Release ID: 4538
15th February, 2010: Four Soft (4S) (NSE: "FOURSOFT", BSE: 532521), a global leader offering software solutions for transportation and logistics, is pleased to announce that it has recently signed a contract with Len Lothian Ltd, to implement its warehouse management system - 4S eLog across its locations.
Family owned and operated company Len Lothian Ltd has been in the storage business for over 45 years offering 3PL logistics services to industry clients and self storage services to the general public from its five sites located over the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow.
In addition to traditional pallet storage, Len Lothian also provides archive storage and document management as one of its services. As the demand for this service has increased, real time visibility and tracking of items from pallet through to single policy documents, has become increasing difficult without a best of breed management system in place.
After reviewing several software vendors Four Soft’s WMS, 4S eLog, was selected due to its flexible nature, simple user interface and easy to use web login access for Len Lothian’s customers to book stock in, place orders and have instant access to KPI’s and stock levels from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.
4S eLog built on the modern technology platform - J2EE, covers all aspects of warehouse management including multiple warehouses and clients being managed from within a single database environment. 4S eLog has full RF capabilities and offers web visibility to clients, their customers and their suppliers. With KPI reporting, dashboard tools and extensive interfacing capabilities into business systems such as Sage, SAP, Microsoft and Oracle, 4S eLog will help manufacturing, distribution and 3PL companies move their products more efficiently through their warehouse facilities to their customers’ locations.
Douglas Lothian, Director, Len Lothian, commented, “Our previous warehouse system provided us with enough functionality for our current client base but we needed a WMS system which would expand our service offering and keep us ahead of our competition for years to come. After reviewing a number of suppliers we felt Four Soft understood what we were trying to achieve and being able to handle both document storage and traditional pallet storage on one platform is a huge advantage for us.”
Simon Shore, Vice President, European sales, Four Soft, commented, “We are really pleased to welcome Len Lothian as our latest WMS customer and are proud to see the rate at which our web centric WMS customer base continues to expand. With this implementation, Len Lothian will now have a powerful tool to support their expanding warehousing operations and be able to improve operational efficiency and visibility with the same resources in place”
