Sed El Bauchrieh, Lebanon (PressExposure) May 17, 2008 -- TNT Fashion Logistics is the LSP for FILA Europe and their two hundred thousand square meter warehouse facility in Rosendaal acts primarily as a Distribution Centre and caters all their outlets in the European Union. With a warehouse of this size and a market that covers a continent, the integration between the ERP and WM was critical.
Four interfaces were required:
1. PO/Returns Download
2. Pick Ticket Download
3. Stock Movements Upload
4. Invoice Upload.
A successful synergy between systems is essential to such a large size operation as there is little room for interface delays or errors. SNS has a long expertise in merging different systems. The tool used to implement this integration was Boomi, a highly user friendly integration tool.
"With the size of our warehouse and the daily volumes in and out, it was important for us to develop reliable interfaces between our ERP and Warehouse Management System" declared Mr. Happy Weed, IT Manager at TNT Fashion Logistics in Holland. "Because of previous experiences with SNS' technical consultants, we knew that they were the team to work with. The speed of development and the high quality coding were mission critical and SNS consultants lived up to their tasks and more".
"The fashion industry is one of the most complicated industries when it comes to supply chain management" said Mario Ghosn, General Manager of SNS. "And with the size of the Distribution Centre in Rosendaal, the challenge was even greater. Our technical consultants are experts in the integration tools but also in understanding customer requirements and translating them into efficient and reliable code."
