Cost-justifying Warehouse Management Technologies in Small and Midsized Warehouses


The warehouse management system (WMS) concept has matured into a collection of time-tested technologies that reduce inventory costs and increase overall inventory management efficiencies. By implementing WMS technology, organizations can achieve a higher return on their software dollars and provide better service to their customers. A WMS can provide organizations with tangible benefits that improve warehouse operations without adding headcount.

Can Lilly Software Get More VISUAL?


Lilly Software’s financial success and double-digit revenue growth during the recent years have been attributable to its strong offerings and efficient distribution model for its target niche. However, the future is not going to be quite so bright unless the company overcomes serious challenges.

VISUAL DCMS RF-enabled WMS application within the VISUAL suite, impressed Cerqa with its advanced functionality to track costs and manage inventory from point-of-receipt through storage and shipping. There are quite a few WMS players in today''s marketplace, but not many with robust warehouse capabilities found in VISUAL DCMS. Smaller still is the number of companies that provide an integrated supply chain suite, which is what makes Lilly Software''s solution unique, says Raymond Read More

Analyzing Manhattan Associates’ Supply Chain Platform Play - Part 1


My recent article on Manhattan Associates (NASDAQ: MANH) and RedPrairie Corporation stated that these two vendors continue to duke it out at almost every large-scale selection deal for a warehouse management system (WMS), distribution labor management system (LMS), and/or transportation management system (TMS) solution. But over the last few years they have also pursued

The only applications that are not yet fully on the SCPP platform are demand planning and inventory optimization. But the indications that I got at the very recent National Retail Federation (NRF) BIG Retail Show 2011 were that these solutions might also be platform-enabled by the Momentum 2011 conference in late May 2011, and the conference tag will be “Platform Thinking Activated.” We will have to stay Read More

Taking Stock of TAKE Supply Chain Solutions - Part 3


Part 1 of this blog series introduced TAKE Supply Chain, a supply chain management (SCM) division of TAKE Solutions, Ltd. The parent TAKE Solutions is a global technology solutions and service provider, which focuses on two principal business areas – life sciences and SCM (the company is listed on the Indian Stock Exchange). My first post described TAKE Supply Chain’s

With its Gemini solutions, TAKE Supply Chain has been able to rapidly deliver new custom-like execution solutions as standard supported products with an upgrade path, which is an attractive alternative to traditional cumbersome customizations and integrations. Moreover, the product’s architecture provides an ability to enable Read More

Smaller Vendors Can Still Provide Relevant Business Systems Part Three: Project Oriented Organizations


The unique business needs of project-oriented organizations, when addressed by large ERP vendors that offer general-purpose enterprise software, typically require heavy customization in order to work. On the other hand, when project-oriented organizations turn to small off-the-shelf project-management solutions, these solutions are soon outgrown by the user company.

In addition to the above-depicted government-oriented manufacturing and accounting capabilities (i.e., WBS with native EVM), Relevant''s differentiation might also be in catering to the companies that require an ability to track every product, each of its subassemblies or parts, and its stage in the production cycle, as a prerequisite to production efficiency and profitability, which is Read More

Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold Manner Part One: Recent Annoucements


The fact that the size does not necessarily mean everything in the enterprise applications space might be proven by Provia, which certainly still continues to differentiate its value proposition despite its smaller stature and quieter nature compared to most of its adversaries. Most recently, it would be its early embrace of RFID through two offerings for different levels of RFID needs: 1) ViaWare WMS--RFID compliant product, for intrinsic RFID enablement of many processes within the supply chain, and 2) the RFIDware add-on module, for achieving outbound RFID tag application only.

Still, Wal-Mart suppliers have also been searching for ways to leverage their RFID investments within their own organizations in addition to merely fulfilling the ultimatum placed upon them. To that end, Wal-Mart has recently offered to supply information to its suppliers regarding the status of RFID tagged products as they progress through Wal-Mart''s supply chain. Read More

RFID Implementation: Moving Forward through the Four Phases


Implementation of a radio frequency identification system is best approached in four phases to ensure its success. Discussed here are the second and third phases, which deal with testing and validation, and the importance of setting up a pilot implementation.

Taking Stock of TAKE Supply Chain Solutions - Part 1


Over the past several years I’ve repeatedly heard of a supply chain management (SCM) software and professional services company called ClearOrbit that was recently renamed TAKE Supply Chain. I admit to initially being in a quandary how to figure out the company’s exact value proposition and differentiation, given that its corporate Web site and press release (PR) messages

For example, errors in demand plans and production Read More

ROI for RFID: A Case Study Part One: Company Background


Radio frequency identification (RFID) is the latest buzzword in the world of manufacturing and distribution technology. If you believe the press releases, it is a panacea and cure-all for what ails the industry. While RFID may not solve world hunger, you may not want to propose a solution without it. This research note looks at a recent and successful, implementation of RFID, examining the characteristics of the process and common obstacles and speed bumps to avoid.

rf modulator  respond to an interrogating RF signal with simple identifying information, or with more complex signals depending on the size of the integrated circuit. RFID has advantages over bar codes such as the ability to hold more data and to change the stored data as processing occurs. Additional benefits are that RFID does not require line-of-sight to transfer data and is very effective in harsh environments where bar code labels simply won''t work. In a nutshell, RFID can transmit more information with Read More

Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold Manner Part Four: Global Availability

HighJump Grows in a Period of Low Growth Through Adaptable, Broad Function Products Part Four: Challenges and User Recommendations
