Diversified Distribution Systems Begins HighJump WMS Rollout
Distributor for retailers will deploy new WMS at five distribution centers as part of IT overhaul
MINNEAPOLIS (April 21, 2017) – HighJump, a global provider of supply chain network solutions, announced today that retail distributor Diversified Distribution Systems (DDS) is now using HighJump warehouse management system (WMS) in conjunction with its SAP ERP system rollout. DDS, which will run the HighJump WMS at five distribution centers, designs custom supply programs for retailers with a focus on replenishable products.
DDS’ Reno, Nevada, location – which primarily ships to West Coast customers – was the first site to go live, followed by the Greenville, South Carolina, and Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, locations. The company will continue rolling out the solution at other distribution centers in 2017 as it revamps its enterprise IT infrastructure. That project includes replacing its old ERP with SAP, a system that seamlessly integrates with HighJump WMS.
“As a large distributor, the complicated nature of our business operations made this a challenging project,” said Lina Shurslep, CIO of DDS. “HighJump showed tremendous attention to detail throughout this process. We and our clients are already seeing the benefits of HighJump’s highly adaptable warehouse management system, which allows our own team to execute changes to meet the evolving needs of our customers.”
A key part of DDS’ mission is to meet the precise needs of every client. Founded in 1985, the business warehouses and distributes full case and pick and pack supplies of both a generic and proprietary nature, depending on the customer’s preferences.
“The scale and complexity of this deployment proves that HighJump WMS will help businesses of any size, in any industry, be successful,” said Chad Collins, president at HighJump. “I’m proud of the fact that we were able to deliver on all promises as DDS makes the technological investments necessary to better serve its customers. I know this is just the beginning of a long, productive partnership.”
In almost every industry, buyers are becoming more fickle, and more demanding. For logistics executives, effectively meeting buyer needs has become a relentless quest for speed and agility. Traditional supply chain solutions – siloed, complex and hard-to-implement – no longer suffice, as competitors find ways to deliver goods faster and more profitably.
In today’s “now” economy, HighJump helps you stay agile, with adaptable, connected solutions that harness the power of your trading partner community. From the Distribution Center to the storefront, from the desktop to the driver’s cab, we can help you achieve new levels of supply chain responsiveness, performance and profitability.
HighJump’s suite of warehouse management, business integration, transportation management and retail/DSD solutions form a complete, powerful and adaptable platform that allow you to drive growth, customer satisfaction and revenue. HighJump: supply chain accelerated.
