Footprint® is the new version of the company’s Warehouse Management System created using Microsoft .NET. The .NET framework underlies most new applications created for the Windows platform and illustrates Datex’s commitment to continuously providing their customers with the most current technology. Footprint® includes all the functionality provided in the previous version of the software along with new features such as container tracking, BOL signature capture, image capture, voice recognition, yard management system and ad hoc reporting. Additionally, the systems standard features include lot control, pallet tracking, catch weight, system-directed tasks, complete inbound and outbound operations, EDI capabilities, multiple stock rotations, and full reporting capabilities.
“The development of this new version of our WMS is the result of diligent R&D work” said David Castanon, Director of Project Management. “As a software company, we must stay on top of the latest developments in technology. Developing a robust and complete system such as ours is not an easy task. We have taken all the functionality provided by our previous WMS, added many new features that we have collected from our experience with multiple clients, and have put together a reliable, efficient, user-friendly and high-tech system. The new Footprint® is a complete WMS system that can be used by small, medium and large warehouses, and is simple so that users do not need to be computer wizards in order to get anything done”.
