Best Practices Plus Highly Adaptable Architecture: HighJump Warehouse Management System (WMS)
Optimize Distribution From Raw Materials to Finished Goods with HighJump Warehouse Management Software -- On-Premise or in the Cloud
Space, inventory, equipment and people. Optimizing your distribution operations requires you to effectively manage all of these important resources. Selecting the right warehouse management system (WMS) is imperative to keep inventory moving and customer shipments on schedule. HighJump provides the means to ensure fast, accurate fulfillment through directed, optimized workflow.
The HighJump warehouse management system manages some of the most highly-regulated and complex distribution environments in the world. HighJump warehouse management software gives companies across industries a foundation of best practices for receiving, put-away/flow-through, inventory management, order processing, replenishment, pick/pack, loading and shipping, as well as the ability to build their own company-specific businesses processes using our adaptability tools.
Simplifed Warehouse Management System Upgrades
When you upgrade your HighJump warehouse management system, any unique configurations you have in place will automatically carry forward to the new version. In addition to the platform upgrades, HighJump provides a steady stream of new supply chain workflows, from which users can pick and choose only those workflows they want. Many HighJump warehouse management software customers perform their warehouse management system upgrades on their own; this can drastically reduce the total cost of ownership of the HighJump WMS. Customers may also request upgrade assistance at a low fixed cost if they choose.
Lighten the IT Load and Accelerate Implementation With a Warehouse Management System In the Cloud
HighJump Software now offers its warehouse management system in a cloud deployment model, eliminating much of the cost and administration time necessitated by installed software.
With HighJump Warehouse Management Software in the cloud, HighJump experts host and maintain the WMS application and hardware infrastructure for you. You access the WMS via a Web browser and gain the functional benefits of a rapidly-implemented WMS without the capital expense, hardware costs or IT drain.
The "App Store" for Supply Chain Software: The HighJump App Station

Optimizing the Container Packing Process in Your Warehouse
Develop efficient plans to build cartons, pallets, trailers and ocean containers
Many companies today face increasingly complicated processing requirements in the fulfillment and distribution of their products. For example, changes in order profiles are driving more full-case and split-case picking, and rules surrounding carton and pallet builds are more and more complex. With HighJump™ Container Advantage working as part of your HighJump warehouse management system (WMS), you can develop an efficient plan to build cartons, pallets, trailers and ocean containers as part of distribution processes. This solution improves efficiency by selecting the number and size of cartons needed to pack orders for shipment based on each item's dimensional cube, orientation restrictions, stacking factors, weight and compatibility with other items.
Save Money and Reduce Returns
In addition to saving time, packing materials and containers, HighJump Container Advantage reduces operating and transportation costs as well as product damage that leads to costly returns.
Benefits of Directed Container Packing
- Reduce packing and shipping costs
- Boost productivity
- Reduce shipping damage, and therefore returns
- Increase throughput
- Reduce worker injury
Enhancing Your Warehouse Management System (WMS) With Advanced Slotting Capabilities
Your customers expect faster and more frequent order fulfillment than ever before. In order to accomplish this and remain as efficient as possible, your fulfillment center needs to be re-configured frequently to meet changing customer demands. The proper slotting of your facility will aid you in meeting these challenges.
Warehouse slotting can increase productivity and maximize ROI
The HighJump™ Slotting Advantage solution empowers you to re-slot your warehouse or distribution center without work stoppages or the time-consuming effort to re-enter the new slotting plan into HighJump Warehouse Advantage. You are able to create and maintain an optimal warehouse layout and product placement strategy that reduces travel times and optimizes material handling and space efficiency.
With HighJump Slotting Advantage you can also perform detailed slotting analysis integrated with the HighJump warehouse management systems (WMS). Using an array of algorithms, HighJump Slotting Advantage analyzes product history, demand, lead time, velocity and special handling characteristics. This information is then used to calculate the most cost-efficient bin size and location for a given product based on the required service level within the available physical space. Through the use of advanced algorithms, HighJump slotting software can also recommend the most cost-effective material flow path and identify optimal inventory levels and reorder points for each product.
- Facilitate fast response to changes occurring in your business
- Identify trends
- Evaluate historical slotting decisions
Accelerate Order Fulfillment With Voice-Enabled Distribution
Real-Time, Voice-Enabled Communication Between Distribution Center Workers and the Warehouse Management System
The HighJump Warehouse Management System (WMS) offers full integration with Vocollect’s Voice-Directed Distribution®, giving you real-time, voice-enabled communication between distribution center workers and the WMS. You’ll have up-to-the second inventory consumption updates as well as improvements in productivity and fulfillment accuracy. This is possible through a range of voice-enabled picking options configurable by warehouse, specific pick area or specific employee. Managers also have a variety of options for assigning picking methods to ensure the picking strategy meets the warehouse’s total shipment volume requirements.
Voice enablement significantly reduces training time for new employees, because it relies on easy-to-follow voice prompts and voice access to verbal help functions.
HighJump Offers a Better Approach to Voice-Enabled Picking Integration
Unlike competitive approaches that use middleware to integrate WMS and voice technology, HighJump Software provides a direct interface to Vocollect that enables you to have real-time control over your dynamic warehouse environments.
Benefits of Voice-Enabled Distribution:
- Integrate easily with HighJump Warehouse Advantage
- Improve throughput
- Reduce new employee training time
- Improve safety with hands-free and eyes-free picking
- Leverage configurable, voice-enabled picking options
