Cadre’s advanced Warehouse Management System (WMS) unlocks unseen levels of efficiency and accuracy in your warehouse, turning receiving — a traditionally time-consuming and complex process — into a streamlined, error-free operation. Equipped with state-of-the-art features like real-time inventory updates, automated purchase order confirmation, and advanced barcode scanning, Cadre’s WMS ensures that every received item is immediately and accurately accounted for. By minimizing human error and reducing dead stock, this advanced system promises a transformative improvement in your bottom line.

Advanced Barcode Scanning

Our Warehouse Management System employs cutting-edge barcode scanning technology to expedite and simplify the receiving process. With the use of mobile RF scanners to scan product or vendor barcodes it provides accurate and quick item identification, reducing the reliance on manual data entry and minimizing the margin of error. The ripple effect is a streamlined receiving process, instantaneous inventory updates, and overall elevated warehouse efficiency.

Support for ASN & EDI

Our Warehouse Management System is designed to support Advanced Shipping Notice (ASN) and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), enabling the electronic processing of shipment data. This feature helps cut down on physical paperwork, reduces manual errors, and streamlines the entire receiving process in your warehouse.

Lot, Serial, Expiration, & Mfg. Tracking

In industries where traceability is critical, such as pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, or automotive, Cadre’s WMS offers robust support for lot and serial tracking. This powerful feature enhances visibility into the lineage of every product, tracking it from receiving to shipping. By ensuring compliance with industry-specific regulations and customer requirements, our WMS reduces the risk of non-compliance penalties and strengthens your brand’s reputation. This meticulous tracking capability is an indispensable tool in today’s regulatory environment, making your warehouse receiving process seamless and trustworthy.

Automated Purchase Order Confirmation

One of the key features of Cadre’s WMS is automated purchase order confirmation. By automating this critical process, it eliminates potential errors stemming from manual data entry and enhances operational efficiency. This seamless feature serves as a bridge between your purchasing and receiving departments (integrated with ERP software), ensuring real-time updates and robust communication, keeping you informed about your inventory status at all times.

Centralized Receiving Dashboard

Empowering warehouse managers with a comprehensive overview of operations is essential for efficient decision-making. Cadre’s WMS features a Centralized Receiving Dashboard that provides real-time visibility into all warehouse activities. This tool helps identify bottlenecks before they cause significant disruptions, track the progress of ongoing operations, and anticipate the need for resources. As a result, you can make informed decisions promptly, contributing to the continuous improvement and agility of your warehouse receiving process.

Scheduled Receiving Appointments

Cadre’s WMS brings a new level of organization to warehouse operations through its Scheduled Receiving Appointments feature. By enabling the scheduling of receiving appointments, our WMS minimizes dock congestion, one of the most common bottlenecks in warehouse operations. This means smoother operations, better utilization of resources, and reduced waiting times for deliveries. Ultimately, this feature ensures a more orderly, efficient, and cost-effective warehouse receiving process, allowing your warehouse team to focus on the most critical tasks and drive overall productivity.

Quality Control Checks

Quality control is an indispensable aspect of warehouse operations. Cadre’s WMS allows for the implementation of QC checks during the receiving process and track user defined reason codes, change disposition, etc. This ensures that incoming goods meet your quality standards, reducing the chance of customer dissatisfaction or costly returns.

Reporting, Analytics, & Alerts

In the era of data-driven decision-making, having access to actionable insights is essential. Cadre’s WMS provides Detailed Reporting & Analytics that delivers valuable insights into your warehouse operations. With this feature, you can identify trends, assess operational performance (KPI’s), and plan future warehouse strategies based on real, reliable data. By making information available at your fingertips, our WMS helps you drive continuous improvement in your warehouse receiving process.
