The key to getting the most out of your Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC) Cloud ERP solution is finding the right third-party apps that will reliably deliver value and meet the unique requirements of your business. At Western Computer, we work only with ISVs (Independent Software Vendors) that we know and whose products we respect. That’s why we are glad to tell you about a free app for warehouse management made available by Insight Works.
WMS Express from Insight Works is a free add-on for Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC that allows mobile device integration with your warehouse processes. Save time and increase accuracy by scanning barcodes to manage different warehouse operations.
The app is free, but that’s not the reason we’re so excited about it. Insight Works’ WMS Express is an advanced mobile warehouse system that will add value to your business by saving time and increasing organization.
Whether you run a simple operation where you use purchase orders and sales orders or operate a more complex warehouse, WMS Express will help streamline your processes.
Three versions of WMS Express:
There are three versions of WMS Express from which to choose, each developed to help streamline business processes in a retail or warehouse setting. The version you select will depend on your methods of operation.
Why three versions? No two organizations are exactly the same; their processes and requirements may differ, and choosing a version that best meets your needs will result in greater efficiency. A knowledgeable partner like Western Computer can advise you about the best choice for your business.
The WMS Express Standard version is best for businesses that utilize purchase orders and sales orders but don’t need warehouse documents such as picks and put-aways.
The WMS Express Basic Warehouse version is an excellent choice for organizations that have a basic warehouse and need to document and enabled inventory put-aways and inventory picks.
The WMS Express Warehouse version is ideal for businesses wanting to use the warehouse document features of Dynamics 365 BC.
You can see a comprehensive table of features for each version here.
Key Features of WMS Express
WMS Express integrates seamlessly with your Dynamics 365 BC system. Configuring the app takes only a few minutes. Just scan a barcode, and depending on your version of Dynamics 365 BC, the app will configure itself.
WMS Express supports mobile devices with both Windows and Android operating systems. You’ll be able to use a variety of handheld devices such as mobile computers, tablets, smartphones, and wearables.
WMS Express also supports multi-dimensional barcoding, and if you use 2D matrix barcoding, the compact size and large data capacity will allow you to gather and store more data with just one scan.
