Effectively and reliably manage complex, automated material handling systems with minimal downtime.
Gain real-time visibility of order fulfillment and product routing with cutting-edge warehouse control systems.
A warehouse control system (WCS) is a software application that controls activities in distribution centres and warehouses in real-time.
A WCS makes sure that everything is running correctly. It maximises efficiency within material handling subsystems and can also help with associate efficiency. A good WCS will provide a uniform interface for a variety of material handling equipment, including carousels, sorters, conveyor systems, palletisers, sorters, etc.
Many business owners wonder about using a WCS vs a WMS. A WCS is used to direct “real-time” activities in a distribution centre or warehouse. Warehouse control systems direct warehouse activities, with a goal of smoothly running various material handling systems (and sometimes worker activities.)
A warehouse management system, on the other hand, has a broader focus. It doesn’t focus on the automated equipment, rather, it focuses on broader processes, activities, and people. A good WMS will focus on optimising human labour processes to fulfill goals and meet deadlines.
