The company, a leader in the field of international transport, has chosen Reply’s Warehouse Management platform to manage the warehouse activities of their subsidiary company, Ancona.
SideUp™ Reply offers cost containment, extremely fast activation times, ease of use and extreme flexibility; the main features on offer influencing Geodis Wilson’s choice to select this innovative solution for their logistics and transport sector.
“We chose SideUp Reply™ because it guarantees shorter delivery times and, above all, flexibility in managing operating costs thanks to the ‘on demand’ supply model” explained Mauro Baldoni, IT Manager of Geodis Wilson Italia. “Another aspect that influenced our decision was the fact that you are able to use the system without it having to be installed at the premises of individual customers and the possibility it offers in terms of sharing information with our customers, via the internet. This particular feature allows us to offer an innovative service, providing our customers with added value”.
“SideUp Reply™ is the culmination of Reply’s extensive experience in the logistics sector and its expertise in developing systems and services designed to improve warehouse management using technology” stated Domenico Piantelli, Reply’s Senior Partner. “The ‘on demand’ model on which SideUp Reply™ is based, allows companies to have a flexible tool at their disposal; a tool which can be used to bring costs in line with the actual volume of business. Within the Italian context, it provides a unique service in terms of ‘software as a service’ for the supply chain”.
SideUp Reply™ is aimed, in particular, at companies which need to activate warehouse management solutions immediately or for limited periods, and restrict the initial investment. Different to traditional Warehouse Management systems, SideUp Reply™ is web-based and is directly accessible via the Internet. Apart from an initial cost linked to the activation of the service, customers are offered a pay-per-use service. This relates to actual usage and varies according to the number of users, the functions activated and the level of service required.
