Efficient warehouse operations ensure the low cost of storage, in-time delivery, optimized warehouse space, and good relationship with clients.
A warehouse management system (WMS) is a software solution that helps to manage all logistic processes, get accurate analytics, and navigate the process in real-time. Advanced software solutions are based on implementing AI and data technologies. DevOps process on WMS design depends on custom business goals, but in most cases, the software will help make a strategic design, operate the process from the UX dashboard, and collect all the information on warehouse logistics in one space.
Warehouse logistics solutions give the possibility to track the inventory in real-time and manage the supply chain. Next, we will point out the most commonly used keys for logistic warehousing optimization.
Cprime warehouse and logistic software design expertise are based on creating efficient solutions for well-known businesses. One of the latest successful cases was creating a BI warehouse managing app with Acinta Intelligence Suite. The challenge for this project was to develop a set of app for data analysis from the end user’s warehouse database. This software must advise businesses to analyze commercial context accurately. Cprime was Acinta Intelligence Suite’s development partner in this case, as Acinta does not have an in-house development department.
To create the software that will provide accurate data for centralized business reporting (for example, Key Performance Indicators or reports), we built a system with four main applications. It combines a data shop, modeler, enterprise manager, and an Acinta server. The system allows users to get real-time data, explore trends, and business opportunities.
The system has a few features that ensure efficient application for business processes. First of all, data shop can be a flexible tool for extracting information that can help to improve business decisions. A modeler is a user-friendly tool that allows the creation of a multidimensional model of warehouse data. This system also integrates with Microsoft Dynamics C5, Microsoft Dynamics Navision, Microsoft Dynamics Axapta, Visma Business, Magento. Moreover, Acinta Service allows users to publish information online and send accurate reports.
To sum up, this use case illustrates how the combination of best logistic software solutions became an efficient tool in business analytics.
