The QC IMS (Inventory Management System) uses state-of-the-art technology to enhance the accuracy and efficiency of warehouse operations and data integrity. QC IMS manages all of your item numbers and warehouse locations. The major inventory events which QC IMS encompasses include bar code label printing, receiving, put-away, cycle counting, picking, and replenishment.
The ASN allows you to receive indication of detailed product shipment from vendors and manufacturers well in advance of delivery. It enables the sender to describe the contents and configuration of a shipment in various levels of detail.
The receiving function lets you efficiently receive product into the warehouse and stage it for put-away utilizing RF and other devices. QC IMS™ is adaptable to handle both planned and blind receiving.
Our storage and put-away logic is easily configurable so you can customize the software to accommodate your business needs. One of the many configurations allows you to store inventory by product, type, class, or SKU.
The replenishment engine continuously monitors inventory levels of active pick locations and automatically generates replenishment tasks based on a minimum quantity for each item. Replenishment tasks may also be generated manually in anticipation of increased activity for an item.
QC IMS™ provides you with an activity log of all inventory transfers in the warehouse. Our software tracks the movement of product in real-time, thereby providing you with an accurate account of inventory levels in all locations.
QC IMS™ lets you use multiple methods of counting to ensure inventory accuracy. It provides full reconciliation and discrepancy reports, as well as the capability to track all cycle count history.
When you perform a physical inventory, QC IMS™ creates and manages physical inventory tasks for the entire warehouse. This auditing ensures inventory data accuracy.
Inventory Maintenance allows you to manage your warehouse according to your business rules. Hand-held data collection devices are utilized to control inventory activities. It also allows you to manually change the inventory count to reflect the actual SKU count.
QC IMS™ provides powerful and dynamic reporting solutions that enable you to easily create customizable printed documents and reports. It reduces the time needed to develop professional looking documents such as packout documents, production reports, inventory reports and shipping documents.
The Label Manager within QC IMS™ enables users to produce labels for locations, items, and shipping. Labels may be printed manually or on-demand and applied utilizing various methods including automated and inline print and apply technology.
