Managing Warehouse Resources
Every warehouse manager has direct responsibility for inventory, people, space and equipment. All three of Robocom’s Warehouse Management Systems are designed to help you optimize the use of those resources and minimize the cost. Here’s how Robocom can help:
Inventory – The functions of our WMS software solutions provide near perfect inventory management control with the use of mobile wireless terminals and bar code scanners. Each offers robust functionality aimed at specific types of warehouse operations and is fully configurable, allowing the use of specific functions and processes that meet the demanding needs of Supply Chain managers. Tightly controlled inventory means you can reduce inventory levels while providing very high order fill rates, eliminate costly physical inventory counts, and avoid wasted labor caused by inaccurate inventory records.
People – Each WMS works without paper, allowing you to direct the work in the warehouse via wireless terminals. Paperless operations combined with inventory accuracy boosts productivity in the warehouse by 10% to 15%! Add in our Labor Management system and boost productivity even higher.
Space – Any one of Robocom’s WMS software solutions will manage the physical locations in your warehouse, using parameters and rules that you configure and control, resulting in very high space utilization. Reduce your inventory and improve the efficient use of your space.
Equipment – Improved productivity means less wear and tear on your equipment. Each WMS plans efficient paths for work and reduces the time spent and miles driven.
Our Warehouse Management Systems deliver near 100% inventory accuracy, not just in terms of the quantity on hand for each item in the warehouse, but also the quantity on hand of each item in each location for each lot or pallet. High inventory accuracy combined with paperless order picking means very high pick accuracy. Can you imagine how much money such high accuracy will save your operation?
Supply Chain visibility is growing in importance. Robocom clients maintain clear views of activity and business information in their warehouse operations. Each WMS provides on-screen visibility to a variety of key performance indicators and information, in a form that can easily be shared with sales, accounting, planning and management.
