Podcast: Softeon Discusses WMS and WES and Introduces Integrated Solution

Softeon introduced a new integrated warehouse management system (WMS) and warehouse execution system (WES) 

03.17.2020

The combined solution provides visibility, orchestration and optimization of order picking and related processes, including maximizing materials handling system utilization. Uniquely, the solution also greatly benefits more manual DCs.

Softeon’s WMS and WES solutions are available as stand-alone platforms, but are now also being deployed together as a powerful Warehouse Management and Execution System.

Robotic Software Takes Control

Just like WES, robot operating systems are undergoing a transformation that may change the way we manage distribution centers.

Labor Management: Stuff that works

There’s been more than enough whining about the availability and stability of labor in DCs and warehouses. Ignoring that path, about a third of facilities have put in place tools and practices that motivate and engage people. Everyone else has no choice but to follow or fall behind.

Talk to people about the current state of labor in warehouses and DCs, and you might be surprised by what they have to say. The conversation has changed lately, but not in the way you’re hoping.

Warehouse Execution Systems 2.0

The first generation of warehouse execution systems (WES) brought a new level of orchestration to automated warehouses. The next generation promises to bring a new level of optimization and productivity to the conventional warehouse. Get ready for WES 2.0.

What's in store for 2020

Technology continues to be the driving force, but it's evolving.

01.01.2020

In early December, a researcher asked me what were going to be the solutions driving the supply chain 20 years from now.  To be honest, I didn’t have a clue. I think back to stories I was writing less than a decade ago, and none of them predicted the rise in robotics or the emergence of things like artificial intelligence or the Internet of Things. Then e-commerce fulfillment kicked into high gear, and we were all off to the races. 

Pharma races toward its future

12.10.2019

Whether inside the four walls or between locations, the pharma supply chain is becoming increasingly complicated. The reasons range from new Federal regulations to increasing demand for delivering more drugs faster than ever before. This is a game changer.

Talk to the people in the know about trends in pharma these days, and it becomes clear pretty quickly that things are in flux. And we’re not talking a tweak here, a tweak there, either.

These shifts include:

Understanding the Options for Cloud WMS Deployment

Although Warehouse Management Systems were Late to the Cloud Party, Adoption is Now High – Know Your Options

By Dinesh Dongre, Softeon

For a variety of reasons, the Warehouse Management System (WMS) sector were late to the party in terms of Cloud deployment versus other areas of supply chain software.

Knock at the door: AI and IoT are ready for your warehouse

10.14.2019

by Gary Forger

Artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things are making their initial forays into warehouse operations. The expected outcome is DCs able to respond dynamically to current supply chain conditions not pre-set rules. Look for newfound flexibility and an ability to respond to specific customer demands.

The Multiple Dimensions of Cloud WMS Deployment

07.09.2019

Although warehouse management systems were late to the cloud party, software pricing and deployment options are driving adoption.

We’re seeing about 60% of new WMS implementations being Cloud-based, with that number continuing to head higher. Despite the rapid growth of supply chain technology delivered in in the Cloud generally and for WMS specifically, there are often still a lot of uncertainties among potential adopters. I see it time after time. To sort out the options, the following discussion may help. Read on...

It's All About WES in Logistics Management Article

06.06.2019

Warehouse execution system (WES) software is becoming more important to automated warehouses that need to manage machines, people and inventory resources against a high-velocity stream of orders and tight delivery commitments. WES can be more than a one-function solution for orchestrating zones “inside the four walls,” and can instead operate as a complex hybrid that paces work to logistics events.
