Spring ISD was tasked with sourcing a new Warehouse Management System that not only met the unique needs of our Distribution Services Department but that also fit within the parameters of our budget constraints. Atlantis Consulting group was able to provide a customized warehouse management solution that we seamlessly integrated into our current processes and implemented in the short span of 3 months. The Atlantis team took the time to learn our district processes and understand our previous challenges and then customize their solution to fit our needs. Care was taken in a phased training approach as the team created a test site specifically for training on each process step. Prior to go-live, Atlantis provided detailed procedure and instructional manuals and even conducted two site visits from Canada to Houston, Texas to ensure success. Our end users have commented on the system’s ease of use and the increased functionality while reducing manual processes and paperwork. The Spring ISD team has been most pleased with the hands-on service provided by the Atlantis group as we have been provided direct contact numbers for questions and customer service. Overall, the implementation has been vastly successful!
