TECSYS (Booth 612) a provider of warehouse management systems (WMS) and other distribution management software, unveiled five new solutions at a press conference Monday.

The applications cover five areas, including a voice operations solution that adds simple visuals to device displays for added clarity and speed; supply management system (SMS), which supports a walk-in inventory store concept for customers; a customer self-service kiosk solution; a mobile solution for event tracking and delivery management; and a mobile business intelligence solution.

The solutions cover many areas, said Robert Colosino, VP of development, but they are all focused on driving that perfect order, while also bringing the accuracy and inventory management functionality found in distribution centers “closer to the customer” with apps such as the kiosk or SMS.

“You can extend customer reach beyond the warehouse,” said Colosino. “If your warehousing just functions within its four walls, then it truly is a silo.”

Modex 2012 is scheduled to be held February 6-9, 2012 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2012 coverage.
