Warehouse Management Systems

eCWMS – our own, internally developed warehouse management system, tailored for each individual customer.

Our system is designed to manage all warehousing activities for wholesale, retail and eCommerce.  From managing PO information via EDI, through:

  • Receipting
  • Putaway
  • Pick and pack
  • Door management & loading
  • Stock movement
  • Stock count
  • Cycle count

From source to shelf, eCWMS manages all the warehouse activities for wholesale, retail and eCommerce, working  with hand-held terminals to receipt product and using customer defined rules to mange the product eg. FIFO / FEFO / Bonded vs non-Bonded.  Customer specific reports are generated for receipt, despatch, stock levels and pending activities and these can be transferred automatically.

eCWMS is web-based and so product can be managed anywhere and each customer has their own individual platform.  It is part of the ACS suite of programmes designed to give you full supply chain visibility and control.
