Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) April 24, 2007
Accellos, Inc., a global provider of warehouse, 3PL, logistics, transportation and mobile fleet management solutions, today announces the release of Accellos Enterprise 3PL Version 2.8, formerly Delfour SmartEnterprise. This new release encompasses a series of new features for warehouse resource management, labor standards, forecasting labor requirements, employee productivity tracking and customer profitability analysis, along with a redesigned look and feel of the programs and menu optimizing system navigation.
"As a group and singly, these new features can enhance productivity significantly for third party logistics operators, whether at the supervisory-administrative level or on the floor," said Joe Couto, Senior Vice President. "They streamline operations and support increased accuracy while enabling 3PL operators to make more effective use of personnel, space and equipment resources while having an improved view of which clients are profitable or not."
The new features and their functions include:
-Operations board: a new operational board specifically designed for warehouse managers and shift and team managers to view labor requirements for a given facility or across multiple facilities. The system will display the labor requirements and current status of activity. This function also introduces an integrated graphics display of key data for easier viewing. A unique set of alerts have also been introduced, in order to provide management with notification of any activities that are not moving along at the expected speed.
-Indirect time tracking: Accellos Enterprise 3PL now tracks both the time between the start and finish of a given activity (direct time) and the time between the end of one activity and the beginning of the next (indirect time).
-Voice-directed picking: Accellos Enterprise 3PL now supports voice-directed picking using Vocollect Voice for hands-free picking. Users can now set up voice profiles that define Vocollect options and use these options to refine the picking process in terms of customers, carriers, consignees, items, orders and warehouse locations. It can also be combined with scanning.
-Improved User Interface: Accellos Enterprise 3PL has been redesigned in order to improve the ease of use and user experience with programs. New colors, fonts and tabs have been added as part of this change.
-New menu format: A new menu tree has been added. Expert users can still user the command mode menu while new users can use the menu tree. Menu tree submenus can be expanded and/or collapsed by clicking on the "plus" or "minus" icons. As programs are opened, the menu tree expands to indicate the program's position in the tree.
In addition to the new features, Accellos Enterprise 3PL v2.8 includes numerous enhancements to existing features as well as refinements to several documents.
