KEEP UP WITH OUR SOFTWARE RELEASES

Upgrading your software with new releases means access to new functionality, but also costs time and money in training and technology investments. Therefore, we bundle our releases into new versions of Astro WMS® twice a year. Letting you keep up with new trends, and still have time to focus on your business.

With 40 years in the business, we know that the world of warehouse management is ever evolving. And so is Astro WMS®. Our core idea and ambitions remain at the heart of our business, but since market demands, trends, and technology is constantly changing, we must too.

Our development teams always scout for new trends and partners, speak to our customers about their needs and develop new ideas to keep ahead. And then we gather all this creativity into two software releases per year, one in the spring and one in the fall. That is often enough to let our costumers stay agile, without being strained by constant updates.

STANDARD FEATURES AND NEW ADD-ON MODULES

One part of our releases consists of updated core functionality and technology, to make the most of your Astro WMS® as a standard installation. But we also offer a number of new add-on modules in every release.

Our library of add-on modules includes solutions for industry-specific needs, automation, value adding services, integration with other systems, and much more. Depending on what our customers ask for, and how technology changes we constantly develop new modules to add to our library of add-ons.

In other words, new releases twice a year makes sure you are always up to date with improved standard functionality and new add-on modules based on the latest technology. Astro WMS® is a system that will change when you change. And a system where the choice is yours.
