A game changer in distribution software and warehouse automation software
The challenges in distribution – cost, throughput, and customer service – have never been greater. To meet those challenges, companies need a new set of tools more aligned with the dynamic nature of today’s order fulfillment environment and that provide next-generation capabilities to optimize and orchestrate end-to-end distribution processes. Some of these include warehouse automation systems and other technologies to provide the efficiency needed to stay ahead.
First in its class - WMS meets WES.
Softeon is the only Warehouse Management System (WMS) provider to integrate with a powerful Warehouse Execution System (WES) to offer a robust total warehouse automation solution.
Our turn-key systems can be deployed as a stand-alone, in any environment. Together, the WMS and WES can enable companies to meet customer demand and service commitments at the least possible operating costs. The Softeon Warehouse Execution System provides visibility, orchestration and optimization of order picking and related processes, which include maximizing materials handling system utilization, leveraging capabilities far above what is available today - even in advanced warehouse management systems.
In stand-alone mode, the WES can work with almost any existing WMS, from ERP to legacy to best-of-breed providers, with flexible integration and process models. Uniquely, the Softeon Warehouse Execution System delivers significant value, not only for facilities with fully automated processes (Warehouse Automation Systems) but also in operations with medium levels of warehouse automation or even completely manual processes.
New WES capabilities include:
- Real-time visibility to throughput, bottlenecks and events
- Direct management and optimization of picking sub-systems
- Advanced, configurable optimization for order batching, release, picking and replenishment
- Workload balancing to maximize equipment utilization and flow
- Automated order release based on service commitment, shipping schedules and real-time condition monitoring
- Use of simulation to plan, re-plan and allocate resources
