WAREHOUSE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Customers can now create immediate demand that impacts, in real-time, the order fulfillment operations. Supporting multiple distribution channels within the same facility is an increasingly common business model.

LICENSE PLATE MANAGEMENT

A unique identification number (License Plate) gives you a direct association to a unique inventory item which in turn allows high level detail for tracking purposes.

Licence plates can be a physical representation such as a pallet, box, item and be a virtual representation of a group of items. Use license plates to track, transact, or nest inventory.

CONTAINER MANAGEMENT

Containers are used throughout the inbound and outbound processes to consolidate orders. A unique identifier is assigned to each container and as orders are processed, data is captured and linked to that unique number. All information pertaining to the contents and movements of the order are captured and recorded. The results are accurate orders, to one or many orders which allows for accurate order preparation, error-proofing, and order tracking throughout the inbound and outbound processes.

EVENT MANAGEMENT

SOLOCHAIN™ records all the events as they occur and then communicates back to the ERP in real-time. Each event is captured with a date and time stamp, a user name, and event code allowing you to trace back throughout the history of movements of a given item or order.

The comprehensive history of events will allow you to extract efficiency reports, KPI’s, event management dashboards, and more.
