An international freight forwarder based in Witham, Essex has put a TALE Grant towards the purchase of a new Warehouse Management System.

The company identified the need for software to replace manually driven methods and improve control systems and accuracy.  An added benefit is the ability of customers to track the progress of their shipments.

TALE Business Support Facilitator Patrick Maynard visited the company HQ and advised on potential improvements to the way the business used its data as part of the logistics operation.

"Unisystems wouldn't have been able to fund the software without the TALE Grant - it covered 40% of the cost"

TALE is part funded by the ERDF - over £500k of grants have already been awarded from a total fund of £1.9M  TALE Grants can fund 40% of a project cost, up to £60,000 per business.  Expenditure can include software including subscriptions, tablets and devices, consultancy and new staff.
