Growing together with w3/max

A wide variety of warehouse technologies, from lift systems to complex storage and retrieval machines, rope robotics or automated Kanban systems, linked with all relevant picking systems (pick-by-light, pick-by-voice, pick-by-beamer, RFID, barcode, etc.) result in a WMS solution that can always be adapted to the size of your company.

The logistics suite can be seamlessly integrated into your system landscape and can also be linked to subsystems if required. With the standard WMS w3/max, all known warehouse structures can be managed. Any number of warehouses and storage locations can be divided and managed in areas, zones and classes with the help of the software. w3/max is multi-client capable and multilingual.

In addition to the article master data typical for warehouse management systems, w3/max offers the option to expand article descriptions individually. Easily add, for example, data on packaging hierarchy and size, stock quantities, etc. for specific storage bins or information on stock checking at the picking location as required.
