SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
Some consider as the "heart" of the company, because as the heart modulates blood flow, so the warehouse stock and dispatches products, regulates their flow from acquisition-supplier, production, to their transfer, distribution and consumption.

Receiving: In the receiving process to the warehouse, products and packages are identified and labeled. By using wireless technology and barcode achieve fast and error-free receipt of goods in the warehouse, as well as support the possibility of issuing barcode labels for pallets, crates, pieces whenever deemed necessary.
Deposition: Enable the storekeeper to know the entire stock of an item, where it is located, as well as other parameters of the stored products such lots, serial numbers, etc. (multiple storage locations ability). Also record in detail all the internal movements of the products and perform the deposit by wireless terminals (RF), following the instructions of the system driven by rules on product placement in the correct position.
