Updated WMS

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Zethcon Corporation has updated its Synapse WMS. Version 3.0 includes enhanced order fulfillment capabilities, improved API integration and data sharing, an updated user interface and more.

The updated release offers improved API integrations for faster, easier data sharing and more flexible communication. This enables 3PLs to make information available for customers to share downstream, such as distributors communicating order status to brick-and-mortar retailers, along with enhanced data mining and reporting capabilities.

In addition to supporting communication through different levels of the supply chain, Synapse WMS also integrates with third-party utilities like shipping applications and material handling systems.

Synapse WMS 3.0 is designed to smooth e-commerce order fulfillment processes inside the warehouse, too. Whether processed by employees or robots, the WMS dictates strategies for picking workflow, packaging options and more. The platform also offers support for the growing range of value-added services 3PLs are asked to provide, with improved tracking and billing functionality.

The kitting functionality is completely redesigned for improved inventory tracking, an especially important feature for 3PLs charged with managing a variety of apparel, electronics and food items bundled into a range of order packages. For example, in the event a recall, users can easily pinpoint all of the product lot in question, broken down across individual and kit orders – no manual searching or accounting required.

The platform also offers an improved user interface, designed to not only be more intuitive, but customized for each location and user. The refresh includes smoother transitions, new drop-down menus and options to tailor colour and graphic style.

“Version 3.0 delivers the functionality and flexibility to meet a broad range of requirements without the need for one-off customizations – enabling a lean, high-performance platform backed by the efficient, responsive support our customers expect,” said Chris Oechsel, CEO, Zethcon.
