MONTREAL, QUEBEC – TECSYS Inc. (TSX:TCS – News), an industry-leading supply chain management software company announced today a major leap forward in warehouse management with the introduction of its exclusive EliteSeries 8 Visual Logistics; a new technological innovation that will enable customers to significantly streamline putaway, picking and packing and achieve the highest in order accuracy and fill rate known to date.
“Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) have generally hit a wall in terms of additional efficiency gains,” commented Peter Brereton President & CEO, TECSYS Inc. “EliteSeries 8 represents a breakthrough that we believe can revolutionize the logistical processes in the warehouse. With our new Visual Logistics Paradigm, a new era of technological innovation has emerged, leveraging visual communication for system-directed tasks that is faster, significantly more understandable by pickers and will drive increased throughput and accuracy in the critical supply chain organizations that we serve.”
The EliteSeries 8 Visual Logistics delivers instructions to workers directly on their RF gun or handheld computer and visually communicates exactly “what, when, where, why and how” activities they can execute in an optimum time. With TECSYS’ EliteSeries Visual Logistics, workers are also empowered to access critical information to make faster decisions and accelerate their workflows, particularly in environments where literacy is an issue. It also improves training using intuitive, real-life visual modeling that enables high-volume distribution organizations to increase throughput and revenue growth.

TECSYS’ EliteSeries Visual Paradigm:
The fundamental business case for visual logistics is based on the ability to increase throughput in the warehouse; the more products that can be picked, packaged and shipped (accurately) and in the least amount of time will definitely equate to lower labor cost and improved bottom line for distribution operations. Having accurate, relevant information immediately accessible and (understandable) by workers delivers better results and enables them to act immediately, make faster decision and complete logistics cycles much faster. In essence warehouse operations will be able to do more with less.
Furthermore, a new generation of visually-driven computer users has entered the workforce, they demand ease-of-use, they are intolerant to inefficiency and have much higher expectations from the tools they use. Today’s generation is accustomed to visually-driven user interface found in computers, handheld devices and cellular phones. They expect tools to be interactive; “visual” tools that can be used to get productive work done.
Beyond the four walls of the warehouse:
While logistics operations within the four walls of the warehouse are extremely important, distribution business is heavily reliant on customer interaction, on-time delivery and customer service and satisfaction. TECSYS’ integrated suite of supply chain execution applications are warehouse-centric and its warehouse management application is complemented by distribution management, transportation management and business intelligence solutions that enable customers to seamlessly execute order-to-cash and purchase-to-pay processes without barriers.
