Mantis: Warehouse Management Simplified

Efficient warehouse operations can be considered the lifeline of any business organization, as it realizes the core purpose of serving customers and securing increasing profit margins. On the other hand, numerous factors can affect smooth warehouse operations such as stock excess, space management, redundant processes, and so on. Set against this backdrop is Mantis, a leading logistics software and solution vendor, established in 1996. The company offers solutions to the problems that affect warehouse operations with its Logistics Vision Suite (LVS), a highly scalable self-serve logistics platform. Having its headquarters in Athens, Greece, the company is present in about 30 countries in Europe, North America, Middle East, and Asia.

Logistics Vision Suite, with its unique and outstanding adaptability and flexibility, is a significant leap in the field of Warehouse Management System (WMS). Yiannis Panagiotopoulos, the president and CEO of Mantis, says, “Logistics Vision software suite, Mantis’ flagship software suite, is the only WMS / logistics information system in the world that can be easily adapted for large enterprises with sophisticated and high-performance needs. Mantis makes this claim, having successfully outperformed some of the best competitive systems on the market.” LVS supports even the enterprises with complex warehouse operations to easily configure, deploy, and support WMS all by themselves. The platform’s user-friendly interface resolves the high demands of large enterprises with ease and helps to achieve a speedy return on interest with a low total cost of ownership.

LVS is an integrated state of supply chain execution software systems that creates the most appropriate logistics solution for any enterprise. The inbuilt software systems of LVS allow the clients to increase their overall profitability by helping them perform fast with smooth implementations.

The combination of software systems and modules includes warehouse vision, warehouse value, warehouse automation, dock and gate management, warehouse control, logistics billing, traceability, logistics customer service, and adaptability. In which, warehouse vision, the heart of LVS, manages the activities of single and multi-site, public and private distribution centres to improve the productivity and efficiency of the available resources. Similar other modules help clients streamline their warehouse management operations.

Apart from LVS, Mantis has also developed specialized logistics solutions explicitly designed for specific market sectors. They include distribution management and optimization, warehouse resources, manufacturing execution system, and more. These supply chain management solutions promote efficient logistics catering to the needs of various enterprises belonging to different market sectors and regions.

Having outperformed some of the best WMS in the market, Mantis achieves a rich clientele of more than 400 enterprises representing the major market sectors (3PLs/4PLs, distributors/ wholesalers, retailers, and more) and selling channels (traditional as well as e-commerce). The system has also been successfully integrated with the major ERPs such as SAP, Microsoft, Infor, and more. The company’s software solutions enable its clients to operate and optimize their logistics and warehousing processes. Panagiotopoulos reasons out the company's success as, "Our strategy is to provide the international markets with integrated and comprehensive warehouse management, automation, and optimization solution portfolio."

Mantis, having a worldwide presence with offices in different parts of the world, has extended its roots further to North America through the acquisition of Insight Technologies Group. Recently, the company has also designed and developed a subsystem, Logistics Link Manager, that paces up the interface’s initial setup with the existing IT systems and supports its maintenance in the future. Thus the company continues to broaden its technology base.
