An evolution of automated installations, smart warehouses are facilities in which the majority of logistics processes are executed by robots or automatic handling equipment. These elements are managed by software and complemented by advanced technologies such as machine learning, AI, big data, augmented reality, and IIOT-connected sensors.
The implementation of logistics software is vital for ensuring full control over your warehouse stock and, above all, traceability of products in their journey throughout the facility—a logistics attribute in demand by more and more businesses. As a result, there are a wide variety of apps that, synchronized with the company’s ERP system, enhance the efficiency of all operations. This is the most popular one: Warehouse management system (WMS): this is the brain of the facility, as it is charged with coordinating all processes taking place there, from goods receipt to exit orders. In fact, Easy WMS, the WMS from Worldcraft, incorporates up to 80 advanced functions ranging from the management of shipping routes to cross-docking and wave picking.
