Each month, SCDigest features a "Cool New Product," accompanied by a short video review. Just two rules - it has to be new, and it has to be cool.
This Month: HighJump Software's App Station portal is Supply Chain Digest's Cool New Product of the Month for March, 2011. It's a bold strategy that could have a big impact on how supply chain software is delivered.
What makes HighJump's App Station really cool?
As SCDigest editor Dan Gilmore describes in the video nearby, the App Station borrows on the concept of the thousands of "apps"
available for download on smart phones, but for enhancements to functionality for Warehouse Management (WMS) and other supply chain execution software applications.
The potential benefits are many: no more clogging up the core applications with niche capabilties only used by a few companies; faster delivery of capabilities to users; users can get new functionality without a full system upgrade; a potential "open source" type community where users contribute apps themselves.
It is a very cool concept.
