Highly intuitive user experience

Two of the deciding factors in selecting Indigo WMS were the software’s highly intuitive user experience – especially for new WMS system users – and Indigo’s strong track record of completing seamless implementations, with minimal disruption to normal business operations. Indigo will be fully integrated with SAP for the seamless exchange of customer data and incoming sales orders with pick and dispatch processes. This will include extracting real-time feeds from SAP and pushing ‘confirmation of completion’ data back, once the end to end logistics process is complete.
