G.Fox implements TransLution™ Software across multiple sites
After a successful implementation and go live in Johannesaburg, G Fox is now using TransLution across multiple sites including the Vaal Triangle, Cape Town, KZN, Middelburg, PE, Polokwane and Swaziland.
As a proud member of the Bidvest Group, G.Fox is South Africa’s premier supplier of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and industrial consumable supplies. With eight branches, quality products are distributed all over South Africa.
G.Fox has built a reputation as the first point of call for any business or individual looking for a reliable and quality supplier for their industrial consumable requirements. As a leader in the industry, G.Fox realised that the time had come to evaluate and streamline operations, minimize losses and increase efficiency. TransLution™ Software ticked all the boxes when evaluated to fit G.Fox’s needs.
Handheld scanners running TransLution™ Software are used to receive stock. As the Purchase Order is scanned items being received are validated against SYSPRO so no incorrect items can be received on the Purchase Order. The receiving clerk verifies the items on an EazyTouch terminal and posts the information to SYSPRO to generate a Goods Received Note. Pallet labels are printed which include all the details of the stock. Stock is put-away and moved around the warehouse with a single scan making the process efficient and accurate.
G.Fox also uses TransLution™ Software’s stock take functionality with handheld scanners doing the stock counts. A stock take session is first created in SYSPRO, then stock is scanned and quantities are entered and posted immediately to the stock take session. Once complete, this is reviewed by a supervisor and any discrepancies are recounted. When the count is approved, the stock take session is posted to SYSPRO, updating the stock figures in real time.
What was previously a daunting manual process that took weeks to complete is now done in a matter of hours.
G.Fox has subsequently rolled out the same processes to six of its branches across South Africa. Head Office has visibility of the entire inventory in the value chain at each branch.
TransLution™ Software has enabled G.Fox to increase inventory management efficiencies. Significant labor cost savings were realised as staff time was re-allocated to more productive tasks, and customer satisfaction is at an all time high. Another successful implementation under TransLution™ Software’s belt.
