Johannesburg Wednesday 10th February, 2016: Following a rigorous evaluation process Brands Africa has chosen Cquential's warehouse management solution
(WMS) to run its extensive warehouse facility.

Brands Africa is a leading distributor of FMCG products to the Central African Region. Based in Zimbabwe, the company boasts many years'
experience of successful trading in under developed markets, and turbulent environments. Brands Africa represents both local and international companies with strong brands providing leverage and recognition in these emerging markets.

Brands Africa CEO, Peter Tselentis, reveals the company engaged the services of an external supply chain consultant to assist with the process of finding a suitable WMS.

"We appreciated Cquential's pragmatic and open approach that included advising us to take a phased approach to roll out as opposed to implementing the comprehensive solution in one go - thereby giving us better control and change management ability. This highlighted Cquential's real understanding of effecting change in an operational environment."

He confirms that the implementation of the Cquential solution will improve stock accuracy, enhance Brands Africa's customer service and result in dramatic reduction in order turnaround times.

"It was refreshing to have advice from a potential supplier that was utterly focused on deploying the right solution for our company and the most successful roll-out methodology," adds Tselentis.

Cquential WMS for the cloud is the only cloud based WMS that has been completely developed in SA and is uniquely positioned to leverage what is happening in supply chain with the global trend towards a move to cloud.

Cquential CEO, Steve Mallaby notes the company's WMS, enables companies to manage all the elements of the warehouse essentially transforming it to become an integral part of the supply chain. "It has been developed to be an easy to deploy, cost effective warehouse management system that empowers businesses to effectively manage inventory, and drive integration plus collaboration across the supply chain," says Mallaby.

Mallaby confirms that Cquential's cloud based WMS facilitates operating cost reductions; provides real time stock accuracy and visibility, tighter control and efficiency, and accurate first time deliveries with fewer customer returns.

"The delivery of these mission critical improvements to Brands Africa's warehouse management capability translated into Cquential being a unique fit for the company's WMS requirements."
