Montreal, Quebec-based TECSYS, a supply-chain management software company, announced last week that Wagner Equipment Co., a major Caterpillar dealer based in Denver, Co., selected TECSYS’ EliteSeries Warehouse Management System for IBM iSeries to manage its growing logistics operations of 31 facilities including distribution centers and outlets in three states.
Wagner is one of the largest Caterpillar dealers and the exclusive provider of Caterpillar products and services in Colorado, New Mexico and far-west Texas. The company needed to move away from its labor-intensive logistics operations and to acquire a warehouse management system compatible with the Caterpillar dealer environment. It also needed a system that provides clear visibility across the enterprise and supports its vital customer services operations in real time.
“With TECSYS, Wagner management will be in control of the entire logistics process, inbound and outbound, and TECSYS’ products will be at the center of all of it,” said Brien Borden, parts systems and logistics manager at Wagner Equipment. We are excited about this initiative, we will have our ROI within one year and a half.”
TECSYS’ EliteSeries WMS for IBM iSeries, in addition to its vast warehouse management system functionality, includes advanced kitting with multi-level bills of materials and work orders, enhanced pallet and load building, wave picking, as well as TMS courier integration for major providers such as UPS and FedEx. The system offers a browser-based user interface, new queries on key reporting indicators using iTopia, TECSYS’ tool for transforming data into knowledge, proof-of-delivery applications, Web-based order life cycle tracking and tracing, a flexible third-party billing component and versatile activity-based costing.
