Warehouse Management

ScanMan Core Warehouse Management Software

If you are managing your warehouse using paper based "cardex" systems or data capture into a clumsy ERP system, or battling with a warehouse management system that doesn't quite do what you want it to, then consider this affordable software.

ScanMan allows you to customise the software around your main warehouse processes :

1) Goods receiving and product identification

2) Tracebility to source and GR date 

3) Flexible put-away strategy

4) Stock Reports: detailed and summary stock holdings

5) shelf life reports

6) more efficient and more accurate stock take processes

7) Picking and delivery control

 

 

ScanMan software is designed to work alongside your existing ERP system. Historically, ERP systems have done a mediocre job in warehouse management, being either too rigid or too simplistic in their inventory control. Their user interfaces are often clumsy and frustrating to the users.
Scanman is designed to fill the gap by working alongside your ERP system. Receiving and providing information to your ERP system only when needed, and yet working autonomously.

The software is ideally suited to situations where FIFO (first in first out) principles are to be followed, but not rigidly enforced.

Scanman is not dependant on other ERP systems, but can optionally integrate to your ERP system if required.

ScanMan uses wireless pocket pc type barcode scanners, key board wedge type scanners, as well as data storage scanners. However, scanners are optional and you can simply use a normal PC and keyboard if you want.

The strong points of scanman are:

• Simplicity - On the surface scanman looks like a simple program to operate - and it is! But a lot of the work is done behind the scenes using powerful software algorithms. We like to call the user-interface "intuitive" rather than simple.
• Price - Scanman is affordable,costing less than half of comparable WM software systems.
• Stock take (Physical Inventory) - The stock take feature of scanman is its big selling point. Our stock take software is guaranteed to reduce your stock take time from a few days to a few hours.

Scanman is simple: Capture your goods after receiving them into your ERP system (we can extract the data automatically from your SQL database), scanman automatically prints a label with a barcode. You scan the barcode and bin location when you put it away.

If you move the box or pick from it, scan it and tell scanman about your adjustments.

If you issue the box out of the warehouse, tell scanman and the box is archived.

It's that simple! Scanman operates quickly, so with these operations you are saving many man-hours.

Stock Take/Physical Inventory: Developed over 7 years in the motor industry, our stock take system has been refined over time with many features and developments added by the software developers actually being involved in the stock take process. It offers double count with comparison, wireless scanner, PC data capture, file upload as well as memory scanner integration so you can have multiple teams working on your various warehouse's stock take even if they dont have wireless coverage.

The financial report available during stock take allows additional effort to be allocated to finding high value items.

ScanMan offers powerful reports for analysing the progress and accuracy of your stock-take like: "Bins not touched" report, "Warehouse Value" report, "Warehouse Value Exception Report" and "Still to scan report".

Audit Log: Scanman also provides tracebility, so everybody needs to log in the system (automatic logon for domain users, user name/password loging for scanner users). If somebody changes something , scanman records the history of every box.

Security: ScanMan provides authorisations: every user can be assigned permissions to perform certain operations. This means that your data is more secure.

GPS Ready: ScanMan can display your assets and inventory in Google Maps with the click of a button:

Step 1: Search for items (assets or inventory items) that you want to view

Step 2: Click "Export To Google Earth"

Step 3: View data in Google Earth, you can save and email the KML file from within Google Earth
