Optimise supply chain ERP technology

An Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is typically the engine of your business for managing static and dynamic data from various core modules: Financial management; Supply chain management; Manufacturing and Business intelligence. Although each module is important, the most important factor we feel is the level of integration that the ERP system provides your business for management, reporting and decision making.

Supply chain technology within a warehouse environment has contributed to an increase in warehouse productivity for a number of organisations. A warehouse management system is the brains trust of the warehouse operation. The WMS is typically integrated or part of an ERP system, which translates customer orders to pick requirements where  operators will use various forms of supply chain technology to complete their task. These forms of warehouse technology include: hand held RF scanners, finger scanners, pick to light technology or pick to voice.
