RedPrairie , a consumer driven optimisation company, has announced that distribution and manufacturing company Access Business Group has selected RedPrairie’s Warehouse Management (WMS) and Workforce Management (WPM) solutions.
Access Business Group is part of the Alticor family of companies, which also includes Amway, Quixtar and Alticor. Access Business Group has close to 185,800 square metres of distribution space, processes over 15 million packages yearly and supports the number-one-rated online health and beauty shopping website, as rated by Internet Retailer magazine.
“We selected RedPrairie because their WMS, slotting, workforce management and parcel solutions are on a single integrated platform and share a common architecture,” said Darren Puskarich, director of distribution, Access Business Group.
“We like the fact that RedPrairie’s overall architecture was more enterprise-focused than other companies we evaluated, making it a better choice for a growing global company like ours.”
“Accelerating growth on a global scale is critical to Access Business Group and we believe our integrated technology platform and experience working with global companies will help them reach those goals,” said Mike Mayoras, CEO for RedPrairie.
Access Business Group has good talent and facilities to develop, make and distribute high-quality products worldwide, not only for Amway and Quixtar, but for other companies as well.
Access Business Group is a wholly owned subsidiary of Alticor. Access Business Group is supported by more than 3,000 employees worldwide.
Access Business Group and its affiliates operate state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, the People's Republic of China, Ada, Michigan and Buena Park, California, USA.
RedPrairie’s E2e solutions synchronise people and products throughout the customer buying cycle to ensure goods reach the right place at the right time.
At the point of sale, this means consumers have access to desired products and that the store is staffed with the right people to help them make their purchases.
In the production cycle, it means suppliers and manufacturers time and synchronise shipments and production based on demand signals from the retailer.
And in the back room of the store, it means having the least amount of inventory, solving the last metre problem of the retail supply chain.
