We implement in WebWMS smart feature (multi-order picking) which help you to optimize your business and reduce picking time and also the cost of operation. One of the feature that we implement in WebWMS is multi order picking.
What means that and how it works?
Practical situation reveals 3 ways to do picking:
- One order picking. This is the normal picking situation: a picker takes an order and go to pick each products of that order. He goes to each location take the quantity of that products and then goes to second location and so on till finish the order. At the end he will have one box (or pallet) with all the products that it is in that order. WebWMS support this feature
- Consolidate picking. This means that 2 or multiple orders is consolidating in one single “order” and the same product from different order will be cumulated into new order (in practical situation multiple order is cumulated for a route for example). That means that the picker has a single order and picked the same product cumulated. At the end he will have a box (or a pallet) with all the products. The driver loads this order and when he goes to clients he split, in the car each client’s order for the consolidated order. Also, WebWMS support this features like any other solutions. This picking method saves time on picking but increase delivery time because the driver must select products for each order in the car before delivery.
- Multi-order picking. For my point of view this is the most efficient way of picking. 2 ore more multiple order are associate into a multi-order picking. For example, 2 orders it is associate into a multi-order. Picker goes with 2 separate boxes (or pallets), each for each order and goes to a location WMS solution tell him how many products to pick for each order and in witch box to put that product (each box is associated with an order of the beginning of the picking process). In this way you can pick multiple orders in the same time, save a lot of time and money. WebWMS support this advance feature and you can pick 2 more orders in the same time (it is not limited the number of order that you can associate in to the multi-order). Not many WMS solution from the market have this complex and advance feature and if they have implement this feature this costs a lot of money and in contrast this feature you can have it from free in WebWMS, because WebWMS is free software solution.
We implement many features that helps you to optimize your business and warehouse operations and I will describe each of this feature in the future posts. Because of this kind of feature, I consider WebWMS one the smartest solution in the market and combine this with low implementation price it makes WebWMS the best solution for your business.
Because of the way that we think WebWMS it is very easy to integrate WebWMS with pick by light or pick by voice solution and add more functionality to the solution.
We implement all this feature because we are business consultants and we help our clients to optimize their logistic business and we put in this WMS solution all my experience in consulting. That’s way WebWMS is different from other solution and that way we can provide you more value than other competitors.
