HighJump, a global provider of supply chain management software, announced that the AccellosOne warehouse management system (WMS) now features expanded e-commerce functionality to help customers increase supply chain efficiency and accuracy.
The fast growth of online retail has brought many operational challenges for traditional retailers and wholesale distributors. Outbound order processes cannot scale to meet order volumes of direct-to-consumer shipments; unpredictable demand creates bottlenecks in the warehouse; customer-specific packing slips can be a logistical nightmare.
To address these and other hurdles to effectively managing e-fulfillment operations, the AccellosOne WMS now includes enhanced e-fulfillment order processing functionality to streamline high-volume Internet retail operations:
•Reduce picker travel time with a process for wave-planning that groups batch picks by item proximity.
•Reduce order preparation time with 100% paper-free picking, while maintaining full item visibility throughout the order lifecycle.
•Optionally pre-define packing stations based on variables such as pack size or order profile.
•If the desired process includes end-of-line packing slip creation after the order is picked, print latency is eliminated using proprietary “print and store” technology.
•Elimination of PCs during packing means stations can be created on-the-fly to meet demand or workload can be dynamically redistributed. This is accomplished through behind-the-scenes parcel shipping and ship confirmation using mobile devices.
•Seamlessly integrate pick walls, carousels, conveyors, and pick to light systems into workflow.
The component architecture of HighJump’s solutions allows distributors and Internet retailers the flexibility to choose the functionality they need to scale their business.
