Middleby Residential Implements TransLution™ Software
Middleby Residential provides ultra-premium, residential kitchen appliances across the globe. Middleby Merchandise, which distributes these high-end appliances throughout the United States, was the first of the Middleby divisions to go live with TrasnLution Software.
The merchandise division is run across three warehouses and TransLution™ is used across the whole business – from receiving of goods though to dispatch of sales orders. This implementation of TrasnLution dealt with appliances only leaving the project for parts to do at a later stage. All appliances are received against Purchase orders and the serial number of each item is captured at receipt. Middleby’s SYSPRO system was not setup up to support multiple bins on the merchandise warehouses so TransLution™ only records quantities and serials where necessary and posts them to SYSPRO.
Not all sales orders have specific serial numbers allocated to them and TransLution™ helps the users to find the correct appliances for each order. TransLution™ is used to scan items to a shipment, serials are captured where necessary. These shipments frequently consist of multiple orders intended for the same region of the country. Once the sales order has been fully picked using the TransLution™ scanners, the sales order is updated with the picked quantities and serial numbers, then the status is automatically updated so that it is ready for invoicing in Syspro.
