AutoScheduler – a new kind of WMS accelerator, was mentioned by Yahoo. However, the article didn´t say that WMS really need acceleration…they have been substantially unchanged for the past 20 years – focusing on “accounting” and “reacting” rather than managing and pro-acting. AutoScheduler changes all that. See the new website:

AutoScheduler.AI Launches New Approach with Its WMS Accelerator

August 19, 2020
Intelligent Warehouse Orchestration for a Faster, Smarter WMS
AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ – AutoScheduler.AI, an innovative, emerging WMS accelerator, announces a solution to orchestrate facilities and make the warehouse sexy again. AutoScheduler is a WMS accelerator that integrates seamlessly with warehouse management systems to orchestrate activities across a warehouse or campus. It adds value by improving OTIF, managing inventory, and creating dynamic schedules that change as conditions shift.
According to Gartner‘s May 2020 Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems*, “Although the WMS market is mature, we foresee the need for continued innovation in areas such as user experience, adaptability, decision support, materials handling automation integration, and work planning and optimization”.
The new launch of AutoScheduler boasts an enhanced suite of algorithms and simple cloud deployment capability. “We address a major market need exposed by the COVID-19 crisis where labor constraints have become more pronounced and minimizing inventory touches is critical,” said Keith Moore, Chief Product Officer. “For example, AutoScheduler proactively creates lower touch opportunities like cross-docking, which brings materials through one door and ships them out through the adjacent door, in order to help streamline operations.”
Continues Moore, “After being given the green light by our flagship customer, Procter & Gamble (P&G), who has been using the product for more than a decade, we’re excited to bring this solution to the supply chain industry.”
WMS Accelerators like AutoScheduler seamlessly integrate with systems like Blue Yonder WMS, providing dynamic dock scheduling, automated transfer shipments, scheduled case picking, labor management and more.
