Sage 500 ERP provides industry leading inventory and warehouse management capabilities for wholesale distributors, manufacturers, and other companies that buy, stock, sell, or manufacture products. The Warehouse Management module is an extension of the Inventory Management and Inventory Replenishment modules providing advanced features, including bin tracking, three-step inventory transfers, and both wave and zone picking.
Three-step inventory transfers utilize in-transit warehouses and replenishment logic to drive demand backward to source warehouses while tracking supplies as they move from warehouse to warehouse within the internal supply chain.
Bins are used for much more than identifying inventory locations. Bins are embedded within Sage 500 ERP to manage stock movement and inventory transactions such as receiving, picking, physical inventory counting, and even manufacturing material issues and finished goods processing. Random, fixed, temporary, and staging bins provide ample flexibility for virtually any size company regardless of warehouse configuration.
It is not efficient to pick one single order at a time in larger warehouse environments. Pickers would be running up and down aisles all day just to pick a few orders. Consequently, distributors and manufacturers with larger warehouses and more sophisticated distribution centers typically use zone or wave picking methods, which allow pickers to concentrate on items within a particular area of the warehouse. These picking methods minimize employee movement while dramatically increasing the number of orders that can be picked during each shift.
