Our development team is known for their love of a challenge, and our customers choose WAERlinx because of its adaptability to their needs.
Take one of our most recent customers, Mishimoto, for example. In the process of scoping out their project, they have requested the ability to receive goods by packing list reference, thus enabling automated receipt processing for multiple items based on a supplier’s packing list or delivery note.
The second development request was to have pallet packing – the functionality to assemble shipping pallets by recording either the uniquely numbered cartons contained on the pallet and/or the loose (i.e. unpacked) items that are contained on the pallet.
Thirdly, they needed to have calculated weights of cartons and pallets. This way, there would be clear visibility of what had been placed onto each pallet, and fewer customer service issues of the ‘my product hasn’t been delivered’ type.
None of these has been requested by customers to date, but part of what makes WAERlinx unique is the fact that there is no ‘off the shelf’ version; it’s built to adapt, so these were all easily incorporated into the final solution.
For Mishimoto, the advantages are set to make a huge impact on efficiency in the warehouse:
