The comprehensive system for warehouse management (WMS) controls warehouse processes from the moment the goods are received (logistic unit, raw material, product), during the whole time the goods are stored in a warehouse, up to the moment they are issued.
Our WMS solutions are characterized by flexibility – they can be adapted to the needs of Customer, and can work with mobile computers operating based on automatic identification technologies, such as bar codes or RFiD. The use of this technology, as an integral part of WMS systems, enables real-time data registration and processing and performance of warehouse operations at any location.
Basic tasks performed by warehouse systems are typical logistic operations, such as receipt, issuance, or stocktaking. Apart from these functions, there are processes in certain branches that would be difficult to carry out effectively without warehouse system.
One of the advantages of our solution is its flexibility and scalability. It can be adapted to the requirements of any company, regardless of branch, size or type of processes performed:
Our solutions have built-in, advanced reporting mechanisms, and enable effective storage and archiving of information about all tasks performed linked with specific logistic units. The data provided enables tracing the warehouse inventory in real time, and makes it easier for the managers to take decisions. Extended reports also enable tracing the origin of products in the entire production and logistic process.
WMS systems also offer advanced optimization methods, relating to both the use of warehouse space (optimization of storage of goods) and the performance of processes. An example of such support is optimization of routes during preparing deliveries, ABC analysis improving flows in a warehouse, controlling the flow of products according to the principle FIFO, LIFO or FEFO (First Expired First Out).
The WMS system can be used independently to manage warehouse processes, however in order to fully use its capabilities it must work with external systems used in an enterprise, e.g.:
This combination gives a user a comprehensive IT solution for enterprise management. The WMS systems implemented by our company are much more flexible and customizable than similar logistic modules that are part of ERP systems. As opposed to them, they are focused more on real-time management of the flow of materials than on transaction processes – the main functionality of ERP systems. The possibility of changing and developing the system along with the development of a company guarantees continuity of operation and optimization of costs of investing into IT.
