Industries Retail

SACO has deployed Infor WMS (warehouse management system) with Infor ION and Loftware Labelling, a third-party solution, according to Infor. The Infor WMS is designed to optimize order processing and picking, improve put-away, and speed up the loading and validation procedures. It is fully linked with SACO’s SAP ERP platform using Infor ION. SNS, an Infor partner that specializes in supply chain consulting and software installation, was in charge of the project.

“We needed a robust and scalable warehouse management solution with the in-depth functionality to support large volumes or orders and a wide product range across our eight warehouses,” comments Ibrahim Mahmoud, Group CIO, SACO.

He added, “The advanced functionality in Infor WMS ensures consistency across our operations, supporting bills of materials, picking, put-aways and loading processes using unique codes and integrating seamlessly with our ERP platform, to drive efficiency across our business. In addition, the deployed enterprise integration platform and Infor WMS facilitates collaboration and visibility to ensure consistency and performance both within and beyond our operations.”

“As per regular feedback of SACO operations team, starting from assignment picking based on the distribution of users per warehouse, to enhanced loading with added validation to ensure correct pallets are assigned and loaded to the correct truck, the level of granularity and process refinement we are now able to achieve is hugely valuable. We’re looking forward to embracing a new period of growth underpinned by world class capabilities and expertise at our helm.”

“Our merger with SACO five years ago represented a huge milestone for MEDSCAN and we see the deployment of Infor WMS as the next big development in driving value for our customers,” comments Hussain Al Abdullah, general manager MEDSCAN. “The WMS deployment including the flexible integration capabilities will allow MEDSCAN to get new customers onboard quickly and smoothly. Infor WMS in particular is really impressive, providing dashboards and KPI insights in an intuitive and user-friendly format.”

“The scale of this deployment was huge, with additional challenges brought about by the integration requirements, and need to manage the project remotely because of the pandemic,” comments Mohammed Obaidah, director of services, SNS. “Having successfully delivered the solution on time and to budget, we’re delighted to be supporting one of KSA’s leading retail and wholesale companies in their quest to deliver best practice and drive performance.”

Following a merger in 2016, Infor WMS will support SACO’s warehouse operations, which are managed by its logistics services supplier MEDSCAN. MEDSCAN’s unique and integrated logistics solutions include the best personnel, procedures, and systems to move products more efficiently, and the retail and wholesale behemoth will use the Infor WMS gateway in particular to streamline financials and billing.

With eight warehouses, huge order volumes, and over 40,000 SKUs, SACO needed a solution to improve warehouse management performance. The retail and wholesale company needed to improve its picking processes as well as permit seamless interaction with its ERP platform to ensure a real-time view of operations at all times and speed decision-making.
