2001 -June 2003






  • Warehousing
  • Apparel and accessories Industry
  • B2B / B2C fulfillment
  • EDI and Supply Chain Management
  • Warehouse Automation
  • Outsourcing IT services to clients

Created a lucrative IT business: “Waitex Information Systems, Inc.” for a major warehousing and fulfillment company and apparel manufacturer with over 800 employees and 2.5 million ft. of warehouse facilities. Reorganized, set up strategies and long-term goals for the company's overall technological infrastructure. Built core system on clustered Windows 2000 advanced servers with load balancing, HP SAN storage and a farm of MSSQL 2000 databases. Used custom supply chain management software, constantly adapting it to suit the needs of our clients (ASP, VB, C#, SQL and ColdFusion). Implemented and designed both hardware and software solutions to create an end-to-end, customer oriented technology service company to provide complete supply chain management environment,================ including integrated EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) services, customer relations, internet ordering and fulfillment services. Spearheaded operations and policies for the systems group in order to streamline contact management for our clients and trade partners (retail clients such as Saks, Bloomingdales, K-mart, etc). Acted as consultants to our clients and their international production/manufacturing partners. Waitex Information Systems, Inc. became a separate business unit, offering a wide variety of services to wholesalers needing back-office and technology support, such as: fully integrated direct-to-warehouse order fulfillment/EDI/data processing, VPN remote access to our supply chain management software, web access (Citrix Metaframe and 'Waitex Warp' - an in house development effort) tracking goods and process orders, picks and pack, allocations, invoices and inventory as well as B2B, B2C web design/hosting and internet fulfillment. Provisioned all DSL/T1 for high availability and high-speed backbone access to Waitex and its clients. Wrote all technology contracts, services, marketing material and strategies, as well as negotiated and met with all clients. Designed topology, architecture and wiring of new LAN / WAN for Waitex's new corporate headquarters relocation at 135 West 36 th Street . Wired the building (all 39 floors) with fiber and redundant Cat6 at the core, dual gigabit access on each floor and 100/100mps delivery to all desktops. Wrote all specifications for IP telephony and data access to service all building/tenants/affiliated companies and VPN/Web/Citrix remote access clients. Planned and coordinated move of existing office Data Center to the new location without affecting real-time data access and business flow. Created timelines and ramp-up process for construction, mechanical/HVAC, wiring to new Data center including switch (Cisco 4000) testing on core and edge switches, VLan configurations and server-to-server migration. Waitex's technology department was losing over $20,000 a month prior to my setting up a new infrastructure. As I left the company, the IT department alone was grossing $100,000/month for the mother company and the gross profit for the Waitex IT was over $1,000,000 for the year 2003, our second year in operation.


Warp: Internet based supply management system, direct order fulfillmentto warehous with full inventory tracking from production to QOH at warehouse. Key Contribution: Within two years, Waitex Information Systems grossed $1.5-million ( U.S. ) in revenues.
