FOLSOM, Calif., Dec. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- International Business Systems (IBS), a leading global integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) and warehouse management system (WMS) provider to the supply chain industry, announced today that American Hotel Register Company has successfully deployed IBS Dynaman WMS at its Illinois-based distribution center. Upcoming software implementations are planned for its Florida and California locations.

The solution fully automates American Hotel's dispatching process and provides open integration with other technologies, such as Lucas Systems voice picking equipment to improve travel times and productivity in its warehouse activities.

"The IBS Dynaman solution was game-changing for us," said Kevin Baker, American Hotel Register Company's Director of Distribution. "It delivered everything we had hoped for in a WMS and more."

With its "gamified," visual, point-and-click functionality, IBS Dynaman effectively delivers real-time reporting and alerts on order fulfillment and streamlines American Hotel's receiving process. The system's rule-based automation capabilities have eliminated manual sortation in the company's warehouse, creating multiple, tailored options to proactively release orders by type.

After implementing the solution, American Hotel reported an average savings of four to five hours per day in management time, or up to nine hours per day during peak volume periods.

"We are extremely pleased to partner with American Hotel Register Company on its recent WMS upgrade project," said Steven Hargreaves, IBS CEO. "Our IBS Dynaman platform, along with the ongoing dedication of our service and support team, will give American Hotel Register Company a forward-looking solution on which to grow its business for many years to come."
