Why GraniteWMS

Granite Warehouse Management System (WMS) recognises the requirement for a simple barcode based warehouse management system that integrates seamlessly with PASTEL Evolution and Sage 300 ERP (formerly Sage ERP Accpac) and expands on and exposes warehouse operations and processes of the ERP. Granite WMS helps companies manage their warehouses  through a lean barcode driven warehouse execution and management system.

In a nutshell

Most warehouse management systems cost millions. These systems have their place in corporate distribution centers and huge warehouses. However, in countless cases, the wealth of  functionality available in these systems just goes to waste as few companies are sophisticated enough to utilise it. Our reasoning –why pay for stuff you will never need. Granite is sized to meet the majority of standard warehouse requirements. It does not suffer from functional bloat.


 

Barcoding at its core

The Granite system is developed by a team that specialized in barcode systems. It has scanning processes at its core, ensuring that each user interaction is simple, efficient and embraces scanning before typing.


 

Functional fit

Granite helps companies manage their warehouses. We do not want to impose restrictive business rules on your operators and we certainly do not want to reduce your ability to deliver goods rapidly and effectively from your warehouse. The resulting product is a lean, barcode driven warehouse execution and management system that can be implemented rapidly and does not cost more than a safe family car.


 

Ease of use

A system is only as good as the ability of the users to use it. We have all heard the saying – Garbage In, Garbage Out. Granite is designed with this in mind. We fully appreciate the low literacy levels and lack of education that our customers are faced with and the result is that Granite is designed to be easy to use and also easy to train.    
 

Identification labelling

The essence of a warehouse implementation is accurate identification.  It immediately provides a return in accuracy and discipline.  Granite embraces this fully. The leading barcode labelling software, BARTENDER from Seagull Scientific, is included in the GRANITE package.  This allows one to customize the label layout for each site,.

 

The Cradle project team will recommend the labelling technology and consumables and our factory can manufacture these to specification. While still expensive, RFID is available and can be implemented together with a Granite project. Our choice of label printer is dependent on the site specifics and environment; however, we tend to favour printers from ZEBRA


 

Uses Mobile RF Scanning

A WMS system delivers benefit from live, accurate data.  It is proven that taking the data capture to the physical work and items improves the accuracy of the process and the speed of the process.  This is done by using RF (WIFI) based mobile computers with integrated barcode scanning.  

We also implement the warehouse Wireless LAN using MOTOROLA or CISCO industrial WIFI
