Timax is a courier and a shipping service which operates out of Mississauga, ON. In 2009, the company expanded its services to housing goods for its clients prior to shipment. As accuracy and organization are of utmost importance to any warehousing intensive business, Timax realized that it needed a comprehensive inventory system for its growing business. This realization prompted the company to adopt Clear Spider.
Why Clear Spider?
Corporate Accounts Manager, Todd Nelson, investigated and interviewed four potential inventory solution providers. He stated, “I chose Clear Spider because I liked the staff; they were knowledgeable about what I needed. I found that Clear Spider was very reasonably priced. It just seemed like a good idea.”
Mr. Nelson states, “For order tracking, it’s highly efficient and effective. It really helps with communication between me and my guys in the warehouse and my guys in dispatch”. Additionally, he is convinced that Clear Spider will continue to serve Timax as the business and its services expand, “I also really like Clear Spider because it allows for growth. There’s a bunch of stuff that it can do that we currently don’t use it for, but as the business gets bigger Clear Spider will be able to adapt to our needs.” What Mr. Nelson likes most about Clear Spider is how easy it is to implement. When describing Clear Spider’s facility of use, he declared that “It’s awesome. I love using it. I have no complaints. It’s solid, it’s stable, and it gives me no grief.” With Clear Spider, Mr. Nelson spends no time worrying about his inventory and he can concentrate on making sure that Timax’s customers get what they need when they need it.
