Inventory and Warehouse Management

Slingshot’s Inventory and Warehouse Management application forms an integral part of the inventory management and planning capabilities of the Enterprise Suite and offers all the functionality you would expect in a leading edge application. Access to enterprise suite applications is provided via a user configurable dashboard. The dashboard supports Alerts, Favorites Links, Key Performance Graphs, Workflow Tracking and a Message Board.

Slingshot’s Inventory and Warehouse Management system provides the functionality to efficiently manage and monitor your inventory and its costs for all types of products in all types of facilities.

Support is provided for both serialized and lot controlled items. Inventory descriptors can be added to these items (e.g. potency %, QA result). The descriptors themselves are user defined by type of product.

Processing needs often vary by facility. In a small stock room it may be efficient to store products in one or more fixed locations and confirm transactions from paper based lists. In large warehouses, flexible stock locators, system directed tasks and radio frequency capabilities are often essential.

This warehousing software allows you to manage inventory control and optimize efficiency by defining operational requirements at the facility level. This includes rules for inbound (receive, inspect and put away), outbound (pick, pack, ship) and in-warehouse (count, location replenishment, assembly work order) processes.

Purchase Order Management

Purchase Order Management application forms an integral part of the procurement and requisition management capabilities of the Enterprise Suite and offers all functionality you would expect in a leading edge application. Access to enterprise suite applications is provided via a user configurable dashboard. The dashboard supports Alerts, Favorites Links, Key Performance Graphs, Workflow Tracking and a Message Board.

Through online collaboration, Slingshot’s requisitioning system starts the process that your purchasing team (ideally powered by Slingshot’s Purchase Order Management application) will finish, knowing that they’re dealing with an approved and aggregated requisition for goods or services.

Your employees can begin entering requisitions with little or no training. Self service requests are created by using a familiar internet convention - the shopping cart. This is done by browsing catalogs, ordering from a shopping list by copying an earlier request, or by utilizing Slingshot Marketplace to Punch Out to your major supplier’s web sites. One-time product purchases, kits and kit components can be both purchased and inventoried items.

Online integration between requestor, purchaser and supplier mean that all requisitions are efficiently expedited, and can be reported on in real time. Any employee can enter, review and update open requisitions from any internet browser. Automated e-mail notifications keep everyone informed of approvals and when the goods have been issued from stock. The supplier and promised delivery date can also be viewed for each item.
