Solution empowers warehouse and logistics professionals with automation-aware supply chain of the future
MINNEAPOLIS and NASHVILLE, Tennessee, Oct. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- HighJump, a global provider of supply chain solutions, today announces the availability of the HighJump Warehouse Control System integrated with the HighJump Warehouse Management System. Designed from two decades of successful deployments worldwide, the HighJump WCS provides supply chain professionals with a comprehensive solution suite to fully capitalize on the connected and automated warehouse of tomorrow.
"The HighJump WCS is a testament to the possibilities our relationship with Körber AG has for warehousing and logistics worldwide," said Chad Collins, chief executive officer at HighJump. "This is just one of many additions to our solutions to come based on the capabilities and the experience of our sister companies throughout Körber Logistics Systems."
Supply chain professionals are rapidly automating operations to handle ecommerce, shorter delivery windows and enhanced consumer expectations. Technologies to streamline new business models and stressed logistical systems due to these trends, along with a shrinking workforce, are key to maintaining a competitive edge. The HighJump WCS enables this.
With the HighJump WCS, businesses seamlessly integrate and manage the latest automation technologies, such as autonomous mobile robots, while gaining real-time visibility to enhance complex workflows. The HighJump WCS works with any material handling equipment (MHE) provider. This creates a single point of data and communication amongst MHE, WCS and WMS. Supply chain professionals have the insight and agility to adapt to high volumes, single line orders, seasonality and beyond. The result is a supply chain that is truly "automation aware," always knowing how, when and where to use future technologies to scale for success.
"The HighJump WCS is uniquely built by WCS experts - based on proven deployments in highly automated facilities across the globe," said Sean Elliott, chief technology officer at HighJump. "The reduced costs and maximized capacity, throughput and productivity from automation-aware workflows equip supply chains to meet and exceed the expectations of the consumer of tomorrow."
This is one of many recent innovative moves from HighJump. This includes the acquisition of Voiteq and Cirrus Logistics for voice-directed warehousing as well as advanced facility optimization and simulation.
As an add-on or stand-alone solution, the HighJump WCS is available to new and existing customers worldwide. CSCMP Edge attendees can discuss this with HighJump experts at stand #713 from September 30–October 3, 2018.
