Distribution Package (ADIS) helps your organization run more efficiently
and effectively, ultimately bringing more profits to the bottom line. It
does this by better customer service, reducing administrative costs and
overall better control of
product distribution. Although a separate module, it does not
show up in the list of applications. When ordered the ADIS functionality
is activated in the inventory module and other applications become
available such as RMA.
ADIS application consists of a set of six specific functions: Landed
Cost, Multi-Bin, Return Material Authorization,
Confirm Picking, Hard Allocation, and Material Inspection.
This functionality, described below, provides added benefits and value
to the way you run your business. These modules have the capability of
improving customer service and controlling administrative cost.
Remember, your competitor may be providing this capability to his
customers, shouldn’t you?
Cost - Landed Cost capability enables you to calculate all costs of
the product normally associated with purchasing and receiving materials
for resale or production. These costs called landed costs include such
items as freight, import duties, custom charges, insurance and other
handling costs. The Landed Cost Tracking system ensures that landed
costs are capitalized against the inventory item allowing for accurate
ROI and Cost of Goods Sold.
Multi-Bin- A Multi Bin system supports a tightly controlled
stockroom, as you create and maintain multiple bins within a location.
Multiple items may reside in the same bin and the same item may reside
in multiple bins within a location. The benefits are clear. Parts can be
located easier and faster. Warehouse space is better utilized and labor
cost can be reduced.
Return Material Authorization (RMA)
gives your customer service and sales representatives the power to track
authorizations for return of products. It also provides the ability to
track “cross-ships” which provides better customer service. RMA
provides the means to enter, track and resolve customer returns. RMA’s
are entered on line and a system created authorization number is given
to your customers. This application has the potential to reduce labor
cost associated with managing returns.
Pick- Confirm Pick updates the quantities on-hand and allocated
items by location. It adjusts the quantities when you enter the
information after picking and assembling the order. More accurate
on-hand information is now available to your customers.
Allocation- ADIS allows you to use hard allocation as well as soft
allocation. Using hard allocation, you commit specific serial, lot
and/or bin numbers to an order during order processing. This is
beneficial when specific lots must remain together.
Inspection - When material arrives at your dock, not all of it may
be in acceptable condition. Items tagged for inspection are received in
an inspection warehouse. The material is in your inventory but not
available for distribution until inspected and made available for sale
or manufacturing. Detail statistics are maintained for rejected items
and rules for inspection can be established.
