Frequently asked questions

Expand All | Collapse All
  • 1. How does Datapel Systems work to create cost savings and promote growth?
     

    Significant efficiency improvements in business administration and the warehouse operations can be expected with implementation of the Datapel Cloud.WMS.

    These will include:

    • Improved article search times saving valuable time
    • Improved tracking and inventory reporting
    • Lower inventory holding costs through reduced shrinkage and stock handling errors
    • Improve productivity and reductions in labour costs.

    Searching for stock using manual, paper-based, stock management processes, can take up to 30%+ of a storeman’s time. Datapel’s guided picks and flexible search functionality can dramatically reduce these search times and order fulfilment time.

    Additional efficiencies can be achieved by reducing errors with directed replenishments, transfers, putaways and integrating barcode scanning. The Datapel Cloud.WMS does the thinking for you, so both quality and accuracy increase while your labour costs drop.

  • 2. What are the system requirements for Datapel Cloud.WMS?
     

    The most basic requirement for access is a computer with a modern web browser. We recommend either Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, however other standard HTML5 browsers like MacOS Safari will operate with our service.

    For integrated barcode scanning you will need a USB port and tethered or bluetooth based wireless scanning device. Datapel can direct you to our preferred resellers or provide model numbers of devices that will best suit your requirements.

    If you require unattended printing of labels or forms, you will require a local PC and network printer(s) that are compatible with pdf, zpl, and other industry standard formats. Unlike other cloud systems, Datapel provides options for automatic printing without manual pdf downloads and manual printer selections.

    If you have a requirement to…

    • Track stock serial, batch or expiry date information
    • Track stock across multiple bins or locations
    • Attach stock or order associated digital documents or images.
    • Specific allocation of stock to sales orders

    • Manage order fulfilment and despatch processes

    … then the Datapel Cloud.WMS can help.

    Give us a call on 1300 137 082, email [email protected], or request a demonstration to discuss your requirements, and we’ll provide all the information you need to make an informed decision on how to improve stock control processes for your business.

  • 4. Is training mandatory?
     

    We provide comprehensive online help articles (see the Datapel Knowledge Base) to assist users with specific workflows in a step-by-step manner. As part of our subscription service you also have access to our support staff for specific questions on how to use Cloud.WMS, however our team is not able to provide ad-hoc training over the phone.

    Unless you’ve used our solution before or similar WMS we strongly recommend that you include Datapel training services as part of the implementation process. This ensures effective use of specialised workflows and features of our system, and a smooth transition for you and your staff. Investing in training shortens your learning curve and maximises your payback in improved productivity, higher efficiency and reduced errors.

  • 5. Can Datapel Cloud.WMS be customised to suit my specific requirements?
     

    We are always interested in improvements that save you time, deliver valuable business information, and help you organise your inventory. Do you have a specific need for a unique workflow, the import or export of business information or require additional reports? We strive to provide services to your specifications, where feasible, either after go-live or before we implement, so the system is ready to work for you as you need right from the start.

    Datapel Cloud.WMS is designed in a modular way making it possible to manage our client’s unique requirements without the excessive development and maintenance risk that typically accompanies fully custom-developed systems.
