Colart Boosts Supply Chain Efficiency with Infor’s Best-in-Class Warehouse Management System
Infor WMS to be rolled out to distribution centers in US, France, UK and China
NEW YORK – March 3, 2020 – Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry, today announced that its partner SNS, a leading provider of supply chain consultancies and software implementation, has completed a state-of-the-art project at Colart, the leading art materials company in the world, which has gone live with Infor WMS (warehouse management system) in its newly built distribution center in Piscataway, New Jersey.
This demanding project was jointly led by SNS and Colart, and this groundbreaking implementation for the group will be followed by further roll-outs across Colart’s distribution centers in France, China, and the United Kingdom, making Infor WMS a truly global installation. Colart delivers products to more than 120 countries, ranging from artistic paints and brushes to paper and canvas. Its brand-new distribution center features very narrow aisles (VNAs), shelving, carton flow racks, and motorized conveyors, spanning over 17,000 pallet and bin locations, and is expected to fulfil more than 10,000 order lines per day.
The implementation of Infor WMS also brings seamless integration with the ERP system (Infor M3), as well as real-time integration with the conveyor systems. Infor WMS will also integrate with the carrier systems to communicate packaging information with serial shipping container code (SSCC) generated by the Infor WMS solution.
Colart significantly increased its supply chain and operational efficiency, and the improvements in accuracy were noticed immediately after the introduction of WMS. The Colart IT team emphasizes, “The dedication and professionalism of the SNS team are impressive. The team will go the extra mile, think outside the box to make sure it’s the best solution for the operations. This team along with the ground-breaking Infor solution contributed to make this go-live a huge success.”
Serge Abou Slaiby, SNS project manager, said: “I couldn’t be happier with what we have achieved. It is all worthwhile when we drive our client’s operations towards great results and supply chain fineness.”
