A successful CeMAT 2016 for CIM GmbH - Picking by smartphone attracts large visitor numbers


Just a few days after the end of CeMAT 2016, logistics software manufacturer CIM GmbH can look back on a very successful trade fair presence. The company even recorded a slight rise in visitor numbers compared to 2014. Many prospective customers took the chance to pick articles live at CIM’s stand using the PROLAG®World Warehouse Management Software and were impressed by the product’s flexibility. The many discussions with visitors clearly highlighted the trends for the coming years.

True to this year’s CeMAT motto, Smart Supply Chain Solutions, CIM’s stand in the Logistics IT area demonstrated how the logistics software PROLAG®World enables perfect networking and intelligent control of processes. »2016 has brought a significant increase in demand for standardised software with simple options for network management and informative live analysis tools,« reports Fritz Mayr, managing director of CIM GmbH.

The need for reliable and safe cloud solutions is also increasing internationally. »Our standardised, cross-platform software which can be personalised with over 200 additional modules allows us to map customer requirements quickly and unbureaucratically,« says Mayr. For over 15 years now, CIM GmbH has been offering their software as a cloud solution alongside the stationary installation. Visitors were able to see for themselves just how reliable this variant is.

Real-time picking in the cloud attracts large numbers of visitors

CIM’s focus at CeMAT 2016 was on real-time picking by smartphone or scanner. Trade fair visitors got the opportunity to pick confectionery items from the »picking box« and view real-time inventory updates instantly on the integrated dashboard.

Thanks to the fact that the Warehouse Management Software PROLAG®World is fully internet-enabled, real-time data can be displayed any time, any place. At CeMAT, the smartphones/scanners communicated via wireless LAN with the Warehouse Management Software, which is run in a cloud-computing environment at CIM’s computing centre in Munich.

Focus on specific industry solutions

Visitors also showed a keen interest in other CIM products such as the shipping software PROSEND®, the production logistics solution, the forklift routing system, automated storage system connectivity and the industry packages. PROLAG®World Trade & Retail, Production, 3PL and Health Care are specially tailored to meet the logistics specifications of the relevant industry sectors. These packages are also modular and internet-enabled and are in operation in small, midsize, large and automated warehouses.
