American Metalcraft Inc., based in Chicago IL, made history as the first US Based DATASCOPE WMS site. AMC went live at the end of January 2017.
We were exceptionally pleased with the go-live and commitment from the staff at AMC as well as Business Technology Partners (DATASCOPE DSP in Chicago), which resulted in the site going live a day earlier than planned. On day three after go live the DC was back up to full volume.
Within weeks AMC’s DC was outperforming targets and exceeding previous year’s high targets. All weekly overtime has stopped as the warehouse is far more efficient.

Tom Jursich (AMC Project Manager) had this to say about the DATASCOPE implementation: “Our implementation exceeded all of my expectations, especially on go-live weekend. Leading up to that weekend, I had envisioned a huge task list with the team running around trying to get everything done all weekend. We actually spent most of Friday and Saturday waiting for the inventory count to be finished, and on Sunday morning the managers were already picking and packing live orders.”
At DATASCOPE we are proud to have AMC as a flag ship site and look forward to an exciting future together.
