Carson-Dellosa Automates With Infor10 Distribution ExpressSource: Infor
To automate critical business functions such as accounting, sales orders, purchase orders, inventory, and more, Carson-Dellosa began by selecting Infor10™ Distribution Express (FACTS). Earnest & Associates (E&A), an Infor business partner that has served as a critical participant in Carson-Dellosa's implementation process, installed and set up the application.
In time, Carson-Dellosa had grown to nearly 100 active Distribution Express end-users and was readying a new 130,000-square-foot distribution facility to accommodate future growth. As the company was preparing its move into the new building, Richard Lugo, vice president of Operations, and Juan Cano, vice president of Information Technology, began leading a team to evaluate systems to help the company maximize its use of the new facility. Specifically, Carson-Dellosa was interested in learning how a warehouse management system (WMS) might help improve throughput, efficiency, and accuracy across the entire organization.
After learning about the limitations of Carson-Dellosa's homegrown WMS and the merits of an integrated WMS solution from an Infor representative, Carson-Dellosa looked at Distribution Express Warehouse Management. This application uses hand-held bar-code scanners to improve warehouse efficiency, streamline materials handling processes, and improve accuracy.
