AccellosOne Cloud WMS contains features designed to ensure efficient performance of distribution centers.
Accellos Inc., a provider of
supply chain execution software solutions, announced the launch of its
AccellosOne warehouse management system (WMS) in a cloud deployment option. The
offering will be available for review at Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2012.
The platform offers warehouse management capability in a hosted model using
enterprise cloud technology.
Key features of AccellosOne
Cloud WMS include flexible subscription pricing, technical administration such
as backup, disaster recovery and system availability monitoring provided by
Accellos, software updates included as part of the service, elastic computing
resources, the ability to personalize systems to meet the needs of specific
distribution centers and standard integration to many accounting and enterprise
resource planning (ERP) packages, including Microsoft Dynamics, Sage, and SAP
A historic number of small
and midsized businesses are turning to cloud software applications to support
their operations because of the flexible pricing, speed of deployment and
simplicity it brings the IT team, said Chad Collins, Accellos chief marketing
officer. We expect this deployment option will allow even more SMBs [small and
midsize businesses] to take advantage of full-featured WMS.
The AccellosOne Cloud WMS
contains features designed to ensure efficient performance of distribution
centers, including inbound order processing, inventory control, optimized
tasking, wave planning and outbound order fulfillment. Additional modules from
the AccellosOne platform can be added to the AccellosOne Cloud WMS, including
dock door scheduling, supply chain business intelligence, document management
and third-party logistics (3PL) billing.
The AccellosOne platform is
perfectly suited for operating in an enterprise cloud due to the rich user
interface which runs in a Web browser and the inherent multitenancy of the
platform, said Ross Elliott, Accellos chief technology officer. Additionally,
our ERP connectors are available to ensure seamless communication between the
WMS and ERP even if the ERP is deployed on-premise.
The company also announced
that it has made AccellosOne electronic data interchange (EDI) for Microsoft
Dynamics GP and AccellosOne Collect for Microsoft Dynamics GP available in Data
Resolutions enterprise cloud. This allows customers to run their ERP, EDI and
bar-coding solutions in a single cloud environment. The EDI and bar-coding
solutions are available for sale through a network of VARs who provide the
software, hosting and support for a single subscription fee.
Similar to the EDI product,
AccellosOne Collect for Microsoft Dynamics GP was built and integrated
specifically for companies running Microsoft Dynamics GP as a single, embedded
system. AccellosOne Collect for Microsoft Dynamics GP enables companies with manufacturing
and distribution needs to automate their manual warehouse processes, while
providing the user with real-time information to keep track of inventory.
