History

The story behind the success of CIM GmbH and PROLAG®World began in 1985 in Fürstenfeldbruck near Munich. This was the year when engineer and company founder, Fritz Mayr, wrote the first PROLAG® solution for warehouse management and control in the C programming language.

In 1999, the software engineers at CIM made a major breakthrough: the PROLAG® warehouse management software was redesigned and implemented in the object-oriented programming language JAVA. This brought hardware independence, internet capability as well as simpler upgrade options. A new warehouse management solution was born – PROLAG®World.

Even back then, the system was fully browser-based and web-based, and designed for database and platform independence. CIM was a pioneer in this area, a role the company has retained to this day. Since the earliest versions of PROLAG®World, the product portfolio has been expanded to offer several tailored industry solutions, over 150 extension modules, a shipping system and a forklift routing system. The opening of further subsidiaries has helped develop regional markets as well as improve services for existing customers.

Future plans

The demands being made on WMS solutions are set to become increasingly complex in future years in view of the trends towards greater digitisation, networking and decentralisation.

CIM GmbH is already taking various measures to respond to this development in a timely manner, including more accurate tracking of forklifts and pickers, easier and quicker identification of stock and improved visualisation of warehousing processes. We are also in the process of redesigning the graphical interface in order to make it even more user-friendly.

Pricing

Every warehouse is different depending on the size and type of business and the company philosophy. Likewise, the demands made on warehouse management systems also vary meaning that there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. We offer you a Warehouse Management System which is specially tailored to your individual needs. The benefit: you only pay for the functions you really need.
