Eskay's Warehouse Rx(R) WMS Software Prevents Out-Of-Stock, Overstock, Reduce Order Picking Cycle Times 50-100%
SALT LAKE CITY - If you don't have it or can't find it, you can't ship it. And nothing can drive customers away faster than not having what they want, when they want it. Traditionally, companies would prevent out-of-stock situations by ordering additional safety stock. But that increases inventory costs and can lead to a glut of unsold inventory.
ESKAY offers a better solution with its Warehouse Rx(R) Warehouse Management System (WMS) software. Providing real-time inventory control, Warehouse Rx tracks items from receipt through storage, picking, and shipping, preventing lost inventory and out-of-stock conditions. Product information is available by calling 800-253-1003 or online at www.eskay.com.
"With real-time inventory control, you always know what you have and where you have it," said ESKAY product manager Craig Welch. "You can eliminate excessive overstock, reducing inventory levels and their related costs by 15 to 20%. "What's more, because workers don't have to search for items, you can reduce order pick cycle times by 50 to 100%."
To prevent out-of-stock conditions, Warehouse Rx directs automated replenishment of items when inventory drops below a predetermined level. Workers can manually restock the pick face or automated material handling systems can deliver replenishment stock to the pick face.
Warehouse Rx provides real-time information on item levels, order status, and operator activity.
Cycle count processes ensure accurate inventory records, reducing or eliminating the need for physical inventories. Counts can be ordered for a specific item, by item and lot, or for all items in a specified range of locations.
