Softeon Releases New White Paper on the State of Warehouse Management Systems in the Cloud

After Slow Start, Cloud WMS has Gone Mainstream, with Many Advantages for Companies if Solution is Architected for Success

Softeon, a global supply chain software provider with the industry’s best track record of customer success, has released a new white paper that looks at the state of Warehouse Management Systems in the Cloud.

Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) were a little late to Cloud deployment from a combination of factors, including concerns about performance from time-sensitive processes such as wireless communications, materials handling system integration, use of Voice technology and more.

Another factor was that several of the larger WMS providers were slow to deliver Cloud platforms.

Softeon, conversely, has been web-native and Cloud ready for many years, architecting a WMS solution designed for Cloud deployment and built for scale and responsiveness.

“Customer satisfaction with WMS Cloud implementations is very high, due to eliminating the need to set-up an environment internally and providing on-going managed services by Softeon.”

This white paper covers a variety of topics companies interested in WMS will want to explore, including the following:

  • A brief history of WMS and Cloud
  • The three key dimensions of Cloud versus traditional WMS deployment
  • The operational benefits of Cloud delivery
  • Why Cloud WMS architecture matters
  • An analysis of Cloud WMS performance concerns
  • Mini-case studies of Cloud WMS implementations
  • Lessons learned from dozens of deployments of WMS in the Cloud

“Concerns about latency with WMS in the Cloud have proven to be overblown, at least for solutions architected for success,” said Dan Gilmore, chief marketing officer at Softeon.

He added that, “Customer satisfaction with WMS Cloud implementations is very high, due to eliminating the need to set-up an environment internally and providing on-going managed services by Softeon.”
