Apport WMS solution
The product’s journey
When the product arrives at the warehouse, warehouse employees usually receives the product by using handheld terminals. Apport WMS is designed to make this process as simple as possible.
Apport WMS (Warehouse Management System) always finds the optimal location for a given item from the rules you have set up.
Apport’s unique WMS – warehouse management system helps optimize refills and relocations to meet the company’s wishes and support the business needs at all times.
The possibilities for order picking are many and are always based on the needs of the business. Counts, among other things: Picking single orders and Batch picking orders that require a post processing.
Pack and ship
After completion of picking, orders may need to be invented and consolidated before shipment, and packing and freight documents must be printed and the orders read.
Apport WMS supports both manual, peridocic and continual stockttaking, and generally all countings can be done, while the warehouse is in full function. In doing so, you avoid the resource demanding, yearly stocktaking. Ongoing stocktaking can be configured as such:
- Counts that get activated as a result of a certain amount in a location
- Counts that follow a predetermined cycle, depending on how often you want the item counted. The stocktakings can be varied in accordance to A-, B- and C-items, and also offer the possibility to do manual or periodic stocktakings, where select parts of the warehouse are accounted for.
- Manual countings can be done either as traditional “item on location”-counts or location counts.
Business Intelligence, surveillance and reporting
Apport WMS makes it possible to collect data and use these data to improve and make your decision making more proactive.
Apport WMS gives you both the ability to have an advanced Business Intelligence solution – showing you data in real-time and an overview of relevant KPIs – and a more traditional reporting.
