Connecting Manufacturing and Distribution Operations to ERP Financial Systems

award winning solutions

"By replacing our old WMS system with ASC's ASCTrac® WMS, we increased our receiving capacity by 80%, and increased our inventory accuracy to 99.99%."

Larry V. - ASC customer

Best of Breed: To ensure that you are fully connected to your supply chain, the ASCTrac® WMS system can complement your ERP financial system investment with a very powerful and very extensive warehouse management and manufacturing solution. ASC has developed certified interfaces for many different ERP systems for a seamless path between systems.

With our ERP interfaces, the financial people can utilize their familiar ERP screens and the operations people can work with information at the point of activity in the warehouse using their handheld wireless devices. All data is entered and verified only once (at the point of activity) and never needs to be re-keyed.

Real Time, 100% Accurate: In addition, it is "real time" information available to the entire enterprise with accuracy that can only be achieved with auto ID technology. This means trusted information, not re-keyed data.

Orchestration: Now, your accounting department can work in harmony with your warehouse - less effort, better accuracy.

Technology:

ASC has created interfaces since its start in 1989 to connect virtually any external system. From mainframe or legacy systems (IBM AS400's, IBM 3090, Unix, HP, etc.), to many different ERP products (including Microsoft Dynamics, Sage, Oracle, SAP, Macola, Quickbooks, etc.). We have successfully implemented solutions for many clients. Today's interfaces use XML services for real time "event driven" architecture. With our experience, and our API tool set for ASCTrac® interfacing, every system can be accommodated.

Warehouse Component:

Since ASCTrac ® WMS utilizes automatic identification bar code technology (or RFID technologies), in addition to wireless mobile devices, all warehouse information is accurate and real time. Instant verification occurs for all inventory transactions (such as receipts, picks, moves, physical counts, cycle counts, repacks, scraps, quality control holds and releases, parcel shipping, trailer shipping, etc.) at the point of activity. That means instant reconciliation if a picking error occurs, or verification of a purchase order, etc.

Moreover, with all of the management side of the warehouse at stake, (i.e., labor resources, location utilization, rapid picks, zone control, ABC logic, throughput capacities, burden costs, planning, ASN/EDI, etc.), the deployment of ASCTrac ® WMS simply makes good management sense.

Manufacturing Component:

In addition to our warehouse functions, ASCTrac ® WMS has a very extensive manufacturing solution. Our manufacturing execution system (MES) provides modules for Work Orders, Shop Floor (both internal and external), MRP Production Planning, Demand Forecasting, and various interfaces to manufacturing PLC's, automatic labeling systems, warehouse control systems, pick-to-light systems, carousel systems, etc. Picking of components for manufacturing is just as critical as it is for customer orders, and tracking of lot and serial numbers is mission critical.

Benefits of Using ASCTrac-to-Any-external-system Interface:

  • Compliments your Financial ERP investment with a true warehouse management system
  • Seamless integration with "data entered only once" concept (Order Entry drives the fulfillment)
  • Increases ability to automate and speed up the invoicing process (Order to Cash cycle)
  • Increases accuracy (which improves inventory and customer satisfaction)
  • Allows seamless warehouse multi-shipments per same order (may be called "backorders")
  • Utilize wireless real-time devices at the point of activity in the warehouse (to insure immediate inventory movements and validate data on the spot; eliminates batch-mode reconciliations)
  • Employ auto-ID technology for accuracy and faster performance with reduced labor costs
  • If the financial system goes down for some reason, i.e., backup procedures, the ASCTrac® system is still running the warehouse. ASCTrac® is designed for full 24/7/365 without any shutdowns. It will pick back up where it left off with the data synchronization once the financial ERP is back up.
  • Optionally, implement various manufacturing tracking solutions with special interfaces
  • Tested, proven, and uses a rapid deployment methodology
  • ROI - Return On Investment in months, not years
