Latin companies choose RedPrairie software
Milwaukee-based RedPrairie Corp. and its partner NetLogistiK, said Tuesday that seven Latin American companies have recently chosen RedPrairie's Warehouse Management software.
NetLogistiK will implement RedPrairie's WM software for six new customers in Mexico and one in Argentina. NetLogistiK and RedPrairie became partners in 2003 and have 42 sites in Mexico and Latin America. They are:
' Accel, a third-party logistics provider, chose RedPrairie WMS and RF for more than 10 sites in Mexico.
' Servicargo, a 3PL, plans to implement WMS and RF at five sites in Mexico.
' Farmacias del Ahorro, a pharmaceutical retailer, will implement WMS, Voice Picking and RF at three new sites in Mexico.
' Multipack, a 3PL, has implemented its first site in Mexico City.
' Grupo Dico, a furniture retailer, has chosen NetLogistiK for distribution center design and RedPrairie WMS for two new sites in Mexico.
' Farmacia Guadalajara, a pharmaceutical retailer, plans to implement WMS and Voice Picking at its facilities.
' Celsur, a 3PL, has chosen WMS for its Buenos Aires distribution center.
'As the world becomes more globalized and boundaries irrelevant, Latin American companies of all sizes are facing increasing competition from both near and far away countries,' said Francisco Giral, chief executive officer for NetLogistiK. 'Especially in the vertical industries of retail and high-value goods, such as pharmaceutical, electronics and third party logistics, companies are adopting technology to better manage inventory both in the warehouse and in transit while protecting their operating margins. These companies are gaining supply chain security and visibility to give them a strong competitive edge.'
