Open Systems Enhances Traverse Advanced Warehouse Management

Businesses wanting more mobile interactivity and engagement when managing their inventory now have a new option.

Open Systems, Inc. has added new functionality for customers who need a warehouse management and accounting system with mobile device capabilities. The company makes the TRAVERSE Advanced Warehouse Management Solution (AWMS) and accounting and ERP systems for business management.

“Along with a number of new features, users can now add a fourth level of inventory traceability with the addition of Zones,” said Adam Brister, Manager of Project Delivery Services for Open Systems. “Additionally, companies can perform group picks and consolidate picked items in the packing process.”

“With these new additions, AWMS brings our customers the powerful capabilities of TRAVERSE Warehouse Management, which ensures they can achieve consistent and prompt order fulfillment,” said Paul Lundquist, Vice President of Sales for Open Systems.

The TRAVERSE AWMS can be modified to use widely available and inexpensive off-the-shelf tablets and scanning equipment. “Unlike many mobile warehouse solutions, the AWMS doesn’t require expensive specialized mobile equipment,” said Brister. “With mounting brackets, tablets, and scanners, the total cost per mobile system can be far less than typical specialized scanner solutions. The feedback from customers has been very positive.”

Lundquist added that the AWMS improves efficiency in picking, packing, and shipping orders by streamlining day-to-day activities and maximizing the productivity of warehouse staff. “With added functionality and access to the growing selection, increasing quality, and falling prices of consumer tablets, customer warehouse systems can be more efficient and cost-effective,” said Lundquist.
