Can a warehouse management solution be implemented on-time and on budget? This Savant ADC customer profile on AMS reveals that the answer is YES … with the right solution provider. ERP and WMS implementations still have a high (50%) failure rate and of those that are successful almost 80% of the customers are unhappy due to significant cost overruns and delays. AMS Automotive, a manufacturer of automotive parts, needed a warehouse automation solution to improve “inventory accuracy and control that will result in a reduction of overall inventory investment”, states Jay Sweeney, Director of Operations. Mr. Sweeney was also concerned about “budget and service” with the goal of keeping implementation costs under control and hitting the target Go-Live date on time.
AMS selected Savant’s ADC product because it met their primary goal, and Savant’s implementation methodology would keep the project on-time and on-budget. AMS carries approximately 10,000 different items in inventory, which are stored in both primary picking and overstock locations within their main warehouse. The Savant ADC product has allowed AMS to add real-time barcode scanning technology to Receiving, Put-Away, Replenishment, Picking, Returns and Kit Assembly. All of this inventory activity is integrated with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013, which was installed 18 months prior to the warehouse project.
From the time AMS made their decision to the scheduled Go-Live date there was less than 90 days to complete the project. This included 30 days for testing, and 4 days for performing a full physical inventory in the warehouse just prior to Go-Live. The AMS and Savant teams held weekly project meetings and were able to hit each project milestone on-time and on-budget. Mr. Sweeney concludes, “AMS would strongly recommend Savant”.
