HighJump Software  announced the launch of the HighJump App Station, the next generation in adaptable supply chain management software. The HighJump App Station is a collection of supply chain workflows that HighJump customers can browse and add to their warehouse management system (WMS) anytime, similar to adding new apps to a smart phone. It provides a new way to quickly and easily deploy new functionality, giving customers immediate access to new supply chain innovations.

The HighJump App Station solves many of the common problems of traditional WMS software, including difficult and costly upgrades, “application bloat”, endless interdependent configuration switches, and risky source code modifications. The HighJump App Station solves these problems by allowing customers to select and install only the new features they need, without the endless code expansion and support expense associated with features they don’t use. The HighJump App Station packages new functionality in a way that’s fast and easy to deploy; customers can install apps themselves, some install in minutes. All apps are fully tested and backed by HighJump Support.

A video to further explain the HighJump App Station is available.

Through the HighJump App Station, customers will be able to:
• Access a steady stream of new supply chain innovations
• Maintain only the functionality they need
• Keep scheduled upgrades quick and simple
• Personalize new apps without disturbing existing supply chain workflows
• Add functionality without costly, time-consuming custom coding

“The HighJump App Station is a natural evolution in HighJump’s long history providing adaptable supply chain solutions.  It provides our customers even greater control over their systems and continuous access to supply chain innovations,” said Russell Fleischer, CEO, HighJump Software. “We architect our solutions according to customer and market feedback, and the HighJump App Station empowers our customers to rapidly add new functionality while minimizing risk and cost to their businesses.”
