Falk & Ross Group is one of the leading wholesalers of promotional textiles such as T-shirts, jackets, bags, caps, scarves and gloves as well as workwear and sportswear. The company has successfully modernized its warehouse management solution pL-Store® with the aim of making order processing more efficient across the board and also taking account of new market requirements. In the long term, it has now been ensured that all customers in the domestic as well as neighboring markets are supplied safely and quickly with goods of the desired quality.
Software as a core element of a cross-site strategy
“Software for warehouse management and material flow control that is standardized across the board prevents system breaks, creates transparency and enables a reliable flow of information,” explains Tobias Brügmann, Head of Logistic-Systems at Falk & Ross Group. “However, the particular advantage of pL-Store® is also that a large number of relevant functions for mail order logistics are already included in the software as standard.” This also saves valuable time, because only the necessary, company-specific LVS modules need to be integrated.
