WISE Leader – Paul Lewis – August 2017

Paul UK Mail

Paul Lewis IT Integration Manager – UK Mail

Paul Lewis has been with UK Mail since 2010. Paul’s background and experience helped in the evaluation of the then current available systems and eventual choice of the WISE WMS system for UK Mail. Paul has also been instrumental in assisting the Royal 4 implementation team in all aspects of the discovery and installation process, insuring a smooth and seamless transition to go-live. For his outstanding achievement Royal 4 Systems is please to induct Paul Lewis as the newest member of the elite WISE leaders program.

Quote from Paul Lewis:

“UK Mail chose Royal 4’s WMS solution because we felt they understood some of our unique requirements. First, we required a system that would be able to scale out to all of our locations. Royal 4 demonstrated how they could handle this requirement by developing a pilot test system that simulated the WISE UK Mail system as it pertained to multiple locations. Second, because we handle mail the importance of security features that we could manipulate was extremely important to us and our partner companies. We realized that Royal 4 understood service and support and these elements were given the utmost attention. Because of this and other consideration, UK Mail is a dedicated partner of Royal 4’s service and technology. We are constantly looking for new and better technology, and I can highly recommend Royal 4 for this.”
