Sheetz Selects HighJump Warehouse Management System

Convenience store chain, Sheetz, has selected HighJump Software and its warehouse management system to streamline its supply chain operations. The global provider of supply chain management software will enable Sheetz stores to replenish its 370 locations in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and North Carolina.

The search for a new warehouse management system was started by Sheetz as part of the company’s initiative to lower IT costs, as well as reduce business risks that were associated with their previous warehouse management system.

According to Eric Foose, Software Services Manager from Sheetz, the company’s previous system was expensive to maintain and cost-prohibitive to perform system upgrades. A failure to stay current on the most recent versions, however, introduced unnecessary risks for business operations.

The implementation of the HighJump warehouse management system has enabled Sheetz to replicate many of the company’s current best-practice business processes. The convenience store chain has also simplified the upgrade process, which helps to reduce the company’s total cost of ownership of the solution.

The HighJump system will manage Sheetz’ replenishment to all retail locations from the company’s distribution center, including product that must be stored at frozen, refrigerated and ambient temperatures. The warehouse management system will also be used to manage Sheetz’s food production facility.

Darrin Pohar, Director of Operations from Sheetz, shared that the company had a complex set of requirements to support its operation, including retail replenishment and food production.

HighJump presented a detailed proof-of-concept to demonstrate exactly how HighJump could effectively support Sheetz’s operations, easily configured to its needs and without rigid customized coding changes. This demonstration was considered proof positive that HighJump would deliver the warehouse management system value the company needed.

    Its good to know that Sheetz are happy with Highjump Warehouse Management System. That’s a very good proof of what warehouse management system will do for a specific business like the supply chain operations. There are lots of software vendors in the internet that offers the same however, it is very difficult to find a vendor that will suit every business needs. Downside is to get more information like in the article and search for vendors that you think will suit your business.
