Traceability & Tracking

THINK WMS provides full traceability for all transactions at handling unit level. This transaction history can be viewed on both the desktop and the handheld scanner and provides full who/what/when information.

Barcoding

THINK have experience of generating and reading bar codes in a range of formats across different industries.

Integration – MES/ ERP/ Financial

THINK have extensive experience of integrating with a wide variety of ERP systems. Typical integrations occur at inbound ASN, receipt, pick creation and outbound ASN. Interfaces have also been created for batch and stock status reporting plus also the need to keep ERP informed of WMS inventory levels.

THINK WMS provides for many differing methods of processing your customers requirements including:

Web Interface: Portal access can be provided to your customers, with a unique user ID and password providing security and confidentiality, they can enter their requirements directly. You retain full control over how and when these requirements are released and scheduled.

Automated spreadsheet: Your customer can simply email their requirements to you and we can process these automatically reducing the need to re-enter their requirements thus improving productivity and removing any keying errors.

EDI: Full Electronic Data Interchange allows for multiple types of customer requirements to be handled, which allows for customer forecasts, short term planning information and shipping requests to be effortlessly processed without the need for any manual intervention. We support many EDI standards including EDIFACT and ODETTE.

Charging

Getting staff to be mindful of recording what needs to be charged in a busy warehouse is notoriously difficult and can lead to regular lost revenue to your business

THINK WMS can provide wide ranging charging functionality which apply pre-determined charge rates at item, supplier and customer levels for all key process areas of a warehouse.

So as items are received, stored, picked and despatched, THINK actively tracks and builds a list of handling charges to ensure that you never again miss that invoice to your customer and that you can provide instant and irrefutable justification of charges.

In addition to these standard charges, at all stages throughout the process the user can easily add ad-hoc charges directly onto the handheld scanner. So if, for example, they need to perform a restack or a shrink wrap operation to an individual pallet then via a simple tap on the screen to select the charge from a list and the finance department instantly know that the charge needs to be applied.

SSCC (Serial Shipping Container Code)

The serial shipping container code (SSCC) is an 18-digit number used to identify logistics units. In order to automate the reading process, the SSCC is often encoded in a barcode. THINK WMS offers the ability to manage these at both receipt and despatch.

Reporting and Analytics

THINK WMS can provide an array of both standard and fully customised Excel exports and Crystal reports for all areas of the system.

Scan Pattern Configuration

Fully configurable, this allows the capture of required data from barcodes containing non-required characters, such as prefixes and other symbols. This feature also provides the necessary configuration to populate multiple data fields from a single scan of one barcode.

Daybook

The THINK Daybook clearly displays all of your inbound and outbound shipments in a familiar and easy to use calendar view. Utilising simple click, drag and drop functionality you are able to view, add, edit and cancel any shipment.

This simple but powerful tool will show you, at a glance, your manpower and resource requirements for hours, days, weeks or even months ahead. You can identify bottlenecks and spikes in demand whilst reviewing the impact of changes to inbound traffic in real-time.

User Permissions

THINK WMS offers full control over what your users and operatives can view and access on both the desktop and mobile scanning devices. THINK’s unique user friendly ergonomics can then be configured so that only what each user needs to use is shown on the menu screens, reducing training and navigation time whilst helping to eliminate potential errors.

User groups can also be designed and quickly applied to any user’s account for such times when their role may need you to be flexible to manage your business needs.
