Small Order Picks

Baker & Taylor implemented Indigo’s Warehouse Management System technology to continue to maintain its very high delivery promise to its customers. The implementation of Indigo’s Warehouse Management System resulted in a fully optimised resource managed paperless solution. Baker & Taylor’s control of small order picks has transformed the order to despatch process and the use of Indigo’s Marshalling module has allowed us to positively confirm every item of stock into the shipper carton.
