wmcentralwmcentralWMCentral Enterprise Suite is an end-to-end enterprise grade Warehouse Management System that can also integrate with Automated Storage and Retrieval System.

This suite covers all warehousing activities such as receiving, put-away, storage, inventory management, supply, replenishment, kitting, order fulfillment, picking, checking, packing and dispatch, by keeping track of each of the activities leveraging advanced data capture using Barcode labelling / RFID tagging and related technologies.

It provides visibility of inventory through the entire life cycle of goods getting processed through the Warehouse Management System, right from the time it enters the warehouse until it leaves the facility.

WMCentral not only automates warehouse operations, but it also supports in significantly reducing the operating cost by shortening order-fulfillment cycles and maximizing efficiency. It boosts productivity by using Task Interleaving features for high throughput, reduces inventory costs implementing MOQ and automated replenishment to minimize holding excess stock and improves inventory accuracy.

Benefits

  • Full visibility and accuracy of available Inventory
  • Excellent picking and delivery accuracy
  • Highly optimized storage & retrieval and improved operations throughput
  • Improved resource planning, handling & management and minimizing of down-time
  • Allows short interval scheduling, grouping of operations (waves) and release – allowing easy management and coordination of several parallel and sequential activities leading to high efficiency
  • Aids efficient order processing through optimized pick paths
  • Minimizes idle time of equipment and distributes load avoiding bottlenecks
  • Employs intelligent logics while driving the ASRS to optimize put-away and picking operations by arranging a put-away en route next picking operation reducing “deadheading” (empty trips)
  • Allows for 24×7 operations, to achieve maximum throughput/volume with minimum down time in the Warehouse
  • Helps in controlling hundreds of equipment including the conveyors, cranes, Automated Transportation Systems and Automated Sorting Systems automatically
  • Allows for unhindered Warehouse Operation, while allowing to plan for inventory check of the entire stock in Warehouse in a phased manner
