WCS News Issue 3 Explores Choice Between WCS and WMS
Cincinnati, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2014 -- In the third issue of WCS News, a weekly e-news publication, Warehouse Control Systems (WCSs) that examined which is needed, WCS or WMS (warehouse management system). As operations and fulfillment technology continues to evolve, merchants face a decision of implementing a WMS, a WCS, or both. WCS technology came along in the mid-1990's to bridge the gap between the WMS and the warehouse floor by allocating, balancing, and managing tasks executed by material handling equipment and systems in real-time. Today, the standalone functionality of WCS solutions have erased some of the "either/or" conversation.
The newsletter also explored new names and nomenclature in warehouse technologies. While current distribution challenges need WCS to address new operational challenges in distribution centers today, the new phrase Warehouse Execution Software (WES) is not a new breed of warehouse software. Best-of-breed WCS solutions meet the demand, flexibility, and versatility by bridging people and automation. Automated warehouse environments have found that WCS solutions are proven as a cost-effective means to extend the functionality of legacy systems or augment WMS functionality.
