Software solutions for distribution and warehouse management

Our Mobile Connect™ software apps – such as our electronic proof of delivery (ePoD) system – will streamline a range of warehouse and distribution operations. For instance, ePoD provides:

Mobile Connect screens• Accurate and reliable tracking and tracing of products that have left the warehouse.
• A fully automated, streamlined process that enables these products to be delivered quickly and effectively.
• The ability to raise invoices without unnecessary delay, as ePoD reduces the risks of costly and time-wasting disputes.

Mobile Connect™ is ideal for use with both small and large scale inventories and can be used for in-house, third party distribution or e-fulfilment. It supports multiple producer locations or multiple sites. In addition to our off-the-shelf apps, we can provide you with customised software for distribution and warehouse management. This could include applications such as pre-receipt and receipt of goods; picking, packing and tracking products; asset management; storing; repackaging; despatching goods for delivery; stock control; inventory management; auditing; maintenance; security and safety.

We can also provide the mobile hardware you need, a range of managed services and a hosted server environment. Ultimately, our warehouse and distribution solutions lead to lower inventory holding costs and less cash tied up in unnecessary stock.

Putting it into practice

A recent case study involving WH Bowker shows how a typical solution can be implemented and the potential benefits involved. The company wanted an application that would mobilise its warehouse management system in real time, to eliminate manual processing and reduce human error.

We provided a Windows Tablet client and web-based management portal, which is integrated with the warehouse management system to enable the import and export of data and scheduled jobs. Our solution has led to a reduction in paperwork; fewer manual errors; and less time needed to complete jobs. A lower human input combined with real-time updates has meant faster invoicing and improved response and performance times.
