Gartner notes that “Supply chain and IT leaders can use this Critical
Capabilities research as part of an evaluation of WMS products. The

differentiating functional capabilities evaluated across four major use
cases of warehouse and distribution center operational complexity.”

(DOM) and other supply chain software solutions, was the second-ranked
WMS provider in each of the following use cases: Level 2/3 Warehouse
Operations, Level 4 Warehouse Operation, and Level 5 Warehouse Operation

“Softeon has long been known for its robust and innovative functionality
in WMS and beyond,” notes Dan Gilmore, Chief Marketing Officer at
Softeon. “We believe that the results of the Gartner analysis, after an
extremely rigorous and detailed process, validate our position as a WMS
industry capabilities leader for the wide range of DC operational

Gilmore added that, “Advanced functionality is a key element in our
track record of 100% deployment success and highly satisfied customers –
a pedigree we feel no other WMS provider can match. Softeon delivers
success – every time.”

Softeon’s advanced WMS capabilities include task optimization, order
picking, e-fulfillment, labor and resource management, advanced
cartonization and pallet building, powerful kitting and assembly, along
with materials handling and ERP integration. Softeon WMS powers many
great logistics performers including Duluth Trading Co., The Honest
Company, Sears Home Services, DB Schenker, Casey’s General Stores,
Lenova, Denso, and Suncast.

Softeon continues to “up the ante” with its Distribution Center of the
Future innovation lab, which has already lead to the release of the new
Order Fulfillment System (OFS), a unique and powerful solution that
directly manages a variety of picking subsystems (smart carts, Voice,
pick-to-light, put walls, mobile robots, etc.) without the need for any
third-party control systems.

This system significantly reduces hardware costs for Softeon customers
and eliminates the need for interfaces from the WMS to these proprietary
control systems. More importantly, it allows Softeon to apply advanced
order planning logic in combination with sophisticated slotting and
replenishment planning and execution to drive double-digit gains in
picking efficiency – critical to keeping e-fulfillment costs under

This is all available on Softeon’s market-leading integrated software
platform, based on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), a single data
model across the entire suite, delivering fully web-native and
Cloud-ready solutions that can be easily configured to meet
customer-specific processing requirements without the need for
modifications. Softeon WMS is the richest in functionality and
flexibility – right “out-of-the-box.”
