Kenco Wins Prestigious Industry Award from JDA Software Group

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.—May 5, 2015 Kenco was recently honored with the “Best Time to Value” award presented by JDA Software Group, Inc. for a remarkable warehouse management system (WMS) implementation. Kenco accepted the award last week at the 10th annual JDA Real Results Awards ceremony held during the FOCUS 2015 global conference. Kenco was recognized for going live with JDA Warehouse Management in less than nine months—achieving full productivity within two weeks.

“Our goal was to support one of our pharmaceutical customer’s growing order volumes and regulatory compliance needs,” said Kenco Vice President of Technology Kristi Montgomery. “JDA’s tier-1 WMS helps Kenco operate at a new level of efficiency, and gives our customer greater visibility into their inventory and order management processes.”

Montgomery says the new system manages 30 percent more volume using the same space and workforce, dock-to-stock time improved by 12 hours, and pick-line replenishment has improved by more than 50 percent.

The 2015 Real Results Award winners were selected from among JDA’s more than 4,000 global customers and represent companies that have the best success stories in six categories.
