Aptean WMS Proteus Edition- award-winning warehouse management software

Aptean WMS is a best-of-breed warehouse management system. Established in 1987, we have over 30 years' experience managing the complexities of inventory management. We've been part of the Sanderson Group since December 2014. Our software helps control over 5 million square feet of warehouse space across the UK, Ireland, South Africa and Europe.


Powered by Progress

We are software authors, not resellers, with our entire development and support team based in the UK. We use the latest design methodology from Progress, a powerful relational database, resulting in a WMS that is highly adaptive, resilient and scalable. Significant ongoing investment has led to ongoing regular additions to the functionality of the systems and incorporation of the latest technologies.


We focus on working closely with our clients to increase their profitability, through the productivity and the operational improvements our solutions deliver in moving, managing, locating and handling stock. With a pedigree of solution delivery and solving the inventory management related issues of clients for over 30 years, we are uniquely able to assist clients with the complex challenges involved in the supply chain.


Members of UKWA

We are associate members of the UK Warehousing Association (UKWA) and members of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).
