Infoware 3PL Warehousing Business Benefits
Your customers demand accurate stock control
Give them full transparency to see stock levels; where stock is in the warehouse and stock aging controls. You can separate saleable stock from quarantine or under bond stock but still provide full visibility.
Allow customers to immediately answer their questions via 24/7 web portal
For job movement status and stock levels. Infoware automatically sends an email or EDI message of stock arrivals and picking confirmations. Customers can perform online stock aging or batch tracking checks plus retrieve past copies of PODs [no admin effort for you].
Your customers demand barcode scanning accuracy
Of all stock movements and stock aging. While possible to implement without bar code scanning – why not give your business that extra level of accuracy and control, and credibility to your customers.
Remove data entry
Remove data entry bottlenecks and you can improve service levels for your customers – no roadblocks of order entry or other admin bottlenecks. NO data entry mistakes. Data entry is replaced by creating orders from PDF documents emailed by customer; formal EDI exchanges or getting your 3PL customers to enter orders via web portal along with their invoice ‘paperwork’.
Infoware’s Run Planner automatically creates runs based on postcode or as you prefer for each consignee. The drop sequence will default but you may override as required. Customer orders can then be directly picked by order; by pallet or wave picked as is most efficient for you. Inners are picked separately to cartons/pallets so they can be picked and packed first for shipping.
Meet your customer’s demands
with flexible picking algorithms – including FIFO by default; strict rotation, pick by batch, pick to weight and other algorithms. For inner/each/bottle picks, perform these first and then track each carton with its content.
Surprise your customers with extra customer care with no effort
Allow your 3PL customers to view days stock on hand to help with their stock management and procurement (their system probably does not show this); send amber and red alerts as date sensitive products approach BBD. There may even be other alerts you can automate for your customers to show your appreciation.
WMS invoices ready for review and sending?
Handling, freight; storage charges; admin fees automatically calculated plus includes any additional charges you have added.
Add RF Scanning accuracy *
When items need to be tracked individually with their own unique barcode, such as serialised stock, individual pallets/bales or cartons such as meat products, Infoware allows cartons to be “tally scanned” onto a pallet when received. Each pallet when moved or dispatched takes its tally scan summary and carton details so each carton is handled once only – but included in dispatch/container weights when shipped.
“An added benefit is that our clients can review stock aging, right down to carton level in real time. Infoware’s technology affords Doboy’s clients that often elusive, competitive edge!”
Includes Integrated Accounting
No need for additional third party accounting. Infoware’s 3PL warehousing solution includes Infoware’s full accounting – general ledger; BAS; Debtors; Creditors; Payroll; Bank Reconciliation and Assets.
