RedPrairie Corporation , a global leader in supply chain technology solutions that enable business process transformation, has announced a strategic alliance with Microsoft Corp. to provide integrated Warehouse and Transportation Management solutions with Microsoft Dynamics GP, and other Business Management solutions.
The relationship extends beyond joint marketing efforts, with RedPrairie developing a communications standard to Microsoft’s eConnect communication layer. This provides a tightly integrated solution set that offers a highly adaptable ERP system enabled with best-of-breed warehouse and transportation management functionality. The two companies are building from successful ERP/WMS deployments at Arthur Schuman, a wholesale distributor of Italian Cheeses, and Lifetime Brands, a manufacturer and distributor of kitchen wares. Lifetime Brands has utilized this joint solution set to support paperless processing and the value-added service of kitting. Additionally, they have realised reduced labour and distribution costs, while increasing inventory accuracy, throughput and volumes.
According to Craig Phillips, Senior Vice President of Distribution at Lifetime Brands, “The system we are running now enables us to operate much more efficiently, and has generated tremendous cost savings in operations and labour. Our distribution expenses have dropped since the implementation, and we anticipate that to continue over the next several years.”
Comments John Jazwiec, RedPrairie Company Leader, “We are proud to offer our fully featured Warehouse and Transportation Management Solutions with Microsoft Dynamics GP. This is a great alternative for mid and large tier companies who choose Microsoft technology to gain best of breed WMS and TMS capabilities that are fully integrated with their business management solution.”
