Bad Nauheim, Germany, 12/4/2018
The French logistics and transport service provider C-Log, specialized in services for textiles and fashion accessories, relies on solutions from the inconso Logistics Suite: From warehouse management to the invoicing of logistic services, customers of the company can fall back on a complete solution.
Commissioning of a powerful and functional WMS
For over 15 years, C-Log has been supporting the Beaumanoir Group and external partners in France and abroad as an omnichannel service provider for the fashion and textile retail business. In order to adapt to the changing shopping habits and high demands of the textile mail order business, C-Log decided to implement a new IT system that can cope with the strategic developments of the next ten years.
We ultimately chose the logistics software specialist inconso, as Benoit Garçon, CEO at C Log, explains: “Our businesses are changing rapidly and require continuous performance improvements to take advantage of tomorrow's opportunities, such as omnichannel retail. This IT system will support our ambitions in this direction and enable us to integrate new customers faster.”
inconso scored with its know-how of smooth processing, far-reaching retail references, efficient functional and technical solution features, but also with its flexibility in terms of project integration, customer service and maintenance. “In addition, this project is part of a corporate approach that also creates improvements for employees. Overall, thanks to its functional and technical advantages, the inconso solution enables processes to be completed faster while also being flexibly adaptable to C-Log's future development ambitions. We can also use the system to react to issues such as international growth, central management of warehouse stock and customer orders, renewal of technical systems and RFID integration,” explains Garçon.
The inconso Logistics Suite, a real tool for management and control
“Due to its architecture and modularity, the inconso Logistics Suite provides a good basis for responding to changing logistic requirements, regardless of the size and typology of the company,” explains Luc Molinari, Sales Manager at inconso.
C-Log decided to implement several solutions of the software suite. These include the warehouse management system inconsoWMS, the cross-location stock management system inconsoSCE (Supply Chain Execution system), inconsoRMS for resource management and inconsoLSA for invoicing logistics services. The C-Log sites in Saint-Malo and Longueil Sainte-Marie are currently in the migration phase. Other sites will follow suit by the end of 2019 and new customers will be integrated into the new warehouse management system.
As an omnichannel supply chain expert, C-Log offers logistics and transport solutions tailored to companies in the textile and fashion accessories industries (ready-to-wear, cosmetics, footwear, leather goods, sporting goods, accessories, luxury goods, etc.). C-Log has a total storage area of 160,000 m² at six sites in France and one site in Shanghai. Furthermore, C-Log has 500 employees and 7,000 stores in over 90 countries.
