Warehouse software vendor Softeon launched a new warehouse execution system (WES) platform, saying that it combines aspects of both WMS and WES capabilities that can now work together to address issues like automation utilization, resource management, and task optimization.
The firm's WES capabilities also include simulation tools that let customers performance-test a WMS before it goes live, using their own inventory data from the past day's—or the next day's—workload. The results allow them to predict potential problems and find workarounds inside the simulation before they happen in the real world.
"Combined with the sophisticated capabilities of Softeon's WMS, this new WES functionality—available with the WMS or as a standalone—provides a truly breakthrough solution," Softeon chief marketing officer Dan Gilmore said in a release.
