The most important part of managing supply chain is inventory – where it’s coming from, where it’s stored, and where it needs to go when it’s time to leave the warehouse.  Controlling inventory movement to maximize profitability requires a strong warehouse management system (WMS) and reliable integration with your enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.

Many things can go wrong inside the warehouse if you aren’t keeping a close eye on your warehouse operations and inventory.  Inbound packing slips need to be verified with orders to make sure you received the right products in the right quantities.  You didn’t buy inventory to sit on the shelves, so once inbound shipments are verified, inventory needs to be shelved or boxed according to customer needs.  Assembling boxes or pallets for customers can be a tricky process as well.  You may have multiple pallets for a single customer that go on the same truck with smaller boxes for other customers.  Staging deliveries so that boxes get on the right trucks, and in the right order is also important to optimize delivery routes.  All of these details can’t be managed properly with paper trails and good intentions.

WithoutWire™ (WoW) is a powerful WMS that can be easily integrated with Microsoft Dynamics® NAV to control warehouse operations and provide rich financial insight.  WoW streamlines and adds automation to receiving, pick and pack, shipping, and other warehouse operations.  Your warehouse team can use smartphones, tablets, and ruggedized mobile devices to capture inbound and outbound inventory.  Voice activation and other apps on these types of mobile devices allow hands-free communication and data-entry and permits time-tracking, camera use, and even GPS tracking.  WoW also offers the ability to manage physical inventory, track stock rotations and bin transfers, and allows reason codes for the various adjustments that can occur throughout the inventory-handling process.  Together, these features make fulfilling and processing orders, while monitoring rotating inventory, easier and more accurate.

A busy warehouse with high inventory turns needs constant monitoring and real-time inventory counts whether inventory is coming in, allocated to a customer, or headed out for delivery.  Put these two powerhouse solutions together and you can maintain a smooth warehouse, keep customers happy, and optimize profits.  Contact Appolis for more information about how to improve inventory tracking in Microsoft Dynamics NAV with WoW.
