With In-DEX WMS in place, Annaghmore has completely transformed its warehouse operations.
With new zoning logic and racking systems, Annaghmore has been able to completely overhaul both how products are stored and how picking jobs are routed to employees. This has boosted fulfillment rates by 25%.
Annaghmore also realized improvements in order picking that improved delivery accuracy, resulting in happier customers and fewer orders being returned.
OpenEdge plays a critical role in this, ensuring the stability and performance of In-DEX WMS. With a low cost of ownership, OpenEdge negates the need for full-time database support staff at Annaghmore sites. And the RDBMS open standard interface assures Annaghmore that connections to its local and remote third-party, partner and customer systems are robust and secure.
“Progress OpenEdge RDBMS is a high-end product that provides the level of stability, transactional throughput and resilience that we need for our customers,” said Joe O’Shea, Director, Principal Logistics Technologies. “And unlike Microsoft SQL and Oracle, it does not require constant attention from a DBA or IT resources. In other words it has a low cost of ownership.”
