Our company prides itself on being on the cutting edge of technology and has instituted a software platform known as the Warehouse Management System for managing several aspects of warehouse operations.This software enhances customer service, reduces the incidents of expired and damaged stock, improves visibility of stock movement and enables perpetual stocktaking among other things.
