Datex FootPrint WMS is ideal for organizations in need of a powerful solution to provide the visibility, functionality, scalability and flexibility to be used across an enterprise, in multi-warehouse, multi-location scenarios. Developed “from the ground up” using the latest Microsoft technology, the Datex warehouse management system includes advanced functionality, real time inventory visibility and system scalability, critical to large enterprise business operations.
What is Datex FootPrint WMS Enterprise?
Datex uses Microsoft technology to give enterprises the ability to be more agile, competitive and flexible in meeting the dynamic world of business today. Built on the Microsoft .NET platform, Datex FootPrint ® WMS is ideal for multiple warehouses and multi-locations. Datex FootPrint WMS utilizes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or 2012 to enable the use of features such as Integration Services that can simplify an otherwise complex integration with an outside system that is not using SQL as the database platform. With code optimized using object oriented programming, the Datex warehouse management system can now access pre-existing functions to create new functionality, allowing innovation to proceed more rapidly. To improve the ability to create customized reports using a diverse range of data, Datex FootPrint WMS uses Microsoft SQL Reporting Services. Users can select from a wide array of standardized reports or create customized reports on the fly. One of the latest innovations for the Datex warehouse management system is the use of Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation to enable changes to business processes without costly changes to hard code. Using the latest technology assures large enterprises of the stability, visibility and innovative functionality needed to ensure that multi-warehouse operations run smoothly
A warehouse management system (WMS) must be able to provide real time information not just in one warehouse or location but throughout an enterprise. By facilitating visibility of real time information, executives and inventory owners can make critical decisions with the best information possible. Datex FootPrint WMS allows users to see close up as well as far and wide, across the enterprise and with drill down detail. By using both a microscopic and telescopic approach, enterprises can be sure to have the information they need immediately, whenever needed.
A large enterprise must be able to grow organically and change dynamically. Concerns naturally arise as to whether the business can support increased volumes with available resources including warehouse operations and warehouse management systems. Datex FootPrint WMS utilizes service-oriented architecture (SOA) to more easily integrate with existing infrastructures, mobile devices, radio frequency identification (RFID) and material handling equipment. Developed with full multi-tenant capabilities and scalable architecture, the Datex warehouse management system provides a central point of control over warehouse operations across multiple facilities in a diverse range of locations. New business volume can be handled without traditional concerns regarding transaction volumes and the enterprise can be assured of full, accurate warehouse operations across the enterprise.
Datex FootPrint WMS features advanced functionality associated with industry leading supply chain software solutions. The Datex warehouse management system includes full Track and Trace by Lot, SKU, UPC, serial number, batch, vial, component and ingredient. The warehouse management system developed by Datex facilitates FDA 21CFR Part 11 compliance through full audit trail and electronic signature, essential for pharmaceutical, medical devices and other life sciences inventory.
The Datex warehouse management system accommodates a wide range of inventory including bulk goods, precious metals, cheese and dairy to apparel, building supplies and pharmaceuticals. The WMS system incorporates innovative features that produce effective handling of goods across the spectrum including both dry and cold storage.
At the center of Datex FootPrint WMS for the Enterprise is Workflow. The Datex warehouse management system puts enterprise operations in control of their business, diminishing costly dependence on IT developers and programmers to make changes to hard coded systems. Using Business Process Modeling, Datex maps out business processes as distinct activities, logic and decision points. The sets of activities, logic and decision points are grouped to create “workflow”, the means by which business operations are powered. Typical workflows include receiving, putaway and other inventory management operations. Once created, the workflows can be changed by trained IT professionals saving time, costly professional service fees and labor. Using the workflow feature, Datex enables each client to become “an agile enterprise”. This gives each company the competitive advantage to make changes to business processes, speed up onboarding of new clients and react quickly to the dynamic marketplace.
Datex now includes customizable reporting. Even non-technical users can create customized reports “on the fly” by simply dragging and dropping fields into the format of their choice. Reports can be saved, shared via a web portal, set up as subscriptions and more.
Combined with other top notch functionality, Datex FootPrint WMS now offers an optional leading edge Executive Dashboard with elegant Business Intelligence. The Executive Dashboard of the Datex warehouse management system includes drill down detail to real time information.
