An Introduction to BassetPro Warehouse Management Solution (WMS)
SageData is based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
The warehouse variant of BassetPro is built on the same
chassis as BassetPro
shares many of the same features.
The warehouse variant is usually configured to operate as UIC or SKU based. UIC systems track each individual item (this specific computer). SKU based systems track items in bulk (500 work gloves). The system can accommodate both.
Typical WMS track the fundamental operations (Receive, Put-away, Pick and Ship), but also manage more specific tasks such as cross docking, inventory verification, movement within the warehouse, preparation of BOL (Bill of Lading) etc.
There is also frequently a requirement to link to external systems, for receipt of pick orders, or release of invoices.
What does BassetPro do?
BassetPro uses a variety of technologies to cover the tasks described above, including barcode technology for put-away and picking, and RFID, commonly used for inventory verification.
Who is SageData?
SageData are based in Ottawa, and have been supplying these systems to the Federal Government for more than 25 years. We have supplied nearly every Federal Government Department and Agency, and are currently providing material management services to track materials being removed and replaced on Parliament Hill.
How are these systems configured?
How would you
like them to be configured?
We have installations on our servers, on client networks, or standalone (in many cases for high level security). User interfaces can be configured to your exact requirements.
External interfaces permit information to be exchanged with a variety of backend systems, including SAP, Peoplesoft, and Quickbooks.
Once BassetPro is installed and operational, the receipt, deployment, audit and
equipment becomes extremely simple. Because asset tags with barcodes or RFID are used to
tracking activity or registering a move or disposal becomes easy, fast and accurate.
Reporting is comprehensive and fast. So managers can have a full accounting. You can know exactly what you have, exactly where it is, and exactly when it was last touched.
This variant of the product is intended for larger organizations. There are no material limits. The system can accommodate thousands of users, products, and daily transactions. The number of fields that can be managed is in excess of 100, and can be expanded if required. Reports are easily configured by the user. This system is built on baseline architecture that has already been used in major projects. The system can meet your identified immediate needs, but has the capacity to expand to accommodate new requirements as they arise.
Basset Pro Warehouse (WMS) can handle more than: 100 users, 1000 transactions per day,
1000 locations, 100,000 products. Technologies it can use include manual entry, barcode
RFID, and BLE. For further information contact SageData.
A project manager will assist you in confirming the appropriate configuration for your application.
If you are running a warehouse, BassetPro can offer ease of use, reliable operation, and a detailed historical record of all activity. It can accommodate today's known requirements, and can easily be expanded to meet tomorrow's unknown needs.
