Warehousing

Keep control over your transit and long-term stored goods across a range of virtual warehouses with the ForwardOffice Warehouse Management module. Working closely with the Operations and Transport Modules, it can be used to handle stock management and inbound/outbound logistics – and can be integrated with other ForwardOffice modules to extend functionality even further.

Freight consignments are able managed using Transit Warehousing, which can be operated by your warehouse staff as stock passes through. The Stock Control option lets you manage inventory in long-term storage, even if it has no connection to current freight operations.

Supporting all the major barcoding standards, Warehouse Management works in conjunction with a range of scanners to keep track of stock changes and movements around the warehouse.

This package offers a centralised solution for controlling all of your inventory, including reporting and auto-charging.
