Delivering The Future of Warehouse Management Systems…Today

by | Jul 19, 2022 | Blog

Introducing Pivotree Warehouse Management System.
Don’t compromise on agility, function,  or innovation any longer!

 

Both modern and legacy warehouse management systems (WMS) have been designed to support a fulfillment model where significant supply chain disruption is possible, but it’s isolated and the system has time to fully recover and keep operating in the interim.  Unfortunately, recent events like Covid and global supply chain issues have proven that this model is insufficient. A recent bottleneck analysis by Gartner showed that the most important factor for supply chain systems is the ability to support delivery in complex and varied models. Simply put, businesses need robust systems, that are agile enough to support multiple models instantly, and connective enough to leverage new technology quickly.

 

 

 

Globally companies will spend USD 9.7 billion  on WMS platforms alone, trying to solve this problem. Unfortunately, much of that spending is going into low-function, closed applications or into feature-rich monoliths that can’t adapt quickly or leverage the best Warehouse Optimization technology on the market quickly.  So of course that begs the question:

 

What do Agile, Robust, And Open Look Like?

  1. SaaS-Native
    The Software-as-a-solution or SaaS technology industry has grown around five-fold in just seven years) and for a good reason. These platforms are hosted on shared infrastructure and give instant benefits of lower initial costs, IT requirements, and accelerated implementation. Unfortunately, the WMS SaaS transition has been slow, and a story of compromise where you give up significant business capabilities to get there.   
  2. Composable, Modular Architecture
    Microservices-based WMS solutions provide the flexibility to leverage composable  solutions   tailored exactly to business need. Because you’re paying only for functionalities you need, the cost-saving benefits are immense. Not to mention that the composability framework lets you embed the hottest new technology quickly into your existing workflows, taking you from tradeshow to floor in record time!
  3. Agility & Scalability
    The volatility of the supply chain ecosystem makes it amply clear that flexibility and agility are key.     Whether it’s demand-based scaling, or upgrading to new industry requirements, the ability to scale and upgrade on-demand makes a business better prepared for contingencies and opportunities.
  4. Visibility & Control
    SaaS and cloud-based WMS solutions improve the user experience with data-driven insights and a centralized source of truth across your business. With the right solution, you support your entire business on just one platform. When done right, you get an eagle-eyed view across your whole operation, with real-time insights and metrics at your fingertips.
