Cirrus Logistics Launches CLASS in French and German
April 13, 2017
Cirrus Logistics today announced the launch of its award-winning CLASS warehouse modelling and simulation tool in French and German. This follows a completely new user interface, new version release and availability in Mandarin earlier in 2016 as well as expanding the team with a dedicated French associate based in the region.
CLASS is the tool of choice for warehouses wanting to identify cost-efficiencies and as a test platform for introducing operational innovation. It is used for new builds, to test designs before the building process begins, and for the operational improvement of an existing site. By enabling businesses to test ‘what-if’ scenarios in a safe computer environment before any tangible investment is made, CLASS enables businesses to future-proof their operations, investment and create best-practices within their own organisation.
“We’ve worked hard on continually developing CLASS to ensure it uses the latest technology and warehousing methods available,” remarked Simon Shore, managing director at Cirrus Logistics. “As it is the only tool designed specifically for a warehouse environment, it really is the preferred solution within the industry. We had a lot of interest from our customers for CLASS in different languages, our growth into France, Germany and APAC echoed this. Coupled with our own European offices, developers and partner support in APAC, we’re now delighted to offer CLASS in a verity of languages.”
The company is also expanding its team of warehouse specialists with a dedicated professional within France who will be appointed later this year, adding to its local certified partners operating in Germany and China.
“CLASS is truly a global brand, used by small and multi-national businesses,” Shore continued. “We’re dedicated to expanding and supporting our customers’ needs. The new position within France as well as the selective appointment of in-region certified partners, means we can offer local support on a global scale.”
CLASS helps users create exciting, interactive visuals in the minimum amount of time, while ensuring designs are highly accurate and realistic. Version 14 builds on CLASS’ visualisation capability with compelling features such as the new Sketch-Up model import function as well as adaptive light and shadow for more realistic high-definition 3D designs and easier to use 3D navigation. The result is a highly professional HD movie of the virtual warehouse showing automation and the manual processing of orders.
“We’re always looking at how we can further enhance and improve CLASS. By listening to our customers’ needs, we have developed a compelling offering and now with versions in French, German and Mandarin our users can work even more easily using their own language,” stated Carol Chapman, CLASS Product Manager at Cirrus Logistics.
