HighJump partners with IWMS to help enhance operations for African manufacturer

August 9, 2018 - HighJump, a provider of supply chain solutions, announced that, in partnership with independent software developer, innovator and team augmentation partner iWMS, it is modernizing the operations of manufacturer of consumer goods (FMCG) BIDCO Africa Limited. This is one of recent global new customers for HighJump.

Capitalizing on the HighJump WMS and supply chain analytics application HighJump Pulse, BIDCO Africa Limited is on a path.

With an objective to hit a billion-dollar revenue within the next five years, BIDCO Africa Limited is constructing an industrial park with 10 new factories. BIDCO Africa Limited, with HighJump and the support of iWMS, is gaining end-to-end supply chain transparency to improve workflows and adapt to its growth trajectory. This includes evolving operations with traceability and recall management, inventory management, tracking and shipping via FEFO/FIFO expiry dates, and worker productivity. All of this is powered through real-time data analytics interpreted in the WMS. The solution also integrates with BIDCO Africa Limited’s SAP ERP.

“We needed a WMS built to scale with our expansion capabilities,” said Alkane Patel, chief information officer, BIDCO Africa Limited. “After rigorously evaluating seven providers, HighJump proved to have the best-in-class functionality. This includes upgradability, system adaptability, industry experience with implementation partner expertise, and interface capabilities at the lowest total cost of ownership. We now have the confidence to grow our business sustainably with visibility into performance metrics and a foundation for continuous process improvement.” 

BIDCO Africa Limited manufactures premium brands available across 17 countries in Africa. This is one of many recent wins for HighJump and iWMS, including Jack’s of Fiji and Woolworths.
