Candock & Tecsys Inc.

Dock manufacturer Candock is using Omni WMS from Tecsys Inc. The Omni WMS was deployed with Tecsys’ rapid implementation methodology. Founded in 1997, Candock has a network of 90 distributors, with business operations across five continents. As the organization expanded over 25 years, it became clear that the existing manual system was no longer sufficient to meet growing demands. In order to keep up with the increasing complexity and scale of its operations, Candock recognized the need for a more advanced system that could simplify workflows, as well as evolve and scale with the company’s growth.
