MARKHAM, Ontario (PRWEB) February 1, 2006
Version 2.6 of Headwater Technology Solutions Inc.’s WarehouseLogic warehouse management system incorporates several new features that provide greater control, expedited operations and more efficient warehouse management, along with numerous enhancements to existing features, it was announced by Senior Vice President Joe E. Couto.
WarehouseLogic is the central element of Headwater’s industry-leading SmartEnterprise third party logistics (3PL) management suite, which was launched in Spring 2003 as a completely new system that brought the advantages of graphical user interface control and an expanded suite of management capabilities to the previous WarehouseLogic 3PL solution.
The WarehouseLogic product suite enables 3PL clients to have unique work flow processes by shipper and customer within each client profile. Release 2.6 incorporates a new foundation layer that leverages multiple forms of radio frequency, supporting not only conventional radio frequency terminal and barcode technology but also RFID and Voice. The new framework is based on the Service-Oriented Architecture.
The new release also puts in place a new approach for deploying concurrent RF technology within a single facility. RF, RFID and Voice can be applied where it is best suited to meet specific client needs or to achieve the best productivity gains.
Major improvements to current modules include the following areas:
Appointment System, Directed Move System, Online Help System, Outbound Load Building, RF Replenishment, Reporting, Billing, Labor Management, Warehouse Operations and Records, and Inventory Transfers, and Catch Weights among others.
“WarehouseLogic is the core of the SmartEnterprise 3PL solution, and Headwater strives constantly to maintain it as the state-of-the-art public warehouse system,” Couto said. “Headwater’s ongoing development program is structured on four pillars of support for our customers: improved sales and revenue, cost reduction, improved customer service and increased productivity.
“Each of these enhanced features represents yet another tool that 3PL providers can use deliver higher quality service, maximize the return on their physical and labor resources, and ultimately, achieve a more effective and more profitable enterprise.”
