- One platform to manage all transport systems
- Central control of all automation units
- Fully transparent material flows
- All logistics processes synchronized
- Process optimization based on real-time data
- More efficiency, lower costs
- Seamless integration into BOWE IQ WMS
The BOWE IQ Warehouse Control System (WCS) enables individual systems involved in the automation process to be integrated and centrally controlled in real time regardless of the manufacturer, thus guaranteeing an optimal flow of goods and materials throughout the intralogistics process. The software coordinates the movements of all automated devices in the logistics center for maximum possible efficiency. That way, the desired product gets to where it’s needed fast. The WCS routes the entire inventory – parcels, items, cartons or pallets - as efficiently as possible along the integrated warehousing technologies, as they are conveyed across the entire warehouse to their destination. Goods receipt, picking, sorting, packing and dispatch systems are precisely matched. The end-to-end workflow control principle results in optimized throughput and lower costs. Continuous identification with a barcode or RFID ensures a defined flow of items and provides seamless process monitoring.
As a fully integrated control software solution, the BOWE IQ Warehouse Control System naturally also supports smart and intuitive control of sorting systems. Thanks to the clearly structured dashboard and the use of graphics as well as real-time reports, your operators have no difficulty keeping an eye on the sorting processes at all times. For example, if there are deviations from the defined performance or if sorter chutes are full, the WCS reports this immediately. Any problems can hence be rectified right away, enabling maximum leverage to be gained from the sorter’s capacity and restricting delays to a minimum.
What’s more, our Warehouse Control Software analyzes address data, weight, dimensions and timestamps during the sorting run, in order to determine the best and cheapest mail service provider for every individual item. In the sorting logic used by the WCS, the mail pieces are automatically sorted into the appropriate output and diverting module of the selected parcel service. In addition, franking is no longer necessary, because the relevant billing data is simultaneously calculated for the customer to be invoiced individually. This opens up entirely new opportunities for optimizing your intralogistics and parcel sorting processes in the sense of Logistics 4.0.

By opting for the BOWE IQ WCS, you can’t go far wrong: you’ve taken the perfect first step on the way to optimizing your supply chain. Central control via a single platform rather than locally operated machines already saves a considerable amount of work. Our Warehouse Control System is particularly advantageous in combination with a BOWE IQ Warehouse Management System (WMS). Machine operation can then be integrated into the higher-level WMS software, which defines the functional criteria and rules for optimal workflows throughout the supply chain. The WMS never loses track of the “big picture”, so that all mechanical material movements controlled via the BOWE IQ WCS are optimally coordinated with ongoing activities and the utilization of warehouse resources at any given time. Whereas the WCS makes sure that a system moves an item, parcel or pallet and delivers it to its allocated bin or destination, the Warehouse Management System is responsible for allocating that location, taking current processes into account.
