MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- HighJump Software, a global provider of supply chain management software, announced that Muscle & Strength, one of the most popular fitness websites and online nutrition retailers in the U.S., has chosen HighJump™ Warehouse Advantage warehouse management system (WMS) in the cloud. Muscle & Strength sought a cloud-based solution that was powerful enough to manage tens of thousands of orders per day, yet flexible enough to meet to specific operations requirements.

With the HighJump WMS in the cloud, Muscle & Strength will target three key areas to enhance: increased picking accuracy, tracking staff productivity data to ensure more efficient use of labor resources, and inventory visibility in order to locate a product at any stage in the receiving or fulfillment process. Ultimately, improvements in all of these areas will allow Muscle & Strength to plan more accurately and operate more efficiently.

"We needed a cloud-based WMS that was flexible enough to serve our unique company needs but powerful enough to handle our large order volumes," said Damien Mase, CEO, Muscle & Strength. "The HighJump WMS will meet these requirements and help turn our supply chain into a competitive advantage for us."

"The architecture of our cloud-based WMS is the same as our installed version, giving Muscle & Strength the power and flexibility of an on-premise WMS," said Gary Nemmers, senior vice president and general manager, supply chain execution group, HighJump Software. "The company will have the solutions it needs to improve its business now, with the ability to leverage additional capabilities in the future as needed."
