Starwest Botanicals selects TransLution to replace manual paper-based data capture
Starwest Botanicals is one of the largest suppliers of organic herbs in the United States, with over 150,000 sq. ft. of modern warehouse and production space and over one million pounds of herbs and spices in stock. Starwest Botanicals is poised to continue their rapid growth and chose TransLution to support them in their growth objectives by replacing their manual paper-based data capture.
The primary objectives for the TransLution Software implementation at Starwest Botanicals are to achieve visibility and accuracy across purchase orders, sales orders, manufacturing job status, raw material, WIP, and finished good stock levels in SYSPRO, and to reduce the administration and operational staff cost for warehouse and manufacturing operations.
The first phase included the implementation of Labelling, Purchase Order Receiving and Inventory Movements. Starwest selected to implement the TransLution two stage pallet receiving process whereby one user creates pallets by scanning all items received against a purchase order, printing items labels if required, and another uses a TransLution grid to review unposted purchase orders before posting to Syspro. Non-stock purchase orders are also received via TransLution. TransLution also facilitates the process to release stock into the warehouse once quality checks have been passed.
Subsequent phases are underway, which include manufacturing, labor tracking, and sales order picking and packing.
