At Westfalia, we are committed to our clients’ success, and pride ourselves on being an active partner in every stage of your project: planning, design, installation, testing, training, commissioning, maintenance and service/support. We understand that not every client’s needs are the same, which is why our team of software developers provides custom support solutions based on your individual requirements.

Warehouse Automation Planning for Now and the Future

It is very important to consider the service and support requirements of a Warehouse Execution System (WES) once the application is installed. Customer support and service are two of the most important considerations when acquiring WES software, and are both critical factors that set companies apart.

As business processes change, your software solution should be able to adapt. Westfalia’s Savanna.NET® is designed with this philosophy in mind. The solution’s support model provides a straightforward approach to ensure customer satisfaction while ensuring your system never turns into a legacy system.

Complete Support for Your Warehouse Automation

Savanna.NET® Warehouse Execution System (WES) combines a wWarehouse Mmanagement Ssystem (WMS) and wWarehouse Ccontrol sSystem (WCS) into one, unified warehouse automation platform. This enables you to eliminate awkward interfacing problems between separate WMS and WCS functionssystems, and obtain a single platform to manage all functions, and provide:

  • Scalability
  • Customization
  • Precise KPI measurement and analysis
  • Improved cost and inventory management
  • Greater operational efficiency

We support you every step of the way with your warehouse automation planning, warehouse automation implementation and ongoing service. Important features of our software and approach are summarized below.

Implementation

The first, and arguably most important, step in warehouse automation planning is to create a clear document of your project’s objectives, budget, timeline, milestones and KPIs. We will work with you to develop a rock-solid plan, based on our years of experience bringing successful automation solutions to the warehouse and distribution sector. Learn more about the implementation process.

Warehouse Execution System — Two Solutions in One

By combining WMS and WCS functions into a single Warehouse Execution System (WES), Savanna.NET® delivers a comprehensive automation solution that takes the complexity out of your operation and puts best-of-class efficiency and pinpoint cost control into it. Key benefits of our WES include improved management of personnel, better space utilization, greater inventory accuracy and better product traceability. All WES functions can be customized to fit the unique aspects of your operation. Learn more about the features and benefits of the WES.

System Design

The Savanna.NET® WES software platform is designed with the user in mind — that’s is, you. By keeping system interfaces as simple and visual as possible, we enable users with a wide range of computer and language skills to access the system and take full advantage of it to improve in their work. The WES is designed to be customizable and scalable; you can implement it comprehensively to manage all WMS and WCS functions, or implement it in parts of it now, with the ability to pushtake other functions live if and when the need arises. Learn more about the power and flexibility of our software design.

Functionality

“Robust” is an overused word in the software industry — but when used to describe the Savanna.NET® WES, it is no exaggeration. Our warehouse automation features enable you to manage and seamlessly coordinate all WMS and WCS functions, including container management, material handling equipment, material and user workflow, order management and scheduling. The platform is also equipped with security functionality that adheres to best industry practices, allowing users to view and/or edit data according to their security level as defined by you. Learn more about WES functionality.

Interface

As described earlier, our system design is intuitive, to help your organization start tapping the power of the WES without having to first spend months in the training room. In addition to the intuitive interface, the WES seamlessly manages material handling equipment and can be integrated with most ERP systems and existing operating workflow processes. Our system interface is highly customizable, enabling you to adapt it to your current technology platforms — even if they have already been customized. Learn more about the WES interface.

Reporting

The Savanna.NET® System Monitoring and Reporting Toolset (S.M.A.R.T.) offers customizable tools to enable your teams to monitor and manage material handling equipment, inventory flow, warehouse and inventory management KPIs, and other workflow activities with ease. System reporting is intuitive, customizable and backed up by our technical support team. Learn more about WES reporting.
