the necessary hardware, software, training and updates are included in a single monthly subscription.
Johnston Logistics UK provides logistics for businesses ranging from leading supermarkets to ambitious start-ups. From its BRC AA grade facility in Snetterton, Norfolk, it handles over 1,000,000 transactions each year for businesses in sectors including alcohol, clothing and manufacturing.
The company conducted a thorough review of options before selecting Snapfulfil, based on its ease of implementation, high level functionality and value for money.
Marcel Larose, Johnston Logistics UK's IT Manager, said: "Working with household names and independent businesses alike, we needed a system that would further improve our efficiency and satisfy all our clients. It was great to find a solution right here in the UK, delivering exactly what we needed."
Working closely with Johnston Logistics UK, Snapfulfil engineers were able to get the new system up and running in just a matter of weeks. Since implementation, Johnston Logistics UK has already been able to make cost savings, including reducing re-programming costs.
Snapfulfil Project Manager, Sarah Hill, said: "One of Snapfulfil's key strengths is its flexibility. Many traditional WMS's are expensive and time-consuming to reconfigure. Our software has been specifically designed to adapt to changing customer requirements."
With Snapfulfil powering its warehousing management system, Johnston Logistics UK has now launched a new initiative - Easy Switch – aimed at helping clients move away from hard-to-manage or poorly-delivered logistics. With the more flexible Snapfulful system they can begin delivering new customers' logistics in a matter of days.
Rob McIndoe added: "Our ambition is to lead UK logistics from the front and help our clients grow through smooth an efficient logistics. Snapfulfil and Easy Switch are simply the latest examples of how we're making that goal a reality."
