6 Solutions For Your Warehouse
Warehouse managers have to manage product location, monitor productivity, manage the supply chain, oversee multiple shipping methods, monitor inventory, and make sure their team is equipped to do each job effectively. ChainDrive Warehouse Management software provides the solution in each of these categories.
1. Product Location Management
Efficient warehouse management means every product can be located at all times. A well-planned warehouse doesn’t waste space but it also doesn’t cram everything into bins and shelves that are difficult to access. Layout management, bin creation, location assignment, and much more are standard equipment in this component. Add pivot table graphical representations of your layout and see exactly where stuff is.
2. Productivity Monitoring
ChainDrive utilizes a centralized database that enables authorized access to the information managers need to know. Where an item is, who needs to do work tasks and which of those tasks are priorities, tracking process status, or evaluating productivity are simplified because the data is collected in real-time and available. Analysis of past processes compared to a new method is easily done. Monitor effectively because the information is accurate and up-to-date.
3. Supply Chain Management
Keep an eye on what is happening in the supply chain so alternatives can be explored when weather or other outside factors affect shipment. Because all the information is immediately available, analysis and response can be made in time to keep things moving seamlessly. There is no substitute for accurate data in real time when it comes to knowing what is going on in the enterprise.
4. Multiple Shipping Methods
How many ways do you ship? How many ways will you need to ship in the future? Cross-dock processing, wave based distribution, break-pack capability, or whatever you need to do can be done because ChainDrive offers custom development. If it isn’t in the standard software, ask how it can be built into yours. Today’s warehouse needs to be flexible for the future or it will lose profits and sustainability.
5. Inventory Monitoring
Perpetually track goods to be received, picked, packed, shipped, on hold, in quarantine, or completed as detailed as SKU level. Do it in real time for the type of status checks that you need. See where all inventory is right now. See where it has been. Determine where it is going and when it will get there. Monitor inventory the way you need to so the warehouse works the way it should.
6. Wireless Hand-held Operations
Equip workers to do their job with mobile devices that let them pick, pack, and ship efficiently. The ChainDrive Warehouse Management software component wirelessly connects your team to do their best.
