PCCW Solutions was appointed to build the comprehensive warehouse management system for William Marsh. The solutions were implemented to build the world-class sanitary ware quality assurance center in Hangzhou, with 15,000m² for handling over 20,000 pieces of item per month. With the RFID-enabled storage and inventory management solution developed for ceramic-tile products, William Marsh’s warehouse is now equipped with the means to automatically and effectively pick good-quality items in FIFO manner for shipment.
