Sage Software has added a new Warehouse Automation module to its Sage MAS 500 ERP business management solution. With support for handheld bar-code scanners and radio-frequency (RF) communications from the core Sage MAS 500 ERP system, the Warehouse Automation module is designed to improve data entry accuracy. It simplifies data entry by automating routine warehouse tasks, including receipt of goods, warehouse transfers, bin transfers, sales returns, cycle counts, physical counts, and picking, packing and shipping.
The Warehouse Automation module seamlessly integrates with the Sage MAS 500 ERP system, which validates data collected by handheld scanners and maintains real-time updates to a single database. In the event that the Sage MAS 500 Server or RF connection is temporarily lost, users can work offline and information captured by the handheld device can be uploaded when the connection is re-established.
Also available with the release of Warehouse Automation is the Barcode LabelXpert Designer module for creating bar-code labels for inventory items, packaging cartons and containers, and warehouse racks, shelves and bins. A flexible labeling tool, LabelXpert Designer works with both laser and thermal printers. It includes label templates that can be modified, but also allows users to design custom templates. The LabelXpert Designer is available as a stand-alone module for distributors who need to comply with customer labeling mandates, but do not wish to automate their own warehouse.
