With over 23,000 clients, 400 communities, 7,300 staff and over 1,000 sites in Australia, Life Without Barriers (LWB) is most certainly one of Australia’s largest non-for-profit organisation. The Life Without Barriers team specialise in providing people with the services and assistance they need – disability care, foster care and aged care – so they can achieve their goals and maximise their opportunities to participate as fully in society as they wish.
ADSone’s initial relationship with Life Without Barriers started in March 2020, when they required procurement and supply – in large volumes – of various PPE supplies for the 25,000 staff and clients across Australia. Our logistical management system and seamless integration was the solution that helped Life Without Barriers distribute multiple PPE products across the nation.
However, once we started to deliver the PPE supplies, it became evident there were some major fragmentations within their distribution network. Inefficiencies such as using their media partners and internal resources as distribution houses for their PPE suppliers, and no consolidated stock management or freight management system meant that the team was working twice as hard in achieving their KPIs.
Knowing that there was something to be done, we worked alongside the Life Without Barries team and structured a holistic solution for their logistical management. The solution was a centralised product and order management portal, that gave them freight tracking for delivery and centralised warehousing.
After just one run through and a quick tutorial, Life Without Barriers seamlessly moved and integrated their entire distribution system with ADSone.
The move to ADSone meant that they now have the benefits of:
- A simple interface for product, stock and order management. This was achieved by using iCumulus.Cloud system
- Easy single point tracking with branded tracking page
- Expert, real human, personnel on hand and ready to help when needed
- Dynamic distribution network, ready to scale up and down as needed
Our relationship with Life Without Barriers is built on our ongoing commitment and success in delivering on a number of requirements whether it be in a state of emergency, distribution or in-house logistical management.
ADSone proudly handles all of Life Without Barriers PPE distribution and is the primary logistics provider for their entire network across Australia.
