21 March 2013 - Domino's Pizza Group plc is implementing a new 'pick-by-store' solution, which will integrate with the group's warehouse management system, OpenWMS from Advanced Business Solutions (Advanced). The new solution will go live in April.

As the leading pizza delivery company, Domino's has seen dynamic growth over the past couple of years and has expanded further into the European markets in Germany and Switzerland. With nearly 800 stores across the UK, warehouse operation and distribution are vital for continued efficiencies and prosperity.

The 'pick-by-store' solution will streamline the warehouse stock selection process, before goods are loaded onto delivery trucks. The solution will automatically allocate all the tasks for a single store to a picker, who then loads the stock directly onto a pallet, which is delivered to the store. The new system will enable a quick and easy loading process without the need to re-sort the goods prior to loading the trucks.

The new solution will integrate with OpenWMS, Advanced's warehouse management system, which the group has used for the last two years. Domino's has seen improved stock accuracy, control, rotation and operational efficiency.  Other benefits include two-way traceability and enhanced management of information.

Glenn Jeffery, Warehouse Manager at the Domino's Pizza 60,000-square foot Milton Keynes commissary, says, "We are confident the new 'pick-by-store' solution will streamline the stock selection process helping to make us much more efficient. OpenWMS has been essential for our warehouse management process and gives us the ability to monitor the availability of space in the warehouse.

"We have got full traceability of all of our food products from the in-bound to the out-bound, which is key. It's also giving us a better understanding of our stock-holding and it has given us greater control over our stock management process, reducing the number of write-offs."

On average 1570 deliveries are made per week during a six-day 24-hour operation at Milton Keynes. The warehouse services 530 outlets which need to restock every second day.

The streamlining of Domino's warehouse operations has secured a 12% increase in warehouse picking efficiencies over the past two years.
