PathGuide Technologies, which provides warehouse management systems for wholesale and industrial distributors, announces the release of its Latitude version 9.0 Warehouse Management System (WMS). Latitude 9.0 is a software suite that automates warehousing and distribution to provide real-time online information about inventory. Latitude automates all operations from receiving and order picking, to manifesting and truck route/stop management. It integrates seamlessly with major ERP business systems such as Microsoft Dynamics, Activant, J.D. Edwards, and Oracle.
This new version of Latitude features new Incident Tracking and Performance Metrics modules, which increase visibility into warehouse operations and enable businesses to more efficiently track warehouse productivity and accuracy.
The new Latitude Warehouse Metrics module enables users to easily create reports and charts on demand to gain insight into warehouse and employee productivity. The module tracks employee and warehouse performance in real time, allowing users to compare performance of employee groups (morning pickers, evening pickers, receiving, etc.) and operational organizations (east division, west division, etc.). An enhanced configuration wizard allows for simplified data entry and the creation of template reports and charts, while a dashboard view that automatically updates in real time provides users with a single location to access all of their most critical data.
The Incident Tracking module is available as an option on Latitude 9.0. It effectively manages and maintains lists of warehouse issues, ensuring incidents are correctly and quickly resolved. Users can create and track incidents such as receiving discrepancies, incorrect shipments, cycle count irregularities, inventory errors, and customer and vendor problems. With incident tracking, issues are assigned a priority level (low, medium, and high), a user-assigned category, a user-assigned class (financial impact estimate), and an owner. Each incident includes a central repository for related information where notes can be added, and documents and images attached. Ongoing e-mail alerts and a full audit history of actions taken keep warehouse managers up to date on the status of incidents.
