BITLOG WMS to launch in the UAE with Synergyby Sarah Jacotine on May 6, 2015
Bitlog AB from Sweden is launching its Bitlog Warehouse Management System in the UAE, in partnership with IT solution providers Synergy Software Solutions.
Bitlog first entered the UAE market in October 2014 and is now officially launching Bitlog WMS supported by Synergy Software Solutions.
Fred Boström, CEO, Bitlog, said:“The UAE distribution and retail industry is developing at a very dynamic pace and there is a great need for efficiency, both with work flow and costs in the vastly growing freezones, like JAFZA, DAFZA and Ajman Freezone.
"This makes the UAE the perfect choice for us. Not only does Bitlog WMS offer a fully automated system to manage the distribution chain, but it does it such an innovative way that the cost savings and warehouse operations drastically improve from the first day on.”
The WMS will be unveiled on 15 June, 2015, at the launch event jointly hosted by Bitlog and Synergy in Dubai. The software is compatible with all the common ERP systems and comes with a mobile interface.
A customer, Mårten Larsson, chief information officer of Hultafors Group, will be present at the launch event to speak about the 15% savings the company achieved through using Bitlog WMS across multiple warehouses.
Stephen Jones, Director Synergy Software Systems, commented “We are encouraged by the focus and support Bitlog is bringing to this launch. The UAE has evolved from a regional distribution hub to a global one as new ports, airports, and railways link with the material cities and freezones.
"The user friendly Microsoft look and feel and technology stack were other factors in bringing the solution to market, but what matters most is how will it help you run your warehouse to give better service at lower cost. Some features we like include rapid reallocation of inventory based on changing priorities and rapid rescheduling of deliveries- which is crucial for many industries. We think Biltog will add value to many warehouse and distribution operations whether in house or 3PL companies”.
