Wills Transfer, 3PL Integration and Technical Services for businesses from Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Western Quebec, and the U.S. Eastern Seaboard.
No two 3PL customers are alike. The needs of the customer and the markets they serve significantly impact the technology, people, and processes of the 3PL relationship. At Wills Transfer, we are keenly aware of these needs and have invested heavily in the right software solution to meet our customer’s needs.
One ongoing investment is the consistent upgrading of our Integration and Technical Services.
A warehouse management system (WMS) is a software solution that offers visibility into a business’s entire inventory and manages supply chain fulfillment operations from the distribution center to the store shelf.
It is designed to support the needs of an entire global supply chain, including distribution, manufacturing, asset-intensive, and service businesses.
At Wills Transfer, we use Excalibur, which is built on Microsoft Dynamics NAV, and is a feature-rich Warehouse Management Solution (WMS) that allows flexibility and performance for each of our warehouses in Eastern Ontario.
Excalibur provides all our stakeholders with complete visibility across the entire operation, including a robust customer web portal with real-time inventory and job status information.
Excalibur is hosted in Wills Transfer’s own Microsoft Azure Cloud environment, where security and performance are top of mind. Using this virtual private network, we connect our Warehouse staff, CSRs, and Managers to Excalibur.
A barcode reader (or barcode scanner) is an optical scanner that can read printed barcodes, decode the data contained in the barcode, and send the data to a computer. It consists of a light source, a lens, and a light sensor translating optical impulses into electrical signals.
RF Scanners have marked a turning point in the logistics management of any organization. Practically all facilities rely on these devices to carry out their logistics operations, instantly, and without errors.
The RF Scanner is a handheld terminal used to read barcodes, QR codes, and RFID tags. These essential devices transmit the data they collect to the WMS reliably, accurately, and in real-time. Picking is probably the operation that benefits most from the help of an RF Scanner. But these “Swiss Army knives” of logistics are capable of much more.
RF Scanners can have applications in many logistics operations, among which include:
Additionally, RF Scanners perform other operations such as inventory replenishment, returns management, stock control, and so on.
Regardless of the facility’s level of automation, practically all warehouses have RF Scanners. Without them, operators would have to resort to pen and paper, entailing more mistakes, more returns, and ultimately, disappointed customers.
Wills Transfer has invested heavily in the last few years in technology and hardware that make the job of processing our customer’s items into and out of our warehouses quicker and more efficient through the use of barcode scanning.
WIMS is our solution to allow warehouse staff to connect directly with Excalibur our WMS using a variety of devices such as Glacier computers on the forklift and handheld Zebra RF Guns. Functions of WIMS include the following:
Our warehouse staff is outfitted with Zebra MC9300 Android RF Guns to allow them to do picks and put away directly into our WMS, Excalibur.
Wills Transfer is a 3PL. Part of being a 3PL is being able to be flexible to accommodate a very wide range of customer needs from a diverse group of industries. Wills can utilize the many integration features of Excalibur WMS to integrate with our customers’ systems and order entry modules. With these integrations, we can automate the following:
We also have an in-house development team that can build custom reports, develop KPI dashboards, and build custom integration functions that would accommodate even the most complex 3PL Customer.
Our WMS, Excalibur can integrate with your ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) such as Oracle, SAP, NetSuite, Microsoft Dynamics 365, SAGE, Acumatica, and EPICOR. Using this type of integration benefits you as the customer by exchanging critical data from your ERP to ours thus reducing human error when entering data manually.
