RedPrairie Corporation, the world’s fastest growing supply chain company, has released new DLx Warehouse. The DLx Warehouse application is now implemented in thousands of customer sites across a variety of industries from third party logistics to fast moving retail operations, and is the most implemented (WMS) warehouse management system.
The DLx Warehouse application is multi-site and multi-client and is fully web enabled with all functionality available through a browser. This means Warehouse Managers and operators can access the WMS through an Internet connection, without the complexity of installing software on a dedicated PC therefore reducing installation costs. Clients, customers and suppliers can also view their particular requirements, which are tied to data and access permissions to ensure they only have visibility of details appropriate to their business.
The graphical user interface provides an ergonomic design that guides users within the environment with navigational cues. As with any web system, the system remembers your favourite views, which enables speedy access to your preferred screens.
The new release of DLx Warehouse can now track products by weight, an example of this would be cheese or meat sold by kilogram’s rather than in units. The WMS captures the weight at the point of receipt and picking with manageable tolerances. As with all tasks, this can be completed in real-time on RF terminals, voice terminals or via paper lists.
The DLx Warehouse release adds industry standard web services support using SOAP and WSDL to DLx Warehouse. This allows external applications to easily interface data to, retrieve data from, and access core functionality within DLx Warehouse, effectively making DLx Warehouse a component in the supply chain.
DLxs Warehouse is the only fully integrated Customs and Excise WMS .The WMS is integrated to the RedPrairie duty management system, DutyMaster, allowing Customs and Excise capabilities to be managed as part of warehouse management operations. The latest release enables the user to deal efficiently with all aspects of the duty stamp regulations put in place by some jurisdictions’s Revenue & Customs Departments and supports the New Computerised Transit System (NCTS).
To better support customers outbound options an interface is available within DLx Warehouse to allow communication to Precision Software’s TRAXi3 carrier label printing system.
DLx Warehouse is also fully integrated to DLx Labour, providing customers with robust resource planning and performance reporting tools. RedPrairie customers that have implemented a Workforce Performance Management (WPM) programme using DLx Labour have achieved labour cost savings of 10-25%. The WPM programme provides customers with a tool to improve service level achievement, quality and employee morale. These additional cost savings are realised through the establishment of preferred work methods, accurate expectations for work tasks, and a comprehensive training approach that fosters a performance focused workforce and a continuous improvement environment.
