Empower your warehouse; Control every aspect with precision.
Software has contributed to dramatically optimizing warehouse operations, automating various processes to improve efficiency, accuracy, and overall productivity. The main goal is to streamline the process of receiving, storing, and shipping goods, reducing the need for manual labor and minimizing human error. Software typically integrates with various systems, such as barcode scanning devices, inventory management systems, and shipping systems, to provide real-time data and analytics on the movement of goods.
Why automate with software?
Due to minor throughput requirements, unsatisfactory ROI, or lesser labor costs, many warehouses still rely partially or entirely on manual operations.
Person-to-goods operations can be supported by warehouse management systems (WMS) managing technology such as RF devices or voice terminals.
High throughput, labor, and storage cube optimization requirements support the case for automated systems. Automation can manage warehouse functions, such as transportation (conveyors, AMRs, AGVs), storage and retrieval (cranes, shuttles, VLMs), “goods-to-person” tasks (at dedicated manned stations), and palletization/depalletization.
What are WCS, WMS, & WES?
WMS is a software solution that helps organizations manage their warehouse or distribution operations more efficiently. The primary goal is to optimize the movement and storage of goods within a warehouse, improving accuracy, efficiency, and productivity.
WMS typically integrates with other systems such as ERP systems, transportation management systems, and barcode scanning devices, to provide real-time data on the movement of goods.
WCS is a software solution that manages and controls the movement of goods and materials within a warehouse or distribution center. It acts as the central hub for all material handling equipment (MHE) in a warehouse, coordinating the actions of conveyors, automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), sortation systems, robots, and other equipment to optimize the flow of goods.
A WCS integrates with other systems, such as warehouse management systems (WMS), enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, and barcode scanning devices, to provide real-time data and control over the movement of goods.
WES is a type of software that manages and executes the operations within a warehouse or distribution center. It acts as the central control system for all material handling equipment (MHE) and processes within a warehouse, coordinating the actions of conveyors, automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), sortation systems, robots, and other equipment to ensure efficient and accurate order fulfillment.
A WES integrates with other systems, such as Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, and barcode scanning devices, to provide real-time data and control over the movement of goods.
Certain functionalities of WMS, WCS, and WES come together to form a custom software solution based on a customer’s specific needs.
