RedPrairie Unveils Warehouse Management 2009

RedPrairie launches the latest release of its Warehouse Management system,
Warehouse Management release 2009 to help retailers meet the challenges of multi-channel retailing.

E-commerce retailers will be able to take advantage of the new releases'Optimised outbound repacking' tool, aimed at sites that send out one or two products to a large number of end customers. This packing module helps reduce packing time and enables integration with multiple carrier systems to provide labelling and carrier selection.

The upgraded system has improved functionality, including support for hanging garments. The system allows clothing to be hung and tracked on and off rails, within user designed zoning and dimension constraints such as weight, length and drop, leading to greater efficiency throughout the supply chain.

Rules to optimise repacking have been added, to manage how packages are combined and scheduled for delivery, reducing handling and carrier costs. The integration with RedPrairie's Duty Management application allows for more accurate tracking of duty to comply with regulations as well as enabling deferment of duty payments.

The enhanced system also includes de-catalogued stock management which helps e-commerce sites selling products with a high level of seasonal SKUs. These products require strategic replenishment management, and Warehouse Management 2009.1 provides an automated process that identifies inventory for these products and can automatically prepare orders to transfer such product out to pre-determined destinations.
