    What is HiLIS?

    A warehouse management system, or WMS for short, is software that automatically manages, controls and comprehensively maps all the processes of a warehouse and picking system, from goods receipt (or production connection) to goods dispatch.

    Our Partner

    We work with our partner HÖRMANN Pannon Software GmbH in Budapest, Hungary on the ongoing development of the HiLIS system. The company was founded in 1997 specialising in the planning and deployment of customer-specific software systems, from concept to commissioning and after-sales support.

    The focus is always on the optimization of logistics, automation and production support systems.

    High Performance, Ergonomic User Interfaces.

    HiLIS is the ideal system for high-performance, flexible warehouse management. It centrally maps all subareas of your intralogistics from goods receipt to goods dispatch, optimising system coordination without media or interface inerruptions.

    One of the most important aspects is that processes are not only controlled automatically with the option to intervene manually, but can also be optimally supervised by the warehouse staff.

    In developing the user interface, as a provider of turnkey solutions we’ve exploited all aspects of our warehouse management system expertise. Intuitive, ergonomic operation, in addition to displays on attractive user interfaces, are fundamental prerequisities for frictionless, transparent processes.
