Receive Goods More Accurately and Efficiently

As a warehouse manager, you know inventory accuracy begins at the receiving dock with efficient, optimized, and validated receiving operations. Receiving purchase order items, Advance Ship Notices (ASN's), warehouse transfer orders, manufacturing orders, release numbers, are all critical steps in your supply chain.

Information about all items received at your dock should be validated and updated in real time so that data is instantly available to all other areas of your business, Additionally, all workflow tasks must be immediately optimized.

The ASCTrac ® WMS receiving and putaway module solves these challenges and sets the stage for your warehouse efficiency and accuracy at the point of receiving. ASCTrac ® utilizes auto-identification processes, real-time wireless mobile devices, and provides directed workflow with built-in user-configurable warehouse optimization processes.
