At the 14th International Trade Fair for Distribution, Materials Handling and Information Flow - LogiMAT (March 8th to 10th 2016) in Stuttgart - Jungheinrich is showcasing its WMS Series 2 entry-level warehouse management system specifically targeted at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that want to manage their warehouses professionally.

Based on standardised, field-tested processes, the WMS Series 2 handles all basic logistics functionalities from incoming to outgoing goods. In addition to a comprehensive master data management system and periodic inventory function, the WMS Series 2 offers numerous other central control functions. The HOST interface included in the package facilitates smooth communication with the customer's existing system environment.

Thanks to standardised processes and Jungheinrich's extensive experience in project management, the WMS Series 2 can be rolled out at the customer's facility in just a few weeks.

“Today, many smaller companies are still working with Excel spreadsheets or in-house developed systems. Given the advancing integration of new technologies and processes as well as growing demands and new functionalities, such ad-hoc solutions often reach their limits. With the WMS Series 2 from Jungheinrich the customer gets a cost-effective and future-proof entry-level system oriented to modern intralogistics processes that can be scaled up as needed in line with the growth of the customer's business,” explains Markus Skof, Managing Director of Jungheinrich Systemlösungen GmbH.

Numerous options available

Optional features include returns handling, a number of different label and receipt printing functions and multi-client functionality. The standard interfaces, for example for warehouse navigation, the automatic LRK lift racking system for trays or the PRK vertical Paternoster racking system, mean new functions or storage systems can be up and running within a short period of time.

Depending on customer requirements, Jungheinrich offers complete solutions from a single source. Jungheinrich with its diverse project experience is at the customer's side in an advisory capacity at every stage of the roll out, and assures successful project completion by providing optional services, such as installing a Wi-Fi wireless data communications infrastructure, installing WMS clients or labelling rack spaces.

The WMS Series 2 is a fully-integrated, professional product from the Jungheinrich WMS family. Regular product development ensures the WMS Series 2 is always at the cutting edge of logistics and WMS technology. A unique feature consists of the built-in forward compatibility guaranteeing that the WMS Series 2 will work with new releases and upgrades well into the future. The worldwide hotline support with guaranteed response times ensures rapid assistance and problem resolution by WMS experts. The customer can choose from various time and reaction models.

This flexibility goes beyond just the product. In addition to purchasing a license, Jungheinrich offers its clients the option of using the WMS Series 2 for a monthly fee without a minimum contract period.

“Thanks to Jungheinrich's many years of WMS expertise and worldwide direct sales featuring a central WMS support hotline, we offer our customers a future-proof solution with complete release upgradability. And our attractive licensing models also provide the client with absolute investment and cost security,” reports Dr. Markus Heinecker, Managing Director of Jungheinrich Systemlösungen GmbH.
