HighJump announced in a statement this week that through its digital solutions; HighJump Now, HighJump Warehouse Control System, HighJump CLASS and HighJump Voice, it will enable retail organisations greater purchasing convenience, delivery speed, choice and adaptability.

Using digital technologies, companies can improve their ability to solve problems, reduce costs, enhance customer experiences, and drive quality improvements and increased operational speed.
