PathGuide Technologies Gains Momentum with Electrical Distributors

E.B. Horsman & Son, Viking Electric, and J.H. Larson Electrical Select Latitude Warehouse Management System

Mukilteo, Wash. July 10, 2007  PathGuide Technologies, a leading provider of warehouse automation solutions for wholesale and industrial distributors, today announced that electrical distributors J.H. Larson, Viking Electric (a subsidiary of Sonepar USA), and E.B. Horsman & Son have selected the PathGuide Latitude Warehouse Management System to automate operations for greater productivity and efficiency.

"Our productivity and inventory control has really improved with Latitude" said Roy Bragg, operations manager at E.B. Horsman & Son. "We were able to increase our picks per day without adding any new staff. We have also cut our inventory-related mistakes to 1 out of every 1,750 lines; this fact alone has given us the ability to better serve our customers."

Latitude is a software suite that automates warehousing and distribution to provide real-time online information about all inventories. Latitude automates all operations from receiving and order picking to manifesting and truck route/stop management. It integrates seamlessly with ERP business systems such as Microsoft Dynamics, Activant, J.D. Edwards and Oracle. Latitude is designed to help industrial distributors pick, pack and ship orders faster and more accurately, resulting in greater productivity and profitability.

 "We're seeing tremendous growth in the electrical distributor market," said Eric Allais, CEO, PathGuide Technologies. "Latitude offers compelling functionality and value for distributors of all sizes, from the world's biggest names to independent, single-location businesses."
