HighJump views inclusion and rankings as testament to company's innovations for the warehouse of the future
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- HighJump, a global provider of supply chain solutions, announces its ranking within the four highest in all use cases spanning simple to highly automated warehouse operations in Gartner's August 2018 Critical Capabilities for Warehouse Management Systems report. To HighJump, the results exemplify the company's dedication to empowering companies worldwide with the digital, connected and automated supply chain of the future.
Today's consumer has ever-higher expectations for purchasing convenience, delivery speed, choice and adaptability. This spells greater complexity for warehousing and logistics. As a result, supply chain professionals need solutions to handle new business models, stressed traditional logistics systems and deconsolidating networks. HighJump makes this possible.
HighJump's Warehouse Management System (WMS) scales to meet the unique needs of small-to-medium-sized businesses to complex global enterprises. This includes seamlessly integrating with existing systems, while providing a foundation and control for new automation technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics, blockchain, IoT and machine learning. Simplicity, usability, analytics, implementation tools and supporting technologies were some of the critical capabilities evaluated by Gartner.
"The future of supply chain is coming at us faster than ever, and HighJump is assuring our customers across the globe rise to the occasion," said Chad Collins, CEO of HighJump. "Simply fulfilling demand is the past – HighJump enables customers to anticipate it, predict, and make smarter, faster decisions to adapt, grow and succeed today and tomorrow."
The Gartner Critical Capabilities report for warehouse management systems focuses specifically on WMS products. Results are based on nine critical capabilities - core and extended functionality, usability, agility, technology, decision support capability, implementation and support competencies and overall simplicity of use and operation - in correlation with the level of complexity of operations.
Since inclusion in this report, HighJump has made a series of innovative moves to propel supply chains into the future. This includes the launch of the HighJump Warehouse Control System. More is on the horizon as part of Körber Logistics Systems.
