IT Systems

Sedlak employs all technologies without bias.


 

Warehouse Management Systems (WMS)

A Warehouse Management System, also known as a WMS, is an IT system responsible for managing inventory and fulfillment center operations from receiving through shipping. A WMS commonly includes order allocation and wave management.

Warehouse Execution Systems (WES)

A Warehouse Execution System, also called a WES, is an IT system responsible for managing and optimizing the flow of work through a fulfillment or distribution center. A WES includes balancing labor and equipment resources to achieve efficiencies throughout a facility.

Warehouse Control Systems (WCS)

A Warehouse Control System, also known as a WCS, is the system responsible for controlling material handling equipment, especially as it relates to PLC level functions, conveyor flow control and operations such as routing containers on the conveyor.

Labor Management Systems (LMS)

A Labor Management System, also called an LMS, is the system that captures, tracks and reports key operational data related to labor functions in near real-time to monitor progress against planned objectives. This includes all labor hours expended in the warehouse for tasks monitored.

Transportation Management Systems (TMS)

A Transportation Management System, also known as a TMS, is a logistics platform that uses information systems to help businesses plan, execute and optimize the physical movement of goods between facilities, both incoming and outgoing and to make sure shipments are compliant with transportation regulations.

Order Management Systems (OMS)

An Order Management System, also called an OMS, not only supports all stages of your company’s sales process, from order creation through customer delivery; it also makes quick work of logistics challenges inherent in an omnichannel world. A key benefit of an OMS is it provides a single, centralized system for managing orders from all sales channels: store, web, call center, mobile and kiosk.

Yard Management System (YMS)

A Yard Management System, also called a YMS, is a software solution designed to monitor the movement of trailers in the yards of facilities, distribution centers or warehouses, and to make the most efficient use of both inbound and outbound trailer docks.

GTP, or Goods to Person, is a different way of thinking about warehouse picking that moves items to workers rather than workers to items. It cuts down on fatigue, mistakes, and overhead.

The Sedlak Team was fortunate enough to have Inther Group, an international system integration firm, host a Lunch and Learn session for us recently. Inther Group automates internal logistic processes by integrating manual solutions and mechanized systems.

When selecting a TMS, it is paramount to partner with one that best fits your needs to realize that ROI.  Organizations with a low domestic freight spend but high international shipment volume need a Tier 1 TMS.
