The company said, “To HighJump, the results exemplify the company’s dedication and ability to empower businesses worldwide with the connected and automated supply chain of the future.”
Since HighJump became part of Körber Logistics Systems in 2017, it has grown considerably.

Over the past year, HighJump has added more than 100 WMS customers, bringing its total to an estimated 1,200 WMS customers in almost 80 countries.

In the Gartner 2019 Magic Quadrant for WMS, one of HighJump’s strengths is detailed: “HighJump has a strong technology vision and is Microsoft-centric, taking advantage of contemporary Microsoft technologies. It continues to innovate as evidence by its HighJump Essentials – supply chain applications offering even further functionality and insights into operations and resources.”
It goes on to say, “HighJump Warehouse Advantage’s technical architecture allows customer-specific changes to be made at the business-logic level with no changes made to the underlying source code, which protects the customer’s upgrade path. More than half of customer references cited this as one of their top three reasons for choosing HighJump. They continued to say this is the most intrinsically customizable WMS product, and they cited this as the primary reason they selected the vendor.”
