Microlistics WMS

Microlistics Tier 1 WMS provides customers with an extremely flexible solution platform that can be implemented at a much lower TCO. Of the 4 WMS solution types offered, Express (simplest of the offerings) can be implemented within 35 days. Microlistics offers a tiered approach so clients can move easily on the same WMS platform from Express, to 3PL, to 3PL Chilled, and Enterprise. The Enterprise edition of Microlistics WMS can be implemented within 100 days.

Features and benefits include:

  • Tier 1 Product Without the Tier 1 Cost. The Microlistics WMS provides their customers with a flexible, scalable solution that has a lower TCO as well as employs an architecture where speed to market is significantly quicker (project start date to go live) than other Tier 1 solution providers.
  • Chilled Capabilities. The Microlistics WMS platform for Chilled is specifically designed for manufacturers, 3PLs, and retailers who require perishable management (date-sensitive inventory tracking), production management, track and trace, temperature management, and billing management (cost to serve).
  • 3PL Commerce Solution. The Microlistics WMS platform is specifically designed for 3PL management, enables the 3PL operator to effectively support its clients, while tracking all cost-to-serve elements by the 3PL customer. This platform also offers ecommerce modules inclusive of pick pack (to order), kitting, preassembly/production, wave picking, and order management.
  • Enterprise Solution. The Microlistics WMS Enterprise edition is the Tier 1 solution where a customer can use one single application platform across multiple warehouse locations. Each location can be configured specifically for the environment and that warehouse. This solution is specifically designed for the complex operator. This Tier 1 solution supports advanced reporting/business intelligence, integration gateway, TMS, parcel management/cartonization, labor prediction, billing, ecommerce, production, and rules-based prioritization. It’s integrated to most major ERPs.
  • Billing Management. This feature in the Microlistics WMS tracks every single scan, move, and action in the warehouse back to the Microlistics WMS database, providing a comprehensive and detailed audit trail.
  • Order Management. The Microlistics WMS solution has various modules supporting unique requirements with regards to ecommerce and pick-pack-ship operations.
  • Cross Docking. Microlistics WMS supports the ability to speed up dispatch for urgent orders by automatically creating movements to cross dock from the receival bay. These tasks will take the place of the usual put-away to stock. Cross dock to backorders is also supported.
  • Bill of Material (BOM) and Kitting. A Bill of Materials (BOM) can be maintained in Microlistics WMS on an Individual product or Parent /Child Relationship to enable Kitting of various products. This functionality is configurable based on the requirement of the various site tasks and Microlistics WMS will cover known functionality requirements. The BOM can link multiple components and required quantities to a Master Product. The BOM can also be used when a Production or Kitting movement order is raised in Microlistics WMS. The operator can order the Master Product and Microlistics will automatically order the various components to be moved to the Production/Kitting location if required.
  • System-Directed Put-Away. The Microlistics put-away logic is central to helping improve warehouse efficiency. All pallets and cartons/units that have been received and confirmed into a receivals bay must be lifted and moved to a warehouse location. By ensuring that product is stored in the most suitable location – depending on characteristics such as order size and frequency, weight, temperature requirements, segregation from other products, etc., Microlistics WMS helps improve picking times, as well as minimizes potential for damages and wastage. The system takes into account the dimensions of locations (LWH) and products, as well as weight constraints. Microlistics WMS helps ensure that stock is put away to the most appropriate location. Microlistics WMS allows you to define the sequence locations selected for each product by defining a pick-face as well as a preferred zone hierarchy PZH. Rules for product put-away can be as general or as specific as required.

Elemez

Because B2M understands that mobility within every enterprise is now a mission-critical asset, we give you the platform to manage mobile performance and improve operational intelligence in real-time across all your mobile devices and users. This real-time view allows you to get proactive, preventive, and predictive in managing mobile performance and uptime, instead of always reacting to device failures after they occur. ​

Features and benefits include:

  • Drive Increased Mobile Performance. Just like a Formula 1 racing team, your workers need to be able to rely on their mobile devices and applications, so they can achieve peak performance. Real-time mobile analytics helps ensure that your IT and operations teams have the insight and foresight to monitor their mobile technology and predict and prevent problems so your workers can drive your business forward for you without any interruptions.
  • Monitor the Health of Mobile Applications. Have you ever found that doing a software update has caused a problem with your mobile devices? Do your devices run slowly when your workers use certain applications? Mobile device analytics can give you real-time visibility of the applications in use across your mobile estate, identifying issues such as software conflicts that can cause reduced performance and faster than normal battery drain. Isolate and identify application issues as they occur, and before they become a problem for all mobile workers, with real-time mobile analytics.
  • Prevent Mobile Device Failures. Do your mobile workers complain that their devices' batteries do not last a full shift or their devices are otherwise not operational? Are mobile devices or apps crashing, or devices' batteries not lasting an entire shift a frequent issue for your end users? Far too often, the true health of mobile devices is hidden from those in charge of mobility, resulting in expensive downtime and increasing hidden costs of lost productivity for workers. Real-time Mobile Analytics monitors the real-time health of mobile devices, triggering an alert if a problem is identified. This enables your IT team to proactively identify issues and stop problems before they negatively impact the business. It's time to get proactive, preventive, and predictive on managing mobile performance and uptime, instead of always reacting to device failures after they occur.
  • Relieve User Frustration. Are your users frustrated when their mobile devices hang or reboot? Is this impacting your ability to deliver great service to your customers? There are a number of reasons why mobile devices slow down or suddenly reboot and mobile analytics provides the insights to identify the root cause so you can fix the problem. Your mobile workers have enough challenges to deal with from traffic jams to challenging customers. Don't let mobile disruptions or failures add to their frustrations, which can be quite costly to your company.
  • Keep Your Workers Connected. Do your workers suffer from cellular or wi-fi connectivity problems? Are your data charges spiraling out of control? Real-time Mobile Analytics monitors connectivity inside your building and out in the field, identifying problems so you can fix them. It is also tracks data usage so you can regain control of your mobile bills. Stop connectivity issues in their tracks.
  • Maximize Device Utilization. Have you ever wondered where all your mobile devices are? Have you purchased new devices only to find you had spares but just didn't know it? Companies typically only utilize 60-70% of their mobile estate as they have no idea where the remaining 30-40% of their devices are or they think they are being used when they aren't. Real-time Mobile Analytics gives you the visibility to locate your devices and work out which ones are in use and which ones are simply gathering dust or have been left on a park bench.
  • Lower the True Cost of Ownership (TCO). Controlling the total cost of ownership for mobility can be a challenge, as predicting the costs of replacing devices, monitoring data usage, or otherwise ensuring mobility is up and running 24x7 for mobile workers is often hard to grasp using existing MDM/EMM/TEM tools in the market. Real-time Mobile Analytics changes all of this, by exposing outages as they occur, or are about to occur, and highlighting devices and users that may be overusing data plans or otherwise performing badly. With real-time analytics, those in charge of mobility can finally help control the hidden costs of mobility related to lost productivity in mobile workers and stress on IT resources already stretched too thin. We call this the TRUE cost of ownership, and it's unique to Elemez.
