"I'll focus on a recent initiative that's been a long time in planning and execution. That initiative is the establishment implementation of a standard Canon warehouse management system across our entire distribution network. You can imagine the challenge of implementing a standard system across five different 3PLs and Canon facilities.
We recently completed implementation at all 12 DCs, and we continue to refine the system to meet our business needs.
Previously, we worked with a number of different warehouse management systems, from best-in-class to unique homemade solutions in some locations. We went out and selected a middle-market WMS software from a WMS provider. That was very scalable. We could scale it from 10-man operations to 100 people operations in our larger DCs."
