Savant WMS Modules
Savant provides a variety of WMS modules designed to enhance your supply chain operations.
Savant developed a modular design so that customers could choose only the functionality that they needed today with the option of adding WMS modules as their business evolved into the future. Savant’s ancillary WMS modules integrate into Savant’s core products enhancing your company’s operations.
Shipping ManifestSavant Shipping Manifest utilizes the same user interface and foundation as Savant’s Warehouse Management System and can function as either a standalone system or a part of the WMS capitalizing on its powerful system architecture. This unique platform provides our partners and customers an unprecedented single yet integrated solution for the mid-market. Savant’s Rest API tools enable you to exchange information seamlessly with your other key business applications.
Critical to your daily operations, Savant’s Shipping Manifest module enables users to achieve new levels of shipping automation through a solution that is easy to use, efficient and cost-effective. When coupled with Savant WMS you give your users a single User Interface to use from Receiving to outbound Shipping, all on a single platform with one solution provider not 2+.
Box BuildThe Box Build module takes your shipping requirements to the next level. This module verifies products that have been picked for an order and tracks the shipping carton that each product is placed. Distribution companies that pick in totes and place product in shipping cartons or containers will find this module to be invaluable to their operations.
The module also incorporates a unique box building algorithm that helps the packer select the appropriate sized box or boxes for shipping. Product dimensions are entered in the inventory screen. The box build algorithm eliminates certain sized boxes based on the dimensions of the products picked. The box building algorithm can be used prior to shipping to facilitate picking into the shipping container saving yet another step in the shipping process.
Container TrackingThe Container Tracking module works with the Receiving module to provide intransit information for containers arriving from overseas. It allows the purchasing department to group lines from various PO’s into containers based on information from the shipping entity. The warehouse receiving crew can then receive the goods from the container as a single unit, rather than having to split up the goods manually into multiple receipts by PO. Another feature is the ability to track the vessel, voyage, and various dates associated with the movement of the container from the time it ships to the time it is returned to the harbor as empty.
DashboardsThe Dashboard provides executives, warehouse managers and staff with a real-time, graphical view of their warehouse operations. With the Savant Dashboard, managers can quickly identify and resolve problems that are causing operational bottlenecks. The Dashboard can display real time snapshots of daily activities and up to 3 gauges and 2 graphs per screen.
Kitting/WIPThe Kitting/WIP module provides the ability to pick raw materials needed for Manufacturing Work Orders or components for Kit Assembly Orders. Additionally, it allows for receipt of Finished Goods for the Work Order or Assembly Order. Over-picking of parts is allowed, if needed, in order for warehouse workers to move product in an efficient manner. With this module it is possible to know which lot numbers of raw materials were consumed in the manufacture of the finished item which can be helpful for proper compliance track and traceability. Ability to create scrap transactions is also part of this module, as well as the return to stock of unused over-picked raw materials. Finally, an option is provided to scan specific component parts at various routing steps within the manufacturing process and to capture manufacturing time as well as quality control at each step.
Labor ManagementThe Labor Management module captures information about each worker, work area, and warehouse, and provides reports showing the productivity for the day as a percent of standard. This information enables managers/supervisors to identify low performing individuals and work areas so that their performance can be improved or the standard revised due to some previously unidentified problem. Combining this with other measures, such as accuracy and quality, will help provide a better overall picture of the warehouse performance.
Lot/Serial TrackingCritical to many of today’s quality inventory control standards is the ability to accurately record and track lot and serial codes. The Savant Lot & Serial Tracking module tracks both lot and serial numbered products from manufacturing or receipt through shipping. The module provides the necessary foundation for quality control, product recalls, product security, warranty tracking, and product maintenance.
PackingThe Packing module provides the most streamlined process of shipping parcels in the industry. Tasks are easily accomplished using our state-of-the-art, browser based, single platform solution. Savant Pack module gives warehouse staff a quick and easy way to print packing slips and box labels, rate shop multiple carriers, create carrier compliant labels and print required carrier documentation.
RMAThe Savant RMA module allows the warehouse to receive and track returned products. Products can be dispositioned by the warehouse operator so that they can be inspected and then either moved back into good inventory, or adjusted out if damaged. Returned product can be put on hold, and/or received into specific bin locations separate from other receipts. Workflows can be created to control the types of information that is captured on a return, similar to the receiving workflow for purchase orders.
ASNChecking in goods or otherwise validating shipments can be such a hassle, an exercise that can be very time-consuming, more so without the necessary tools in place. However, with ASNs, the process can take relatively less time, particularly when the vendor and the customer are known to have trusted relationships. Of course, trust hardly comes by cheaply, a reason vendors are encouraged to hold an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) status. The coupling of these two elements consequently offers better or smoother transactions, precisely affording high-level assurance that in-transit deliveries are correct and thus no need to check shipment once received. A quick barcode scan alternatively does the magic.
Having an ASN module allows us to expand into any market, especially with today’s supply chain demands. Everyone is scrambling right now so having a complete service offering to meet these challenges is crucial and what sets us apart.
