– IBS WMS Helps Packaging Solutions Leader Manage Massive Volumes for U.S. Postal Service
FOLSOM, Calif., Feb. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — International Business Systems (IBS), a leading global integrated ERP, WMS and supply chain technology provider, today announced that Victory Packaging has selected IBS Dynaman warehouse management software (WMS) to drive efficiencies in the organization’s 65+ warehouse and distribution centers.
The $2.4-billion company provides just-in-time delivery and inventory management to a diverse customer base. Its national network includes more than 6-million sq. ft. of warehouse space and about 400 delivery vehicles.
A long-time user of IBS Enterprise ERP software, Victory Packaging will be deploying IBS Dynaman to support its move into the lucrative 3PL (third-party logistics) market space. According to Armstrong & Associates, a research and consulting firm, the 3PL market is projected to grow 5.2 percent in 2014, bringing the U.S. market to $154 billion.
"Companies are increasingly requiring their distributors and 3PL providers to have sophisticated technology backing up their operations, and IBS is providing those business drivers for Victory Packaging," said Tim Conroy, General Manager of the Americas, IBS. "The growth of the 3PL market underscores the value of providers like Victory Packaging in managing complex distribution processes. IBS is honored to be building on the longevity of our relationship."
The Houston-based company counts the U.S. Postal Service and Mayflower Transit among its customers. The volume of orders shipped by the company for all its customers is about 11,000 pieces per hour.
"Our business reputation depends on the ability to ship products accurately and in a timely fashion. IBS is facilitating those capabilities," said Eugene Hope, CIO of Victory Packaging. "As the 3PL market continues to grow, Victory Packaging is prepared to meet the new opportunities head-on."
With the Victory Packaging agreement, IBS now has 80 U.S. sites under contract to use IBS Dynaman – part of an ongoing initiative to secure additional WMS customers in the region.
IBS is recognized as a trusted industry leader of ERP and WMS distribution software, preferred for consistently improving operational efficiencies and business performance for mid-market companies challenged by the complexities of managing distribution.
