This IDC TechBrief describes warehouse execution system software that integrates and controls a variety of automation and execution processes deployed in a warehouse or distribution center.
According to Roderick Gaines, research director, Worldwide Supply Chain Strategies: Warehousing, Inventory, and Order Management at IDC, "The increasing adoption of automation in warehouses is creating a necessity for a warehouse execution system that can integrate with this hardware. With efficiency, agility, and accuracy being the top focus in warehouse operations, companies are recognizing the value that a warehouse execution system can provide. As robotics and other automating technologies become more widely used, companies will seek an execution application that can help businesses improve their warehouse operations."
