Automate location management in your warehouse

This software determines the optimal location for each SKU based on a set of rules and criteria predetermined by the logistics manager and an analysis of current and historical demand for each product.

The module calculates the ideal location taking into account the warehouse layout, movements, picking method and equipment used. In doing so, it recommends classification of products according to sales forecasts or demand analysis. This way, SKUs that are usually ordered together are slotted close to each other, optimising operator pick paths.

This is especially useful in the e-commerce and retail industries and in highly seasonal businesses with promotional campaigns, i.e., Black Friday. Warehouse Slotting Software analyses market trends and suggests the redistribution of warehouse locations to facilitate more productive picking and minimise manual errors. Additionally, the module can be configured to make automatic recommendations regularly and even propose suggestions only when a certain benefit threshold is exceeded.

In-warehouse location management

Warehouse Slotting Software, the advanced Easy WMS functionality, requires proper parametrisation of the module and of the warehouse management system using data on the operation of the warehouse, its layout and the assignment of each SKU located in the facility.

The module optimises location management by updating slotting in line with historical, current and future demand for each product. The program suggests new locations constantly, prioritising the movement of SKUs that have the highest turnover at any given time.

Directly connected to operators via RF scanners, Easy WMS Warehouse Slotting Software automatically generates goods redistribution tasks in the facility. The software designates an empty location as a slotting buffer, i.e., a space to temporarily store the goods before placing them in their new optimised locations.
