Developed by the people that know warehousing for people who need a warehousing solution. The “INTRO” WMS was designed specifically for the smaller to medium sized warehouses. The INTRO WMS is based on the MR2 WMS framework which ensures a stable operating environment and provides a clear upgrade path should the need arise.The structure and logic has been developed to be user friendly and efficient utilising drop-down menus and prompted data entry fields to perform tasks, select reports and update information. INTRO uses portable radio frequency (RF) scanning devices to perform real time tasks in the warehouse environment. Barcode scanning is used, where practical, to input information via the RF device. A VDU is used to view enquiries and reports.
