This implementation took place in the UAE where DSS has established a 3PL business to accommodate its customers. DSS is currently using SSA WM 1000 to manage their Less Than Container Load (LCL), Full Container Load (FCL) freight forwarding and 3PL businesses.
The changes applied by the SNS technical consultants have enabled the SSA Warehouse Management System to managing the freight forwarding business in a minimal development and implementation time, thus reinforcing inventory visibility, order accuracy and order cycle time.
“DSS is committed to offering the best to its customers. SNS’ reputation in the region was the main reason why we selected them to implement our Warehouse Management System”, says Mr. Balak Valakrishan Operations Manager at DSS. “Yet, we have remained highly impressed with SNS’ speed and quality of development and implementation. Though time was short, the transition to the new system was still very smooth”.
The DSS project is SNS’ first project following the SNS Rapid Implementation Methodology (SRIM) that enabled DSS to going live with maximum knowledge transfer in two-month time. The SRIM is characterized by a full analysis of the warehouse operation and the development of a standard operating procedures document based on the best practices available in the supply chain industry.
“The ability to supply our customer’s needs in no time is our forte. DSS was able to improve inventory control and can now easily manage complex inbound material flow as well as outbound distribution. The SRIM has proven to be effective and highly profitable to the customer, minimizing the project man days without losing any of the objectives”, says Nadim Klat, SNS senior consultant.
