Janam Technologies LLC, a leading provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly, today announced that Holland Bazaar, one of London’s largest wholesale food suppliers, has selected Janam’s XG Series for barcode scanning and product selection at the company’s new, 24-hour warehouse.
Nation Wilcox Systems Ltd., a leading software solution provider for the wholesale food service distribution and supply sector, developed and installed a customized ISSAC (Integrated Sales & Stock Accounting) system for Holland Bazaar. Widely recognized throughout the industry, the Nation Wilcox ISSAC system provides a complete solution for order processing, sales, purchases and nominal accounting, stock control, statistics and profitability reporting.
“Holland Bazaar has been a customer of ours since we originally installed our ISSAC system in December of 2007 at their Tottenham wholesale fruit and vegetable cash and carry warehouse,” said Neil Nation, Director at Nation Wilcox. “For their new warehouse, which is ten times larger than the old premises, we scrutinized the stock management and checkout processes to ensure the new system would support not only operational efficiency and the dramatic increase in inventoried items but our customer’s steady growth as well. For this, we selected Janam’s XG105 because it is a powerful workhorse with distinct features ideally suited to the on-site requirements.”
The ISSAC System developed for Holland Bazaar supports operations with tools for receiving stock, sales entry, stock checking and point-of-sale (POS), in addition to the complete spectrum of 'back office' accounting systems. This wireless solution, which runs on Janam’s XG105 as well as iPad Minis at the checkout, communicates real-time data and directs POS invoices to nominated printer(s). The system allows each mobile device to establish multiple, simultaneous sessions with the ISSAC server so that for example, two or more customers can be served at the same time while supplier consignment price returns and/or stock receipts entry can also be processed.
“Many of the stocked products at Holland Bazaar’s new warehouse are imported, and the products that are shrink-wrapped, packaged, canned or boxed will typically carry a barcode,” said Nation. “However, Holland Bazaar is also a most significant fresh produce wholesaler in the region, so their sales people must have the ability to quickly enter sales of non-barcoded products. With advanced scanning capability as well as its large, well-spaced keys and separate numeric and alpha keyboards, the XG105 makes these POS functions easy. This in turn speeds checkout time and gets customers on their way quickly.”
“Our new warehouse open 24-hours 7-days a week is designed to maximize convenience for our customers,” said Ali Matur, Managing Director of Holland Bazaar. “It is a unique operation with unique needs. Nation Wilcox worked to fully understand our goals and what was needed to achieve those goals. We are one hundred percent satisfied with the results of their work.”
“When visiting the new warehouse, it is readily apparent that Holland Bazaar considered every detail in order to deliver highest quality and convenience to their customers,” said Robert Hurt, General Manager of Janam’s European Sales. “We are particularly pleased that Janam’s XG105 is part of this solution. To be recommended and selected under such rigorous requirements is a testimonial any business would be proud of.”
