Advanced Warehouse Management in SAP Business One

Advanced Warehouse Management in SAP Business One

CompuTec WMS is an application that allows the creation of CompuTec ProcessForce and SAP Business One inventory movement documents using a handheld device connected to your SAP Business One database. SAP Business One and CompuTec ProcessForce located in it is a combination that covers all of a production company’s needs. However operating it directly from a warehouse while working with inventory may be difficult. That is where CompuTec WMS comes in. Using it you can manage the recording of inventory movements directly from any storehouse. The whole document creation process is performed in just a few steps in which data required for a document is being assembled. Choosing the desired value (either by scanning a barcode, or by picking from a list) assigns it to the document being created and links automatically to the next list – until the final step in which you confirm creation of the document, using predefine workflow.

 The application is under constant development based on internal consultations and customer feedback, which results in new functions being added to the application frequently. It is also extremely flexible due to a broad range of custom configuration options. It can be adjusted to suit specific client’s needs: from companies that passes tones of gravel through its warehouse everyday, to the ones that needs a specific information on each and every stone in stock.
