A flexible WMS that meet every requirements

The experience have always been good or exceptional. Never have their implementation team or support team not been able to help realize the idea we had. We also have a highly automated Distribution Center which required a lot of custom integration and the creation of a few very specific processes and in all those cases the Generix Group WMS was always able to provide those requirements while being very cost efficient.

Pros

Generix Group WMS is a robust solution that offers all the main processes that a DC or Warehouse needs, but most importantly it has the flexibility to adapt to every customer's needs without having the spend a lot on customization. It structure allow for the customer superuser to make a lot of visual and level 1 process changes with give us a lot of flexibility and agility in responding to the ever undergoing changes that the retail business needs to continue to excel in offering top service for our customers in both retail fulfillment and e-com fulfillment.

Cons

At first, the version we were using was missing logic for maintaining the database performance. All of this was fixed with the help of Generix Group once we raised this issue. The latest version of the software is now including the feature.

Reasons for Choosing SOLOCHAIN WMS

They were the most flexible solution that could evolve with us as our customer and retail needs were changing.

Advanced WMS with all the neccisary features

This is a good product and provides all the requirements for my customers warehouses. This should be on a your list if you are looking at a new WMS.

Pros

Generix WMS (previously Sologlobe WMS) is a highly configurable product and provides all the features you might need in a warehouse. This product has a feature set that put's it almost on par with tier 1 WMS systems with a lower cost and a usable interface. Unlike many of the competitors, Generix WMS has all the depth needed for even the most complex warehouse design. Most features can be setup via configurations which can be accessed by the administrator. This extends into all aspects of the warehouse meaning that with Generix WMS you do not need to conform your warehouse to the way the WMS does things. For example, Generix supports user defined pick paths using may different methodologies. You set your warehouse up how you want to flow. Then you can use just about any picking methodology you may want and are not limited to just one type of picking. You can even change picking on a order by order basis. Other areas are just as configurable such as Receiving, put away, combining & shipping. Additional 3rd party partnerships also allow for add on products to integrate best of breed in non-wms areas like labls and shipping.

Cons

As with any product Generix WMS has some negatives: -- Support is a bit slow. Wait times for resolution can be way too long. -- Integrations to ERP and business systems is complex and costly. You cannot access the code of Generix WMS and thus must use their team for much of this process. -- Upgrade process is complex. Generix breaks off a code base when you install and then customizes from there. Think of each it like a new Linux Distro. Once the distro breaks off it becomes it's own code base and must be maintained separately from the parent distro. Upgrades are not automatic with this model and thus require all previous customization to reviewed if you want to upgrade. Since integrations are not built in this makes the upgrade process very time consuming and costly. In my experience it does not happen often due the complexity.

The overall experience from my user role as an admin was very positive. The people I dealt with at Generix which was mostly [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] in the last few years, were very helpful. They would always try their best to get the answer or put in the "fix" that we needed in a timely manner.

Pros

The software made it very easy to keep track of all goods and it was easy to move parts throughout the buildings and rooms and get data out of the system exporting it to excel.

Cons

I would say that the thing that we liked least was that we didn't really have control of the database and we had to rely on Generix to make any changes or customize a lot of things that we needed to do, and most of that was for an extra cost.

Reasons for Choosing SOLOCHAIN WMS

I'm sorry but I was not involved in choosing Solochain in the beginning.

A robust and scaleable enterprise WMS solution

Integrating Solochain with our existing ERP solution and delivering real-time inventory visibility were our key objectives. Eliminating manual processes through automated data exchanges between our ERP and WMS systems enhanced the accuracy, timeliness, and availability of our critical data. This gave us the agility we needed to make faster, better-informed, data-driven decisions. Working with the Solochain team was a pleasure. We worked collaboratively to establish the deliverables, milestones, and timelines for the project. They were very knowledgable and we were able to draw upon their past experience and insights to the benefit of our project.

Pros

We are most impressed by the exceptional inventory management and traceability features of this software. Solochain lets us track every receipt, move, and consumption across the entire enterprise at a very granular level. From the receiving of raw materials, through the entire manufacturing process to the distribution of finished goods, Solochain provides the end to end inventory visibility, controls, and traceability that we were looking for.

Cons

Presenting large amounts of data in a web browser or handheld scanning device can be challenging. Fortunately, we were able to deal with this through careful planning and working with the Solochain team to customize specific screens to meet our needs.
