Canadian firm Pivotree has launched a warehouse management system (WMS) to eliminate friction in warehouse operations by reducing costs and improving order fulfilments through inventory accuracy and increased visibility.

The platform supports multiple brands and warehouses with complex and varied business processes on a single, shared SaaS infrastructure. It complements and integrates into Pivotree’s supply chain and overall commerce portfolio, including IBM Sterling OMS (order management system) and Fluent Commerce OMS platforms and services.

With this most recent expansion of services and reinvestment in WMS to complement OMS implementations, Pivotree says it is supporting users across the entirety of their frictionless commerce and supply chain digital transformation. The improved system can increase warehouse operations efficiency through a flexible, headless technical stack and compostable architecture.

“Our supply chain WMS customers spoke, and we listened,” said Jim Brochu, general manager at Pivotree. “With the launch of our own SaaS-based WMS platform, we will be able to simplify integrations while we seamlessly deliver a functionally rich, scalable WMS. By leveraging modern analytics and user experience, our customers achieve over a 20% reduction in labour costs and technology spend over legacy platforms. We’re also partnering with leading AMR [autonomous mobile robot] and IoT companies to create an open ecosystem of fulfilment innovators.”

Pivotree’s digital products and managed and professional services help provide B2B2C digital businesses with an end-to-end service to manage complex digital commerce platforms, along with ongoing support from strategic planning through product selection, deployment and hosting, to data and supply chain management.

“Our goal is to help drive the next generation supply chain,” said Abhishek Mishra, product manager at Pivotree. “We are dedicated to eliminating redundancies, inaccuracies, inefficiencies and latencies to ensure we are optimising warehouse operations, especially as the world continues to deal with supply chain issues. By integrating seamlessly with other platforms and services, Pivotree’s WMS is able to draw benefits from commerce ready e2e supply chain fulfilment without loss of functionality, disruption to operations or requiring an expensive implementation.”

Pivotree designs, builds and manages digital platforms in commerce, data management and supply chain for more than 250 retail and branded manufacturers globally. Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, it has offices and customers in the Americas, Emea and Apac.
