Körber will launch new software solutions and capabilities spanning warehouse management, warehouse control, robotics, voice and simulation to empower businesses worldwide to further digitize and automate warehouses in light of today's immense supply chain pressures.
Supply chain has moved from a back-office function to a boardroom imperative," said Richard Stewart, Executive Vice President of North America at Körber Supply Chain Software. The pandemic, labor shortages, cost increases, fuel prices, material shortages, and beyond – these challenges are real and here to stay. Unlike anyone else, Körber brings to market an unmatched depth of digital technologies that conquer these complexities.
"Digitization is a strategic priority for more than 80% of supply chain executives, Yet, many businesses struggle to digitize at the pace they need. From handling the rapid expansion of e-commerce to the increasing interconnectivity of the global economy, major technology advances are pivotal. Körber will enhance its already unrivaled portfolio of software solutions to empower businesses to drive even more value for their customers and consumers around the globe."
-Sean Elliott, Chief Technology Officer for Körber Supply Chain Software
In a rapidly growing industry, businesses need a full portfolio provider with a wide range of technologies to tackle supply chain complexity. Focused on rising consumer expectations, labor challenges and a growing emphasis on sustainability, Körber plans the current solution advances for 2022:
The cloud: As part of the Körber One platform strategy, Körber will continue bringing its solutions to the cloud to increase efficiency, reliability, resilience, green practices and cybersecurity. This includes the K.Motion Warehouse Management System (WMS), K.Sight CLASS for warehouse modelling and simulation, and Körber's series of add-ons spanning visibility to data analytics – the K.Motion Essentials.
Unified Control System (UCS): Already boasting globally successful voice solutions and the most extensive network of AMR partnerships worldwide, Körber will solidify its leading voice and robotics practice with a unified control system. The UCS will uniquely integrate and control different working models – fixed automation, voice systems, and 3rd party AMR systems – under a single tool. Availability is expected the second half of 2022.
K.Sight CLASS for operations: New advances connect data on daily operations from the WMS for real-time planning and design. The result is immediate visibility into operational health and stronger strategic planning. This includes effectively handling disruptions, e-commerce growth and heightening consumer expectations.
