New warehouse execution system

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Matthews Automation Solutions is introducing its new Nexus Warehouse Execution System (WES).

Matthews new WES unifies data, operations and material handling equipment, enabling them to function collaboratively and increase throughput and material flow throughout the facility. The software includes a new web-based front end for desktop and mobile devices.

The new software is the result of Matthews Pyramid Director and CORS (Compass Order Routing System) software platforms coming together in Pyramid’s expanded Cincinnati, Ohio campus. The combined teams and technologies have now produced Nexus.

“Matthews Nexus Warehouse Execution System dynamically balances work and synchronizes real-time resources to optimize how orders flow through a facility,” said Gary Cash, senior vice-president and general manager for Matthews Automation Solutions.

“It provides the visibility, flexibility and on-demand performance companies need to meet the growing volume and complexity of omnichannel and e-commerce order fulfillment.”

NEXUS uses real-time data and adaptive learning to continuously monitor and adjust automated subsystems to maintain balanced operations based on rate and projected workflow.

Support will continue for Pyramid and Compass customer installations through Matthews’ Cincinnati team, who will also offer virtual demonstrations of NEXUS to end users and partners.

Matthews has scheduled a virtual NEXUS demonstration during ProMat DX on Thursday, April 15, 2021 at 1:45 PM Central Daylight Time, followed by an open question-and-answer forum.
