enVista, a leading enterprise and supply chain consulting services firm, announced today that is has made a significant strategic investment in Contech Systems, Inc. Contech provides the industry-leading Warehouse Control System, DataManager, that helps companies direct activities in their warehouses and distribution centers in real-time. enVista made the investment as part of its mission to deliver enterprise excellence from source to consumption.

Accordingly, we are excited to partner with Contech to provide clients a best of breed Warehouse Control System to optimize their facilities in real time.”
The system is in use in more than 150 U.S. distribution centers (DCs). enVista will resell the system under the name, enMotion.
