Easy WMS: get a competitive edge in your supply chain
The Easy WMS warehouse management system is an information management software whose purpose is to streamline the physical management and tracking of the flow of goods, from entry into the warehouse to dispatch. This entire process is based on continuous planning and provides comprehensive monitoring of activities and real-time inventory control.
It has a wide range of uses, as it is aimed at any sized company from a variety of sectors, from a small company with a manually operated pallet rack warehouse using paper tracking or radio frequency, to a large or mixed automated warehouse installation.
The installation of Easy WMS optimises all the movements, operations and processes within the warehouse, and allows control of its core operations:
- Reception of goods
- Storage and inventory
- Order preparation
Easy WMS grows and evolves alongside a company. The system has two optional apps so the user can adapt the software configuration to their needs, via a very intuitive and easy-to-use interface: Easy S, for configuration, graphic design and simulation; and Easy Builder, to customise everything from workflows, to reports or labels.
Two options for setting up the solution show its great flexibility:
Cloud-based implementation model, with a 100% online interface. The customer accesses the management system, its associate apps and updates all from a subscription-based online service, with the utmost security and without having to invest in an infrastructure to house the software.
With this option, both the software and the hardware required for its operation will be housed in the customer’s installations. In the hierarchical control and management structure, Easy WMS is located in the layer immediately below the ERP of the company, with which it communicates directly. There are no intermediate layers and the possibility of errors in data transmission is minimal.
Since distribution systems are considered a strategic element within supply chain management, the implementation of Easy WMS gives a company acompetitive edge, as it entails cost savings, improved service quality to the end customer and, ultimately, the maximisation of warehouse profitability.
In other words, if the warehouse is the regulating element between supply/manufacture and demand, the incorporation of the Easy WMS meets this demand both flexibly and satisfactorily all at the least possible cost. The consequence is the optimisation of all the activities concerning the flow of materials and products from the supplier to the consumer.
