Most people, when thinking of a Supply Chain Execution system, automatically think: BIG. With Ascent Software Essentials that’s no longer the case. What’s more compelling though, is that Ascent Software Essentials is based on the same software platform as its larger brethren – enabling small operations to take advantage of decades of software development and the huge investment in Ascent Software Essentials – but targeted to a smaller operation.

If you have a single distribution associate working in your distribution center or manufacturing storage environment, you can justify the deployment of Warehouse Librarian Essentials.
When it comes to implementing a more complex environment (such as support for batch and wave picking), or when you need more users, you can upgrade – in place – to Warehouse Librarian from the Essentials product. All it takes is for Ascent Warehouse Logisitcs to issue a new license key, along with some planning and consultation if you are going to undertake new complex operations in your distribution environment, and you are ready to expand with the highest performance Supply Chain Execution system in the market.

Even if you have a small operation, you’ve made some big investments to have a distribution or manufacturing business. It only takes a little more to provide you with the same capability and performance that companies like Petco enjoy. Companies like Animal Supply, Flexi, Norco, Parkseed, KC Metro, and Chefworks already have. You can too.
