Fortna approaches WMS projects from a different point of view. We understand that a WMS is only as good as the process it automates. To drive real business results, you’ll need more than a system that meets requirements and performs to specification. We look beyond the software – to ensure the organization is following best practices. This includes connecting WMS into existing systems and automation platforms to get the desired operational results. This includes integrating and configuring the system with technologies like pick to light, backups, ERP, etc.
We’re agnostic. We’re 100% Client and business-focused.
We help round out the project so it’s a business, not just a software project. Unlike consultants or software vendors who focus on getting the software to work – and we bring to reality the promise of the software and achieving results that fulfill a business case.
Some recent client examples include:
Fortna reviewed the test cases for a large multimedia retailer and revised them to meet all business requirements and support the end user testing. Fortna was also responsible for implementing a more effective training program, improving standard operational procedures and exception handling, executing segregated operational readiness testing and creating a detailed lessons learned report for subsequent implementations of the warehouse management system at the company’s three additional distribution centers.
Fortna helped a department store retail chain design and implement a complete supply chain transformation, consolidating four distribution centers into two retrofitted sites. As a result, transit time from the DC to stores decreased by 30%, labor cost per unit improved by 27%, occupancy cost was reduced, capital utilization improved and inbound freight expenses were reduced 17%.
