Westfalia Technologies Launches New Warehouse Execution System

Comprised of tightly integrated warehouse management and control systems, the software solution directs, controls, and optimizes internal material flow and order picking.

YORK, Pa.Westfalia Technologies, Inc., a provider of logistics solutions for manufacturers, warehouses and distribution centers since 1992, announces the launch of its Savanna.NET Warehouse Execution System (WES). A unique warehousing software solution, Savanna.NET, combines a tightly integrated warehouse management system (WMS) and warehouse control system (WCS) into a single application to help manufacturers and distributors direct, control and optimize internal material flow and order picking.

With the flexibility to operate as a standalone software solution or with any automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) – not only Westfalia’s own AS/RS – the Savanna.NET WES simplifies and controls the entire warehousing process, while reducing the complexity of using several different “function-specific” applications. As a result, users can more efficiently utilize warehouse space and equipment, increase order accuracy, improve customer service, reduce the risk of lost or damaged product, and raise throughput and productivity.

Savanna.NET offers users the functionality necessary to efficiently receive, store and track product, as well as optimally marry inventory to customer orders using the solution’s integrated order fulfillment processing capabilities. When an order is to be fulfilled, Savanna.NET processes that order into units of work. Using the Savanna.NET solution’s integrated WCS functionality, the application directs either automated material handling equipment or manual labor to execute the work. Inventory tracking also occurs seamlessly utilizing the software’s WMS components. In addition, Savanna.NET® has the flexibility for a variety of deployment options, ensuring that users receive the WES solution that best meets their needs.
