WAREHOUSE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (iWIN WMS)
WebConcepts’ Warehouse Management application, iWIN WMS, is a suite of tools for managing the flow of merchandise through Foreign Trade Zone warehouses while providing full visibility to all inventory status changes, inventory movements and location changes. Designed to meet the needs of small to medium sized FTZ organizations, the system combines access to Broker-managed Customs integrated data with WMS capabilities in a single web-based package that can interface with existing ERP and 3PL systems or can operate as a stand-alone WMS for FTZ operations.
The system maintains automated lot control and up-to-date status of all goods: tracking planned arrivals, receipts, aging, put-away locations, pick assignments, shipment orders, on-hand and available-to-promise. Goods which can be sold in the US and those which cannot are clearly distinguished within the system. Lots not designated for domestic sale are automatically quarantined to ensure that they cannot be shipped except to a foreign destination or another FTZ bonded warehouse within the US.
iWIN WMS provides extensive, specialized reporting to support FTZ Warehouse requirements as well as user-defined real-time reporting for all processing from planned arrivals to outbound shipments. All historical data transactions are maintained in an OLAP cube for convenient ad hoc analysis and reporting.
