3M targets small businesses

3M Supply Chain Solutions has launched a warehouse management system aimed specifically at small and medium enterprises.
The HighJump Warehouse Advantage-45 system pomises benefits such as visibility and tracking of inbound orders, accurate receiving, directed put-away, rapid picking, shipping and replenishment, and can be extended to accommodate business expansion and changing needs. It is built on the same technology as 3M’s tier 1 HighJump Warehouse Advantage WMS.
The system has been designed to be fully implemented within 45 business days, so as to provide a rapid return on investment.
Leo Valentin, general manager, 3M Supply Chain Solutions, EMEA, said: “We’re excited to launch the HighJump Warehouse Advantage-45 solution to meet a growing need for small- to mid-size companies to manage their distribution and growth.”
A flexible pricing structure for the product includes both license and subscription-based options. Companies can purchase only the functionality they need, then add more complex features and modules as needed over time.
