Moving Forward with Factory @ Q-Mover

This month seen Birmingham based wholesaler Q-Mover expand their system with an upgrade and Season Factory system.

After running an Office system since 2015 company owner Graham Dolman approached Datos to supply a solution for dispatching product with goals to reduce the paper trail and increase accuracy and efficiency.

Season Factory for dispatch

Season Factory is a robust yet flexible system and can be deployed on static touch screen terminals linked to scales or on tablet devices. In the case of Q-Mover they have decided to push ahead with a tablet implementation to give their busy dispatch area a bit more freedom to move given the portable nature of tablets.

Replacing pick notes with real time communications

The tablets will take the place of physically printed pick notes. Operators can see exactly what orders are needed to go out the door the very instant they are submitted in the Office. This real time communication between office and factory dramatically increases efficiency as nothing has to be printed or passed between departments. Operators can filter the information on screen in various ways to ensure they are focused on picking the right products. Filters include by department, by customer, by date, by route and more.

Facilitating change to ensure accuracy

We know that things can change in an instant and so does Season Factory. Operators can replace products, set statuses on products such as awaiting stock, view photo specifications and more. When coupled with real time updates your customers are guaranteed 100% accuracy with each order.

Increased visibility

Operators in the office system get real time updates as product is picked. Drill into detail on the story of the order or identify at a glance the status of each order with the easy to understand “traffic light,” colour coding system. A full audit trail of who did what, where, when and how long it took runs in the background and is available as a report at any given time.


Lock down the system to ensure operators can only access information relative to their role. Have each operator log in securely with a password to ensure accuracy of operation and analysis.

Room to grow

Season Factory doesn’t end with dispatch. Capable of catering for ALL of your processes including booking goods in, real time stock control with stock check facility, Barcode label printing & scanning, full traceability & HACCP, processing using the Jobs system, Recipe module and more.

We look forward to pushing ahead with Graham and the rest of the team at Q – Mover. If you think your business could benefit from any of the above get in touch today for a full demonstration. Send an enquiry to sales@datos.co.uk or give us a call on +44 28 38 36
