Titan Solutions, which provides supply chain management solutions including 3PL, 4PL, freight services, warehouse and fulfilment, inventory optimization, and other services, required a WMS solution to support its aggressive international growth plans.
After an extensive market review of WMS options, Microlistics 3PL Express was selected as a scalable RF-enabled solution to grow in line with the company. The solution will be fully functional in weeks, as opposed to traditional WMS implementations which can take many months.
Titan Solutions needed a solution that would allow it to mobilise and empower internal resources, automate existing manual paper-based processing and enable a rapid deployment via an “express” implementation template. At the same time Titan Solutions would be continuing its customer growth strategy, which includes expansion into new sites and technologies.
Discussing the new WMS partnership, Michele Leigh, Supply Chain Program Manager at Titan Solutions, explains: “We needed a proven, Tier 1 rapidly-deployable WMS that could be implemented into our existing operation, without any costly or risky bespoke modifications. Microlistics’ proven express WMS deployment allows us to deliver the new system but also provides an agile and configurable platform that enables Titan to grow into new markets and continue to provide a first-class service to all our existing valued customers.”
Microlistics features in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for WMS and the express RF-based solution is designed to deliver faster ROI, whilst improving capacity and accuracy of warehouse operations. Based on a configurable rules-based engine it can cater for any type of product or operating process. For the 3PL market it has a number of key features including full audit trail, track and trace, intelligent discrete RF order picking, a configurable 3PL billing module that eliminates potential revenue leakage with value added services such as kitting and load management.
Mark Dawson, Managing Director at Microlistics, said “Our upgraded Express solution deployment capabilities can now be delivered in week. This, along with our global experience of implementing Tier-1 WMS to 3PLs, made us ideal long-term partners for Titan Solutions.
“A top priority for Michele and the Titan executive team was speed, flexibility and best practice, along with best-in-class functionality designed for the 3PL sector that will help them manage and grow their business.”
