Warehouse Management covers inbound logistics, outbound logistics, inventory valuation and stock take. Users can make deliveries for sales orders and transfer orders from the warehouse.
One can do partial or full delivery of a transfer or sales order. A delivery captures overall outbound process of allocation, picking, packing and dispatch.
User can allocate the stock and generate picking list for warehouse staff. The picking list can be grouped for group of stores to optimize time required for picking process. Uploads are available for easy integration with scanner data.
The store can raise stock requirement indents in ETP Store and the same is available in ETP OMS as store indents in the form of a transfer order. The planners can then allocate the stock to these indents. This function helps retailers to cut down lead time of store requirement fulfillment and drastically reduces the manual processes.
