A powerful ERP & MetaADCS Advanced Warehouse Management System

Unlike most Automated Data Capture System (ADCS) that have evolved from technology integrators with often little or no industry expertise, MetaOption MetaADCS was developed by supply chain professionals who have worked with global distribution and manufacturing companies in the design and implementation of small business warehouse management system automation.

MetaOption MetaADCS decreases manual operations, eliminates paperwork and reduces operational costs by increasing the accuracy and speed of warehouse functions like receiving, putaway, inventory counts, inventory moves, picking and shipping. By improving operational efficiencies, MetaOption MetaADCS enables your organization to gain a real competitive advantage.

For small and mid-market companies cost and time are serious concerns when implementing a new automated solution. MetaOption MetaADCS has multiple pricing models to fit every budget. It is also easy to install, easy to configure and easy to use. Your warehouse staff will be up and running quickly with minimal disruption to your daily operations.

MetaADCS FEATURES

YOU NEED

  • Bin: Organize your warehouse by assigning items to bins, the smallest unit in the warehouse logical structure. Bin assignment is done as according to the item journals or directly to the document lines (does not apply to order lines).
  • Cycle Counting: Manage cycle counting, a basic method of verifying inventory record data used to maintain and increase inventory accuracy. Set up cycle counting on the item or SKU level.
  • License Plating: Easily track entire pallets, boxes, or containers of mixed items including mixed lot/serial numbers.
  • Internal Picks and Put-aways: Create picks and put-away orders for internal purposes, without using a source document (such as a purchase order or sales order). For example, pick items for testing or put away production output.
  • Put Away: Enable warehouse workers to create a put away from the released order. Put Away is managed from a separate user interface when receiving items in an order-by-order environment.
  • Pick: Enable warehouse workers to create a pick from the released order. Pick is managed from a separate user interface when shipping items in an order-by-order environment.
  • Stock-Keeping Units: Manage stock-keeping units (SKUs). Identical items with the same item number can be stored in different locations and managed individually at each location. Add cost prices, replenishment, manufacturing information, and so on, based on the location.
  • Warehouse Receipt: Enable warehouse workers to create a put-away from the receipt. Warehouse Receipt is managed from a separate user interface when receiving items in a multi-order environment.
  • Warehouse Shipping: Enable warehouse workers to create a pick for the shipment. Warehouse Shipment is managed from a separate user interface when shipping items in a multi-order environment.
  • Multiple Locations: Manage your inventory across production plants, distribution centers, warehouses, show rooms, etc. including in-transit locations.
2D-Barcode-QR-Code-Scanning

2D Barcode and QR Code Scanning

2D barcodes are being adopted very quickly in a wide range of industries for their compact size and data capacity. Generate 2D barcodes directly from Dynamics NAV/Business Central that include all information relevant to a scan, such as an item number, lot number, expiration date, UOM, or even quantity.

The smaller barcode size means it can be applied to smaller items, or made large enough to be scanned from a distance while still fitting on a small label. The number of distinct pieces of data stored in the barcode can reduce the number of scans required to execute an action. For example, a single scan could bring in an item number, lot number, and weight.

In addition to 2D codes, flexible user-configured rules enable the system to interpret any barcode format and symbology you can imagine, including UPC/GS1, GTIN, custom formats, etc.

Here are few other functionalities:

  • Print and scan barcodes
  • Ship, receive, and count inventory
  • Handle order management
  • Track parts across multiple locations

Get Access for Real-Time Tracking and Traceability

MetaOption MetaADCS Warehouse Management System provides end-to-end inventory tracking and visibility. All material is identified with a unique License Plate (LP) allowing the system to track material with a high level of precision. Events are logged giving you access to detailed, historical data, and real-time visibility of all warehouse activities.

Capture lot and serial numbers for any transaction

For industries where lot tracking is required, MetaADCS provides robust functionality to help streamline the process. Lot and serial numbers can be recorded and tracked directly on the handheld device. In addition to tracking, MetaADCS provides reports to help you comply with regulatory requirements.

License Plate Management

Easily track entire pallets, boxes, or containers of mixed items including mixed lot/serial numbers.

License Plate Management (License Plating) from MetaADCS provides users with the ability to track and generate labels to reference entire pallets, boxes, crates, or containers that contain mixed items or mixed lot/serial numbers.

The License Plates barcodes are easily printed directly from handheld devices and can be used for picking, receiving, movements, consumption, and shipping.

  • Overcome supply chain challenges, speed up warehouse/shop floor transactions, reduce errors and more.
  • Distinguish each product carton or item with a unique license plate number (LPN) in a warehouse setting.
  • Identify goods in transactions such as receiving, moving, production or shipping.
  • Reduce the number of scans necessary to enter a transaction.

Moving product through your warehouse requires abundance of scanning but through the magic of License Plating from MetaOption MetaADCS, you can move product through with less scanning while helping to address errors related to manual input and data integrity. Put simply, License Plating allows for efficient transactions which increase your overall warehouse operation efficiency.

Container Management

Containers are used throughout the inbound and outbound processes to consolidate orders. A unique identifier is assigned to each container and as orders are processed, data is captured and linked to that unique number. All information pertaining to the contents and movements of the order are captured and recorded. The results are accurate orders, to one or many orders which allows for accurate order preparation, error-proofing, and order tracking throughout the inbound and outbound processes.

Receiving, Staging, QA, Put Away

Barcode incoming inventory only when it makes sense.

If you are barcode labeling everything that comes in the door, chances are high that our system can optimize labeling.

  • We support multiple barcodes per item and receivers can add new incoming manufacturer barcodes while receiving from a mobile device.
  • We support receiving in any UOM associated with an item while maintaining your base stocking unit.
  • We support barcode printing from our catalog of labels supplied by Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) for both thermal or laser printers.
  • Receive without scanning is an option that you can turn on or off.
  • Leverage Receiving license plates for reducing barcode label printing and easy put Away to inventory locations.

Picking, Staging, QA, Packing

Be ready to pick up the pace when high volumes hit.

You only have so much labor, so make the most of it with optimization features that keep you in the black. Picking is usually the most important process in inventory processing science.

For most inventory centric companies, the outbound side of the inventory is not only where most companies generate their profit, but its also the most labor intensive.

  • Pick each, case, and pallet in separate zones by separate individuals for fast parallel picks.
  • Combine a set of picks into one wave set with options to auto-ship or move to packing with secondary QA check.
  • License plates are automatically assigned during picks for optimal staging, packing, shipping, and site transfer receipts.
  • Over 30 picking configurations to help you work the way you want.
  • Short pick, unpick cancelled orders, or partialy stage picks with a hold status.
  • Auto-assign or manually assign orders in round robin fashion.
  • Order picks with routes are automatically distributed in reverse stop order.
