For years, warehouse management systems were not thought to be ideal for Cloud deployment. Complete reliance on Internet connectivity and the need for seamless integration with complex systems including material handling solutions were often deciding factors for many businesses. Today WMS is no longer limited to on-premise implementations. The integration barrier has been reduced as warehouse workers, systems and equipment can connect wirelessly with WMS.

The monthly subscription fee includes access to technical support and includes additional features such as server maintenance, backup, disaster recovery and technical support.
