Benefits

Like the rest of SOLOCHAIN™’s WMS, MES and EAM suite, the carousel module user interface is completely web–based. This translates into a simple intuitive interface that can be used with a touch screen or a conventional mouse.

But most importantly it means that you do not have to manage complex deployment of new releases on every client station. As soon as a new version is deployed on the server, it becomes available for everyone immediately.

Embedded within a complete WMS and MES for off-carousel operations.
The carousel module is tightly integrated in SOLOCHAIN™’s WMS and MES modules. So if you run a complex distribution or manufacturing operation, you get a comprehensive set of functionality right out of the box, without the requirements to build additional system interfaces. This provides you with one single point to control your inventory in real time with a real time total visibility of your operation when required.


Easy to integrate with your ERP/Financial system

The carousel module rests on SOLOCHAIN™’s core technology that provides a robust platform to integrate with any ERP system. A comprehensive set of touch points allow out of the box configuration of complex interfaces to provide a smooth continuity between the carousel module and your ERP processes.


Multi-site and multi-carousel management

The centralized server platform allows you to manage multi carousel in a single site or on different sites. This provides easy centralized and remote management for all of your carousels, regardless of their location
