AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Reddwerks Corporation, a leading provider of Warehouse Execution Software (WES), announces today that Scholastic Corporation has selected the Reddwerks Warehouse Controls (WCS) module to align its existing material handling equipment and conveyor controls layer. Scholastic Corporation is a leading U.S. publisher and distributor of educational materials for schools, teachers, parents, and children.
Reddwerks provides customers with real-time alignment and execution for order processing. While traditional distribution centers relegate their WCS to a conveyor “traffic cop,” the Reddwerks solution leverages real-time decision engines to intelligently drive orders across the facility, maximizing equipment efficiency.
Reddwerks WCS will integrate with Scholastic’s existing Warehouse Management System (WMS) and provide them with the ability to intelligently automate the conveyor routing of cases across multiple pick areas, QC stations, and the shipping sorter. The WCS will continuously re-align routing in real time based on events, such as conveyor jams or downlane congestion. In addition, the system will leverage weigh-in-motion sensors to detect and re-route containers with pick errors, leading to greater accuracy in shipments and decreased return costs. The Reddwerks system provides Scholastic with full-scale visibility through a 100% web-based, user-specific UI, and comprehensive HMI, providing real-time alerts and function-specific reporting in areas such as labor productivity and equipment utilization.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Scholastic,” said Alex Ramirez, CEO of Reddwerks. “We believe Scholastic presents a unique opportunity to demonstrate the value that WES can offer to a modern distribution center. We applaud Scholastic’s commitment towards implementing our innovative solutions, and look forward to building a successful relationship.”
At Reddwerks, we view order fulfillment within the four walls of a distribution center as a single, interconnected process. Our Warehouse Execution Software, powered by Distribution Science®, combines execution with intelligence. We synchronize the discrete and low-level processes to create a real-time decision engine that drives labor and equipment at the highest efficiency. Our software provides customers the operational agility they need to handle the demands of an omni-channel environment.
