Maximise storage utilisation

To achieve warehouse storage optimisation, the sequence of actions should run like a well-oiled machine right from the outset of parts or goods being ordered for delivered into the warehouse to the moment they leave for delivery.

At the beginning of this sequence, our solutions consider how to optimise your output by linking finance and operations, then strategically assisting the goods-in and put-away process.

We also consider warehouse user & end-customer behaviour, utilising your racking space to best lay away products based on how likely to be picked they are. By placing popular picking items in an easily accessible place, the time spent travelling between picks will be reduced; therefore saving time and increasing picking efficiency.

In fact, our customers on average report a 25% increase in warehouse optimisation - so we are confident our solutions improve processes, across a spectrum of industries and organisations of all different sizes and scales.

Reduce stock wastage and damage

Warehouses and distribution centres often come under fire for the large amount of waste that they produce. Whilst most of this waste is recyclable and cannot be helped such as waste produced through packaging, a significant problem for warehouses, wholesalers and distributors is becoming more eco-friendly is the disposal of spoilt or unsold stock.

In particular, it is common to see a large amount of out of date stock disregarded as waste, mostly due to poor stock management. Within our solution we focus on best before dates and sell-buy date management to reduce stock wastage, directing pickers to the stock with the soonest expiry date.

Finally damaged stock. It's a fact of life that some inventory will be damaged, but limiting this is crucial. A pragmatic way to overcome this is defined pick routes and the types of pick operation available - innware offers 4 different pick operations: pallet/bulk, consolidated, wave & piece. The trade off for damage limitation, doesn't necessarily have to be efficency, by simply finding a smarter way to operate.

Courier integration

There is often lots of room for improvement for efficiency in warehouses and distribution centres, and this includes the sharing of information. In particular with your chosen courier service or even with your own distribution channel.

We work to capture and electronically pass information from your warehouse operation in a simplified, streamlined process through to your customer fulfilment - which reduces errors, duplication and saves time for you and your partners.
