WARES Master IndexΒΆ

  1. Warehouse Inventory Concepts.

    The WARES transaction model for tracking inventory is configured through product setup choices. Then documents create inventory transactions which can be viewed in multiple ways, enabling a warehouse to manage labor activities, provide location control, and support inventory viewing, reporting, and customer communication.

  2. Warehouse Company Setup.

    Selections on the WARES Company menu will setup master information for a warehouse company, its facilities, and the customer accounts and their products which are served by the warehouse.

  3. Inventory Transaction Documents.

    Data entry forms in WARES are modeled to match warehouse activities: receiving goods, shipping, rewarehousing, and so forth. At the same time, WARES produces documents based on the contractual requirements of a Warehouser’s Standard Terms and Conditions, the Non-negotiable Warehouse Receipt, and the Bill of Lading.

  4. Data Exchange Documentation.

    Data exchange with WARES partners may use several methods:

    • Customers may view inventory and enter orders through the web portal.
    • Transactional data encoded in JSON may be exchanged with WARES through standard Internet protocols or services like DropBox.
    • WARES supports X12 EDI formats for batch data transfers.

    WARES facilitates data exchange by using industry codes and terms throughout the program and adhering to recognized information technology standards.

  5. 3rd-Party Warehouse Services Billing.

    WARES provides a flexible third-party warehouse billing and invoicing solution based on individualized rates for receiving, accessorial, recurring, and other charges.

  6. Remote Directed Activity.

    Warehouse floor activities such as receiving and putaway, picking and shipping, rewarehousing, recouping, cycle counting, and other services can be performed using the Android-based mobile WARES app. This Google app store download is not only free, it also frees the warehouse from paper forms, building network wiring, and a host of technical problems which beset other warehouse management systems.

  7. WARES Codes Lists.

    WARES uses industry recognized codes for units of measure, contact functions, and a host of other purposes. Did we mention the codes? Industry standard codes as well as options specific to WARES are documented in this section.
