  • WMS investment will support company’s five-year growth strategy.

International supply chain solutions provider TouchPath is to implement its TouchWMS warehouse management system for leading bathroom fittings company VADO.

VADO exports to 60 countries and is a member of the publicly listed, 1,700-employee Norcros PLC group of companies.

VADO manages four warehouses in Somerset, England, totaling 651,186 square feet and dispatches in excess of 30,000 units per week. TouchWMS will be integrated with VADO’s existing Microsoft Dynamics NAV ERP system and will manage all warehouse processes including production picking and reporting.

Commenting on VADO’s reasons for investing in TouchWMS, quality and operations director Rachel Kirk said: “The new WMS is central to the company’s program of warehouse process improvement that supports our five-year strategy for growth. The new system will allow us to improve accuracy, record movements in real-time and increase our ability to report on and manage our operations function. We looked at a number of options before deciding that TouchWMS has the functionality to meet our needs, both now and in the future. TouchPath seem to understand our business well and are keen to provide the practical solutions we need.”

VADO markets and distributes over 4,000 bathroom products to more than 1,300 retailers and 200 architects, designers, and other hotel and housing specifiers in the United Kingdom, and to over 60 countries worldwide.

TouchPath uses smart, flexible modules that can be bolted together in almost any combination to deliver a customized solution at an off-the-shelf price, deploying systems technology that captures more information for better business performance and faster ROI, according to the company. TouchPath is installing TouchWMS at VADO with implementation partner Patchworks.
