MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - Jun 17, 2014) - HighJump Software, a global provider of supply chain management software, announced today that Mitsubishi Brazil has selected the HighJump™ Warehouse Advantage warehouse management system (WMS). The solution, to be deployed by Otimis, HighJump Software's partner in Brazil, will be installed at the advanced parts receiving distribution center in São Paulo and at its automobile production plant in Catalão.
The open architecture of the HighJump WMS allows it to be configured to the exact needs of Mitsubishi Brazil now and into the future. It will manage the inbound parts, inventory control and tracking, as well as the production lines throughout its large and dynamic operations. In addition, the company will have a foundation of best practices for receiving, put-away/flow-through, order processing replenishment and more. Greater visibility of inventory and labor will support more efficient planning and operations.
