Whisky specialist and wine and spirit merchant, Gordon & MacPhail has invested in the Accord Voice WMS system from BCP to cover its warehouse operation from door-to-door at its headquarters in Elgin, Scotland.
Established in 1895, family owned and managed Gordon & MacPhail is one of Scotland's leading independent whisky specialists through wholesaling, bottling, exporting and distilling owning Benromach Distillery in Forres.
Gordon & MacPhail made history in March this year as is launched the world's oldest bottled Single Malt Scotch Whisky a 70 year old Mortlach under its Generations brand.
BCP (Business Computer Projects Ltd) is one of the UK's top suppliers of specialist Supply Chain software and warehouse management systems (WMS) and has been a leader in introducing Voice directed warehouse technology to the UK market. Key BCP clients include Pedigree Wholesale, Pets at Home, SPAR, Musgrave and BWG.
The investment in Voice technology was prompted by Gordon & MacPhail's wish to modernise and improve warehouse efficiency, by replacing its paper-based warehouse management system with the latest technology.
In a very competitive selection process, BCP's Accord was chosen due to its ability to provide a flexible, integrated warehouse management solution able to deliver proven Voice functionality across the whole warehouse.
The multi user Accord Voice WMS will go live early in 2011 and will use XML to interface directly to Gordon & MacPhail's existing stock management system.
Neil Urquhart, Director - Logistics & Facilities, at Gordon & MacPhail said: "Through the procurement process we visited a number of different companies throughout the UK to fully understand the strong functionality and benefits the Accord system will bring to us. We look forward getting the system up and running, helping us to drive increased efficiency and further enhancing our reputation for delivering exceptional customer service."
