Handling unique, one-off online orders coming in anytime, from anywhere, is big enough a challenge for today’s distribution centers.

With the right process in place, these challenges become opportunities. This is dynamic waves.

I like to tell my students that I was alive at the birth of the Internet…and no I didn’t know Al Gore. I worked for a now defunct supply chain portal during the early century Web 1.0 era and I have the stock option certificates framed and hanging on my office wall to prove it. I also have a box of denim shirts with a classic dot.com logo!
Prior to that, and while employed as a supply manager in a Boston area high tech manufacturer, I attended graduate school to earn a masters degree in management. Part of that program was the development of a master’s thesis. Trying to bridge the academic world and the practical one, I decided to research how the Internet might impact supplier relationships. It had a fancy title, The Effect of the Internet on Marketing to the Supply Management Function in the Industrial Marketplace, and contained lots of research, statistical surveys, and many supplier interviews.
HighJump's warehouse management system (WMS) software has been positioned amongst the technology leaders in the global WMS market by Quadrant Knowledge Solutions, a global advisory and consulting firm focused on helping clients achieve business transformation goals with strategic business and growth advisory services.
The recognition stems from company initiatives and product enhancements to provide warehouse customers with the tools and capabilities to succeed in today’s complex supply chain landscape.
Have you ever tried to connect a VCR to a high definition television?
I never thought I’d be mentioning those two pieces of technology together until my parents bought an HDTV a few weeks ago. Their piles of VHS tapes and lack of technical prowess meant that it was on me to solve the tricky predicament of taking an aged piece of technology and getting it connected to new technology. After multiple trips to the local electronics store and consulting different experts, I was finally able to get it to work. Can these two pieces of technology be used together? Yes, but it takes a substantial amount of work. Were the results underwhelming? Yes. Did it take much longer than anticipated? Yes. Did it cost more than I anticipated? Yes. Does it take full advantage of the new technology? No.
This is not much different than the struggle that traditional on-premises EDI providers have had integrating EDI into and out of Dynamics 365 for Operations.
