BWG Foods has chosen to use Accord Voice technology from BCP (Business Computer Projects).
BWG Foods is an Irish wholesale and retail company and has invested pound;250,000 in BCP’s Voice Directed Warehouse Management System (WMS).
Voice was initially implemented in BWG Foods’ Wholesale Division, where a new purpose built depot at North Road in Dublin provided the opportunity to deploy Voice WMS from the outset. The 52,000sq ft facility brought together Value Centre Cash and Carry and BWG Foodservice in the same building to deliver synergies for the two divisions and provide both walk-in and delivered capabilities for customers.
Adrienne McDonnell, IT project manager for the implementation at BWG Foods, said: “Warehouse utilisation is excellent. The system helps us utilise the warehouse space in the most efficient and effective manner. We know immediately when a picking slot needs replenishment and exactly where that replenishment should come from so we can optimise operations.”
BWG Foods has rolled out the same Accord Voice WMS solution at its retail distribution centre in Walkinstown following the success at its North Road site. It is also now looking to take advantage of other functionality available with the system at both facilities.
