Westfalia Technologies Inc. has launched its Savanna.NET Warehouse Execution System (WES). The software solution combines a tightly integrated warehouse management system (WMS) and warehouse control system (WCS) into a single application to help manufacturers and distributors direct, control and optimize internal material flow and order picking.
With the flexibility to operate as a standalone software solution or with any automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS), the Savanna.NET WES simplifies and controls the entire warehousing process, while reducing the complexity of using several different “function-specific” applications.
Savanna.NET offers users the functionality necessary to receive, store and track product, as well as optimally marry inventory to customer orders using the solution’s integrated order fulfillment processing capabilities. When an order is to be fulfilled, Savanna.NET processes that order into units of work. Using the solution’s integrated WCS functionality, the application directs either automated material handling equipment or manual labor to execute the work. Inventory tracking also occurs seamlessly utilizing the software’s WMS components.
