ATLANTA and SANTIAGO, Chile, Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Comercial Depor Ltda, exclusive wholesaler to all sporting goods retailers in Chile for major sporting brands, such as Converse, Ocean Pacific, Penn and Umbro, have begun implementation of LogFire Cloud-based supply chain solutions to support this highly visible omni-channel operation. Comercial Depor has been operating in Chile for over eight years as a wholesale distributor and as a retailer through their own company branded stores. Comercial Depor's multi-channel distribution includes managing the flow of goods to major retailers, regional retail customers, specialist shops, and its own retail stores. Comercial Depor is also the exclusive supplier and sponsor of Colo Colo, the most popular soccer team in Chile.
Depor Comercial has begun an ambitious modernization plan that, among other things, aims to improve the management of its distribution operations, and taking into consideration the significant economic growth in the country. This led Depor Comercial to evaluate and select LogFire for its proven experience in the design and implementation of advanced technology systems for Cloud-based warehouse management (WMS).
"We selected LogFire for its ability to manage our wholesaler, retailer, future e-commerce workflows, and third party logistics providers (3PL)," said Aron Kaufman, Owner and General Manager of Commercial Depor Ltda. "Having the warehouse management solution based in the cloud has several advantages. Not only does the short implementation time provide a huge benefit, but the integration costs are reasonable compared to other world-class WMS system alternatives, plus the ability to scale cloud-based WMS gives optimal positioning to achieve planned growth and also provides us with the best total cost of ownership for WMS in the short and long term. "
