New Hosted Solution Delivers Knockout Blow to High Cost Warehouse Software Thursday 26 April 2007 PDF Print There is a new highly affordable way to have advanced pick pack and ship warehouse operations, according to the developers of snapfulfil. The new hosted system brings the benefits of big company performance and accuracy to the world of small business. It is generally accepted that using an advanced warehouse system delivers benefits such as 30% increase in efficiency, a significant improvement in order fulfilment times, whilst ensuring greater accuracy and enhanced customer service. However these systems have been the preserve of wealthier organisations up until now with price tags from £30,000 to £300,000 or more. snapfulfil is a new type of hosted service which changes all that, by charging a simple, monthly fee from just £190 per user for an all in one package. This service even includes installation of the advanced system itself, an on-site RF network and hand held RF terminals with integral bar code scanning. The package also includes system connectivity to the hosted environment which is fully resilient and secure. The snapfulfil system is also fast and easy to implement and can all be up and running in just 30 days. Creators Synergy Logistics have achieved all this by developing the new snapfulfil system as a hosted service, otherwise known as Software as a Service (SaaS). All the user requires is a PC and the availability of broadband. There is no actual software to install and maintain on site, as everything is delivered from a powerful data centre. For administrative and management users everything is accessed through a PC's standard web browser. This has the added benefits that the typical IT overhead of PC and server support, regular backups and software updates are eliminated. “We developed snapfulfil from the ground up to be an effective and affordable hosted service,” comments Mark Darley-Usmar of Synergy Logistics. “It is quite different from hosting an old style WMS, as snapfulfil uses advanced web services and data minimisation to deliver the sort of lightening fast response you would expect from a very expensive on site system, but with none of the purchasing and overhead costs that usually entails.” “I expect snapfulfil to be a revolution in distribution efficiency for smaller companies,” concludes Darley-Usmar. snapfulfil will be new to Internet World, 1st-3rd May 2007.
