The top 5 benefits of using a Mobile Warehouse Managament Solution (WMS)
Tasklet is a mobile warehouse management solution (WMS) designed specifically for Microsoft Dynamics products. This solution utilises handheld electronic devices and integrates with your Microsoft Dynamics NAV software, using barcoding to improve the efficiency around the pick and put away process, monitoring and checking stock levels, and moving products between locations. If you’ve considered using a mobile WMS before and want to know more about the benefits of using such a solution, read on for our top 5 benefits.
As the integration between Microsoft Dynamics NAV is seamless, the warehouse worker receives their designated picks directly onto an industrial strength mobile device. The picker is given the location of the product and the confirmation is a simple scan of the barcode whether on the product itself or on the bin. Confirmation of the pick is instant, as is confirmation that the right product has been scanned. The process is designed to be quick, accurate and simple; it even works if you have intermittent wireless signal.
Reduce human error
If you’re currently using a manual system to run your warehouse, then you’ll be aware of the risks associated with doing so. While your staff can be extra vigilant about maintaining stock levels and packing away products in the correct locations, there is always the worry of human error. Using a mobile WMS system can increase the accuracy of the entire operation; not only making sure that you are holding the correct amount of stock and it is in the appropriate place, but also assisting your staff in their day-to-day jobs around the warehouse.
Important for your end users
Providing traceability of your stock in the warehouse is especially important for those businesses who operate on a large scale. Tasklet provides the end users with clear visibility of stock received, put away and available for sale. Providing your team with this information will improve their knowledge of the warehouse and improve customer service, allowing your employees to find the information that they need with ease.
Track stock adjustments
The dreaded stock count is an undertaking that businesses of any size deals with reluctantly. A solution such as Tasklet means that these processes are much easier to complete, as data can be collected on the go, rather than all at once. Using mobile devices you can update Dynamics NAV with additional stock, or stock no longer available and can be used to bolster the official stock count by cross-referencing with Dynamics NAV. When analysing your stock through Dynamics NAV you can even apply reason codes to help you keep track with unexpected changes in stock level.
Smart stock control
Above all, the main benefit of Tasklet is its integration with Microsoft Dynamics NAV. This world-leading ERP software offers your business the best in functionality and flexibility when it comes to running your business, so it makes sense that there should be an equally capable stock management app to run alongside and integrate seamlessly with it. For instance, when putting new items away in the warehouse you can receive the product against the purchase order and then see where it is going within the warehouse. Dynamics NAV uses business logic to suggest restocking, considering things external factors such as expiry dates. Tasklet can also track stock moved between different locations which is invaluable for companies operating on a larger scale.
