International Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) specialist Indigo Software today announced that Malaysian based Valser Oil & Gas has selected Indigo WMS for four of its’ business units: Valser Engineering & Services, VOSS Engineering, Valser Energy and Valser Flow Solutions.

Headquartered in Malaysia, Valser Oil & Gas is a “One-Stop-Solution-Centre” for the supply and service of valves, actuators and controls for exploration & production equipment in the oil & gas, energy, maritime, defence, port and petrochemical industries.  Valser Oil & Gas is constantly researching, developing and implementing new technologies, products and services that will enhance its capabilities to better serve its clients.

Valser Oil & Gas needed a centralised, real-time inventory system to gain control and visibility of its extensive asset base, plus improve business management across the company’s rapidly expanding business interests as a whole.  The company’s inventory is complex and high value, spanning multiple categories including finished goods, sub-assembly, assets, service parts and consumables.

“By implementing a WMS, we hope to bring immediate impact and value to our business.  We will be more efficient and more in control of our own facilities and at the end of the day, we want to ensure our clients will benefit from it.  Together we will make it happen!” says Kevin Tan, Technical Director, Valser Oil & Gas.

Valser Oil & Gas commissioned a detailed evaluation to identify a suitable best of breed WMS solution to be implemented at five of its warehouses located in Peninsula and East Malaysia.  This would replace their current manual system based on Excel spreadsheets and paper records.  The decision to select Indigo Software was based on Indigo’s extensive experience in providing WMS solutions for the past 40 years in the manufacturing and industrial sectors, the company’s well established support operations in the Asia Pacific region and the opportunity for Valser Oil & Gas to learn from the real-world experiences of Indigo Software’s global team of supply chain consultants.

Indigo WMS will provide Valser Oil & Gas with a centralised real-time warehouse management solution delivering significant accuracy, visibility and efficiency benefits for its warehousing operations.  This will ensure its warehouses always have an up to date stock balance together with a clear audit trail of all inventory movements.  This will eliminate costly inventory management issues such as overstocking, item obsolescence, undocumented stockouts, lost or misplaced stock items due to inaccurate location recording and shrinkage due to wastage or pilfering.  Indigo WMS will also be integrated with Valser Oil & Gas’ ERP system for real-time inventory visibility across the organisation.

“Indigo WMS provides a very good fit for Valser Oil & Gas and brings a proven track record of managing the complex warehousing needs of manufacturing companies like ours.  Having real-time control will deliver immediate benefits and we are expecting a swift return on investment,” says Yusri Mohamad, Group COO, Valser Oil & Gas.

Mike Hill, Chief Sales Officer at Indigo Software says, “We are delighted to be working with Valser Oil & Gas.  This represents a great win for Indigo Software in Malaysia and is more evidence of our increasing customer footprint in the Asia Pacific warehouse management software market.”
