Imperial Distributors Case Study

Modernizing DC Operations Without Changing WMS​

The Objective

Imperial’s 20-year old JD Edwards warehouse management system from Oracle provides RF-based receiving and inventory control, and although it also provides RF-based picking, the system does not adequately support Imperial’s complex picking requirements. Therefore, picking was performed using stickers and paper lists across more than a dozen different picking zones. Supply chain and IT managers at Imperial investigated a variety of technology alternatives to modernize their picking processes, including a WMS upgrade.
