Elevating Fabric's Robotic Capabilities: LEA ReplyTM
Fabric will use the LEA Reply™ supply-chain execution platform - developed by Logistics Reply - to integrate with its automation solution and provide a ready-to-use connector to Reply’s leading WMS in the market. This will also allow both Fabric and Reply to quickly develop new features for their customers to improve the performance of the robotics, WES, and WMS with minimal additional integration efforts and no disruption to the customers’ operations.
Especially amid a boom in online shopping and increasing customer expectations for rapid delivery times, this technology satisfies retailers' critical need to revolutionize their fulfillment strategies in order to maintain their competitive edge in the market.
LEA Reply™ can be used to rapidly develop and build new end-to-end supply chain solutions for any business requirement. By augmenting Fabric’s MFC® automation platform, the combined solution empowers retailers to maximize customer satisfaction, making MFC®s more local, flexible and automated to allow for faster deliveries and more efficient operations.
