WMS in the Cloud

The HighJump™ Warehouse Edge, formerly AccellosOne WMS, community joined cloud expert, Jared Mendenhall, at Elevate 2017 to learn more about the robust cloud offering available for their warehouse management solution. With 20 plus years of cloud experience, HighJump™ OnDemand Cloud operations span across multiple solutions and geographies today with more than 8,000 customers utilizing this offering. HighJump also has dedicated cloud resources that are committed to providing its customers faster, better and more reliable service.

According to Forbes, the global SaaS market is projected to grow from $49B in 2015 to $67B in 2018, attaining a CAGR of 8.14%. As this huge shift from traditionally installed software to cloud technology begins to take place, customers are rethinking their on premise solutions for increased flexibility, scalability and security that the cloud affords. In today’s world, the cost and frustration of losing information is far more expensive than paying the low, flat monthly subscription for the cloud.

There are several benefits to be gained from switching to the cloud, one being that it allows you to focus more on your business with confidence knowing that HighJump is available to mitigate any WMS issues 24 hours a day. HighJump OnDemand Cloud leverages best in class infrastructure and has multiple, geographically dispersed regions to offer availability, fault tolerance and redundancy unachievable onsite. Another benefit is that services can quickly be deployed to the cloud without long procurement, installation and deployment cycles of onsite hardware and resources. All services utilize an elastic cloud computing platform with additional computing resources that can easily be applied as usage of the system increases.

Jared also provided insight on HighJump’s cloud vision for 2017 and beyond with its continued investment in cloud resources, services and security. In 2016, HighJump spent over $1M in datacenter upgrades and has equal investments planned for 2017. With vast improvements in disk performance, customers are able to do reporting and large queries much more quickly. The HighJump team also focused heavily on automation and code release in order to get services up and running faster. With the significant investments in the platform, HighJump OnDemand Cloud’s performance is better than any other offering found in the marketplace.
