Warehouses are crucial parts of the overall supply chain. These are the very touch points at which each product stops and is processed, thereby consuming space and time in terms of labor hours. Thus, space and time then, become expenses. Harnessing technology to streamline the layout and operations of a warehouse can help reduce overall labor costs, optimise warehouse space utilisation, and thus enhance the end-to-end flow of processes.
Warehouse & Distribution Management Systems (WDMS) play a crucial role in controlling the placement, storage and movement of materials within a warehouse along with carrying out associated transactions. New-age warehouses need an application which is capable of factoring ground realities of a modern warehouse, complexities of the processes and skill sets of those handling the cargo. A warehouse management software system which provides real time visibility, is easy to interface with third party applications and has been developed based on industry benchmarked processes is imperative for keeping pace with the growing business needs. In global economy, warehouses need to respond to growing trade with scalable warehouse systems. Moreover, the system also needs to be readily configurable to suit individual business needs. This can be achieved with next-generation systems which are both web-based and mobile-enabled.
PYXIS is one such state-of-the art, integration-friendly, web-based warehouse management software that encompasses a wide spectrum of warehouse activities right from the arrival of cargo, storage, location management, to dispatch. PYXIS is readily configurable wherein user can define location rules, package types, pick-up rules, shipment procedures, packaging techniques and all other significant details regarding warehouse operations. It optimises these tasks based on detailed algorithmic rule engines and enables manufacturers, distributors and retailers to optimise their day-to-day warehouse activities while improving space utilisation, lowering inventory carrying costs and boosting productivity.
