BeerWare Warehouse Management System
Our Warehouse Management System integrates inventory control, labor management, labor scheduling, order selection, billing management, receiving, and support.
Designed as an integrated or standalone solution, our Warehouse Management System (WMS) maximizes productivity and increases cost savings and throughput by utilizing task optimization at every step of the warehousing process. This Warehouse Management System not only includes the warehouse, but also the yard and production facilities.
Labor Management Warehouse Systems
While labor is one of the most significant costs of warehouse operations, it is also the most manageable with an inclusive Warehouse Management System. KPI’s Labor Management enables you to either increase productivity using the workforce you have or find a new solution for cutting your costs. Employee turnover is significantly reduced with this Warehouse Management System because workers receive more feedback and are managed in a way that is more conducive to their needs and rewards them for a job well done.
Labor Management works by storing your database of standards for every key task. For each associate, the actual times for task completion are monitored in real-time and compared to the standards.
How would you like to leverage your Warehouse Management System with highly intelligent Labor Scheduling Software? We are talking software that will compute the number of employees you need in different areas at different times.
Labor Scheduling software is highly intelligent and can manage hundreds (or more) of employees among several different shifts in several different areas within the warehouse. This level of forecasting and management will make times of increased demand flow smoother.
Additional system control is provided through the Order Selection feature of KPI’s Order selection, sometimes referred to as Order Dashboard, which prepares plans for batch picking or wave picking. It permits selection based on status, lot, or order number.
It also allows allocation of products to orders and distinguishes between on-hand inventory and inventory assigned to orders. When inventory is not available, move reports and/or replenishment orders are automatically created.
Look at any business in any industry and you will see an element of Quality Control incorporated into their business standards. There are some industries, like the Food Industry, where even more checks, tests, and guidelines must be followed, but every company knows the importance of maintaining a certain level of product and order distribution standards.
Quality Control ensures products are performed in accordance with management directives by SKU, date, time, vendor, etc. This will prevent products from being released if there is a problem. In addition, it provides backtracking if a problem is detected to determine where the problem occurred.
One of the features most taken advantage of by customers is the ability to link quality control to in-line scales. Our Warehouse Control System will use the weight information to determine whether the box/tote is carrying the correct amount of product by comparing the actual weight with what its average weight should be. Essentially, we’re talking about In-line Quality Control.
The Receiving feature of our Warehouse Control System integrates with purchase order documentation and ASN (advance shipping notification). This feature will issue warning notifications to the purchasing department with regard to discrepancies.
This feature improves the communication between departments within the warehouse as well as the purchasing department and consumers if there is a problem with their order. We’re talking real-time results and a real-time ability to contact your customer to solve the problem.
With the Receiving feature in place, you will know what truck is coming when. You will see in other areas of our WCS that this information can then be used to aid in labor scheduling and yard management.
Billing Management Warehouse Systems
You’re now in control of every other aspect of your warehouse, so Billing Management would be the next logical step to a fully organized and well-managed system. With features that include Computer Management groups, User Types, and Email Groups, members of any department within your warehouse can be notified of any issues or completions at any time.
Our Billing Management solution will integrate and work with our WCS and other programs to ensure that customers are invoiced in a timely fashion and no profit is left unbilled. Your customers will be happier to receive timely and detailed invoices and your bottom line will be happier when payments roll in.
