The Number 1 Advantage of ChainDrive Warehouse Management
Whether you are a retailer looking at adding a warehousing component to your operation or a warehouse business looking at optimizing your system, the number 1 advantage of using ChainDrive’s Warehouse Management software remains the same: you know where all your inventory is in real time.
Real-Time Inventory Status
A warehouse cannot be efficient if the management team only gets updates at the end of the day. If there are multiple channels, this becomes imperative because an online store has to reflect what is available to sell every time a customer looks at what is being offered. Being able to see exactly what is in the inventory at all times increases productivity because accuracy enables efficiency.
For example, a shoe retailer can keep a supply of all possible sizes and styles in duplicate locations, just so the shopper at that location can find what they want. The webstore, likewise, could have duplicate inventory. All this replication ensures every shopper finds what they want, but it comes at a high cost in inventory stockpiling and warehouse headaches.
ChainDrive Warehouse Management integrates with all other channels so the retail inventory and the warehouse inventory are equally transparent. An online order can be filled from a warehouse or off the shelf in a store and automatically updated inventory status reflects the sale without compromising availability to other channels. Products that are Open-to-Sell are identifiable to be sold and shipped.
The system perpetually tracks orders and goods as they are received, picked, packed, shipped, on-hold, in quarantine or completed. This tracking is accurate and comprehensive, so an individual item can be searched for at the SKU level if necessary. As warehouses become more flexible in what they do, the management of the inventory they receive, store, and ship must be flexible and seamless. ChainDrive provides the tools to manage the warehouse operations of today and can keep up with the changes in the future.
In addition to being able to see exactly what is on hand in real time, ChainDrive Warehouse Management provides productivity monitoring, supply chain management, multiple shipping methods, wireless hand-held operations, and much more. The superior support and customization capabilities of this integrated management software solution provide the advantage of optimal functionality in real time, too.
