AutoPower System Profit by Intention: Warehouse Management

AutoPower Warehouse Management

From single warehouse to multi-warehouse operations the AutoPower Warehouse Management System (WMS) is a best-of-breed solution for the Aftermarket Warehouse Distributor. The WMS is infused with extensive inbound order management and outbound warehouse operation functionality including but not limited to:

EDI advanced shipping notices from suppliers
Bar code scanning to and from inventory
Put-away and Returns Processing
Core Return
Product Labeling
Bin Locations
Picking
Packing
Staging
Shipping

Inbound Management unites continuous inventory visibility with immediate data validation and verification, enabling process improvements in inventory cycle planning, space utilization and productivity in the warehouse.

Inbound EDI Advanced Shipping Notices (ASN) provides unmatched pre-receipt visibility, knowledge about backorders, estimated time of arrivals and tracking information.

Inventory Cycle Counting and Picking Bar Code Systems. Look closely into any competitive business and you’ll find barcodes visible at all stages of operations – accurately identifying raw materials, tracking work in process, managing inventory, directing shipments and providing lifetime identification for service and warranty management. The benefits are clear too – accurate information, real-time visibility and a highly productive work force.

These Benefits Show Up in Many Ways:

  • Research found that companies who support their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) with real-time automated data collection achieve a 50% higher return on their ERP investment than those who do not. 
  • Warehouse operations supported with wireless barcode input commonly achieve 99.x% inventory accuracy. 
  • Experienced typists make one error approximately every 300 keystrokes. Entering data by barcode scanning keeps errors – and the time and labor needed to resolve them – out of operations.
  • All businesses in our industry should take advantage of barcoding to free up workers and reduce the paperwork needed to manage assets, supplies and shipments.

It’s clear to see how organizations rely on barcoding to keep errors and inefficiency out of their operations. What’s less clear is what it takes to make a barcode system reliable and effective. This is where AutoPower's installation and implementation experience can help you.

Order Management provides full visibility of inventory, orders, backorders and work orders in the warehouse for optimal workload planning, staffing efficiency, increased order throughput and enhanced warehouse planning. 

Outbound Management enables better management of outbound orders, reducing order fulfillment time by interfacing picking, packing, staging and shipping activities to increase order throughput and eliminate inventory backflow.
