Warehouse Management System (WMS)

At its core, our WMS ensures that movement of stock is truly optimised, at minimum cost and with maximum accuracy, from intake to despatch.

How does the intake management process work?

Once a supplier appointment has been scheduled, at any point in time everyone across the business has visibility of the Stock in Progress status.

Merret Pro’s optional two stage intake process (checking and putaway) offers the ability to carry out intake checking, with integrated quality control measures for efficient handling of stock.

Merret Pro has options to begin picking items straight from the point of delivery, which means that stock can be sold on your shop floors on the same day.

Our integrated supplier management systems runs throughout the intake system, allowing for greater supplier monitoring. This control and capture of information is unique within Merret Pro’s WMS and integrates supplier performance measures across all aspects of delivery including quantity and quality. Integrated financial calculations also provide options for counter-charging as appropriate.

Optional tolerance thresholds can be set by buying and merchandising teams, setting guidelines for the warehouse staff during intake to improve accuracy and supplier control, meaning that stock discrepancies are also prevented.

How does the fulfilment and despatch process work?

Merret Pro’s WMS allows you to set up multiple warehouses, and as standard comes with three virtual warehouses for returns, damages, and charity.

Merret Pro’s WMS also provides Hand Held Terminal (HHT) and RF gun functionality that covers processes for all retailing channels.

This means that:

  • Pick calendars can be created for different stores, to optimise efficiency
  • Pick areas can be specified to include secure areas for valuable items
  • SKU picking and cross-docking is supported, which is essential to despatching stock quickly
  • Items are picked into cartons that are viewed individually, allowing for more efficient deliveries and the ability to merge cartons. This optimises the use of space, saving time and money
  • Omnichannel picking offers the flexibility to pick multiple orders at once with sortation options

How does the logistics process work?

Once picking/packing has been completed, Merret Pro offers options for in-house logistics or will interface to your chosen carrier, or delivery management system. Merret Pro is integrated with Metapack. Full tracking information is visible in real time, as soon as the product has left the warehouse.

Whilst Merret Pro offers a complete warehousing system, we understand that you may already have logistics partners, who use their own systems. To cover this, Merret Pro also integrates to a number of 3rd party WMS software providers.
