Receiving

Challenges:
Purchasing specialists need to have an on-site verification of the received merchandise (type and quantity) and later input details into the company’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system via a fixed computer. The process is time consuming, with a high error rate and a risk of fraud because of lacking supervision.

Solution:
Chainway Android-based handheld computer receives purchase orders from the company’s back-end server through 3G/4G/Wi-Fi connectivity. Warehouse operators use Chainway handheld computers to scan products’ 1D/2D barcodes or UHF/HF/LF RFID tags to make an automatic verification, then transfer this data wirelessly to the ERP system.

Results: 

1. UHF RFID tags can be read through parcels in seconds for a dense population. Chainway handheld computer captures digital data of your received goods accurately and instantly. It is error-free and cost-effective.​

2. The system can also lead the worker to the right place where each piece of a shipment should be located on the shortest route. ​

3. If products are damaged, unqualified, or discrepant with purchase orders, workers can take photos with Chainway handheld computer as evidence.​

4. Data about the received products are transferred into the ERP system, updating its database. Logistics administrators gain real-time insight into the actual stock and ​supply chain will have a positive start.
