    Each EDI Alert contains a text description of the alert action; EDI Trace or NAV Native drill down allows the review of related transaction detail associated to each EDI Alert.

    Cross Reference Engine

    Often the most difficult part of the EDI translation process is the cross-referencing of incoming data to the business system data.

    Manage inventory in multiple locations that may represent a production plant, distribution centres, warehouses, show rooms, retail outlets and service cars.

    Bin Setup

    Easily set up and maintain your bins by defining both the layout of your warehouse and dimensions of your racks, columns, and shelves; set up and maintain your planning parameters by defining the limitations and characteristics of each bin.

    Internal Picks and Put-Aways

    Create pick and put-away orders for internal purposes, without using a source document (such as a purchase order or a sales order).

    For example, pick items for testing or put away production output.

    Warehouse Management Systems

    Manage items on a bin level. Receive and put away items in a bin; pick items from a bin according to a put-away template; and pick items based on the zone and bin ranking.

    Move items between bins using a report for optimizing the space usage and the picking process, or move items manually.

    Warehouse instruction documents are created for the pick and put-away process, which can be carried out for sales, purchases, transfers, returns, and production orders. Service orders are not included.

    DMS Features

    The Warehouse Mobile Data Module (WMDM) provides warehouse and production employees with full NAV access via barcode scanners and handheld computers.

    Accurately Manage Your Inventory

    Real-time, wireless access to all your data right on the shop floor.

    Easily Manage Item Tracking

    View, capture, and track serial numbers and lot information as product is consumed or shipped.

    Improved WMS Processes

    Pick directly to shipments (pick to ship) to eliminate redundant data management.

    Receipts are automatically generated if they do not exist when a PO is scanned or entered into the receiving screen.

    Put-aways are also auto-generated by scanning the received items.

    Empower Warehouse Staff

    The Warehouse Mobile Data Module integrates with a wide range of handheld devices to provide warehouse employees with access to all the NAV warehouse functions.

    The WMDM is built with the latest .Net technology to ensure a user-friendly data management interface on handheld devices.

    WMDM is ideal for organizations with central warehouses and external sales and service locations. Users can perform both warehouse and non-warehouse shipments and receipts with the same interface.

    The picking screen displays the entire pick on the handheld device and immediately alerts the user if an improper bin or barcode is scanned.

    As each item is scanned, the description, lot number, and serial number are displayed to verify that the items are properly labeled.

    Inventory Inquiries

    Perform inventory inquiries by item number or bin code by scanning either the item or bin.

    The Inventory Inquire screen makes it easy for warehouse personnel to identify inventory items by barcode, reducing the occurrence of misplaced or mislabelled items and allowing for spot-checks of inventory on a regular basis.

    Warehouse personnel will never have to return to the office to verify bin or item inventory, saving time and effort.
