Challenge

With a newly opened warehouse facility in Swanscombe, North Kent approached Vigo Software for a Warehouse Management System (WMS) in order to transition away from spreadsheets which was how stock was currently being managed. Being an existing Vigo TMS customer, they also wanted an integrated solution.

The main objective of North Kent Distribution was to achieve full visibility for both themselves and their customers, as well as ease of invoicing and full track and trace capability.

Solution

Vigo Software provided North Kent Distribution with a comprehensive WMS which includes full visibility for customers and the company, ease of invoicing, and full track and trace capability with all stock barcoded and tracked by the warehouse scanning system. In addition, Vigo Software’s professional services and training helped ensure a swift and easy transition to the new WMS.

The feedback from North Kent Distribution has been overwhelmingly positive. The new WMS from Vigo Software has allowed for easier stock locating, movement, and picking. The handheld scanners have made stock tracking easier and faster, enabling increased efficiency and cost savings.

The implementation of the Vigo WMS has taken North Kent Distribution to the next level in their stock control and management process.

Results

“With our new building filling rapidly our new Warehouse Management System was installed January 2023″, says Gary Knight, Director of NK Distribution. “This gives our storage customers the benefit of an online portal with real time stock visibility, Barcoded pallets and pallet locations. Feedback from our team has been nothing but positive, the ease of stock locating, moving and picking, all done from handheld scanners, moving to the next level in our stock control.”

“A big thank you to Kevin Hosell from Vigo Software Ltd, our Warehouse Manager Tony and his team for hitting the ground running”
