platbricks® Warehouse Management System

0140

The Warehouse Management System (WMS) is the “heart and brain” of a warehouse. All logistics processes – inside and outside the warehouse – converge here. You may therefore find yourself in one of the following three situations:

  • Until now, you have not needed your own WMS, either because it was too expensive or because the ERP covers all necessary features.
  • You have an old WMS and would like to move to a new one to meet the latest client requirements.

Whichever situation you are in, platbricks® WMS is the right solution for you. The warehouse management system you choose is not just an investment for you, but also a long-term partnership.

Flexibly positioned for the future

The platbricks® Warehouse Management System (WMS) is 100% forward-looking, meaning it will always be able to control manual, automated, and highly networked warehouses. Different systems can be integrated into the platbricks WMS independent of the manufacturer. The software is compatible with IoT and is ready for mobile use.

Encourage mobile working

The platbricks® Mobile Solutions module is integrated into the platbricks® WMS module. This means that you get a WMS with intuitive apps for all relevant warehouse processes. platbricks WMS significantly improves your process efficiency. As the process apps are independent of manufacturer and device, you can always decide which device is best suited for which process. In this way, you can make every warehouse process as efficient as possible.

Practical user interface

One of the advantages of a dedicated warehouse management system is that it guides employees optimally through the process apps. platbricks® WMS offers clear and simple user interfaces to avoid errors in the process. 

Dashboard with forward-looking analysis functions

platbricks® WMS Dashboard offers you two different analysis functions. Basic Analytics provides you with key performance indicators for all logistics processes in your warehouse transparently and in real-time. By using the platbricks® Analytics add-on, platbricks WMS becomes your strategic warehouse optimizer. In addition to Basic Analytics, Near-Time allows you to optimize the distance travelled, perform product analyses, accurately forecast demand, and respond to tomorrow’s challenges, today.

Cloud solution and client-oriented support

platbricks® WMS is a modern WMS with a modular design that grows with your logistics requirements. By using the Private Business Cloud from Microsoft Azure, you benefit from the highly available networks of our technology partner. This means you can enjoy the flexibility, scalability, fast response times, and low IT costs of the cloud.

Reference in Focus

Platbricks im Einsatz bei der Helmut Bünte GmbH

For a long time, Helmut Bünte GmbH operated paper-based and highly manual in the intralogistics area. Today, Bünte relies on our platbricks® Warehouse Management System Pro, which maps the complete end-to-end process there and supports the employees with smart, mobile processes from goods receipt to goods issue. 

"We have digitalized our analog information flow in the warehouse through platbricks®. Swap pen and paper for tablet and scanner. Sounds unspectacular at first, but with such a powerful partner as Arvato Systems and such a versatile, adaptable but intra-logistically stringent solution as platbricks®, it opens up many possibilities for process optimization in the future." -  Matthias Groneick | Operational Management Helmut Bünte GmbH
