Growing logistics firm bolsters Warehouse Management Software with help from new recruit
A national logistics, warehousing and courier firm has improved its offering to clients by updating its Warehouse Management System (WMS) and taking on an IT and Project Manager.
The NX Group, which has warehouses in Crick and Northampton covering nearly 100,000ft2, plus a fleet of vehicles which deliver bespoke services across the country, has boosted its ecommerce systems with leading software provider Access Group, making the end-to-end process smoother for customers.
Access Group supplies The NX Group with its Warehouse Management System, and the investments made to improve ecommerce operations have included updating and integrating the firm’s IT systems.
Delta, Access Group’s vital software, includes an automated admin and reporting module and a barcode pick and pack feature, plus it automatically handles the stock changes from transactions from other software platforms, including Shopify.
To help support its updated software, the NX Group has recruited Peter Connolly, from Loughborough, to work closely with Access Group, while laying the groundwork for its future ecommerce operations.
Peter said; “It’s been extremely rewarding to put my skills to good use with my own systems and frameworks plus those of Access Group in a fast growing logistics company.
“I had heard about The NX Group, and I was intrigued by the business and its personal approach.”
Neil Powell, Managing Director of The NX Group, said; “We’re very excited by the opportunities Access Group’s leading warehouse management software is providing, both for us and for our customers, who will find it easier than ever to use our systems, which can integrate with any ecommerce platform.
“As a forward thinking company, we’re also keen to bring in bright young minds to the business, and Peter Connolly has provided excellent support for our continued expansion into ecommerce.
“His invaluable expertise, coupled with the state-of-the-art systems from Access Group, will help shape the company as we look to provide an increasingly modern and bespoke service for our clients.”
