“Software solutions such as warehouse management systems and materials flow systems are a crucial component of any materials handling solution and critical to any project’s success – regardless of whether the solution is manual, semi-automated or fully-automated.

“Software is the heartbeat of modern intralogistics solutions and we now own that core competence which means we can supply an entire suite of software and provide the 24/7 support to ensure that it operates at optimum efficiency.”
