Swisslog, a global provider of integrated logistics solutions, announces the release 3086 of its warehouse management software suite, WarehouseManager. The release includes new functionality such as labour optimization, cockpit functions and voice picking. Furthermore, in the latest release of WarehouseManager, Swisslog's material flow control module for automated warehouses and distribution centres, AutomationManager, is fully integrated with improved performances and flexibility for two main purposes. First, the seamless integration into WarehouseManager and second the connectivity to third party warehouse management systems (WMS).
With over 7,000 satisfied users in more than 120 sites all over the world, WarehouseManager has a proven track record as a product based WMS. The integrated product suite is used in manual, semi-automated and fully automated environments and has the flexibility to be adapted to customer specific requirements. The module AutomationManager may also be implemented as a standalone system and connected to third party WMS.
Labour and cockpit functionality give customers full visibility of resources and key performance indicators of the warehouse or distribution centre, which results in increased productivity and higher quality of service. In addition, the integration of voice picking gives Swisslog's customers the opportunity to further improve productivity in their warehouses, whilst achieving picking accuracy of close to 100%. All the new modules have already been successfully implemented in projects around the world.
"With the new release of WarehouseManager, Swisslog addresses the daily challenges of real warehouse managers," says Andy Villiger, Head of Software Solutions at Swisslog, "such as visibility of the ongoing activities, short-term planning of people, and flexibility to optimize processes and automated material flow."
