Dangerous goods
Greater visibility and management of hazardous materials, and creation of material safety data sheets (MSDS) and transport emergency cards (TREM) for many legislations including EU and the US.

Warehouse location management
Automate the most efficient use of warehouse space. Proactive put away recommendations speed up picking and fulfilment. Integrated end-to-end processes enable demand to be monitored and efficient handling of inventory such as cross-docking. RF and barcode functionality and a graphical planning interface drive efficiency on the warehouse floor.

Multi-distribution center
Gain global inventory visibility at local distribution levels across all the businesses, or group companies’ warehouses, with the ability to transact directly with them. Supporting any combination of central and local warehousing to fit the most efficient operating model.

Finite planning
Address bottlenecks for reduced cost and greater revenues by automatically checking for restrictions in delivery dates, rescheduling to avoid overloads and giving priority to most valuable customers.
