Compiere Inc, the global leader in open source business solutions, announced immediate availability of the industry's first comprehensive Warehouse Management System (WMS) developed on an open source platform. Integrated with Compiere ERP, Compiere Warehouse Management helps companies increase visibility into warehouse operations, reduce costs and improve customer satisfaction by automating inbound and outbound logistics within the warehouse.

The Compiere solution provides full WMS functionality at a fraction of the cost of traditional, non-integrated, proprietary systems and can be adapted quickly and easily to changing user and business requirements.

Specsavers Optical Group, the world's largest privately owned eyewear retailer with more than 1,000 stores throughout Europe and Australasia and nearly $2 billion in annual sales, collaborated with Compiere on the design of Compiere Warehouse Management.

Specsavers currently uses Compiere's open source ERP solution to manage accounting, purchasing, sales, materials management and distribution processes, consolidating store-level transactions at the corporate and country levels. Specsavers chose to work with Compiere to develop a WMS that would improve productivity throughout its global warehouse operations.

"We already had an excellent relationship with Compiere. When we were looking for a warehouse management system to fit our global requirements, they were the obvious choice," said Michel Khan, CIO with Specsavers Optical Group. "Compiere's open source approach, their expertise and our practical experience in different markets with different distribution models across the globe made for a perfectly symbiotic collaboration. The result, Compiere Warehouse Management, will extend the flexibility and cost savings we have already gained from the Compiere ERP system into our warehouses across the globe."

Compiere Warehouse Management is integrated with Compiere ERP purchasing, materials management, order management, manufacturing and global financial management capabilities. The product enables directed putaway, picking and replenishment through a first-of-its-kind customizable rules engine, improving productivity, space utilization and customer satisfaction.

In addition, the product supports wave planning that simulates and recommends the most efficient picking process to satisfy customer demand. Warehouse management rules and processes, like all Compiere capabilities, are quickly and easily customized to meet changing user and business requirements - without programming.

Don Klaiss, president and CEO, Compiere, Inc. said, "Our distribution, retail and manufacturing customers are seeking better control over their warehouse and business application costs. Compiere Warehouse Management offers a winning combination of essential warehouse management functionality, a flexible web-based technology platform and open source economics, all backed by services and support from the Compiere Partner Network."

With more than 1.4 million software downloads, Compiere Inc, founded in 1999, provides a comprehensive and adaptable web-based business solution available on a low cost, open source platform. Compiere's solutions, which earned InfoWorld's 2008 Best of Enterprise Resource Planning Bossie Award, enable a broad range of industries such as distribution, manufacturing, retail, health care, and professional services companies to improve productivity, lower costs, and improve customer service.
