The Gilbert Company Chooses Open Sky Group and JDA Software WMS & WLM Solutions

New Systems Will Elevate and Expand Retail Customer Service

RALEIGH, N.C. & SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--()--Open Sky Group (Open Sky – www.openskygroup.com), a consulting company specializing in the implementation of Warehouse Management System (WMS) software, and JDA Software, Inc. have partnered to bring The Gilbert Company, a leading third party logistics provider (3PL) specializing in the retail sector, a comprehensive supply chain software solution that includes JDA Warehouse Management, JDA Warehouse Labor Management, JDA Inventory Visibility, JDA Third Party Billing and JDA Parcel, deployed by Open Sky Group.

The Gilbert Company has been an established warehouse, distribution and transportation services provider to the retail industry for more than 25 years. The company serves customers nationwide across three market segments: big box, specialty apparel and footwear and their vendors. "Superior customer service levels, anticipated growth and the ability to stay ahead of the retailers requirements were key drivers,” said Richard Gilbert, owner of The Gilbert Company. “We looked at many WMS products and implementers over several months. We chose Open Sky Group because of their talent – they are attentive, responsive and very knowledgeable. We chose JDA WMS because of its robust and adaptable features. We’re confident we’re in good hands with the combination of Open Sky Group and JDA, and we’re looking forward to successful go-lives on the east and west coasts this year.”

“We have a long history of 3PL experience, so we understand Gilbert’s business needs very well, and know exactly where their evolving needs are and how to best solve them,” says Curt Sardeson, president of Open Sky Group. “Our ability to quickly and accurately configure and implement a WMS with complex client billing requirements was a critical factor in our selection, and we’re looking forward to doing just that for The Gilbert Company, enabling them to better serve current customers, as well as launch new business more quickly and easily.”

Because of its JDA Authorized Reseller status, Open Sky worked with Gilbert to acquire the necessary JDA licenses. Companies like Open Sky are selected as JDA Resellers because they are equipped with the full range of marketing, sales, training, industry and technical resources to meet client needs.

“Authorized resellers represent an extremely valuable resource for JDA and its customer base,” said Thad Zylka, regional vice president, JDA Software. “Resellers like Open Sky Group are instrumental to JDA’s success and we are delighted to partner with them to jointly provide JDA’s leading software solutions to The Gilbert Company.”
