Warehousing and Distribution
Managing inbound dock operations can be chaotic at times. Datex supply chain software solutions include yard management to help warehouse professionals effectively manage the yard attached to a warehouse or distribution center (DC). Datex FootPrint WMS yard management functionality includes dock door appointment scheduling, trailer check in and check out, cross docking and trans load, container tracking, trailer validation and other features key to the successful operation of inbound dock operations.
Datex FootPrint WMS Features for Warehousing and Distribution
Datex FootPrint WMS includes commanding functionality for receiving, putaway, picking, track and trace and order management. Ideal for handling a diverse range of inventory from bulk goods, apparel, serialized goods and electronics to pharmaceuticals and food, the Datex warehouse management system handles multi-commodities within the same warehouse effortlessly while ensuring maximum efficiency and productivity.
Drag & Drop Reporting
The Datex warehouse management system was developed to handle multi-warehouse, multi-customer scenarios and has an easy to use sophisticated billing system. Non-technical users will love the reporting system. Users can simply “drag and drop” fields into the format of their choice to create customized reports or select one of the many standardized reports within the system.
Powerful and Customizable Workflows
Datex FootPrint WMS includes a powerful workflow engine that manages business processes throughout the operation. Using workflow instead of a warehouse management system that uses static hard coding means operational processes can be changed more readily, saving your business time, labor and money.
Real Time Visibility
Warehousing and distribution operations using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology typically find the technology to be highly effective in increasing accuracy, increasing efficiency and productivity leading to greater profitability. Using RF technology and mobile computing options, warehouse and distribution operations can ensure that changes are posted to the warehouse management system in real time. This allows for quick capture of information and accurate system data for billing, reporting and more.
