Softeon Warehouse Software Suite
Broad Portfolio of Warehouse Software Solutions Delivers Powerful, End-to-End Capabilities to Reduce Distribution Center Costs and Increase Throughput
There continues to be strong interest and demand for warehouse software solutions driven by a number of factors, including ecommerce fulfillment and the need to reduce distribution costs while improving service.
When most consider the term “warehouse software,” their thoughts first turn to Warehouse Management Systems, or WMS. That makes sense – WMS is the foundation application in the warehouse software ecosystem.
But there are a number of other complementary warehouses solutions, available as part of a full Warehouse Management Software system deployment or often as standalone capabilities.
Those additional warehouse software modules include:
Yard Management System (YMS)
Management trailers and yard inventories, with a real-time, graphical, “drag and drop” interface. Also includes web-based appointment scheduling, facility check-in and check-out, and a number of additional functionalities. Yard inventories are visible to the WMS and can be considered in soft inventory allocation.
Powerful solution for slotting products in forward pick areas or other story locations based on a number of factors, including velocity, forecasts, affinity, and more. Supports automated re-warehousing, and provides an easy to use interface that separates from other slotting solutions. Includes cost-benefit analysis on potential slotting change. Includes extensive support for dynamic slotting.
Unlike other WMS providers, Softeon offers robust parcel management capabilities that come standard with the WMS. Our parcel solution was built to scale, successfully supporting customers with huge volumes. Support dynamic rate look-up or real-time rate shopping. Certified support for UPS, FedEx, USPS, DHL, Purolator and other carriers. Allows functions such as carrier compliant label printing at any point in the picking-packing process. Full support for print and apply and weigh scale integration - Softeon advantage.
Software includes basic support for returns processing as part of the core WMS. The Returns Management system provided additional, advanced reverse logistics support. The key is a flexible rules engine foundation to define returns processes based on item, condition, vendor, customer behavior, RMA, and more. Includes advanced capabilities, such refurbishing electronic products.
In addition to this broad array of warehouse software solutions, Softeon’s supply chain platform also includes:
- Transportation Management System (TMS)

- Traditional Order Management System (OMS)

- Direct Store Delivery (DSD)
