Honeywell has announced a new software platform for distribution centers that streamlines and simplifies complex e-commerce fulfillment operations.

The Momentum™ warehouse execution system from Honeywell Intelligrated brings together automated equipment, workflows, orders and labor in a unified platform to provide distribution center operators real-time visibility and help make operations more efficient.

The system provides e-commerce fulfillment, store replenishment, and wholesale distribution center operations with shortened order cycle times, improved order accuracy and faster deliveries.

“Online shopping, coupled with high consumer expectations for faster delivery times, is putting intense pressure on distribution centers to streamline and improve their fulfillment operations,” said Pieter Krynauw, president, Honeywell Intelligrated.

“Many of today’s warehouse execution systems are a patchwork of custom software and control solutions, so we’ve taken a vastly different, clean-sheet approach that prioritizes stability and simplicity to enable a Connected Distribution Center.”

Honeywell Intelligrated enables order fulfillment operations for more than 60 of the top 100 global retailers and half of the top 100 internet retailers through a broad portfolio of automation equipment, software, service, and support. The business helps customers gain a competitive edge and optimize operational performance through increased flexibility, efficiency, and accuracy.

Momentum is an enterprise software platform that provides distribution centers a single, centralized system to manage operations, such as automated order picking, routing of products, inventory, and labor. The software is scalable and configurable to allow customers to select from an ever-expanding list of robust modules.

Momentum offers reliability, security, and flexibility, eliminating the need for one-off customizations and third-party integrations. Customers get the exact functionality they need from a single supplier based on operational requirements and the ability to add functionality as their business dictates.

The unified platform unlocks opportunities for customers to harness big data needed to make informed business decisions. It also provides real-time visibility to allow operations managers to respond to changes as they happen.

“An increased number of available products and escalating order speeds and volumes can cause distribution centers’ systems and work processes to get out of sync, which can lead to congestion,” said Krynauw. “Momentum provides a powerful solution without the complexity, expense, and instability associated with most current warehouse execution system customizations.”

Honeywell Intelligrated is part of Honeywell’s Safety and Productivity Solutions business group, which provides a range of hardware and software solutions for distribution centers, transportation and logistics providers, retailers, direct-store delivery firms and parcel services.
