Manhattan Helps Tarsus Distribution Boost Efficiency By 60%
Tarsus Distribution is the longest-established IT distributor in South Africa. The company sought to improve its long-established solutions and processes through the Manhattan SCALE solution. The company also chose to partner with Supply Chain Junction to leapfrog legacy and grow the business by developing their unique services in the market. This investment has resulted in a 3PL methodology which leveraged existing assets and infrastructure while adding valuable services to end clients.
Tarsus is now well-positioned for long-term success and has proven that it can implement 3PL customers in timelines in accordance with international standards, with high marks for customer satisfaction.
Tarsus Distribution had a decades-old warehousing system, outdated processes and practices and needed to plan for rapid change in the technology distribution industry.
With Manhattan SCALE warehouse management system, and Supply Chain Junction as the implementation partner, Tarsus was about to bring its customer-centric business model to life by streamlining processes and improving customer service.
