VARGO®, a leading provider of material-handling systems integration, warehouse execution software and equipment solutions for major fulfillment and distribution centers, today announced an alliance partnership with Körber, the global supply chain technology leader from software to material handling automation. This alliance provides a referral program through which Körber will offer VARGO®’s Continuous Order Fulfillment Engine (COFE®) warehouse execution system (WES) and other VARGO® solutions in North America. In turn, VARGO® will provide Körber’s warehouse management system (WMS) as part of its design solutions for customers.
Körber’s industry-leading WMS, empowers quick and efficient tracking of all materials entering, being managed in and leaving the distribution center. The WMS uniquely handles the needs of small businesses to global enterprises. This includes handling diverse day-to-day operations, rapid growth, and complex workflows requiring personalized solutions.
VARGO®’s COFE® WES manages the elements that make up the outbound workflow. It synchronizes and sequences all work resources —equipment, devices and personnel — and keeps orders flowing by providing real-time visibility and controlling automation, labor and other elements. The ever-advancing growth of e-commerce has challenged companies to address both efficiency and expediency in their fulfillment centers. Just this past peak season, the top seven fulfillment centers powered by COFE® experienced a 20-percent growth from 2018 to 2019 in the number of units they processed in one peak, seven-day period after Thanksgiving.
