Körber Unveils Innovative Solutions to Enhance WMS Capabilities and Elevate Warehouse Operations

Gamification, Slotting.IQ and Unified Control Systems increase efficiencies in the warehouse

Körber announced today the launch of three solutions set to augment warehouse operations. With a focus on innovation beyond Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), these products address common productivity and workflow pain points across the supply chain, unlocking new capabilities and enhanced functionalities.

Supply chain companies face increasing challenges, necessitating the addition of software solutions to extend WMS capabilities. Körber's latest developments provide a holistic approach to supply chain execution, ensuring end-to-end visibility, scalability and flexibility.

With 82% of workers motivated by recognition, Kӧrber's Gamification boosts productivity by encouraging worker engagement and introducing healthy competition. Management sets targets and milestones to encourage users to progress through the experience, as they collaborate as a team and accomplish tasks. This solution redefines worker engagement, emphasizing efficiency, productivity and employee satisfaction.

Körber's Slotting.IQ allows warehouses to harness management of complex inventories. Dynamic slotting algorithms optimize inventory placements, improving order-picking efficiency and accelerating order processing. By integrating with the WMS, re-slotting strategies can be implemented seamlessly and enhance overall operational productivity. Slotting.IQ's automated approach saves valuable time and resources compared to traditional, manual slotting methods.

Körber's Unified Control System (UCS) provides a single point of management and control for fulfillment processes driven by warehouse staff, AMR and other automation technologies. It seamlessly orchestrates automated and manual workflows, enabling faster order processing and improving throughput. UCS integrates with the WMS and other warehouse technologies to enable operational flexibility, streamline workflows and boost productivity.

"Körber's commitment to pushing the boundaries of warehouse technology is reflected in these solutions," said Sean Elliott, CTO and acting CEO Software, Körber Business Area Supply Chain. "Whether it's revolutionizing inventory placement with Slotting.IQ, boosting workforce engagement through Gamification, or combining automation with human workflows with UCS, Körber continues to drive warehouse innovation."
