One Warehouse IT Consulting at Scotch & Soda
In the last weeks, our team started into the final phase of the One Warehouse project at Scotch & Soda Amsterdam. Core of this projects is the centralisation of European logistics in one location for all business units of our client.
In this thrilling project, the latest product from Manhattan Active (MAWM) was implemented as a warehouse management system (WMS) into a high-performance IT infrastructure. With our consulting services, the processes in the business units of e-commerce, retail and wholesale were digitalised and optimised.

From Strategy to Implementation
In preparation for the go-lives, cutover strategies were created for a smooth transition from the old to the new IT landscape. In Smoke tests all processes were reviewed and tested in pre-defined end-to-end scenarios. Daily start-up meetings with the operations team were used for the fine-tuning of the new processes. In the project, the go-lives were executed in these phases:
Functions and Adaptations
In addition to the implementation of a new state-of-the art software landscape other key objectives of the project were the improvement of IT infrastructure and process optimisation. In this context, the consideration of dependency with other projects and workflows as well as resource planning was an important factor in the consulting services. The VCE team ensured the successful integration of the new software into the new IT infrastructure. Furthermore, all printed documents such as shipping labels, packing slip and invoices were newly generated according to the optimised end-to-end processes.
We consider the agile project management as a key success factor of the challenging project. We would like to thank our client Scotch & Soda for the trust they have placed in us and for the successful cooperation and look forward to the remaining phases of the One Warehouse project.
