Buchs/Aarau, 10 March 2006 – Swisslog, the provider of logistics solutions, releases Version 3087 of its warehouse management software WarehouseManager.

With over 7,000 satisfied users and more than 120 installed sites all over the world, WarehouseManager has a proven track record as a highly configurable Warehouse Management System (WMS) product. WarehouseManager is part of an integrated product suite used in manual, semi-automated and fully automated environments and has the additional flexibility to be adapted to customer specific requirements.
