Package Features

Receive Application leverages technology and automates the receiving process of PO and Non-PO items using a handheld device at the receiving dock. Receivers can generate barcode labels for cross docking Non-Stock and Non-PO items to streamline their deliveries. Robust search capabilities provide time saving efforts for tracking high dollar and dated items. The application captures and sets the base for all products entering the facility.

Today’s Challenges

  • Labor intensive put away and pick processes conflict with other supply chain requirements
  • Manual effort creates errors and inefficiencies in locations and product identification
  • Managing multiple warehouse locations manually creates extended and dated inventory issues
  • Department supply and demand requirements are not aligned

It manages the requirements for conducting routine cycle counts and physical inventory. The count review screen on the browser helps identify discrepancies before the data is transmitted to the MMIS reducing the inventory time.
