Lot Tracking

One standout feature of COLLECT WMS is lot tracking. This extends to expiry data management, which is vital for FEFO management. And any business which needs a clear chain of ownership for the sake of audits or industry regulations will benefit from this tool.

In addition to lots, the COLLECT WMS system supports serialized items, allowing businesses to manage individual items with unique serial numbers and track batches of products with specific lot numbers.

License Plating

Since COLLECT WMS was originally created for the automotive industry, it has an incredibly powerful license plating system. Easily create, scan, and manage license plates to streamline handling of pallets and partial pallets within the warehouse. Users can scan and move entire pallets or partial pallets of products with specific lot numbers, maintaining lot integrity during material handling.

What Features Are Missing?

While COLLECT WMS is a comprehensive software, it might be improved with:

  • Cloud-hosting: Currently, COLLECT WMS is only accessible by desktop or from the mobile application which worlds on handheld devices. Fortunately, there are plans to introduce a cloud-based version within the year.

Based on our experiences, we recommend COLLECT WMS for improving warehouse facilities, especially amongst businesses which require extensive lot tracking. Any company dealing with FEFO, like pharmaceuticals or food distribution, can utilize these great tools to meet industry compliance. The multi-language support makes it possible for international businesses to use one system for all their warehouses as well.

Although implementation costs are separate, the monthly subscription is a great deal for the robust functionality. However, some businesses might need to purchase compatible handheld devices as well, which can increase the overall costs. And businesses with very simple inventory needs might want to opt for a more basic WMS.
