Casey’s was using a homegrown warehouse management system for many years. In 2014, a decision was made to replace it after it was clear that limitations in the system were hindering business growth. Maintaining and supporting the system required significant resources and time. Most importantly, the existing legacy system was not designed to support more than one distribution center.
The need to upgrade the warehouse management system, along with other systems, became critical when the decision was made to open a second distribution center. It was important that this new system be robust and flexible, rules-driven and easily integrated into the existing IT infrastructure.
