Cincinnati, OH -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/29/2014 -- QC Software is featured in the current issue of Business Excellence magazine. The manufacturing journalist and author, Thomas R. Cutler, explored how the lag time of cloud based warehouse management systems are driving more distribution centers to warehouse control systems (WCS). According to Jerry List, Vice President of QC Software, a Tier 1 warehouse control systems solutions provider, suggested, “Even the best WMS has a brief lag time in transmitting of instructions to a high-speed sortation system. There are simply too many warehouses with tens of thousands of decisions being made daily that require split-second timing.”
List explained that there is a place for both warehouse management systems (WMS) and warehouse control systems (WCS). Often a WCS executes instructions provided by an upper-level host system, such as an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system or a WMS system. Tier-one WCS software provides advanced management capabilities including inventory control, resource scheduling and order management. The best-of-breed WCS systems are modular in nature, easily configurable and platform independent, with a scalable architecture to satisfy the needs of any size warehouse.
June 10th at Noon EST there will be a comprehensive discussion about when to choose WCS or WMS. The webinar is free of charge and hosted by QC Software. To register, go to: http://www.qcsoftware.com/register.
