A warehouse management system (WMS) is one of the most critical pieces of enterprise technology in your business, something that supports your day-to-day operations. Like a car or a house, it’s a big investment that you need to protect.

Hamstrung by its existing WMS, DGD engaged in a WMS selection process and selected HighJump WMS to better optimize outbound order processes and improve inventory management.
When evaluating picking solutions for the warehouse, there are four main options that are often considered: voice, paper, RF scanning, and pick-to-light. Although each of these solutions have their own strengths, weaknesses, and ideal applications, they should all be considered when making a decision about future projects. Comparing the four solutions to each other, and evaluating what they will bring to your operation, is the best way to determine what will be the best fit for your operation. Below is a comprehensive look at the four solutions, and how they perform against each other.

While voice technology was initially implemented mainly to enhance order fulfillment tasks, the performance benefits have resulted in a growing number of companies expanding their use of voice into other areas of the Distribution Center (DC).

In an effort to counter the costs of meeting ever-rising customer expectations, businesses are increasingly searching for inefficiencies in their supply chain. The reality is there is almost no room for inefficiency in the race to stay competitive by keeping prices low while providing an exceptional customer experience.
Every organization realizes the importance of the supply chain in the overall health of the company. However, many are unsure of how to start optimizing their supply chain. It can seem overwhelming, even unapproachable, because that term casts such a wide net. Where, exactly, should you start?

When it came time for Saudi distributor and manufacturer Binzagr to implement HighJump™ Warehouse Advantage WMS, the business had to proceed with caution.
Binzagr has 36 sites spread across 21 locations throughout Saudi Arabia with four supply chains – food, non-food, cold and auto – and partners with prominent brands like Kraft, Tyson Foods, Hershey’s, Dunlop Tires and Unilever. It moves 700,000-800,000 cartons per day across that network. All of the products it handles start in the flagship location in Jeddah, along the Red Sea coast, and are distributed to different locations from there. The scale of the operation means any disruption in business could have a significant financial impact and damage critical relationships with suppliers and customers.
