Cerca Technology is proud to partner with another world-class company to optimize its operations with the Infor WMS in Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados and Belize
In December 2006, Grupo Unicomer acquired the operations of Courts in the Caribbean. This brand of English origin has more than 160 years of experience and worldwide recognition in the home appliances and household goods sector.
Due to the success and operation that Infor SCE has had in the operation of Unicomer in Costa Rica, the group has made the decision to unify the logistic language of its companies in a project that will gradually involve 5 distribution centers located in Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados and Belize.
Courts implementation project
Courts, founded in the region 60 years ago, is the largest retailer of furniture, appliances and household goods in the Caribbean. The 93 stores in operation in the 11 countries and the opening of its last two stores in the city of New York, United States are a sample of this.
As for its operation, Courts has a local ERP and due to the lack of software for its supply chain, logistics processes are mostly manual, which has made it difficult to measure the real cost of the operation regarding sales.
René Armando Molina, Logistics Project Manager of the Unicomer Group, indicated that the increase in productivity, the total use of the winery, the reduction of time in picking processes and in general the control of the entire chain, were motivators to continue the work that had begun in Central America.
The project that began in February 2019 at the Guyana distribution center and is estimated to end in the first half of 2021 with the successful implementation in the 5 countries.

“The work carried out with the implementation of Infor SCE in the Costa Rican operation, and the proximity to the Unicomer Group work team, allowed us to become the technological ally to optimize the logistics operation of its distribution centers throughout the region. We started this project with the clear objective of optimizing the operation of Guyana and continuing with the implementations throughout the Caribbean”
