Allfast Solutions uses MYOB EXO and have recently upgraded to the latest version of The RIC Group’s WMS.
Allfast Solutions, New Zealand is a leading supplier of quality industrial fasteners.
Since implementation everyone within the business has been very happy with The RIC Group’s WMS solution and are using the WMS to stocktake on a daily basis. This has helped reduce the stock levels being carried and help improve the stock ordering process. The next phase of the project will be using it for the picking of sales orders.
The solution has been extremely stable and helped with business processes. The great part is that the Warehouse Management Solution is seamlessly integrated with MYOB EXO.

Aberdeen recommends that you look closely at real-time functionality in the analytics of you use - leaders are 31% more likely to have real-time visibility into the status of all processes and data. Here is the blog on how wholesalers and distributors can use analytics to boost productivity.
A key advantage of our WMS is using Power BI or other BI software for the real-time analytics and also our WMS has a real-time audit. This ensures all reporting and auditing is in real time. There is no waiting for syncs or for an 'app' to send the latest data. Everything is real-time including the analytics.
Another advantage of using a real-time WMS is you can see the current status of every line of orders being picked, receipting, put-away or transferred at that time. For example in the picking audit of our WMS you are looking at real time data of lines being picked. Therefore you are seeing real-time quantities being picked, which bin location the goods are being taking from, which lot (batch) numbers or serial numbers are being picked.

With Industry 4.0 placing an increasing amount of pressure on businesses to do more with less, many are looking to new technologies to improve quality, productivity and workforce efficiency. Augmented reality (AR) is among them.
Here is the latest blog from Zebra on Head-Mounted Display making augmented reality accessible to all mobile workers.
BARCODING THE WORLD
In our daily lives, most of us hardly give the barcode a second thought. We may interact with it when we’re shopping and even then, it is merely the “bunch of lines and spaces” that helps us process the transaction and buy an item. Most think that the purpose of this black and white mark is, well, black and white.

Primepac is a leading manufacturer & distributor of industrial suppliers & packaging products. They currently have warehouses in Auckland and Christchurch and use MYOB EXO as their ERP system.
To maximise operational effectiveness at Primepac the business implemented The RIC Group’s Warehouse Management Solution with Multi-bin for MYOB EXO at both warehouse locations. Samuel Walton, Finance Manager at Primepac states one of the reasons for selecting The RIC Group’s WMS is it integrates seamlessly into MYOB EXO and has ongoing product enhancements.
When asked about return on investment, Samuel from Primepac said “Since implementation we’re seeing a reduction in costs associated with missing / misplaced stock in the warehouse now that we have the feature of bin control. We have also been using The RIC Group’s TMS solution which has provided us with route planning and proof of delivery.”
The WMS and TMS solution is browser based which has allowed Primepac to deploy Samsung tablets mounted to the trolleys for the picking and putaway process. It allows the user to clearly see the products due to the bigger real estate on the screen.
The WMS has ensured the reduction in travel time and touches which has helped reduce operational costs. For further information please email our sales team at email@example.com
Here is a great blog post on Postmodern ERP and below are some key points from the blog post : http://bit.ly/2YsGpfE
Postmodern ERP is defined as the situation where companies abandon the traditional practice of using single, monolithic ERP platforms for several unique tasks and instead adopt a collection of individual standalone programs. In the past, ERP solutions were built comprehensively to offer business users a wide range of services under one collective umbrella.
There is no doubt that cloud-based software and integration opportunity have promoted the change from "all-in-one" legacy systems to picking and choosing solutions where your business only pays for and implements the tools it needs.
Flexibility is key and this is a big reason why enterprises are gravitating towards a postmodern ERP. With the availability of subscription pricing it does mean with with postmodern ERP software companies get exactly what they need instead of paying and reserving space for unnecessary functions.
The RIC Group's WMS is a best of breed WMS and is loosely coupled with the ERP. The pricing is a subscription model and customers select which features they would like implemented. A key reason we have always used a loosely coupled approach as an ISV (Independent software vendor) is that our WMS and TMS solution offers real scalability and versatility. Putting a box solution in place, can always lead to growing pains down the road.

I have been saying for some time it is a multi-cloud world and most companies are starting to have multi-cloud deployments. Every cloud provider has its strengths and weaknesses. Different requirements means that you can match these with the cloud provider for the best possible solution.
When deploying our WMS it must be flexible as there are many environments it will be deployed too. Currently we have deployed it onto an AWS environment and it is part of a server farm, AWS cloud, Azure cloud, cloud hosting and on premises. Every environment is different and using the latest technologies ensures our WMS deployments are successful.
Here is the Gartner article on multi-cloud strategy.
The RIC Group offices will be closed from 5:00pm on Friday 20th December 2019 to 8.30am on Monday 6th January 2020.
During this time, we will have a skeleton crew covering the support and you can contact the Support Team via email@example.com or by +61 478 113 932.
With our best of breed Warehouse Management Solution one of the greatest features is the ability of our WMS to adapt to the customers environment. A common scenario we deploy our WMS too is customers with catch weight requirements. With catch weight the base unit of measure is normally Kilos or Pounds as this is how it is weighed and invoiced.
With our latest catch weight customer using Acumatica the requirement is to capture the total weight for each lot for the item but also to capture the count of the cartons as well. With the below screen shot you can see the number of cartons in the RGWSCarton field. This allows the users of Acumatica to see the number of cartons for each lot number in stock. This helps ensure the FIFO method is used and also allows the sales and inventory team easy access to know the exact carton numbers in stock. It also allows for an average weight calculation.
Another feature we have recently allowed for is a pick sheet to be printed. This prints once the order is picked and allows the packing process to go through a pick sheet to ensure the order is correctly picked. It also helps the customer sort the orders for the correct routes.
