OPT Services and APD Autoparts & Diagnostics have both recently selected ProSKU to manage their stock management, warehouse and distribution operations.

Based in Ipswich, Suffolk, OPT Services supplies fibre optic cables and products to the telecommunications industry. The company was looking for a system to optimise its warehouse and logistics operations and to help streamline their own processes.

Antony Birt from OPT Services comments: “We chose ProSKU as a cost effective solution for our size of business that we couldn’t find with any other WMS, but with the ability to grow with us as we expand. We have been impressed with the level of knowledge and support through the sales and implementation phases. It’s clear that ProSKU have experience of implementing with many previous customers, which also makes us feel we have made the right choice.”

Based in Gloucester and with eight branches across the South West, APD Autoparts & Diagnostics is a supplier of top quality automotive parts, tools and diagnostic equipment. Independently operated, the company has been in business since 1991 and is considered one of the best run motor factors in the South West.

Chris Lima at APD comments: “We use ProSKU as a ‘Pallet Management System’ ensuring they are all booked into the warehouse and easily found. Despite the ProSKU system predominately being a WMS, the flexibility it offers has enabled us to adapt it to our requirements, which resulted in a pain free implementation process as well as facilitating best use of our warehouse racking resources.

“As a company that collects data in order to celebrate successes, the data capture and performance management elements ProSKU offers has exceeded our expectations. This has proven to have added benefits in expanding our error investigation processes and supported performance management of both our warehouse and forklift teams. The affordable start-up costs and excellent value for money enabled us to gain a really good return on investment as well as the added operational benefits.”

Bruno Pinheiro, National Sales Manager at ProSKU, comments: “We are obviously delighted to bring OPT Services and APD on board as clients. No two companies’ needs are the same, but we were able to implement ProSKU to meet their requirements. This was not only down to the functionality of the system itself, but also the vast amount of experience and expertise we have at our disposal within the company.”
