Hallis Hudson Increase Warehouse Throughput By 20%
The implementation of a new eSmart® Warehouse data capture system into Lawson M3 enables Hallis Hudson to increase warehouse throughput by 20%, redeploy 4 data entry employees and extend order shipment deadline by 1 hour.
Hallis Hudson is a leading supplier of curtains, blinds and accessories for the Soft Furnishings industry. With a strong ‘Commitment to Excellence’ and customer service ethos, Hallis Hudson ships fulfilled orders for next day delivery.
One of the main challenges Hallis Hudson faced was the accuracy, speed and timeliness of data capture relating to shipments. Hallis Hudson and its customers needed to know the exact products and quantities placed into each box, for full traceability of the delivery. However, problems occurred due to the nature of the business and complexity of customer orders, where a single shipment often consisted of multiple packages packed in different warehouse zones.
