A highly integrated warehouse solution must excel in warehouse receiving and put-away, two crucial processes in supply chain management. With SphereWMS, you can transform these often complex and time-consuming functions into a seamless flow.
By streamlining the movement of received goods from the shipping dock into storage, SphereWMS adapts to your unique business rules and warehouse flow, enhancing efficiency and accuracy.
Here's how SphereWMS makes it possible for you to see it, receive it, process it, and put it away – in the most efficient way possible.
The Receiving & Putaway process in warehouse management is more than just moving goods; it's about optimizing the flow, reducing errors, and making the best use of space. SphereWMS takes these challenges head-on by providing a system designed to align with your specific needs.
By automating essential tasks and offering real-time insights, we ensure that your warehouse runs like a well-oiled machine. The benefits are tangible – faster processing times, lower costs, enhanced accuracy, and a more satisfied workforce.
SphereWMS streamlines receipt processing, integrating essential tasks like Advance Receipt Notice (ARN) Handling, Web-based Supplier Advance Ship Notice (ASN) Entry, and Put Away Entry/Edit into one cohesive system. By streamlining communication with suppliers and facilitating quick and error-free data entry, SphereWMS makes receipt processing efficient and effective. From label printing to automated email notifications, every aspect is designed to simplify your workflow, enhance accuracy, and provide full visibility into receipt status and details, keeping your warehouse receiving and put-away operations in perfect harmony.
SphereWMS’s automated receiving feature uses advanced data capture technologies such as barcode scanning and RF to eliminate manual data entry, significantly reducing the chance of human error. This leads to faster warehouse receiving processes, improved accuracy in inventory management, and ultimately enhances the efficiency of the entire warehouse operations.
The pallet-level handling feature in SphereWMS streamlines the receiving and put-away process. When goods are received at a pallet level, the system enables you to trace each pallet to its exact storage location. This not only expedites the put-away process but also ensures swift retrieval of goods during order fulfillment, optimizing warehouse space utilization.
SphereWMS’s lot control feature enables you to track products grouped in lots, enhancing traceability and inventory accuracy. With this feature, you can monitor the movement of goods in your warehouse based on lot numbers, expiry date tracking, and ensuring compliance with industry regulations.
With SphereWMS, discrepancies between received and expected goods are quickly identified and reported. This feature facilitates faster resolution of issues, maintains supplier accountability, minimizes loss, and ensures accurate inventory levels, supporting efficient purchasing and accounting practices.
SphereWMS offers customizable workflows that cater to your unique operational needs. You can tailor your receiving processes, from dock door assignments to put-away strategies, ensuring maximum efficiency. This feature allows you to adapt the WMS to your business instead of adapting your business to the WMS.
SphereWMS allows for efficient handling and recording of damaged goods received. It automates the creation of damage reports, streamlines the claims process with vendors, and ensures accurate adjustments in inventory records. This helps in maintaining accurate inventory data, reduces financial losses, and enhances supplier accountability.
SphereWMS facilitates the generation of accurate Over, Short, and Damaged (OS&D) reports. The system allows you to identify discrepancies, damaged goods, and short deliveries quickly for efficient resolution. This ensures accurate inventory records, reduces losses, and improves supplier management.
