Westfalia Technologies, Inc. in the News: To remain competitive and prepare for the future, warehouse operators are focused today on maximizing efficiencies and minimizing expenses by optimizing warehouse space, reducing labor costs and increasing order accuracy. In order to reap these benefits, operators need to turn to warehouse automation technology.
By integrating a high-density automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) with a warehouse execution system (WES), manufacturers can better manage their inventory to obtain accurate, real-time information on products moving throughout the warehouse to increase efficiency and decrease the time to market for its brands.
The WES includes a tightly integrated warehouse management system (WMS) and warehouse control system (WCS) to help manufacturers and distributors direct, control and optimize material flow and order fulfillment. This two-in-one solution performs the tasks of both systems through a single solution. Its modular design enables companies to use only the functions needed to handle their immediate warehousing needs—ranging from full traceability of inventory to fully automating the warehouse with an AS/RS.
