QC Software's Foundation for a Strong Ecommerce Operation
The Tier-1 Warehouse Control System dynamically manages ecommerce order fulfillment to effectively meet changing demands.
CINCINNATI, OH, December 07, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Ecommerce is a different kind of animal. Distributors convert inventory to sales by generally batch picking and shipping small orders, usually one or two items, to the consumer using overnight or even same day service. Challenges include managing more resources and faster deliveries.
"With business to business fulfillment, there are generally longer lead times, allowing more time to plan and process orders. Ecommerce distributors must fill and ship new orders right away. Many companies are offering value-added services to gain additional business, which puts even more stress on the operation. In this kind of environment, there really is no room for mistakes," states Rich Hite, President of QC Software, a provider of warehouse control solutions to leading companies throughout North America.
In order for the material handling system to keep up with demand, flexible software solutions are essential. The Tier-1 Warehouse Control System provides additional agility to extend the capabilities of the warehouse management system. The Tier-1 Warehouse Control System tracks inventory to ensure accuracy and improve fulfillment rates. Dynamic order management makes it possible to automatically re-route and re-prioritize orders when unexpected changes occur. In addition, the system can quickly scale up as equipment and inventory are added.
The Tier-1 Warehouse Control System uses advanced logic to optimize batch picking. This involves picking multiple orders with the same items in batches to minimize travel time. Orders are later deconsolidated at the packing station, where each item is allocated to a specific order. The cartonization function streamlines the packing process by providing the optimal number and size of cartons for order fulfillment. The system allocates items to specific containers base on weight, volume, dimension, business rules, and other factors.
Finally, the Tier-1 Warehouse Control System fully integrates with multiple front-end systems. This helps ensure that each system and key players have the most accurate information, allowing the supply chain as a whole to operate more effectively.
Through continual monitoring, the Tier-1 Warehouse Control System re-evaluates the warehouse operation and dynamically adapts to exceptions and changes. Lean methodologies are applied to optimize resources and meet the increasing demands of ecommerce.
