RedPrairie Corporation , the world's fastest growing supply chain company, today announced a new release of DLx(r) Warehouse with features that optimize labour productivity and facility throughput by providing sophisticated logistics concepts that minimize travel time and increase operational efficiency.
The capabilities are possible through a variety of technologies, including radio frequency, voice and RFID. Supply chain analysts consistently rate RedPrairie's DLx Warehouse as a leader in the industry.
The solution also includes a new graphical user interface, multi-warehouse support, DB2 support and RFID compliance enhancements. DLx(r) Warehouse introduces a zero-administration GUI client that automatically deploys client software updates across the network, eliminating the need for any client administration by IT personnel. The new graphical user interface provides a more ergonomic design that guides users within the environment with navigational cues. RFID compliance enhancements allow the receipt of RFID labelled products from suppliers, the printing and applying of tags to product shipped from facilities, testing of encoded EPC tags, and a summary view of all RFID activities.
"Our products continue to provide technology advances that decrease the total cost of IT ownership by eliminating the dependency on third party products, providing integration to major ERP products and optimizing computing power and capacity. Our product suite - including Warehouse, Transportation and Workforce Performance solutions - is tightly integrated and provides a common look across all modules and supports all major platforms and databases," said Tom Kozenski, Warehouse Management Product Marketing Leader.
