Operational

The pre-arrival of the goods information can be entered into the system either via EDI or manually.

Hence, the documentation used to control that all the cargo declared by the client has been received and detect discrepancies is generated. Labels for cargo storage are printed.

Customers have the ability to manage and control the stock by any of the concepts introduced in the data sheet (date of manufacture, batch number, reference number, product family, etc ...)

The system allows personalised document printing  with the name and logo of the client, ensuring their good image and avoiding any sign of not having been in a customer ‘s warehouse.
