The Catalyst Warehouse Management System (WMS) is a client/server system with a true thin-client, Web-deployed user interface designed to increase productivity, inventory, accuracy, and customer service within the warehouse and distribution center. The system provides new insights into managing your personnel, space, and equipment, thus enabling you to control and monitor every operation within your warehouse. As a full-functioning WMS solution, the system supports receiving, putaway, inventory management, picking, and loading all in real time, utilizing the latest barcode functionality. Catalyst provides advanced functionality such as transaction history analysis, advanced wave planning and order selection, yard management, task interleaving, cycle counting, opportunistic cross-docking, and value-added processing, including kiting and QA processes.

The integration between the products is achieved through a series of Application Program Interfaces (APIs), which enables rapid data access between the applications leveraging a single point of data maintenance. The integration allows Oracle Applications and Catalyst Warehouse Management System to seamlessly provide information critical to warehouse management system customers. This integration supports interfaces between Oracle Supply Chain, Oracle Financials, and Oracle Manufacturing.
