Softeon to Feature Breakthrough Order Fulfillment System at NRF’s “Big Show” 2019 at the Javits Center in Manhattan

System Directly Controls, Optimizes Voice Picking, Smart Carts, Put
Walls, Pick-to-Light, Mobile Robot System and More to Reduce Fulfillment

RESTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#DOMlt;/agt;–Softeon, a global supply chain software provider with the industry’s
best record of customer success, will be demonstrating its Breakthrough
Order Fulfillment System at National Retail Federation’s “Big Show” at
the Javits Center in New York City, Jan. 13-15, 2019.

With the growth in “eaches” picking (or broken case picking in many
distribution operations as a result of e-commerce) and other factors
driving changes to order profiles, companies are turning to a variety of
technologies to reduce picking costs, including Voice, smart pick carts,
put walls, pick-to-light, and mobile robots to improve order picking

But in nearly all cases, those sub-systems include their own control
software, bringing a number of disadvantages, such as: making commodity
hardware and the systems proprietary and expensive; requiring
integration upfront and over time between those control systems and the
WMS; and providing limited ability to fully optimize the complete
picking process, including slotting, replenishment, real-time
decision-making and exception handling.

The Softeon WMS eliminates all of these problems by directly managing
all subsystems in any combination. This eliminates the need for
third-party control software and interfaces. As a result, commodity
hardware can be used, with savings of up to 70%. The cost and complexity
of system deployments are also reduced substantially, as there is no
need for integration between the WMS and the sub-systems.

But most importantly, double-digit gains in productivity can be achieved
by having one system – the Softeon WMS – optimizing the entire picking,
replenishment and slotting process, delivering levels of productivity
that simply cannot be achieved by a WMS “throwing picks over the wall”
for execution by these subsystems operating in silos, as it is commonly

At NRF booth #2477, Softeon will have live demonstrations of these
market-changing capabilities, including an innovative approach with the
use of mobile robots.

Softeon’s OFS comes as part of its WMS solution, but is also available
as a stand-alone product for companies that want to keep their inbound
WMS systems in place.

“We are confident there will be nothing like Softeon’s Order Fulfillment
System at the NRF show, and the live demonstration will give attendees a
clear picture of the benefits these capabilities will deliver,” said Dan
Gilmore, Chief Marketing Officer at Softeon. “Anyone interested in
improving order picking will want to come and take a look.”
