Compact Store: the next level WMS from Weland Solutions

04 November 2019

Following the acquisition of Kodverkstan earlier this year, Weland Solutions now fully owns the WMS system Compact Store. In conjunction with the acquisition, Weland Solutions’ IT Department was expanded to give it the capacity to take the system to the next level. A series of planned improvements and brand new features are now being rolled out in parallel with Weland Solutions’ launch of Compact Store 8.0.

The new version has a more contemporary interface and is even more future-proof. The WMS system provides support for all operations included in normal inventory management, such as incoming deliveries, combination, prioritizing and starting of picking orders, transfer and refilling of items and inventory.

One of Compact Store 8.0’s new features is putaway and storage of incoming goods via Put-To-Light (PTL). This means the customer can use PTL to manage storage - a tool that makes replenishment picking in vertical storage lifts more efficient. This already exists for order picking, but is now also available for putaway.
