“IMHX is one of the most important events in the year for our business,” says Josh Makan, CEO of Worldwide Chain Stores (WCS), who are on stand UK12. “It gives us an opportunity to talk to a key target market for us and discuss the benefits of CSnx, our flagship WMS in combination with our latest modules available – the latest being cost-to-serve, a fully integratable module currently being used in Australia’s largest independent grocery retailer, Drakes.”
Tracking costs categorised by activities, rather than traditional cost categories, was imperative to Drakes, says Josh: “This activity-based costing has given Drakes the ability to identify non-value added activities, which they are undertaking, and implement process improvement. The success of this project means we’ve now developed a module that all our customers can benefit from.
“As previous visitors to IMHX we believe WCS products are an excellent fit for attendees from organisations within retail, grocery, wholesale, food services, distributors, general merchandise, pharmaceuticals, DIY and 3PLs. WCS can put businesses ahead of the curve with our best-in-breed, next generation WMS offering, that incorporates advanced functionalities including out of the box, with embedded labour, voice, stockless warehouse, consolidated picking for ecommerce, cost to serve and is available either on-premise or in the cloud. This event will be a great opportunity to provide valuable insight from existing customers on how our product can significantly support businesses today, and tomorrow.”
