WMS Software Vendor Datex Commemorates 40th Year in Business

Award-winning software vendor celebrates 40 year commitment to supply chain businesses

Clearwater FL (March 22, 2018) Datex Corporation, an award-winning developer of Microsoft-based warehouse management software recently celebrated its 40year anniversary of successful operation as a provider of technology solutions to the supply chain, transportation logistics industry.

The company began operations in Montreal, Canada in 1978.  Initially a repair depot for industrial computing devices such as barcode readers, scanners and printers, the company expanded by providing repair service for devices no longer serviced by OEM manufacturers.

Over time, Datex recognized the potential to expand by selling enterprise-level data capture and automatic identification solutions to retailers, manufacturers, third party logistics providers and others in the supply chain logistics industry.  By partnering with some of the largest, most influential manufacturers in the barcode technology industry, Datex was able to reach a wider audience for its solutions and penetrate new markets.  During this period, warehouse and 3PL operators turned to technology to provide greater visibility, help streamline operations and reduce costs.

As the supply chain logistics industry increasingly embraced the use of more technology, Datex again widened its range of solutions.  In 2002, Datex introduced its signature product, a warehouse management system (WMS) based on leading edge Microsoft technology.  The software is Microsoft .NET-based and relies on Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation to provide industry-leading flexibility and scalability.  Datex rewrote the WMS software in 2007.  This effort resulted in a significant increase in functionality and product evolution.

Datex software offerings include modules for third party logistics (3PL), manufacturing, procurement, cartonization and shipping management.  Datex remains an industry partner to industry leaders including Zebra Technologies, Honeywell, Dell and CipherLab.

Today, Datex warehouse management software is used across the world.  The Datex WMS has repeatedly been awarded accolades by Inbound Logistics and Food Logistics Magazines.  Datex is a Microsoft Gold Partner for Software Application Development.  This designation is exclusive and distinguishes the top 1% of the 640,000 Microsoft partners worldwide.  To receive this designation, Datex had to demonstrate its “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet the needs of its clients using the latest Microsoft technology.  Microsoft performed an evaluation which included validation of the company’s high level of customer service and client satisfaction rate.  In addition, Datex was validated for its ability to meet Microsoft’s rigorous standards for technical expertise, staffing capacity and other factors.

“This anniversary is quite a milestone” remarked Datex CEO Samir Armanious.  “We are proud of all that our company has accomplished and are grateful that our clients have trusted us to help them solve their most challenging problems.  Our company has always grown by working hand-in-hand as partners with our clients so that they can be more competitive and profitable.  We look forward to continually enhancing our technology and to providing more services in the future.”
