HIGHJUMP DIGITALLY TRANSFORMS RETAIL SUPPLY CHAIN OF THE FUTURE
Cloud, warehouse control, voice and simulation revolutionise retail execution to meet ever-higher consumer expectations
Posted by Heather Smith, Communication Specialist, HighJump
At NRF 2019, HighJump unveiled how it will lead the digital transformation (DX) of retail execution. Through the cloud, warehouse control, voice technology and warehouse simulation, HighJump empowers retailers worldwide with the connected, automated supply chain of the future.
Consumer expectations for purchasing convenience, delivery speed, choice and adaptability are rising. This is in addition to new business models spanning eCommerce and subscription services – all in light of a rapidly shrinking workforce. As a result, retailers need the flexibility and visibility to make smarter, faster decisions for their supply chains. HighJump’s latest advances make this possible, enabling retailers to seamlessly implement new workflows and emerging technologies.
HighJump Now: This global initiative is strengthening supply chains worldwide with the cloud. Companies gain the capacity and secure environment required for advanced data analytics and technologies spanning artificial intelligence (AI), robotics,blockchain, IoT and machine learning.
HighJump Warehouse Control System (WCS) : The HighJump WCS uniquely creates a single point of data and communication amongst all material handling equipment (MHE) and the warehouse management system (WMS). This provides visibility to enhance workflows in real-time, such as integrating and managing autonomous mobile robots.
HighJump CLASS: HighJump’s simulation solution allows retailers to test warehouse layouts in a virtual world. Both 2D and 3D visualizations capitalize on supply chain data to enhance existing and effectively design new facilities.
HighJump Voice : HighJump’s voice technology is part automation, part human interaction – empowering and attracting talent with future technologies. This includes using voice to direct automated vehicles or as the primary means of direction with augmented reality (AR) systems.
Today’s consumer has ever-higher expectations for purchasing convenience, delivery speed, choice and adaptability. More options for consumers spell greater complexity for the supply chain. It’s no longer enough to fulfill demand – you must anticipate it, predict it and make smarter, faster decisions.
In a high volume, complex logistics environment, the shift to an on-demand model can be challenging – but failing to adapt poses even greater risks. You need a technology partner with a proven track record of delivering efficiency and a lower cost of ownership today, plus the flexibility and innovation to help you realize your strategic roadmap tomorrow and beyond.
At HighJump, we’re integrating our proven solutions for the warehouse, transportation and logistics ecosystem with emerging technologies – from around our company and around the world – to build the supply chain of the future. Leveraging advanced cloud technology, we can help you ride the wave of data to achieve greater efficiency, uncover actionable insights, and stay ahead of the curve.
