Appleton, a manufacturer of electrical products for hazardous and non-hazardous locations, is finalizing implementation of a cutting-edge logistics software system in its Memphis, Tennessee national warehouse.

The new system will provide Appleton personnel, as well as the company's representatives and distributors, real-time access of order information and inventory flow as a way of improve customer service and overcome inter-enterprise management challenges.

"We have thoroughly modernized our national warehouse so that we have visibility of critical logistics information up and down the supply chain," said George Mulligan, Vice President Sales Operations, EGS Electrical Group, who noted that the system is currently available to Appleton's customer service representatives, manufacturer representatives and field engineers.

Mulligan expects Appleton distributors will have access to the system in the very near future.
