DC Ops is in Our DNA

We founded Longbow as experts in distribution center operations before we were experts in software. If you visit our “Why Longbow” page, you’ll see that we are inspired when we recognize a need for a data service platform that could make it easy for anyone to get more information – and value – from their WMS, LMS and TMS.

Since then, we’ve made sure to build our software expertise, bringing on board a select team of people who are supply chain execution system gurus with warehouse operations sensibility.

We know that technology alone isn’t the answer. WMS implementations can be complex, so our Warehouse Management Services team strives to make yours more simple with a proven, repeatable methodology – ABCD (Assess, Build, Confirm, Deploy). We map out every step and milestone, from the initial facility walk-through to cutover, training and support, to ensure that your project stays on schedule and on budget.

  • Assess – This stage starts with kickoff and finishes with sign-off on the plan. In between, we develop the vision and requirements to take your WMS from current state to future state.
  • Build – The heavy lift starts with a setup workshop. Then, we move through applications and report development, archiving setup, system integration and testing to conference room pilot (CRP) and solution signoff.
  • Confirm – Technology and training are central to this stage. We test integration, verify performance with test scenarios and test scripts (to exercise basic and deep exceptions to processes) and hold a mock go-live. Meanwhile, customized staff-wide training is underway.
  • Deploy – Go live! After assuring system readiness, we make the cut-over, providing comprehensive support throughout the transition and beyond.
