DB Schenker Canada Selects SmartTurn To Provide Real Time Inventory Visibility

SmartTurn Inc., the leading On-Demand Inventory and Warehouse Management System (WMS) provider, today announced that Schenker of Canada Limited has selected the SmartTurn™ Inventory and Warehouse Management System to achieve real time inventory visibility and streamline the delivery process. Schenker Canada determined that SmartTurn's on-demand, an enterprise-class solution offered reliability comparable to traditional enterprise software with dramatic cost savings.

“After conducting an extensive evaluation of several solutions, SmartTurn's on-demand WMS not only addressed our inventory management and rapid deployment needs but met our expectations as the best solution in that range,” said Morris Di Stefano, Vice President, Information Technology at Schenker Canada. “With its ability to quickly deploy to multiple locations combined with significant inventory accuracy and expense control, SmartTurn's WMS 2.0 technology provides us with unparalleled inventory management capabilities.”

Beyond the core WMS capabilities, SmartTurn's SaaS WMS provides rapid integration and real-time visibility across warehouses and the supply chain. In contrast, legacy on-premise software implementations suffer from complex and lengthy implementations that hinder visibility and collaboration. With an increasing necessity for accurate inventory and fulfillment, many 3PLs have discovered that implementing SmartTurn is now a precursor for new customer acquisition.

Schenker Canada will run several inventory management operations using SmartTurn's WMS 2.0 technology. SmartTurn's enterprise-class, the on-demand system will enable Schenker Canada to have real-time visibility at the inventory and warehouse level, allowing them to better communicate and collaborate with their partners and customers. In addition, the company will be able to support more efficient and accurate storage and fulfillment services, functionality that would be difficult to manage and costly to implement with traditional enterprise software.

“As Schenker Canada looked to connect their warehouse locations while providing secure and accurate access to their supply chain network, they realized that SmartTurn's on-demand solution meets those needs, while increasing internal productivity and customer satisfaction,” said Jim Burleigh, CEO of SmartTurn. “Our solution offers industry-leading companies such as Schenker Canada enterprise-class functionality with the reliability and cost savings within the structure of an on-demand, scalable system.”

SmartTurn™ Inventory and Warehouse Management System and the SmartTurn Inventory Grid™ are the first true on-demand warehouse management systems to provide enterprise-class functionality for small to medium enterprises. Based on its WMS 2.0™ technology and similar to social networking sites such as LinkedIn and Facebook, SmartTurn offers a global collaboration platform that can be delivered across geographic or corporate boundaries and enables companies to easily implement and integrate additional sites to gain enterprise-wide warehouse visibility and management without any added IT infrastructure or server hardware costs. Warehouses can instantly integrate the information flows within their own organizations and federated trading communities by simply adjusting security and permission configurations. Starting at $500 per month per site with no limit on the number of users, support and maintenance upgrades are included.
