Cotswold sitting pretty with WMS renewal
Thursday December 15 2016
Online furniture retailer Cotswold Company has renewed with its WMS provider for an additional two years
The company originally implemented the Snapfulfil Cloud WMS in 2014, resulting in major efficiency improvements including a 50% improvement in goods in dock to stock times, a 46% reduction in item pick times and a 7.5% increase in inventory accuracy.
Snap-fulfil has also allowed The Cotswold Company to introduce regular cycle counting, removing the need for an annual shut down for stock taking.
Cotswold warehouse manager Paul Wilson said: "We're working faster and smarter with Snapfulfil which means that we're doing more with less resources - for example, we can now run goods in, replenishment and picks simultaneously. As a result of these efficiency and productivity improvements, head count has remained proportionately stable despite a threefold increase in volumes over the last five years and we've reduced our overtime bill by 30%."
The retailer will also take advantage of Snapfulfil's returns management functionality to support enhanced integration, customer service and supplier performance, as well as exploring the introduction of automation to further improve operational efficiency.
Cotswold and Snapfulfil won the Technology category at the Direct Commerce Association's Partnership of the Year Awards in 2015.
