Shiraz Warehouse Control System – The Order Fulfillment Engine


W&H Systems provides an Order Fulfillment Engine, called Shiraz Warehouse Control System. It features pre-engineered modules focused on Omni Channel distribution. Shiraz integrates easily with order fulfillment technologies, ERP systems, and Warehouse Management Systems. It directs operations for returns, shipping and manifesting, labeling, packing, order consolidation, labor and task management, packaging sortation, and order picking. Shiraz fulfillment concepts must be flexible and able to pick slow, medium, and fast-moving products, and then pack them via manual, semi-automated, or automated packing procedures.
