WDS Mobile Engine – Handheld WMS

A Versatile Handheld Inventory Management System


At Wireless Data Systems, Inc., we recognize the transformational role of mobile technology in shaping warehouse solutions. That’s why we’ve revisited our roots and revamped our iconic mobile engine. Our WMS Mobile Engine is the answer to your handheld inventory management system needs, marrying historical innovation with modern-day technology for seamless warehouse mobile solutions. Our innovative handheld WMS isn’t just an upgrade—it’s a reinvention! WDS is dedicated to keeping pace with the rapid advancements in mobile computing.


Unveiling the New Era of WMS Mobile


From its inception in 1991, the mobile engine was ahead of its time, being tailored to specific handheld hardware vendors. Its evolution from FoxPro to the .NET browser-based system in the late ’90s made it a robust solution for its era. Yet, with the technological shift towards smartphone-style devices in recent years, we knew it was time to innovate. And innovate, we did.

In 2023, we unveiled a complete redesign of the mobile engine, ensuring its compatibility and efficiency with modern mobile devices. Our WMS Mobile Engine isn’t just another software update; it’s a paradigm shift, demonstrating how past innovations can be harmoniously blended with futuristic technology to serve the ever-evolving needs of the warehouse industry.
