Warehouse Management

Currently operating in over 80 Meat, Fish and Food Processing plants around the world

Warehouse Management Software

Emydex’s Warehouse Management software is currently operating in over 80 Meat, Fish and Food Processing plants around the world including Ireland, the UK, Europe, Africa and Australia.

Our Warehouse Management System (WMS) manages and reports on all Stock from factory door to door by tracking and tracing the movement of serialised, non-serialised and batch products both into and out of factory warehouse locations and Cold Stores.

The system handles all stock types whether raw materials, dry goods, ingredients and packaging. On the factory floor the WMS utilises hand-held scanning terminals to scan barcodes or RFIDs over wireless networks, and can even operate on forklift mounted terminals used in Cold Store environments.

Having first gone live in 2006 in one of the Irelands largest beef processors Kepak Clonee, today our Warehouse Management Module has evolved into a full-blown Warehouse Management System that is capable of managing 3rd Party Cold Store businesses.
