Warehouse Management Solution

Get More from Automated Logistics Process Management

An optimized logistics system requires a full understanding of management processes, which depends on the ability to acquire data from business operations, transform it into information, and make it available at various decision-making levels: warehouse manager, operations director, and top management.
The Agile platform, thanks to its full integration with existing company information systems, allows automatic acquisition and homogenization of data from various sources into a single cloud-accessible database.
Discover how Agile Warehouse Management solutions can help you improve the management of your company’s processes.

Why Automate Logistics Processes Today?

The competitive advantage of a logistics system depends on its ability to make handling and storage operations fast and secure by managing the information flows associated with them. Given the growing informational needs associated with the increasing amount of data linked to individual load or handling units, this activity cannot be performed manually and requires the use of new technologies for the automation of fully or partially structured processes.

Automating processes through Agile development enables the creation of efficient, integrated, and sustainable logistics by providing:

  • real-time information on the status of the warehouse (Real-Time Elaboration)
  • safe and fast traceability of materials (Reliable Information)
  • proper planning of warehouse operators’ activities with the ability to anticipate operational needs (Behind Visible Line Operation)
  • optimization of space and inbound and outbound logistics operations
  • reduction of human errors during warehouse loading, picking, packing, and delivery

System Interoperability

Interoperability is the ability of a system to work with others without requiring special integration or adaptation efforts from the user.

With greater control over business processes, it is possible to achieve significant reductions in time, costs, and errors in information processing, while simultaneously improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the organization.

With a modular development approach, it is possible to design complementary solutions that integrate with external systems, such as measuring instruments, PLCs, and complex data sharing with national and international ERP systems through EDM (Electronic Data Processing) protocols.

Under these conditions, the solutions are complete and autonomous, but have standard interfacing systems with the ability to manage calls to external applications.

The Benefits of Hybrid Cloud for the Supply Chain

Companies often use infrastructures, platforms, applications, and tools for logistics management from different suppliers. Proprietary tools that are not developed to communicate with each other and applications that operate in the cloud with extreme slowness. It is necessary to connect environments through more advanced infrastructure, management, and development, capable of integrating, not replacing, existing ERP and systems within the company.

A hybrid cloud-based infrastructure allows for the modification and updating of management activities and processes at any time and place according to business needs, also supported by a team of cutting-edge designers who keep Agile solutions easily scalable and technologically advanced.

The modules included in the solution:
N

Goods Receiving and Acceptance

Interfaced with the ERP management system, it handles:

  • the recording of warehouse entry documents, counting phases, creation of load units, and their identification through labels;
  • the sorting of shortages (cross-docking);
  • the storage phases, with algorithms that guide operators to place materials according to company rules;
  • generation of the loading movement on the ERP with identification of ordered and received quantities.

It interfaces with the Quality Solution’s Controls module to guide the correct placement of materials during the control phase.

N

Picking Lists

Interfaced with the management system, it receives information related to orders (production, subcontracting, customers). The information is organized into pick lists.

This module assigns available materials based on configurable service policy priorities according to company needs. Additionally, the system organizes picking activities based on the specific handling equipment used and warehouse zones.

Using mobile devices, operators are guided through picking missions with optimized routes, following single-order picking, batch picking with subsequent sorting, and pick-and-pack logic. Each picking movement, if necessary, is forwarded to the management system for appropriate updates.

N

Statistical Module

It offers a series of statistical charts on activities and maintenance costs of company assets.
It also processes a set of basic indicators for maintenance.

N

Deposit Management

It manages data alignment automations with the ERP system. It generates a warehouse receipt movement at the end of each production activity, thereby enabling material traceability.

N

Inventory Management

It manages total or rotating inventories. It selects items to be inventoried and organizes operations for counting the handling units (UDCs).

The module includes reporting on:

  • inventory discrepancies
  • updating/correcting stock levels.
N

Shipping

It manages the preparation of shipment packages, checking the items that are progressively placed in the packages. At the end of the process, a packing list is issued. To complete the module, a process can be activated to guide the loading of packages onto shipment vehicles.

Custom modules
N

Performance Metrics

To set up KPIs, indicators, and charts related to efficiency and handling costs.

The module contains some standard indicators.

N

Integration

To interface various types of tools to support warehouse operators: PLCs, scales, barcode readers, piece counters, according to specific organizational specifications of individual companies.
