Effective warehouse management is important to ensure customer demand is satisfied correctly and timely. Not only will this help maintain a high quality service level, the efficiency gained will help maximise profitability and client retention.
WinMan provides the tools to support optimised warehouse processes including paperless processing on modern PDA, surface and smartphone technology supporting iOS, Android and Windows operating systems.
WinMan ERP will support any requirements for consolidated pick and pack, multi-center picks per order, pick face and replenishment processes. The system can sequence product location parameters, help control warehouse zones, administer automatic replenishment and manage overflow stock. Picking instructions can be tailored and produced based on any number of variables including weight, volume, carrier and geography to optimise labour usage.
In the case of multiple warehouse locations, all inventory transfers, branch information, product data and stock levels can be easily logged and retrieved. Inventory can be easily traced when you need to find out where specific stock is from and where it was used.
The lot number and serial number tracking functions will permit full traceability from the moment an item enters the warehouse until the time it leaves. WinMan allows easy management of minimum shelf life, traditional first in, first out processing, and same batch needs when allocating stock.
When using third parties to dispatch goods, WinMan can integrate with a number of freight carriers to eradicate duplication of data and system inputs. This enables companies to extend the ship same day cut off and while providing carrier links for tracking and proof of delivery. Manage confidently based on accurate metrics using key performance indicators of both customer and employee performance.
WinMan fully supports perpetual and fixed stock control processes using mobile devices with WinMan technology installed.

Our WinMan ERP system allows me to directly and quickly access the management information I need to run the business – real-time reporting of key performance indicators such as operating efficiencies and deliveries. Vitally, more consistent pricing gives a truer margin on the work we perform. Meanwhile the system has supported our company’s strategy of investment for growth and its ability to meet delivery promises, hence strengthening its reputation in the marketplace as a reliable and trustworthy supplier. An accurate delivery date to the nearest day can now be assigned by our sales administration staff within half-an-hour of an order being placed. We proudly meet over 99% of those dates.
As a director of the business it was important to me that the system we implemented not only met our functional requirements, but also came from a supplier that was prepared to take on single source responsibility. Of all of the companies we evaluated, WinMan were the only one that ticked all the boxes.
The underlying advantage of WinMan for John Sankey was its flexibility and the ease with which it could be tailored to suit the company’s specific needs.
Our objective was to streamline data processing and substantially reduce keystrokes – a 50% reduction was the minimum target – and a lot of that keystroking was to do with assignment. The more non-value-adding activity we can take out the better.
