Significant efficiency improvements in business administration and the warehouse can be expected through implementation of Datapel Warehouse Management System (WMS) and Inventory Controller XE. These include:

  • Improved search times
  • Improved data and inventory reporting
  • Lower inventory costs and stock handling errors
  • Improve productivity and reduce labour costs.

Using a manual paper-based stock management process, searching for stock can take up to 20% of a storeman's time. WMS/ICXE guided picks and flexible search functionality can dramatically reduce search times.

Additional efficiencies can be achieved by reducing errors with guided picks, put-aways and integrating barcode labelling. The Datapel Systems does the thinking for you, so both quality and accuracy increase while your labour costs drop.

The Datapel WMS range of products operate with 2-way integration to your MYOB accounting software.

In order to access inventory, sales, and user information the WMS must synchronise with MYOB. Synchronisation takes between 1-2 minutes depending on your company file size. Synchronisation can be configured to occur daily at a specified time.

For a stand-alone stock control system, the Datapel Inventory Controller XE is designed to operate stand-alone without the need for additional software.

 

Datapel provides a range of stock control systems depending on the size and requirements of your business. You can introduce basic stock control workflows with Inventory Controller XE, or consider comprehensive order fulfilment and distribution processes with WMS Professional Edition, or manage inventory across both production and sales departments of your business with WMS Enterprise Edition.

See Products for our full spectrum of products. You are likely to find one from the Datapel range that is designed specifically for your business.

There are several module options by product range you can consider and can review further via our online store.

 

Datapel also provides barcoding solutions as part of its WMS stock control solutions.

If you are considering using barcodes to further improve efficiency in the warehouse, speak to Datapel about incorporating barcoding with WMS.

By default WMS has full support for barcoding, which makes adding barcode devices to your WMS very easy indeed.

Consider these barcoding options:

Motorola MC3190
  • Barcode printers
  • Barcode scanner devices (tethered or wireless)
  • Barcode PDA terminals (with full mobility and wi-fi connectivity).
  • Tablet devices

If you like to know more about any of our modules, products or suitable hardware devices please contact [email protected]

We are always interested in improvements that save you time, deliver valuable business information, and help you organise your business inventory. If you have a specific need for a unique workflow, import / export business information (such as EDI) or require additional reports, we can customise WMS/ICXE to your specifications before we implement, so the system is ready to work for you from the get-go.

Datapel Systems is also designed in a modular way which is possible to manage our client's unique requirements without the excessive development and maintenance risk that typically accompany custom-developed systems.

Yes, you can implement barcoding to an existing Datapel System because all our product range already supports barcode scanning workflows, such as scan-receive, scan-pick, scan stock take and more.

If you have barcode requirements ask our Datapel staff for more assistance or email [email protected].

The Datapel Warehouse Management System is offered as a software license upon purchase.

Installation of Datapel WMS also requires a 2-stage implementation process:

 

  1. Stage 1 - Preimplementation - includes a full requirements analysis, analysis report and review
  2. Stage 2 - Installation & Training - onsite service to install and configure Datapel WMS and required module options, and training is provided to key operational staff.

 

Once Datapel WMS live, as part of the Datapel Enhancement and Support Services, you receive ongoing phone and email support.

The Datapel WMS comes with online documentation on the Datapel Knowledge Base.

Please contact the Datapel sales team [email protected] or phone 1300 137 082.

A Datapel Sales representative will discuss your requirements at length before preparing a proposal with precise details on the implementation process, post-implementation services and module options required as part of Datapel WMS.

Depending on your location we may work with your existing MYOB Certified Consultant or have a Datapel Partner assist in the implementation of WMS for you.

Implementation is provided directly by Datapel or by a Datapel Partner in your area.
