WAREHOUSE MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE

REDUCE SUPPLY COST

Lower your supply chain costs by accurately forecasting quantities required, optimising your inventory and reducing the cost of manual administration, data errors and shipping costs.

MAXIMISE EFFICIENCIES

By automating repetitive and predictable processes along the supply chain you can reduce human error, unintended delivery lags and create an intelligent, efficient supply chain.

COMPLETE OVERSIGHT

For complete supply chain transparency, live tracking of all your stock levels and movement lets you know at a glance where every order is in real-time, while helping you share this information with suppliers, partners and customers.

Create an intelligent warehouse with Sdos Warehouse Management System. Flexible three-dimensional warehouse layouts allow you to define the layout of your warehouse exactly, and where items are stored. To create faster picking, managers can specify optimal picking paths, picking methodologies, quantities, and order prioritisation. Intelligent top-up routines mean sales orders are automatically released when replenishments are required.

Objectives:      

  • Configuration of inventory in a Multi Store Configuration for inventory holding.

 

  • Multiple Contracting options per client for the storage of goods for third parties and leading to a billing mechanism for each separate inventory lot/receipt per client.

 

  • Multi-modal accepting of goods (receipts) from client’s inbound deliveries.
  • Holding of inventory for third party clients within the managed warehouse internal store room configuration.

 

  • Allowing for on-line third-party client visibility of goods and balances while in hand at the WMS operation.

 

Inventory Receipt – Incoming Goods:

  • The system allows user to input data of inbound cargo, manually (via an input screen), or through an Excel sheet or CSV file import provided by the client.

 

  • Once data is included a Good Received Notes (GRN) is issued and delivery documentation is produced. There are systems to control the order with which cargo is collected for the client.

 

  • This system also requires the user to input the data for the individual pieces of inbound cargo. Each item of cargo is given a unique identifier.
  • The system caters for expiry and batch management for perishable goods.

 

  • For better management and operational flexibility, WMS allows the user to divide cargo into more item details. By way of example, a receipt created with an item having 95 boxes can be broken down into 10 different pallets of 10 boxes each, the system will return 9 full pallets with 10 boxes and 1 pallet with the remaining 5 boxes.

 

  • Once data is completely input, the user may issue the appropriate Good Received Notes (GRN) for the inbound delivery. Warehouse coordinators use this document to tally the cargo vs. the actual items received and documents the reported variances.

 

  • All cargo can also carry the supplier name or supplier ref code, as well as having a particular product code.

 

Inventory Holding:

As part of the stock holding process, the WMS user may:

  • Transfer inventory within warehouses and pre-coded shelving/locations.
  • Issue Stock Location reports (detailing the positions within the warehouses of each individual item by location) for the full inventory or by selected client.

 

  • Issue Stock Position reports (detailing the quantities in stock of each individual item) from the full inventory or by selected client.

 

  • Issue Stock in Hand reports (detailing the amount, location and client) of items in the warehouse.

 

  • Warehouse utilization report (detailing the capacity used of each warehouse and shelf). This option will allow users to optimize and maximize the utilization of the warehouse and reduce holding costs, detailing where cargo can be located in order to use less space in the warehouse.

 

Inventory Issue:

Once a client decides to issue cargo from the system, the user can:

  • Manually or electronically (via Excel sheet) create pick lists detailing item, quantity and location of cargo to be extracted from the warehouse.

 

  • Attach serial numbers of individual items being issued (where applicable)

 

General Items in System:

  • The system has a number of other features that are imperative for the use of the WMS system.

 

  • Access and Credentials: To use the WMS system, each user has to be provided with the appropriate credentials through a separate username and password, together with being given a particular role within the system. These credentials/roles allow/limit users to use different areas of the application.

 

A user with administrative rights can also:

  • Manage a client list, detailing the client information for all the clients participating in the system.

 

  • Manage cargo type list and categories that will be available at Receipt stage to group inventory into set categories.

 

  • Manage/map warehouse list, together with individual warehouse aisles and shelves (this will be used when allocating the location to the individual items input into the system)
