Wynright Corporation, a component of Daifuku North America Holding Company and a leading U.S.-based provider of intelligent material handling systems, today announced the acquisition of certain assets of Blue Sky Logistics, Inc., a business intelligence software and consulting solutions company for the supply chain, in order to accelerate its current Wynsoft™ warehouse control system (WCS) applications growth.
The Insight™ software from Blue Sky Logistics, Inc. is a business intelligence solution that provides real-time visibility and turns data into actionable information to streamline operations around labor, inventory, transportation and purchasing, among others. Wynright will integrate the Insight™ suite of products into its Wynsoft™ WCS software. Wynsoft™ is the first modular, layered, mobile software solution to bridge the gap effectively between warehouse control systems (WCS), designed to direct real-time activities in the warehouse or distribution center (DC), and warehouse management systems (WMS) or ERP systems that control overall operations.
“Blue Sky’s Insight™ suite will be the engine for all of our visibility, business intelligence and historical data repository needs,” said Ron Adams, Senior Vice President of Wynright Software & Controls Solutions. “We are excited to accelerate our current Wynsoft™ application and take our customers to the next level of material handling by providing proactive data visibility to better monitor, measure and manage large, complex, multi-system environments.”
Other Blue Sky Logistics, Inc. solutions Wynright acquired include:
- DataVault – a data warehouse solution that stores data and provides visibility to historical data that powers the long term analysis of decisions, best practices and results
- Insight Scorecard™ – visual, real-time display of the key performance indicators of an individual, department, facility and anything in between
- Insight Mobile™ – ability to access business intelligence solutions from a mobile device
The addition of these software solutions will enhance Wynsoft’s™ ability to provide visibility to real-time data displays, dashboards, alerts and reporting solutions, thereby enabling the visibility and functionality Wynright’s clients demand in order to run their increasingly complex operations. Wynsoft™ is a trademark of Wynright Corporation.
