Open Sky Group and Wagner Industries Improving Kitting

Kitting Accuracy

Raleigh, NC – Open Sky and Wagner Industries, Inc. (Wagner) a top 100 3PL with solutions for transportation, distribution, fulfillment and contract packaging, are partnering on a software module installation to improve accuracy in Wagner’s kitting operations. This project, the first of many initiatives between the two companies, will be deployed simultaneously with a WMS audit to identify other areas for enhancement in Wagner’s WMS, physical processes, and system configuration.

Wagner has several kitting operations that will benefit from the RedPrairie WMS Work Order module installation. In addition to minimizing administrative effort, the module will allow Wagner to control component inventories with much greater accuracy and provide tracking of components used in the finished goods, offering significant benefit to Wagner’s customers.

Joe Johnson, Director of IT, oversees the IT team and all technology projects for Wagner. Joe says, “Not only did we have an aggressive timeline for the kitting project, we also wanted this module to show our capabilities to the marketplace and it needed to function well right from the start. Open Sky was absolutely the right choice to get it done quickly and to high standards.”

“We’re very focused on our customers’ use of technology and helping them get the most from their WMS software investment,” says Curt Sardeson, President for Open Sky, “The projects with Wagner are a perfect fit for our skills, strategy and knowledge; we excel with tight time frames because of our deep software experience and time-tested delivery methodology.”
