Supporting your growing supply chain is in your DNA

Delivering the warehouse management system to help you is in ours

A legacy of excellence. A future of innovation.

With a corporate history spanning over 50 years, Worldwide Chain Stores (WCS) draws on decades of experience and expertise to develop world-leading warehouse management systems that streamline your supply chain operations and drive your businesses forward.

It’s a journey characterised by technological innovation and defined by a consistent focus on delivering value to our customers so they can do the same for theirs.

One of the secrets of our longevity in such a highly competitive industry is a WMS that has not only stood the test of time but continually evolves to embrace the modern challenges of ever-changing business models and increasing customer demands.

Our functionally rich, scalable and future-proof technology platform works tirelessly to enhance the customer experience in today’s complex omnichannel and hybrid business environments.

How ?

By offering state-of-the-art solutions for warehouse management, asset management, order management, and more.

A powerful partnership. A blueprint for growth.

In 2019, WCS became a part of the Volaris Group, a global conglomerate specialising in the acquisition and growth of vertical market software companies. Since then, they’ve continually demonstrated their commitment to supporting us in our quest for innovation while allowing us to retain our corporate identity and culture.

Under their expert guidance, we’ve been able to invest further and faster, strengthening our solutions portfolio and growing our platform while also exploring new geographies and markets. We also have unprecedented access to a wealth of resources, best practices, and industry knowledge.

All of which means we can offer our clients a level of service and a variety of solutions we would not have been able to before.

A universal solution. A unique approach.

We are privileged to partner with some of the world’s leading businesses, offering warehouse management solutions that improve their efficiency and deliver measurable business benefits.

Our clients span a wide range of industries, including retail, wholesale, food service, third-party logistics, and more. We’re proud to say that some of our customers have been with us for over 40 years – a testament, we believe, not only to the quality of our products, but to our commitment to always putting our clients at the centre of our business.

To us, business is about so much more than making a sale, and our relationships with our customers run so much deeper than a series of simple transactional exchanges. We’re proud of the bonds we’ve built with our clients over the years, and we continue to deliver on our promise of excellent products backed up with excellent service.

A talented team. A collaborative approach.

Our most valuable asset is our dedicated team of highly skilled professionals. Their in-depth knowledge of both software and the supply chain industry means we can deliver superior solutions tailored to our customers’ unique needs.

We believe in a collaborative approach that fosters innovation and continuous improvement, and it’s part of the reason why we’ve remained at the forefront of the industry for so many years.

At WCS, we are so much more than a software provider. We are a talented team committed to empowering our clients with the tools and insights they need to revolutionise their supply chain execution.

"When I look back over how we have developed in the last 18 years with WCS, those developments would not have been possible without the WCS platform"
