Almost every warehouse faces issues with out-of-control stock management, inability to monitor or manage warehouse processes, inability to forecast stock or even consistently running out of stock on a daily basis, all of which have a direct effect on supply chain processes, business operations, higher costs, loss of goods and ultimately insignificant return on investment.
What is WrxFlo Warehouse Management System?
Because of these issues, WrxFlo has created its very own uniquely designed Warehouse Management System. A Warehouse Management System (WMS) is a software system that provides visibility into a company’s entire inventory and oversees supply chain fulfilment operations from the warehouse to the retail shelf.
The Warehouse Management System (WMS) also assists businesses to maximize labour and space efficiency, as well as equipment expenditures, by coordinating and optimizing resource consumption and material movements. WMS systems, in particular, are intended to meet the demands of a worldwide supply chain, encompassing distribution, manufacturing, asset-intensive, and service organizations.
How WrxFlo Warehouse Management System Can Help Manage Your Warehouse Inventory
The WMS can help you determine how many orders you have to fulfil month over month, which will allow you to allocate staff accordingly. Having visibility into your operations and inventory insights can help you make informed decisions on how to better manage and optimise your warehouse.
The warehouse management system has numerous vital elements that will assist you in monitoring the products in your storage facilities and managing inventory control. It is often integrated into larger enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems; in other circumstances, it is a stand-alone system. If you want to manage your inventory throughout your company’s whole environment, it is better to acquire one that best suits your needs. The WrxFlo WMS can be tailored to suit the exact needs of your business as it is not as rigid as some of the others already existing.
Benefits of Using WrxFlo Warehouse Management System
- Flexibility: There is a lot of flexibility in the system, of which 20% is tailored to the business, allowing flexible configuration of racks/locations.
- Systems connectivity: The WrxFlo WMS can connect the other business systems on the WrxFlo platform if the customer requires it.
- Cloud base vs On-site: The warehouse team managing the inventory can view the inventory live as it’s on the cloud-based system with no delays.
- Inventory tracking: The data is now recorded on the system and will track the inventory from the moment the stock arrives on site to when the stock is issued out, so there is a record of the inventory movement.
- Improved visibility: The warehouse team can visualise the current part status and action accordingly providing efficiency to the overall business.
- Improved KPIs:The Business can review KPIs, which are set up as reporting functions which will enable the warehouse team and other supply chain teams (procurement) to review information live.
When asked what distinguishes the WrxFlo Warehouse Management system from all the others out there, Ken Sheehan, CTO of WrxFlo said “Unlike other warehouse management that usually take a one size fits all approach, our WMS is tailored to our client’s specific needs. Our WMS can cater to and accommodate items of different sizes that are coming into the warehouse, this is something some of our competitors haven’t quite figured out yet. Like most of our solutions, we take the requirements of the client into account first and to the best of our capability create a solution that would fit their exact needs.”
How the WrxFlo’s Warehouse Management System works
The WrxFlo Warehouse management system works by connecting to the client’s ERP system. However, this can also be set up where a facility does not have an ERP, as WrxFlo can connect to other business systems on the cloud or onsite to pull in the relevant inventory position. The new module manages the entire business inventory, from supplier to the company’s location.
The WrxFlo WMS is designed to track inventory consumption and in-house machine parts as it has full control of the inventory levels. The system works using a QR scanning system implemented throughout the manufacturing process, this is used to scan the product into stock, and everything is automated after that. The system can be implemented, across multiple warehousing locations globally for the same company, which makes it an ideal solution for scaling companies.
