Mothercare and Barbour sign up to Amazon-style management system

More than 100 retailers including Mothercare and Barbour have signed up to Peoplevox, which claims to provide a warehouse management system to compete with Amazon.

The business said it has “levelled the playing field” for retailers with the service it offers which includes real-time “live” inventory levels from the warehouse to a mobile site allowing customers to see exactly what stock is available at that moment. Other features include integration with ecommerce platforms and other applications including marketplace, order and carrier management software.

Peoplevox has secured $6m (£3.9m) funding from and Farfetch investor Index Ventures and will use the funds to expand its team in London and internationally.

The business’ cloud-based SaaS solution is designed to manage all the processes that occur in a warehouse, from receiving an order to the point of despatch and is four-times faster compared to traditional warehouses.

Jonathan Bellwood, founder and chief executive of Peoplevox, said: “Moving pallets to stores is very different from sending many parcels to multiple destinations. Our software is already helping companies run their ecommerce warehouse far more effectively, enabling them to compete with Amazon for order fulfilment efficiency.”
