RedPrairie Combines Asset Management with WMS

Aug. 5, 2009
RedPrairie Corp. has expanded the capabilities of its warehouse management system (WMS), integrating asset management functionality from its Mobile Resource Management application.

The company says the enhanced software will now offer Web visibility for serialized assets and integration of RFID-based yard transactions.

“In previous years, organizations often had to use separate programs to track inventory and assets in motion,” says Tom Kozenski, RedPrairie vice president of product strategy, Tom Kozenski. “Trailers could be tracked in the yard, and pallets and inventory could be followed within the warehouse with these systems, but once they were en route to a destination, a different solution had to be used to provide true visibility. RedPrairie’s warehouse management can now track these assets via the Web and adjust loading and unloading procedure to match specific locations.”
