As a result of dramatic increases in customer demand, IATCO, a leading grocer in Saudi Arabia, required a demand driven warehouse management solution that would allow it to execute, monitor and optimise complex inventory requirements, enabling end-to-end fulfilment from the point of order through to shipping.
SSA Global's WMS 4000 3.9 solution will provide IATCO with increased visibility across its network of warehouses and distribution centres, reducing out of stock situations, enhancing the utilisation of space across the network and enabling IATCO to exceed customer expectations.
"SSA WMS solution has a proven track record in the industries we serve; their strong commitment to retail and third party logistics industry (3PL), made it the ideal solution for our unique requirements," commented Hisham El-Sawi, Logistics and Customer Service manager at IATCO.
"We are confident that the delivery capabilities of the local support team and their in-depth understanding of our business requirements, practices and supply chain processes, will allow our business to be more agile and demand driven so that we can increase fill rates, reduce lead times, reduce supply chain costs and improve service," added Hisham.
Peter Prince, president EMEA at SSA Global added:
"IATCO has more than doubled its penetration of the small grocer sector in Saudi Arabia over the last four years, and the fact that it has chosen our warehouse management solution is further proof of the business benefits it can offer forward thinking organisations. This order strengthens our presence in the Middle East and we are confident that our local expertise will enable IATCO to reach its corporate goals and continue to develop its distribution business across Saudi Arabia."
