Bespoke Systems



 Jack Richards have designed and had created, various bespoke systems to cater for the different services they offer.

Within Warehousing there has been various systems developed. Firstly a stock control package was developed, that includes the ability to scan pallets. Resulting in identifying the whereabouts of any pallet at any point. In addition to this a freight management package was developed that allowed staff the plan the incoming and outgoing freight.

Pallet shifter had a system created that can provide customers / potential customers, with the ability to receive an instant quote. Then if they are happy with the quote, the web system includes the ability to place an order. Within this system there is also automatic confirmation, therefore when an order is placed the customer receives and automatic confirmation and invoiced at a later date. Using this same system the customer can track the whereabouts of their pallets at any point due to the real time pallet scanning system.

Jack Richards are currently in the process of looking at in-cab technology, to give drivers instant planning and also customers instant feedback
