WISE Leader – MARK MAASKANT – February 2018

MARK MAASKANT Corporate Warehouse Systems Manager – WINDHORST

Mark Maaskant has been Windhorst’s Corporate Warehouse Systems manager since 2015. Mark was instrumental in researching the available supply chain systems on the market and determining the best solution for automating the Windhorst warehousing operations. Since Mark joined the company, Windhorst has become an even more successful 3PL company and has continued to grow in this very competitive marketplace. For this achievement, Royal 4 Systems is pleased to induct Mark Maaskant as the newest member of the WISE leader’s program.


Quote from Mark Maaskant:

“Windhorst chose Royal 4’s WISE solution after looking at several other 3PL systems in the market. Our goal was to find a Warehouse Management System that matches our corporate strategy of being able to fulfill very specific customer needs and being able to quickly adapt when these needs change. We had interviews with nine other WMS providers, but none of these had the flexibility we were looking for. The main goal of an IT system is to be a strategic asset that supports you to continuously improve your processes and achieve strategic goals, WISE does this for us. The value for WISE compared to cost is outstanding, and Royal 4 has proved repeatedly that they can support our company’s warehouse management needs. Thus, resulting in our continued partnership with them.”
