“Our new WMS system is a cloud-based system using the latest technology designed to bring the most benefits to our customers,” said Paul Rivera, category manager for Intralogistics AEB. “We looked at inbound, for example, so we are focusing on quick turnaround times and streamlining data entry.”
Rivera pointed out that the streamlining of data entry applies to all processes. AEB is using the latest UI technology and HTML5, and automation. AEB also developed easy-to-use apps as this would make it easier than before for employees to look at order fulfillment.
The pay-per-use solutions enable customers to easily transition either from manual operations or their current WMS because it can run on different hardware platforms.
“This makes it easier for the customer to choose a hardware that is affordable for what their needs are, but also saves a lot of implementation,” Kok said. “The upfront investment in service and license is now replaced by cloud fees. So, it’s a monthly installment, which is actually for the customer’s operational costs, not a capital expense, which makes a big difference.”
