Fast-Moving Consumer Goods
Patleys Johannesburg (Crown Mines) stock take and go-live took place at the beginning of October 2013. Patleys achieved their daily sales targets from day one which was great as they were moving into their peak period. During the second day of go-live, >38500 cases were picked and checked out into the dispatch cages.
With the huge volumes of stock continually moving in the warehouse, the benefits to Patleys are:
- Lot control
- Expiry date control
- Accurate scanner based picking
- Dedicated pick face bin locations which are replenished throughout the day
- Checkout audit of picked stock into route cages
- Load planning and management of deliveries
- Performance management using KPI stats
Zelda Jacobs (Patleys IT Manager) had to say about the implementation and the DATASCOPE WMS in general.
“It was an absolute pleasure doing the WMS implementation with DATASCOPE . The level of expertise and commitment from the DATASCOPE team is indeed of the highest standard. The entire process of implementation, from the first requirements meeting up to, and after, go live was well driven by the project team and ensured, in what I believe, was a very smooth go live for such a dramatic change in an organization such as Patleys. “Thank you to DATASCOPE for ensuring a smooth WMS implementation with minimal business disruption and ensuring Patleys continued service delivery to customers.”
