GSK Pharmaceuticals gets a boost as they go live with Proteus WMS

GSK Pharmaceuticals have gone live with Proteus Warehouse Management Solution. GSK, one of the world’s leading research-based pharmaceutical and healthcare companies, was looking for a third party Logistics Company to store and ship their products on behalf of their Ireland operation, and a warehouse management solution to control stock movements and ensure delivery.

After a selection process was carried out they chose PRL Group, a large third party logistics provider in Dublin to store their products and the Proteus Warehouse Management Solution to control their processes within the warehouse.

GSK's products are sold in more than 150 countries around the world, with operations in 119 countries. They make prescription medicines, vaccines, over-the-counter medicines, and consumer healthcare products. Their business accounts for 6.3% of the world’s pharmaceutical market. They have strong positions in several therapeutic areas including anti-infectives, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular, depression, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and urology.

Proteus Warehouse Management Solution is used to ship prescription medicines. Alan Downey, GSK Operations Manager is delighted at the way the project was delivered. “The commitment shown to deliver the project on time by the Proteus team was second to none,” said Alan. “The Proteus team of Tony, Lynne, Mike and John and the PRL Group team all did a brilliant job, ensuring that the implementation and live operation went smoothly.” Alan continued, “The post go-live support was also outstanding.”

Proteus MD, Howard Turvey said, “We are proud of the comments we have received from Alan. Our team are talented individuals who are dedicated to delivering projects on time. Our close partnership approach with PRL and GSK has produced an outstanding result.”
