Sony of Canada has upgraded the RedPrairie warehouse management system in its distribution centers in Whitby, Ontario and Coquitlam, British Columbia. New functionality in the upgraded WMS includes voice picking from Vocollect Inc.
The warehouses service all wholesale and retail sales throughout Canada. The wholesale group is responsible for marketing and sales of Sony products to consumers through a dealer network, and to professionals through multiple direct sales channels. The retail group operates approximately 80 Sony Style retail locations and is responsible for direct merchandising and sales of Sony and third-party products to consumers.
"RedPrairie's WMS plays a critical role in Sony Canada's distribution operations," says Rick Courtin, business process manager, Supply Chain Group, at Sony of Canada Ltd. "This new version allows us to enhance our capabilities; for example, enabling voice picking technology for cluster picking."
