Ecommerce sites need the best automated warehouse systems to cope with demand
Birmingham, UK (PRWEB UK) 24 December 2012
Faster broadband and the freedom to browse the internet on more devices than ever before, has led to an unprecedented rise in demand for online shopping, providing a pre-Christmas boost to Midlands based Keymas Ltd, one of the UK’s leading providers of automated warehouse systems.
Established for over 25 years, with a firm foothold on the UK and global market, Keymas provides unique automated warehouse solutions that meet each company’s individual business needs and requirements, working with leading companies such as Argos, Field Packaging, LEC Refrigeration, to name but a few. Whether companies are looking for a warehouse automation company to take on a project from start to finish, or looking to improve an existing picking system to increase efficiency, Keymas will deliver the most efficient, cost effective and flexible solution.
Keymas Technical Director, Chris Barton explains more: “The rapid growth in ecommerce sales has had a significant impact on our business. Every year online sales increase and this year is no different. Already sales figures from the British Retail Consortium have reported a week by week increase in the number of pre-Christmas parcels delivered during December compared with the same time last year.
“It’s becoming increasingly important for ecommerce sites to have the best warehouse solution to meet the continued growth in online sales ensuring they not only manage the goods, but manage them in an efficient and cost effective way.”
Although ecommerce businesses do not physically store goods, they do need a warehouse with an efficient picking system to ensure orders are fulfilled on a daily basis. Keymas are experts in warehouse automation and have experience in helping ecommerce and distribution companies to expand whilst cutting costs.
For Keymas full projects usually involve installing automated picking systems and integrating them with specialist warehouse software to create an effective solution to order fulfillment. Keymas work with each of their clients to come up with a unique solution that will meet their individual needs and requirements. Additional products like barcode scanners can be incorporated into the automated picking system. This will increase the accuracy of the picking process, leading to effective order fulfillment and ultimately customer satisfaction.
Keymas has also developed their own warehouse software which can be customised to meet the needs of each individual business. This can be integrated with existing systems, such as ecommerce website and database. This will increase functionality by providing live inventory management, ensuring that product quantities are updated and clients are notified when running low on stock.
“As the growth in ecommerce sites continues to explode, Keymas is well placed to meet the future predicted demand through its sophisticated automated warehouse systems.” Concludes Chris.
