SNS Assists Al-Yasra In The Launch Of Its New 3PL Operation
Dubai, 05/01/2008- SNS, a leading supply chain services provider, announced that Al-Yasra, a general services company and distributor of leading brands in Kuwait, has successfully implemented the Infor WMS application to launch its new 3PL business.
With a wide range of fast moving items, 700 to 800 pharmacies and clinics as delivery points, and 300 to 600 orders daily with 24-hour limit for delivery, Al Yasra needed a reliable warehouse management solution to enable it to successfully meet the challenging requirements of their storers’ fulfillment system. The solution also required a full integration with YIACO’s ERP system to allow for electronic document transfer and ensure data integrity.
SNS’ strong expertise in the IT solutions for warehousing enabled Al-Yasra to go live in a record time of two months with minimum operation down-time. With the implementation of the RF functionality, Al-Yasra was able to streamline its warehousing operation, accurately rotate its storer’s stock, and ensured real-time stock visibility. SNS also provided Al-Yasra with knowledge transfer not only in the context of the WMS application but also in terms of contract logistics best practices.
“SNS has shown great professionalism and strong commitment to achieving quality results in a limited time frame,” said Mr. Jay. “SNS supported us at every step of the project making the transition to the new system smooth and comfortable.”
“With the addition of Al-Yasra to our growing list of satisfied customers, SNS continues to solidify its position as a leading provider of IT solutions in the warehouse management field in the Gulf and Middle-East,”
