Warehouse Control System

The logistics operations of many warehouse and distribution center requires automated material handling equipment to work together. Cranes, conveyors, sortation, high bay storage and many others are required to integrate with each other and with a Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) or Enterprise Resource Planning system (ERP). We recognized these important features and have developed our Windows based Warehouse Control System (WCS) to provide the seamless integration across the real time automated material handling equipment control system to realize data transparency and flow across the whole warehouse.
