3 Reports Your Warehouse Managers Should Have on Their ERP Dashboard

Posted by Ashley Lemus on Mon, Aug 22, 2016 @ 10:04 AM

It's no secret that being a warehouse manager requires much skill as you have to have knowledge of what is coming in or going out at all times.  

That's why an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution that's easy to use and provides reports you might not even be aware you need will allow you to effectively manage your warehouse.

3-warehouse-erp-dashboards.jpg

So we're providing a list of 3 reports you might not even realize you need in order to run your warehouse in a more productive manner:

 

1. Orders due to ship today but not yet in the warehouse

It's easy breezy when orders are on hand; however, when orders are not on hand stress will certainly start to build.  Wouldn't a dashboard that identifies the items that are still needed be helpful?  What if the dashboard could also show where the orders were right at that very moment or when they were last reported?  You would know exactly who to call for a status update and remind that person that the item they are working on needs to be shipped that day.

2. PO receipts due, and which ones are urgent

How frustrating is it when the UPS driver leaves a large pile of boxes on the dock and they all look the same??  Wouldn't it be so amazing to have a system that would show you which purchase orders are due immediately, or at least within the next few days, that are urgently required for a job or customer shipment. 

3. Operational efficiency

It's not always easy measuring warehouse efficiency.  But it could be much more simple with an efficient ERP system that will allow you to measure your employees work against warehouse standards, such as unpacking and processing a PO receipt.

5 Warehouse Management Technology Trends Gaining Momentum in 2016

Posted by Kimberly Tucker on Thu, Feb 25, 2016 @ 05:06 PM

warehouse_management_technology_trends_2016.jpg

 

When it comes to managing your warehouse, if you want to stay competitive and improve profitability, you will need to evaluate and adopt crucial technology trends.

Take a look forward to the trends that are shaping the warehouse management industry.

#1: Digital mobility via Cloud
Mobility continues to impact the business landscape and businesses are moving their systems to the cloud in droves.

In 2016, there will be continued integration of mobile devices and business.
With business applications available via any mobile device, employees in every function will be able to collect, analyze, and report on information on any smartphone or handheld.

Large companies already accept mobile payments, but that capability will soon be expected across the board. New mobile technology in the form of wearables will also move into warehouse, sales and mobile field service.

On-premises applications are rapidly being replaced by cloud applications because cloud software offers efficiency and cost savings.

As a result, subscription models are becoming commonplace. This trend is strong in warehouse management with cloud applications for inventory management, mobile sales, and mobile field service.


#2: Increased Cybersecurity 
Increased connectivity means that security threat detection and mitigation are high priorities.

The unrelenting adoption of cloud, mobile, and social media have significantly increased the complexity of how corporations and individuals interact with and try to protect their devices, systems, data, personal information, and money. Self-protecting applications and behavior analytics stand to improve security.

 

#3: Big Data means Big Changes
Users are becoming increasingly global and consuming more data.

Big data analytics and the Internet of Things (I0T) will continue to impact how we do business. IoT is about interconnecting and creating intelligence from all the devices around us.

This game-changing technology will offer enormous cost savings and massive productivity enhancements in the future.

The sheer volume of data is staggering, but it offers a world of opportunities for businesses to better manage inventory, improve customer relationships, and enhance daily operations.


#4: System Integration
System integration across all applications continues to gain momentum.

Connectivity and big data further drive the need for all business systems, including warehouse management, to be operating on a common database.

Business application companies will create more partnerships to enable seamless transfers of information and a single point of access.


#5: Business Intelligence
People have an increased appetite for more advanced analytics to answer deeper questions.

Visual analytics will serve as a common language, empowering people to reach insights quickly, collaborate meaningfully, and build a community around data. Advanced analytics are for everybody, not just the analysts.

Business intelligence will continue to impact the management of inventory and the entire supply chain.

4 Cloud ERP Questions Manufacturers Should Ask

Posted by Kimberly Tucker on Tue, May 26, 2015 @ 11:35 AM

CloudThere are a number of players in the cloud game so consider the following questions when looking for the right cloud solution.

What is the Cloud?

As a professional, you’ve undoubtedly heard and read the buzz about cloud computing. "The cloud" is a term that gets thrown about frequently these days so let us start with a simple definition: The Cloud is a network of servers, some of which perform online services and some which allow storage of and access to data.

Technology companies with a heavy consumer focus are leading the charge in promoting cloud solutions and are battling vigorously for attention and dollars.

Manufacturers however have a different set of priorities than consumers who are primarily concerned with being able to access their music or photos at anytime from anywhere. Manufacturers have an even greater set of concerns that introduces regulatory compliance into the equation.

Highly regulated device manufacturers are focused on innovation, patient safety and operational efficiency but nothing is more important that complying with regulations. Consequently, the prospect of trusting the operation of your business to a cloud ERP solution requires much examiniation.

If you are considering making the move to the cloud, the secret to success is selecting a cloud ERP solution that is built for you; one that supports the unique security, regulatory and software validation requirements of your industry. 

Is The Cloud Secure?

Security can be a major source of anxiety when considering a cloud-based solution in the manufacturing. However, a cloud solution that is designed to meet the specific needs of a manufacturer can easily overcome these concerns. A cloud ERP provider needs to make security, privacy and high levels of information technology (IT) controls of paramount importance when designing a solution.

A viable cloud solution uses stringent infrastructure and operational security measures to protect the underlying network, servers and application, all while controlling access to sensitive corporate data.

Data centers must include state-of-the-art technical security measures, such as electronic or biometric access; up-to-date firewalls and malware protection; and physical security measures, such as perimeter fences and live monitoring. With these measures in place, information in a cloud solution optimized for the specific manufacturing industry you operate within is even more protected than in an on-premise server.

 

Is The Cloud Compliant?

A cloud-based ERP solution for a manufacturer must be offered in a regulatory compliant IT environment. It should be a robust, highly available solution with all the necessary standard operating procedures to meet the requirements of national regulatory authorities.

It is essential that the solution also supports computer software validation requirements. Many cloud offerings are based on multi-tenant cloud environments requiring frequent upgrades as the entire product is upgraded, often on a semiannual basis.

Deploying a cloud-based ERP solution as a dedicated, single instance provides a qualified IT infrastructure that will be the foundation for your software validation efforts. It will also insulate you from the constant cycle and expense of validation efforts resulting from upgrades, patches and functionality that have not been given a proper risk-based evaluation for their effects on your underlying business and quality processes.

 

Will My Business Benefit from the Cloud?

Many companies promote delivering cloud ERP solutions. Yet, few are solely focused on the needs global manufacturers. Cloud-based solutions that are delivered on a qualified infrastructure mitigate the variability often associated with on-premise deployments.

A cloud deployment delivers the financial benefit of moving from capital expenditures to operational expenditures, allowing device companies to be more capital efficient. They deliver predictable security, reliability, availability and expense to help minimize risk.

Cloud deployments are simpler and more rapidly deployed than typical on-premise solutions. Some, but not all, deliver the same globally-accessible, full-strength ERP and EQMS capabilities as their on-premise versions

 

Conclusion

When choosing a cloud-based ERP solution, manufacturers need to ask the right questions before making their selection - or let Klear Systems do a business process review for better insight. It is imperative that manufacturers select a Cloud ERP solution that is built exclusively for their industry and not the generic solution used for a bank, government agency or some other non-manufacturing entity.

They need to select the comprehensive solution that supports the unique security, regulatory and software validation requirements of the manufacturing industry.

Overall, manufacturers must select a solution that delivers predictable costs that are easy to budget and flexible. Only then can they feel confident making the move to the cloud.
