More reliable forecasting

Better labor productivity

Advanced analytics for decision-making

Key features of WMS development

To help businesses achieve their most ambitious goals, whether it is to enhance safety on site or accelerate the handling of articles, the bare minimum of features competitive warehouse software solutions include is:

Warehouse layout planning

For employees to navigate faster in premises with complex division into zones, have them clearly displayed with exhaustive designations of each zone.

Real-time streaming

The bigger the warehouse, the harder it is to capture every process. Streaming from security cameras is indispensable to control safety and employee productivity throughout the working day, for example, by monitoring them entering and leaving the workplace.

Barcode/RFID tag/QR-code scanning

Efficient inventory management in a warehouse goes hand in hand with tagging items with barcodes and their alternatives, scanning, and labeling them across batches, items, and pallets.

Inventory tracking

Real-time status highlighting the stage of handling the item is one of the basic warehouse management system’s features which is well complemented by assigning and scanning item codes.

Analytical reports generation

Know your numbers by having all data not only collected but also put together in clear and accessible reports breaking down each operational area of the warehouse, i.e., defining peak sales seasons and most profitable sales channel, and more.

Document processing and record-keeping

Automating company records is the key to preventing duplicate and conflicting data. Enjoy data accuracy and availability from an easily categorized catalog.

Financial management

Indispensable functionality for billing and invoicing as well as automated revenue and tax calculation, especially for mid-sized companies and enterprises managing a warehouse.

Picking lists creation

The process of picking items from a warehouse could be much faster if employees were getting maximum precise directions on the article placement, especially in larger area warehouses. Modern WMS allow putting together picking lists based on reception dates and bin location, offering employees the shortest possible way for the item to be picked up.

Backorder management

When unusual spikes of demand for certain products occur, distributors may offer backordered stocks. Businesses choose backorder in favor of preorder as it minimizes customer dissatisfaction by showing the effort to fulfill. Communicate with suppliers and create purchase orders with backorder management functionality.

Our services

Custom software
development

Creating custom warehouse management software from scratch. You along with Business Analyst determine the set of features to fulfill your needs and fit your budget.

Integration with third-party services

The software you are using is great for your tasks but there are several features is it lacking. Request integration with third-party software from us to have all functionality in one place.

Legacy software
modernization

The option for businesses whose custom software was implemented years ago and now has a lot to be desired. We’ll make your legacy relevant and competitive as for today, not as for the previous decade.

Feel the difference with warehouse management services from Anadea.

Warehouse software integrations

A warehouse that runs like clockwork needs the software to cover every possible aspect of warehouse operation. As you read this, perhaps you are already using some WMS applications. There’s no reason to worry about losing data from these applications when you switch to a custom system. Integrating third-party tools with your new software will keep all the data intact so it can be used further and always be considered.

Scanning devices

We tune barcode (QR-code, RFID tag) scanning devices to send data directly into your WMS exempting you from the need to transfer data manually from one system to another.

ERP software (SAP, NetSuite)

Enterprise resource planning and warehouse management systems work very well together, so there’s absolutely no reason to give up one in favor of another. While ERP captures all enterprise procedures, WMS focuses closely on one aspect, the warehouse. The two combined enable the utmost control over company resources.

SCM software (Ordoro, Fishbowl)

When integrated with a supply chain management system, warehouse management becomes one link in a long chain. WMS integration with supply chain monitoring software allows for analyzing warehouse activities in the remit of the entire supply chain.

eCommerce platforms (Shopify, Magento) and marketplaces (Amazon, eBay)

If you work with these or other major eCommerce platforms and marketplaces, you can manage orders on different platforms in one place and automate the stock availability data display on those platforms with ease.

Security system for safety monitoring

Modern warehouse security systems are cloud-based, high resolution, Computer Vision-powered, and are smarter than one can imagine. But what if you can watch footage from security cameras not in your web browser or a separate app, but right inside your warehouse management system?

Payroll module

HR management gets more complicated as the company grows and augments its staff. What a smaller company can do manually, larger ones need to automate. For example, the payroll module by NetSuite updates general ledger accounts in real time and calculates taxes in accordance with the country laws.

Accounting platform of choice (Xero, Zoho Books)

Integrate your WMS with the accounting software so that it provides not only inventory information but also financial insight. View and file invoices, make payments from WMS, and much more.

Delivery companies (UPS, FedEx)

After leaving the warehouse, the item is handed to the consumer—and you want to know it’s safe and sound. Integrate APIs of delivery companies which services you are using for order tracking and return management.

Use advanced technologies to disrupt warehouse management

Turn routine warehouse operations into a speedy and efficient flow with warehousing management software featuring the most innovative best practices like AI/ML, Computer Vision, and the Internet of Things.

Analyze large data sets with AI/ML

Forbes reports that 51% of the leaders in the logistics sector are already using big data analytics and AI to collect useful measurements and increase the efficiency of their processes. If you still think AI tools are oddly difficult and costly to build, that’s not 100% true anymore. Building an AI model to perform a specific task can be affordable and quickly pay off, as the insights AI helps obtain are essential for predicting future wages, stock movement forecasting, forecasting the demand for items based on consumers’ purchasing, and much more.

Get meaningful insights with IoT

Many warehouse-related operations have long been automated already, that’s the whole point of warehouse software solutions. However, IoT-enabled devices, such as RFID tags, beacons (radio signal transmitters), and wearables (to track employee individual results) bring automation to a different level of speed and precision. All equipment you want to engage in the IoT ecosystem will communicate to each other providing uninterrupted control over the warehouse, from counting production lots to managing the on-site temperature and humidity.

Take the most from Computer Vision

CV-equipped cameras for object detection, warehouse monitoring, and product quality control are an established standard for today’s warehouses. Machine vision cameras can shift the routine of warehouse workers by providing them with timely insights about storage fulfillment and automating item retrieval and packaging. Above that, Computer Vision in warehouses allows for detecting defective units right on continuous belts, shelves, or palettes so that none of them reaches an end-consumer.
