scm SUMMARY OF STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES
HighJump’s Software strengths are in WMS and TMS. Their WMS product is a best in class level product. With the exception of fleet management, the TMS product supports the critical transportation requirements of most organizations. Both WMS and TMS should be considered for any SCM initiative.

HighJump is exclusively an SCM execution system vendor. If a fully integrated SCM solution is high on the requirements, HighJump will be at a disadvantage, when competing against vendors who have supply chain management software planning features. HighJump’s software architecture does not support the robust features and functionality of several other software vendor solutions, such as application integration or business process flows.
