Using the system, staff use hand-held devices which connect to the main Aptean Distribution ERP SWORDS Edition network via RF access points installed in your warehouse. The RF system delivers significant increases in efficiency and productivity to your stock control and picking operations, as well as increasing accuracy in goods-in.
RF WMS manages your stock in real-time. The system speeds up your stock take process by continuously monitoring stock, providing your business with real-time stock data
From stock replenishment and goods-in, to order picking and stock taking, RF WMS can dramatically streamline operations and reduce manual picking errors

Increased sales with our Queuebuster facility, which allows Radio Frequency handheld devices to be used as mobile points of sale in the warehouse
Improved stock accuracy at goods-in, as all deliveries are scanned and matched against purchase orders at the point of delivery, with automatic alerts sent to the buyer for any variances against the purchase order
A more streamlined stock take process, whenever it is needed, with real-time stock data

Cost savings by eliminating costly picking errors
Tasks are transmitted to staff automatically via RF, product barcodes are scanned using the device and task completions are automatically sent back to the system - so you can have confidence that your order picking operation is performing efficiently and with accuracy.
In addition, RF WMS and the put-away control system allows pickers to find items quicker with location details of where stock is being held in bulk areas in the warehouse. The system also improves stock accuracy at goods-in, as all deliveries are scanned and matched against purchase orders at the point of delivery.
