    Situation

    WMS Solution (Warehouse Management System) was implemented in the company, the system providing automation of the warehouse management processes on the platform Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Due to it the whole cycle of product flow was implemented with consideration of 3PL-operator features (consolidation of freight, movement of pallets, packaging and repackaging processes, optimization of the racks, etc.).
    The company develops constantly, offering new services in the sphere of logistics. Often limited time is assigned to implement software, what makes it hard when the company relies solely on its own IT-department.

    With this regard appeared the necessity to periodically support and implement specific solutions on the base of Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

    Solution

    After the completion of the WMS system implementation SMART business offered to continue the development of the system by transport management automation, mobile devices connection, by the launch of enterprise management planning and introduction of the financial accounting module.

    The first stage of the described development is completed, so the processes of the reception and shipment control of the goods are already organized with the help of Hand-held terminals (mobile terminal, working under Windows CE management, equipped with a barcode scanner and wireless connection module).

    «The main task of SMART business was to provide flexible and customized solution for the automation of the warehouse staff work. eSMART solution on Microsoft Dynamics NAV became such an instrument».

    With the help of Internet Explorer, via a special page, using only service barcodes and barcodes of the documents or goods, user chooses the needed document, compares the goods and imports the quantity.
    Logic of the process is built in such a way that typical mistakes for warehouses like regrading and unauthorized reception of surplus or shortage are totally eliminated.
