Piscataway, NJ Â QSSI (<a href="http://www.qssi-wms.comhttp://www.qssi-wms.com">http://www.qssi-wms.com</a>), a technology leader in providing Distribution, Fulfillment, Warehousing Automation and Supply Chain Software, announced the release of PowerHouse version 7.1 today. Version 7.1 introduces several additional components to the version 7.0 release of late 2002.
"[PowerHouse] Version 7 was a very good release," said Robert Banczak, Director of Product Development at QSSI. "It introduced some powerful tools for a warehouse manager, especially those dealing with production lines and 3PL operations. Our primary reason for doing a minor release was to include more functionality that did not make the deadline for the major version release and to put several usability enhancements in the hands of the users."
The 7.1 Update adds integrated support for Cubiscan devices and a seamless tie in to FreightQuote.com to provide on-line freight rate shopping to the already comprehensive features provided by PowerHouse v7.0. The update also introduces enhancements such as integrated WYSIWYG label design, improved language translation capabilities and automatic holds based on receipt types to existing cycle counting, order processing, receiving and administrative maintenance modules.
Cubiscan (<a href="http://www.cubiscan.comhttp://www.cubiscan.com">http://www.cubiscan.com</a>) provides equipment for measuring the dimensions and wieghts of products and shipping cartons. PowerHouse v7.1 is capable of receiving this information directly from a Cubiscan device and using the data to produce accurate item configurations and shipping volumes.
Freightquote.com (<a href="http://www.freightquote.comhttp://www.freightquote.com">http://www.freightquote.com</a>) is an Internet service that analyzes shipping costs from over 50 carriers to derive the best rate possible. PowerHouse v7.1 can provide warehouse managers with a transparent, direct link to Freightquote.com, calculating the weight, volume and classification of the shipment, sending a quote request, receiving the quote and creating truck scheduling and shipping records based on the response.
