It has served you well for those 10, 15 or even 20 years. Like having to say goodbye to a loyal old dog, at some point, it’s time to put your WMS to sleep.
It’s time to get a new one.
And like that old dog, maybe you are wishing you just had a year or two more. After all, you’ve been through quite a bit together.
It may not work like it used to, but it’s still reliable; comfortable. Or maybe you just want to take it out back and shoot it – put both of you out of your misery!
What if you could get that extra year or two or five out of that old dog of a system? What if you could continue to enhance your system without having to call the vendor; without having to touch the source code; and with minimal help from your always too busy IT staff?
Adaptive software products are arriving on the market. These are products that enable you, the user, to extend the functionality of your current system by building on top of it.
Essentially, these are programming platforms that automate the process of building new features and functions so that users, can contribute more to the extension of the system.
They use application technologies available today to interact with the WMS databases for extraction, insertion, and visibility.
