Crown National is the leading supplier of spices and other food ingredients in Southern Africa.
Crown National’s Cape Town Branch in Bolt Street, Montague Gardens, went live with DATASCOPE WMS on 19 October 2015. A successful stock take was held on the 17 & 18 October.
The DATASCOPE WMS solution includes purchase order receipting, zoned put-away, replenishment from bulk bins into pickface (fine pick) bins, sales order release and picking for specific routes and customers by delivery day, the management of checkout and load planning, etc. A detailed cycle counting and stock taking module is standard in the system. Management KPI dashboards drive efficiency improvements.
Crown is using the new SYSPRO 7 In Release functionality which is working very well in their business. The Sales Team manage the stock reservations per customer order and the warehouse can only release pick slips based on the quantity in the reserve quantity field. Sales are therefore in control of stock allocations and it is not left up to the operations team to decide. As the new system settles down, we wish Crown all the best for the remainder of their peak period.
