DeltaWMS:Distribution warehouse management system with integrated RF technology will automate inventory control and optimise customer service
22 April 2008 – Evolution Power Tools, one of the world's fastest growing power tool brands with operations in the UK, France and the USA and a pioneer in the development of cutting technology for the steel and fabrication industries is installing a state-of-the-art warehouse management system to “Automate the company's inventory management and optimise its customer service” Evolution finance director Nicola Cook said today.
The DeltaWMS system is being integrated with Evolution's existing Sage Line 50 sales order processing software; and with new RF (radio frequency) terminals installed on the company's forklift truck fleet to automate picking and speed dispatch of Evolution's Professional Steel Line; building industry multipurpose steel-,aluminium- and wood-cutting machines; and home (DIY) machines, from its 36,000 square foot warehouse. Evolution home products include the 'EVO180 Xtreme', the 'EVO380 Raptor', and the 'RAGE' and 'FURY' series. All products are developed by the company, manufactured externally and shipped into Evolution's Distribution Centre in the UK, for worldwide distribution.
“Having real time, 24/7 knowledge of our warehouse inventory plus the ability to speed the distribution of Evolution cutting tools to our global export, independent and big-chain retail customers such as B&Q will support our plans for rapid, worldwide expansion” Nicola Cook adds. The company is targeting 20% per annum growth.
