International Business Systems (IBS), a global supplier of integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP), warehouse management system (WMS) and supply chain solutions, and Optricity Corporation, provider of innovative software solutions for the workplace, announced a new strategic partnership in the Americas region to deliver a streamlined integration between IBS’s warehouse management and enterprise systems and Optricity’s slotting software. The solution will maximize efficiency and improve return on investment (ROI) for the warehousing market.
This partnership creates rich opportunities for joint clients to enjoy cost savings, efficiencies and additional benefits as a result of improved operations once the combined solutions are implemented. An optimally slotted warehouse supports efficient putaway, picking and pallet-building, while reducing product damage and increasing customer satisfaction.
“Optricity’s advanced slotting optimization software, and IBS’s enterprise and warehouse management systems offer a high-quality solution set that, together, will vastly improve warehousing operations without the hassle of having to play translator to ensure each system speaks the same language,” said Michael Wohlwend, general manager of the Americas at IBS.
Both IBS and Optricity provide their solutions across industries, including, but not limited to: automotive, consumer goods, electronics, paper, publishing, food and beverage, and pharmaceuticals.
“IBS’s dedication to innovation and their collaborative approach in exploring solutions for current and future clients, mirrors our own passion for excellence,” said Sheila Benny, executive vice president of Optricity. “Like us, IBS is rooted in a foundation of continuous enhancement, which is evidenced by this partnership. Our work together provides great opportunity to expand traditional WMS value to warehousing operations around the globe.”
