LeMans Corporation Achieves 100% Inventory Accuracy at the Bin Level
LeMans Corporation, a billion dollar wholesale distributor of OEM and replacement parts for the power sports industry, delivers for a global dealer network of over 30,000 retailers.
In a competitive wholesale landscape, LeMans Corporation – fulfilling an average of 20,000 orders per day, 7.5 lines per order, while also managing a complex centralized returns processing environment – required a warehouse management system to ensure inventory accuracy and global visibility.
LeMans Corporation maintains one of the most complex and efficient distribution models in the world, including 10 miles of high-speed conveyors utilizing intelligent RFID tote routing and tracking, and online traffic controls for inbound receipts, returns, and outbound orders. irms|WM® Warehouse Management was implemented in a redundant Red Hat Linux environment, supporting over 700 concurrent users with real-time data through a network of advanced RF devices over a dedicated, secure WAN.
LeMans Corporation deployed the irms|WM Warehouse Management System at each of its six regional distribution centers, integrating to a multi-tiered material handling environment in each facility. The implementation effort included multi-site project management, business process analysis and mapping, personnel and work management, leading system integration, and test plan development for systems quality assurance.
The WMS has allowed LeMans Corporation to leverage its inventory and human capital, enforce continuity in its supply chain network, and achieve 100% inventory accuracy at the bin level, increasing throughput and guaranteeing same-day order fulfillment and 100% shipping accuracy.
