KeyChain WCS: Intelligent, Configurable Control for Distribution Centers

Kuecker Logistics Group is proud to offer KeyChain, a proprietary warehouse control system (WCS) that's designed to maximize your distribution center's (DC) efficiency and productivity. The WCS is the communications bridge between the warehouse management system (WMS) and the autmated warehouse material handling devices such as picking modules and conveyors. 

KeyChain's Benefits

  • KeyChain is 100 percent configurable, allowing you to use only the modules your facility needs.
  • It features multi-level user security so your valuable data doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.
  • An HMI display that depicts detailed equipment status, allowing you to pinpoint and correct problems before they result in costly delays or downtime.
  • An excellent system response time, which means that your orders get out the door faster.
  • Extensive logging of historical data: you need to know about the past to plan for the future.
  • Fully customized Microsoft SQL server reports, which means that you can see and analyze only the data that applies to your DC and your team.

With KeyChain, your warehouse can become a powerhouse of efficiency and productivity.

With the KeyChain WCS, you will be able to keep your team on task and minimize downtime with these features:


  • Provides an interface to an upper-level WMS where it exchanges the data required to manage the distribution center’s daily operations.
  • Provides real-time directives to material handling equipment controllers and operators that are required to complete the product routing and order fulfillment requirements.
  • Allows cartons to be dynamically assigned to divert locations based on routing/order information received from the host or configured sortation algorithms.
  • Allows operations personnel to maintain the equipment in peak performance through the collection of statistical data on the system’s operational performance.
  • Adds the benefits of accessing a graphical user interface on operational screens that functions to make control and management of the DC a simple process.
  • tasks to the various material handling subsystems as a means of balancing system activities in order to complete the required workload.
