In line with the changed business scenarios and priorities, it was increasingly important for the parent-group to coordinate and manage their inventories and logistic operations. The groups logistic operations were manual intensive and hence prone to functional inefficiencies. As a result the parent-group decided to create a subsidiary logistics company to manage, distribute and support huge volumes of production. The logistics operations for two of the units/ warehouses of the company were identified for the pilot implementation.
- The Subsidiary felt the need to have a robust systems which could help them achieve the objective of optimizing their Order management and logistics processes
- The Subsidiary started operations using the SAP WMS system which was currently available with the parent-group
- However, to make available an independent system, capable of supporting the objectives of the business, the Subsidiary explored other ERP options and zeroed in on Oracle WMS
