Automating processes ensures efficiency and traceability
By having software that coordinates tasks in the warehouse, you have a history of the movement of each product, increasing security and traceability of the inventory. If any problem happens or is close to happening, the system provides you with all the data to identify where the failure occurred or will occur, as well as those involved. With WMS Rx, your logistics management is more efficient and assertive.
Visual Management: anticipating problems and better investment direction
Information and indicators are essential for excellent management. Leading Supply Chain companies have all their numbers and operation data in real time, permeated in all areas of the warehouse. And with WMS Rx, that can be a reality for your company. The system offers Visual Management, through which the manager readily has information on the operation, that is, it is possible to closely monitor each process at the exact moment it is being executed.
But the data is not exclusive to just the manager. With Visual Management, the entire team has access to the dashboards, presented on monitors located in strategic positions in the warehouse, which allows failures to be predicted and corrected even before they happen. Another advantage is that, when monitoring all processes, the manager can identify bottlenecks and direct investments to the sector that needs improvement.
For your management to be complete, it is also important to assess the performance indicators of your operation. With WMS Rx, you can analyze all the results of your warehouse, with parameterizable KPIs, aligned with your company’s strategies. What does your management gain from this? With complete performance reports, it is much easier to measure the productivity of each employee or sector, monitor order fulfillment deadlines, analyze transportation costs, measure the profitability of your business, in short… The key metrics become your allies to assess whether your results are in line with your goals, which really helps in decision-making.
