Retail-Week-Award-630-380.jpgParagon Software Systems has been shortlisted by the Retail Week Supply Chain Awards in recognition of the role its order fulfilment software has played in supporting Argos’ Fast Track store collection and same-day delivery service.

Paragon HDX dynamically plans delivery slots, so retailers can offer customers complete confidence in their chosen time windows whether collecting in-store or receiving a home delivery. The feasibility of these windows is based on real-time availability, using both fleet capacity and the proximity of the customer to available stock, with Paragon HDX continually re-optimising the routes and schedules as every order comes in.

William Salter Managing Director of Paragon Software Systems commented: “Being shortlisted recognises the important role Paragon HDX played in the creation of Argos’ ground-breaking and industry-leading fulfilment operation. We have worked in partnership with a number of our retail customers to build a modular order fulfilment system that allows retailers to offer delivery services with choice, convenience and certainty.”

Paragon has been shortlisted for the Technology Initiative category. The winner will be announced in September at the annual awards ceremony in London.
