Keeping pace with perpetually increasing retail store and e-commerce fulfillment demands is more challenging than ever. Rising consumer expectations and shrinking order cycle times are creating unprecedented complexities and driving the need for flawless execution from every warehouse automation system and process within the four walls of the distribution center (DC). With next- and even same-day delivery quickly becoming expected service levels, DC operations have very little margin for error. And as the competitive retail landscape evolves over the next few years, companies must be prepared to adapt quickly, grow and elevate their capabilities — or risk getting left behind their competition.
Honeywell Intelligrated’s Momentum software suite is designed to address e-commerce fulfillment challenges by orchestrating nearly every aspect of automated warehouse execution — from multiple systems and order fulfillment processes to labor management, workload balancing and real-time, decision-making capabilities. Momentum is much more than a next-generation warehouse execution system (WES). It is a purpose-built suite of fulfillment software with a supporting technology infrastructure that enables seamless scalability, future-proof flexibility and the data-driven intelligence to optimize your operation in real time to achieve peak levels of productivity, efficiency and end-to-end DC performance.
A complete warehouse execution ecosystem
Whether it’s time to maximize the utilization of your existing DC’s resources, introduce new robotics and/or warehouse automation systems, or add all-new facilities to your fulfillment network, Momentum gives you a strong foundation for continuous growth that won’t crumble under the weight of e-commerce pressures. By combining modular applications of the most critical DC functions, a secure and stable data analytics core, and seamless system and asset integration, Momentum’s warehouse execution ecosystem offers retailers an alternative to the patchwork of multiple vendors, incompatible machine controls and stranded islands of automation.
This powerful fulfillment platform removes proprietary constraints, alleviates custom integration and configuration headaches, and greatly simplifies the complexities associated with the transition to greater degrees of warehouse automation. Momentum gives you the extensibility to add new automation, functionalities and fulfillment processes as needed, so your business can grow to meet ever-changing customer demands or business requirements.
