Quality control is an important part of the activities in a warehouse.
Quality checks can be performed in the logistics process at any time: during goods in, storage or goods out. The results of the quality control are entered in the WMS / TMS, for example, via tablet, phone or scanner. All data will be transparent for everyone, even for the owner of the goods.
By connecting wireless terminals or tablets to the WMS system, allows you to check the quality of goods at all times during the logistics process. Colour product, maturation stage, temperature or amount per package: you determine which features you want to perform inspections. The results of the quality control are linked in the WMS to the respective goods, products, lots or batches.
As soon as the goods arrive at the warehouse, the barcodes are scanned (for example) by the forklift driver. If any damage is observed a photo is made with the app (on a tablet or phone) and a possible description of the damage is submitted. The photo and description are directly linked in the WMS/TMS to the goods in. Where necessary, an automatic (email) message is sent to the customer, with the photo attached. In this way, you keep your customer in the loop and prevent discussions as to culpability or the scope of the damage. This provides your customer with plenty of time to find a solution for the damaged items. And, you prevent damaged goods proceeding down the supply chain.
If your team observe any damage to items when loading the trucks, they take a photo using the Dynamics app. They link this to the pertinent carrier number and to the order in the WMS. The damage report is immediately accessible to you, and to your customer. Where necessary, an automatic (email) message is sent to the customer, with the photo attached. This prevents discussions after the event.
One criterion of quality frequently checked is the weight of goods. If a weight deviation is discerned that could indicate a quality issue. This is why our WMS has a weight link: the weights are automatically specified with the relevant party/batch or item.
Temperature is a vital checking criterion with logistics suppliers dealing in cold store products in particular. By linking up with temperature gauges the temperature measurements are directly linked to a relevant party/batch or item.
"For our customers, their goods are their most valuable asset. By storing, monitoring and transporting these goods we take a great responsibility. In order to be able to do this, a standard, future-proof WMS is required. With Boltrics' WMS, we are assured of an up-to-date system and always have access to the latest innovations. "
"In the short term, custom made software can provide a good solution. However, with the growth we experience as Dynamic Logistics, a powerful WMS tool was needed with little to no customization. Therefore, we opted for Boltrics' WMS solution."
"We opted for Boltrics because of their strong focus on logistics service providers, the standard yet highly flexible branch solution, and the Microsoft Dynamics platform as its core."
"Gathering data in one location is becoming increasingly important. Real-time insight into stocks is essential. With Boltrics' WMS, we benefit from the benefits of an industry standard, but at the same time, it offers the flexibility to implement our business-specific processes. "
Nekovri Dynamics had our preference for all European sites. The solution offers all the necessary integrated functionality to improve operational efficiency and be better positioned for organic and acquisitive growth. In addition, we will be able to registrate the temperature, batch numbers, production- and expiration date. It will simplify our work processes and save us time.”
“With 3PL Dynamics, we can easily realize interfaces with 3rd parties and it enables us to support our air freight specific processes. In addition, the same solution also houses our warehouse and transport activities, which makes it possible to integrate all process in one solution, enter data only once, and gain with our management information a complete overview of all our activities at a glance.”
"The software is based on Microsoft and as such is exceedingly user-friendly and intuitive."
"Our solution is built on standard Dynamics 365 Business Central technology, without customization, so we can join seamlessly along with upgrades in the future, so no problem anymore with outdated legacy software."

“Having chosen 3PL Dynamics it’s possible for Estron to register and support all warehouse processes, such as goods in, goods out, storage, production process, cross-docking, order picking, goods blockading, invoicing and reporting. The processes are sully supported with RF scanners.”
"Lineage Logistics selected Nekovri Dynamics because the solution scored best on functionality, user-friendliness, flexibility, architecture and continuous evolvement."

As Boltrics only ever uses the latest Nekovri Dynamics releases, we are always up-to-date and ready for the future!”
“We work far more efficiently with Nekovri Dynamics. The physical processes haven’t actually changed that much but because all the information is centrally recorded, the administrative processes have been simplified. All the requisite information needed to make decisions during the ripening process of the bananas is immediately manageable by everyone. “
“With our preference for 3PL Dynamics we can better capitalise upon our wishes with more flexibility.

"As standard the WMS by Nekovri Dynamics supports all conditioned Goes Handling’s warehousing activities; goods in, goods out, storage, siphoning and cross-docking, order picking, dispatch and goods blockading."
“It’s self-evident that the knowledge acquired from other cold store businesses has been incorporated well into the standard solution. The solution offers more than we actually asked for. “
"Thanks to the new WMS, Frigolanda can apply the same modus operandi at every Dutch site. Furthermore, we can save a customer’s stock levels across multiple warehouses. With our old WMS we had to create a separate customer each time for that.”
“Nekovri Dynamics is a complete, integrated WMS/ERP solution that is formulated only with the cold store sector in mind.”
“The maxim at HK Logistics is to serve customers at a high service level. We believe that Nekovri Dynamics contributes greatly to this.

Similarly, in the future we will be in a position to flexibly match customer requirements. Moreover, we also incorporate our financial administration in Nekovri Dynamics, meaning we have everything in a single standard package. ”
"With Nekovri Dynamics we automate our in-house processes and have a direct link between the weighing units and the WMS."
"EDI, RF scanning in the warehouse and an automated information system make it possible to get through more work yet with fewer transactions. With Nekovri Dynamics this efficiency drive is attained."
“We opted for Nekovri Dynamics as it links up perfectly with our requirements pertaining to message handling with our customers and conventional Microsoft programmes. In addition, the multi-site options suit us very well and the software is much more user-friendly.”
“As 3PL Dynamics is continuously reviewed we’ll never reach that point where the software is obsolete and that, for example, after 10 years only a full reimplementation will suffice. As such we’re transitioning from registration to control and management.”
