In Detail

Goods Receipt

With the ability to use pre-saved ASN (Advanced Shipping Note) information the goods in process allows you to view, update, and complete the receipt of inbound material.  Allowing you to manage inbound logistics, providing an overall view of all expected receipts and giving you a clear idea of the resources required for unloading, processing, and put away.

Once the inbound delivery arrives, products can be quickly and efficiently received into the warehouse and put away.  This streamlines the goods in process while minimising the number of resources required overall. 

Capturing key item attributes within the WMS, manually or with barcode scanners ensures that the quality of information provided is both timely and correct. 

Newlines WMS also offers various stock management, bonded and quarantine functions at time of receiving inbound material.  Allowing pallets to be quarantined or bonded guarantees stock accurancy and prevents any order allocation or picking, until quality or bonded processes are completed.


Static Movements;

are driven by personnel in the office, who predetermine which pallet, box, case or item should go into which storage locations.  The WMS transmits information that is displayed on the scanner’s screen showing item code, description and storage location for each item.  The warehouse personnel must scan the correct pallet, box, case or item barcodes and the new storage locations.  In this way, the WMS is updated on what items are in inventory, how much of each item is currently being stored and where that item is being stored in the warehouse.

Free Movements;

are driven by the warehouse personnel, during the put away process, the product bar codes are scanned and WMS transmits information that is displayed on the scanner’s screen showing item code, description and storage location for each item in a "software-determined sequence" that will minimize travel time during the put away process. When an item is placed in its correct shelf, slot, bin, or rack position, the user scans the bar code on the pallet, box, case or item and scans the bar code for that storage location. In this way, the WMS is updated on what items are in inventory, how much of each item is currently being stored and where that item is being stored in the warehouse.

Guided Put-Away;

Our more advanced WMS will know product and location information to be able to suggest a movement and location to store the items, 
based on the location size and max storage the WMS will choose the movements and locations for storing the pallets.


When it’s time to pick an order, no pick tickets are needed. 
WMS transmits the necessary information to the scanners used by the pick team. 
The picker will be given information based on each pick line including storage location, description, item code and quantity. 
As the picker scans the item in question, the WMS will check it’s the correct item. If it’s not, then the picker will be alerted and a potential mistake will be avoided.
All scans, good and bad are recorded and reported upon later as part of traceability.
By improving your pick rate to near 100%, customer satisfaction is improved, costly return postage, labour, and administrative costs are reduced and human errors are avoided.
The WMS can also determines the picking sequence of the items in the order to minimize picking time. 
Upon completing the pick, the WMS will then generate a packing list containing the item information ready for packing and despatch.


Once items have been picked, the barcode scanned and data updated into the WMS, the items may need to be packed ready for despatch.
For example, if a product needs to be put into jiffy bags or bubble wrapped.
The WMS will automatically creating the correct labels and notes for the inside and outside of the package.
Outside of the package the delivery address and the barcode(s) for the appropriate courier(s) will be affixed.


At time of despatch the order and pallet, box or case are scanned.  
Courier information can be entered for example courier, weight and dimensions, then the WMS will interface with the courier API to print collection/delivery labels.  
Once attached to the correct package, the item will be moved to an dispatch area of the warehouse, ready for the courier collection.
Stock is then released from the WMS and the relevant paperwork raised and printed.
The WMS can be set to update the customer as to the progress of the order and the expected delivery date and time using the courier tracking reference, giving them full visibility of their parcel, and in turn giving them more confidence in your business.

Stock Counting

Based on account-specific user-defined rules, the WMS software determines when counts are to be performed, as well as what items and location are to be counted. This information is transmitted to the scanning application displayed on the screens. Counting involves scanning the bar codes for each item and scanning the bar code for the location where it is stored. This process is much faster and more accurate than using paper reports for stock counting.  Stock counts are then confirmed or recounted via the WMS, which then updates the inventory data.

Stock Check

A simple method for checking pallet, box, case or storage locations.  By scanning the relevant barcode label WMS will return zone, location, item code, description and quantity information to the screen. The warehouse personal can then visually check this information and take the appropriate actions, this may include quarantining the pallet, box or case until further investigation can take place.
Our Scanning systems can operate in two modes (Batch or WIFI) Batch Mode Can be used when a WIFI environment is not suitable or wanted, however due to the scanners being docked into a base station for the system to be updated this makes real time scanning impossible, whereas a WIFI based system can respond to data collected by additional scanners and PC Input.


All the data in your WMS are readily available, with predefined reports, you can quickly see stock levels for items, available locations, item movements and much more. Picking and stock errors can be highlighted and alerted to the operation.
