The Fashion industry is a growing success in the USA. Products are designed and then manufactured overseas resulting in great savings to the supply chain. Indigo’s WMS has a 30 character item master field size ensuring the full ‘style’, ‘ color’ and ‘size’ matrix can be accommodated.
Structured cascading put-away rules ensure the stock is always in the right place at the right time all the time.
Consumer products companies have designed complex and expensive inbound and outbound supply chains that still struggle to deliver world class service levels throughout the distribution chain and at the retail shelf.
In order to successfully contend with the changing requirements of consumers and retailers, companies need to fundamentally transform their distribution footprint and operations within the warehouse.
We have had extensive experience of implementing warehouse management systems in companies operating in the automotive industry. On time in full is not just a buzz phrase for the automotive industry - it is an absolute given. With major car assembly plants running totally flexible lines, the planning and subsequent procurement of stock to meet the needs of the assembly plant is timed to perfection. The costs associated with a delivery failure or non-conformance for suppliers in this area are unthinkable.
Distributors who are looking for a complete, cost-effective warehouse management system need look no further than Indigo WMS. Indigo WMS can fully integrate into existing business software and provide all the necessary functionality required.
The large number of SKU’s and huge variety of item sizes mean that picking these goods in the warehouse is not without its complications. For example, picking a 56 gallon drum of oil with a tiny paint chip stick and everything in between.
Indigo Software's warehouse management system is the ideal solution for the pharmaceutical, chemicals and cosmetics industries. The complex LOT control and expiry nature of these products can stretch to the limit some companies. It is vital that the rotation of these items is not left to chance.
The modules in Indigo WMS all have full lot control built into the architecture of the transactions ensuring there is a full solid audit trail allowing proof of compliance. Each operator moving any item of stock for whatever reason leaves behind a digital footprint in the database.
Companies have designed complex stockless solutions to feed the major retailers with stock on an almost hourly basis. With order to dispatch times and products measured in hours and minutes rather than days it is vital that the warehouse management system (WMS) can handle the high throughput of products with finesse.
Indigo WMS provides a complete real-time picture of all your manufacturing inventory, from the initial receipt of raw materials into the warehouse, to work in progress and right through to shipment of finished goods to the end user. Indigo WMS helps your manufacturing business maintain an optimized stock level balance in your warehouse by minimizing costly excess stock holding levels whilst also ensuring enough supplies are available to fulfil customer orders in a timely manner.
Reducing the time required to pick for production means the team can then begin on sales orders for customers during the same shift, saving time and improving turnaround times using the same level of resource. Previously these could only be picked during the day because operators picking during the night for production would run out of time. Should things ‘go wrong’ in your manufacturing process a WMS will quickly help identify non conformance and will immensely speedup the retrieval rate of goods that are needed to replace a ‘stalled’ works order.
