Warehouse Management Systems and hardware solutions that support organisations to control and administer warehouse operations from the time goods enter a warehouse until they leave the warehouse.
Services include: Software, Barcode Scanners, Printers & Mobile Workstations.
Warehouse Management Systems
Warehouse management systems come in a variety of types and implementation methods, and the type typically depends on the size and nature of the organisation.
With 30 plus years of enterprise mobility expertise, Datanet assist our clients to optimise and select the right components to maximise their return on investment and streamline their warehouse management.
Datanet can assist with larger stand-alone systems for full Warehouse Management or smaller modules to simplify and ease speciﬁ c pain points within the organisation.
Warehouse management systems can vary widely in complexity. Some small organisations may use a simple series of hard copy documents or spreadsheet ﬁ les and can be assisted by the implementation of barcoding and mobile workstations to streamline workﬂ ow, whereas larger businesses will require more complex WMS Systems.
Warehouse Management Systems
Implementing a WMS can help an organisation reduce labor costs, improve inventory accuracy, improve ﬂ exibility and responsiveness, decrease errors in picking and shipping goods, and improve customer service.
Modern warehouse management systems operate with real-time data, allowing the organisation to manage the most current information on activities like orders, shipments, receipts and any movement of goods.
Features of Warehouse Management Systems
Many features are common to WMS products, including the following:
- Warehouse design: which enables organisations to customize workﬂ ow and picking logic to make sure that the warehouse is designed for optimized inventory allocation. The WMS establishes bin slotting that maximises storage space and accounts for variances in seasonal inventory.
- Inventory tracking: which enables the use of advanced tracking systems, including radio frequency identiﬁcation (RFID), automatic identiﬁcation and data capture (AIDC) and barcode scanners to make sure that goods can be found easily when they need to move.
- Pick-to-voice technology: to help warehouse workers locate goods.
- Picking and packing goods: including zone picking, wave picking and batch picking. Warehouse workers can also use lot zoning and task interleaving functions to guide the pick-and-pack tasks in the most eﬃcient way.
- Mobile Workstation on Wheels: git pos dolorpost, quam, si consedit voluptatur sundi beaquiam consed modis im re commodi ommostiunt omniaepero dolorat quostem aborisim.
- Labor management: which helps warehouse managers monitor workers’ performance by using key performance indicators (KPls) that indicate workers who perform above or below standards.
- Reporting: which helps managers analye the performance of warehouse operations and ﬁ nd areas to improve.
WMS and loT
Connected devices and sensors in products and materials help organisations to ensure they can produce and ship the right quantity of goods at the right price to the right place at the right time. All of these features fall under the Internet of Things (loT).
Such loT data can integrate into a WMS to help manage routing of the products from the pick-up point to the end point. This integration enables organisations to develop pull-based supply chains, rather than push-based supply chains. Pull-based supply chains are driven by customer demand, which allows the organisation more ﬂ exibility and responsiveness, while a push-based supply chain is driven by long-term projections of customer demand.
