As we reach the halfway mark in the year, it is incredible to think how far OrderWise has come in the space of six months. Since January, our developers have added well over 290 new modules, features, reports and general enhancements to our state-of-the-art business management software, with this new functionality spread across all areas of our main system and Mobile WMS Devices.
All these new features added in to OrderWise 2015 have been specifically designed to improve existing functionality and help our customers to increase the accuracy, efficiency and productivity of all their daily business processes and warehouse operations. So, let us take a look back at some of the big additions that have been introduced to the software so far this year:
OrderWise Commerce Websites
Without a doubt the biggest addition to our Business Management Solution in 2015, June saw us finally unveil the OrderWise Commerce, Website Design & Development Team. We recognised that one of the largest headaches businesses today face is having to go back and forth between their website developer and their business software provider in order to organise integration between the two systems. Additionally, it means businesses are paying for the services of two suppliers and dealing with two different support teams, resulting in issues not being dealt with fast enough.
To solve this longstanding issue most businesses face, we decided to introduce our own Website Team that allows us to provide all OrderWise users the with a powerful, fully integrated all-in-one business management solution. However not only does that mean that businesses can now manage all of their daily processes from their front end website through to their back end accounting with OrderWise, but it also removes the need to go back and forth between support teams whenever an issue is raised. As all OrderWise Websites are integrated with the main OrderWise Business Management Software, companies are able to benefit from a cost effective support package from one provider to cover the entirety of their operations.
eBay & Amazon Product Creation & Listings
Another huge addition to our Business Management Solution and in particular our Marketplace Integration, this year has seen the introduction of both eBay and Amazon Listings to OrderWise. eBay and Amazon are the two most widely used marketplaces in the world, yet we saw that many businesses trading through these marketplaces struggled to find one single solution to manage all aspects of their trading through these popular sales channels.
Now with OrderWise eBay and Amazon Listings, businesses trading through these online sales channels are able to benefit from effective management of their entire operation from start to finish. OrderWise Marketplace Integration provides the functionality for businesses to manage everything from product creation and listings, automated order imports and stock level synchronisation, all the way through to transfer of details over to courier services, despatch updates and delivery. What’s more, businesses trading through other sales channels either online or offline can benefit from one single place to manage all of them successfully.
Mobile WMS Devices
An integral part of the OrderWise Business Management Solution, our Mobile WMS Devices have again been making huge waves this year with their popularity continuing to increase as more businesses begin to recognise the vast benefits of using these devices. Leading the way in cutting edge warehouse management software and barcode scanning technology, these
Wi-Fi and 3G enabled handheld terminals allow businesses to wirelessly, accurately and efficiently manage all their common warehouse tasks.
The demand for these Mobile WMS Devices has been led to and driven by the increasing amount of functionality available on these devices, with more modules and features being constantly introduced in order for mobile device user requirements to be met. Since January, these revolutionary devices have seen a number of high profile new additions, including support for GS1 barcodes and a new Mobile Manufacturing Module.
Here’s what has been added so far this year:
GS1 Barcode Support
Currently, GS1 barcodes are used by over two million companies around the world, including major retailers, popular online marketplaces, food service operators and healthcare organisations, with more than six billion transactions processed using these barcodes each day. These encoded barcodes offer a streamlined method of transferring several different fields of data, including serial and batch traceability details, into a device with just a single scan. Allowing our Mobile WMS Device users to make use of the huge increases in both accuracy and efficiency these dynamic barcodes bring, GS1 barcode scanning capabilities are now available on these devices.
The OrderWise Mobile Manufacturing module enables businesses to strike the perfect balance between detailed recording of costs and fast, accurate works order processing. Using these devices in-conjunction with Manufacturing in the main OrderWise system, businesses have the functionality available to pick component stock, work through manufacturing processes, manage sub contract work, log labour, equipment, add any created by-products and more.
