McCook Cold Storage (MCCS), a family-owned-and-operated temperature-controlled warehouse and transportation facility in McCook IL, selected Datex FootPrint WMS software to improve its warehouse operations.
Specialists in handling and storage of refrigerated food product inventory, MCCS chose Datex FootPrint WMS in order to improve inventory traceability and increase the visibility and availability of real-time data.
To enhance product traceability, Datex worked with MCCS to implement radio frequency (RF) mobile devices in its facility and also helped improve inventory tracking processes. The Datex and MCCS teams worked seamlessly to ensure a streamlined software implementation project.
“McCook Cold Storage made an exceptional show of confidence in Datex FootPrint WMS by doing a full migration from their old WMS directly to FootPrint,” said Richard Szynkiewicz, Datex implementation project manager. “Typically, new WMS clients switch one or more of their customers over to the new warehouse management system and initially run both the old and new WMS systems in parallel. In this case, MCCS was so comfortable with the project that they decided to forego this and move to a full migration earlier than originally planned.”
Developed to be highly configurable using workflow to automate processes, Datex FootPrint WMS includes special functionality for cold storage and third-party logistics (3PL). The system was developed using Microsoft technology and includes features specifically for cold storage warehouse operations. It provides temperature capture, ability to restrict inventory to specific temperature zones; catch weight; track and trace inventory by lot, vat code, SKU, UPC, or ingredient; 3PL billing; and other offerings essential for cold storage warehouse operations.
