Worldwide Chain Stores (WCS) and Celtech have unveiled a technology collaboration that they say could solve the biggest challenge facing retailers and wholesalers – real-time visibility and control of their supply chains.

The tight integration between Celtech’s and WCS’ solutions for retail and warehouse management offers retailers and wholesalers an integrated, end-to-end retail and warehouse solution, ‘out of the box’, according to the companies.

The result of the collaboration means that customers will now have maximum visibility of their entire supply chain within the context of a sophisticated retail and warehouse management system.

Both firms have agreed to deliver a “seamless integration” between each of their respective products, CSnx and ab-initio.

WCS, a supplier of supply chain and logistics technology has an established 20-year relationship with Celtech, whose software delivers live visibility and instant control to retail and wholesale operations.

Celtech’s ab-initio is the core trading platform for some of the UK’s biggest retail chains and independent wholesale groups.

Working together to offer an ‘out of the box’ offering, means we are able to offer our customers a next generation WMS platform that fits perfectly with all the benefits they get from our mission critical software application.”

Joshila Makan, CEO of WCS said: “We strive to offer our customers best-in-class products that deliver true value for money, and this collaboration will ensure we can offer a fully integrated, end-to-end solution for our customers that gives them clear visibility across the whole supply chain.

“We’re especially excited to align with Celtech given our culture and synergies are so well aligned.”
