The Current Issue of Wholesale and Distribution Magazine Looks at WarehouseOS

The current issue of Wholesale & Distribution International magazine profiled Hoj Engineering based in Salt Lake City, UT. Jim Harris, author of the article, explained that the idea for WarehouseOS (WOS), a software platform that helps ecommerce business best manage their warehouse operations, came from Hoj Engineering’s consulting team in response to the concerns of several of the company’s customers.

Tim Hoj, CEO of Hoj Engineering, noted, “Our consulting team is our first level of contact with our customers. After our consulting team helps clients find a way to improve their processes, our sales group will put packages together. We’re proud to see our customers succeed by employing our tools to lower their costs and gain efficiencies that help them ship more products.”

WarehouseOS enables small- to medium-sized warehouses to process many small orders. The platform, which is available through Apple’s iTunes store and runs on iPads, operates both in a cloud environment or as a resident server environment. WOS integrates with enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems to distribute customer orders directly to warehouses. Instead of using radio frequency (RF) scanner guns to capture barcode information, the WOS system uses inexpensive Bluetooth scanner devices that are paired to an iPad. After an item is scanned, information about where the item is located in the warehouse is displayed.

Wholesale & Distribution International is the must-read trade publication for distribution leaders that want to stay informed of the latest trends and challenges in this dynamic marketplace.

About WarehouseOS

WarehouseOS (, a new tablet-based Warehouse Operations System brings warehouses into the future today. Warehouse management systems have been around for a long time with too many companies still using the RF gun to conduct inventory management, scan in new items, and pick orders. The RF gun solutions typically cost double what modern solutions offer. WarehouseOS and associated apps have been developed to make everything about the warehouse easier and better. Apps allow small or large companies to receive products, manage inventory, perform cycle counting, conduct single picks or do batch picking, verify items picked and pack them into boxes.

A team of experts in material handling equipment and solutions developed WarehouseOS to maximize the throughput of warehousing and distributing facilities. From small eCommerce, to high volume SKU facilities, from omni-channel companies to FMCG (fast moving consumer goods), WarehouseOS is equipped to handle everything. From small startups with simple needs to complex, large distribution centers, WarehouseOS is the tablet solution which enables manufacturers and distribution centers to be a step ahead of the competition.
