The initial phase saw the implementation of the QC Navigator and QC OMS modules of the QC Enterprise software solution. QC OMS plans orders for picking utilizing specific cartonization rules and efficiently routes each container to the proper picking zone employing zone skipping rules configured within the system. QC Navigator communicates with pick to light technology for quick and efficient picking throughout the process.
Phase II of the Arbonne implementation saw the addition of two (2) additional picking zones making QC Enterprise the single communication point to Arbonne’s warehouse management system and material handling equipment.
In Phase III, Arbonne implemented QC SMS to streamline its shipping process. Now, Arbonne utilizes a single shipping system to process all orders for multiple carriers.
In July of 2006, Arbonne is opening its new facility in Greenwood, IN. QC Software was selected as the vendor of choice to manage the entire 300,000 sq. ft. facility.
