7 tips when considering a WMS

Before we get to our tips, let’s start by saying that the chances of finding an off-the-shelve WMS that suits all your needs are close to zero.

Still using Windows CE or are you ready for something more 21st century?

Windows CE was presented to the world by Microsoft in 1996 (!).  So that was in the previous century at the same time Microsoft released Internet Explorer 3. The operating system was also included with the good old Sega Dreamcast and Pocket PC at the time. Do you remember? In the following years this light version of Windows XP got a number of upgrades up to the latest version – Embedded Compact 2013 – in June 2013.

We have left 2013 behind us years ago but we still find many Windows CE based scanners in warehouses. While this really is no longer necessary, because let’s be honest; this system is outdated, slow and often unsafe because development has stopped. But the best reason to stop using it, is that there are better alternatives out there that can even run on existing scanners. Want to know more? Contact us and we will tell you all about it and, even better, show you the possibilities!
