LIS Logistische Informationssysteme AG (LIS) is expanding its product range and launching new software: LIS Warehouse Management (LWM). The cloud-based Warehouse Management System (WMS) is especially tailored to European Third Party Logistics (3PL) providers, regardless of their industry, and organises the internal material flow of their warehouses and distribution centres. Via the data cloud, various processes such as incoming and outgoing goods, inventory and capacity management or order picking can be viewed and flexibly controlled in real time with an end device connected to the internet. With this new development, the software house previously known for its transport management system (TMS) WinSped wants to offer its customers holistic solutions from a single source. The warehouse management software is available as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), either fully integrated in the WinSped package or as a stand-alone system. Suitable interfaces and converters enable easy connection and integration into external IT landscapes.
“If you want to stay competitive in the modern order fulfilment economy, you have to adapt to the fast-moving supply markets. With our new cloud-based LIS Warehouse Management, various logistics functions can be digitally mapped and optimised within a few weeks,” says Philipp Neuser, WMS Division Manager at LIS Logistische Informationssysteme AG. The new LIS development serves as a solutionespecially for e-commerce fulfilment as well as for third-party providers with several customers and a high degree of individualisation of the warehouse management.
From space management and warehouse topology to the booking of loading aids and value-added services and distribution to onward transports, LWM covers all relevant warehouse processes. Thanks to the low-code technology, users can easily define their own material flow and workflow – without any programming knowledge. “This way, the system can be implemented within a very short time and adapted again and again. This is a real cost advantage in the long run,” says Neuser. In addition, the LWM is regularly maintained and technologically developed. Through cloud access, all user data is located in LIS’s own data centres. In this way, the tool can not only be operated via a simple internet connection, independent of time and location, but further costs for data backup can be saved.
A Rest API and a converter ensure easy connection and integration of the LWM into any IT landscape. In addition, each individual process step within warehouse management can be flexibly substituted by external systems,” explains Neuser.
LIS Warehouse Management will be presented for the first time at the LIS AG T-Matik in-house exhibition on 11 May 2022 in the Greven bale warehouse and at LogiMAT from 31 May to 2 June in Stuttgart.
