Miners Puts Warehouse Management at Heart of Digital Transformation with SNS and Infor

Minnesota, US, September 2023 – SNS, a leading provider of supply chain consultancy and software implementation, today announced that leading wholesaler, Miners Inc (Miners), has deployed Infor WMS. This implementation is a pivotal component of a significant digital transformation initiative undertaken by Miners. The project encompassed seamless integration of Order Management System, Infor ERP, and Infor WMS, complete with voice picking capabilities, resulting in the simultaneous launch of all systems. This comprehensive solution is poised to revolutionize Miners' operations, enhancing agility and traceability across the organization.

With brands including Mars Inc., Kellogg’s, Nutella (Ferrero SpA), President, Cheez-it, Hershey’s, Jolly Time, and TGI Friday’s, Miners operates around 36,000 SKUs across a two-shift operation. The nature of the company’s stock means that traceability and expiry date management are crucial, and as such this was a priority in setting out project requirements. To address these critical concerns, SNS crafted a tailored and highly efficient picking strategy. This strategy takes into consideration crucial factors such as order priority, optimal routing, and equipment requirements, ultimately resulting in heightened operational efficiency and adaptability, ensuring a seamless flow within Miners Inc's supply chain.

"SNS's on-the-ground expertise and project management strategy were pivotal in achieving a seamless implementation of Infor WMS,” comments Tyree Johnson: IT Director, Miners Inc. “Not only did they proactively identify readiness gaps during project setup, in light of the issues flagged, they took the bold step of moving the go-live date which averted disruptions and ensured a highly successful and smooth go-live.” 

“The fast-paced nature of the FMCG and food service industries means that visibility and the ability to pivot quickly as demand changes are imperative,” comments Wadih Assouad, Business Manager, SNS North America.  “Miners’ digital transformation program is a crucial pillar in optimizing this capability, and we are delighted to have supported the smooth deployment of Infor WMS with voice picking, in conjunction with their respective Order Management System and Infor ERP solutions, so that they can hit the ground running and thrive in an ever-evolving marketplace.”
