If you are using The RIC Group's Warehouse Management Solution with Acumatica and integrating with other applications in this multi cloud world, it is always good to know the status of the Shipment. Our WMS updates the Acumatica Shipment to let the users know whether it is in pick in progress or pick completed.
The API for the WMS updates the Pick Status field in Acumatica. To know which stage of picking and packing the shipment is up to then you can view this in the Pick Pack Manager in the WMS.
Our clients with multiple companies or multiple instances of our WMS have asked, 'Is there a way we can change the colour to know which WMS we are logged into?'. Yes there sure is. You can adjust the Theme for each WMS using the configuration through the CSS file.
The RIC Group's WMS is the Intelligent WMS making it easier for our customers. Contact email@example.com for further information.

FlashCo have been utilising The RIC Group’s WMS for warehouse management with SAP Business One for about 4 years and it has been an integral part to promote growth for the business.
FlashCo has grown to be one of the largest manufacturers of roof flashing and accessories in North America with over 8 million parts made since 2000. FlashCo manufacturers standard and custom flashing for commercial and residential roofing contractors that are sold through hundreds of roofing supply distributors located throughout the U.S.
FlashCo went to market and wanted to implement and easy to use and cost effective Warehouse Management Solution with Proof of Delivery for SAP Business One. Since implementation everyone within the business has been very happy with The RIC Group’s WMS solution has helped reduce most of our non value added work in our customer service roles. The pick system has lead to a cultural shift on our production floor stopping and containing material errors and scrap from getting downstream in our process.
The solution has been extremely stable and helped with business processes. The great part is that the Warehouse Management Solution is seamlessly integrated with SAP Business One. Matt from the FlashCo team, states “The RIC Group provides fantastic support and the warehouse management solution has helped deliver efficiency and streamline our business processes. The WMS system is helping transform more than just our warehouse. It’s helping drive real time information across the entire supply chain.”
As The RIC Group’s WMS is a best-of-breed WMS it incorporates and supports visibility across the extended supply chain, enabling proactive disruption management and continuous adaptation to change. With the ability for integration with Power BI it allows customers to report on metrics and KPI’s in the warehouse.
For warehouses, the growth of e-commerce fulfilment, where one and two line orders are common, also comes with substantially increased order volumes, smaller order sizes and reduced order cycle times. As the number of orders increase with small order sizes the distribution company needs a cost and time-efficient approach to pick the orders.
Within our Warehouse Management Solution one of the features which gets used is our 'multi-order tote-picking'. This is where a wave pick is released and it contains multiple orders. The picker uses a trolley which is loaded with multiple reusable tote bins and the picker makes a single pass through the pick zone to pick all the orders concurrently. This reduces the pickers travel distance significantly. Therefore the picker will pick the items for multiple orders in one pass through the warehouse.
Once all orders are completed the trolley is brought back to the packing area where each tote has a single order in it to be packed. After the orders are packed, the picker reuses the totes to pick the next wave of orders. The RIC Group's WMS also allows the picker to print a pick label which can be placed in the tote. This allows the packer to scan the pick label to bring up the right order for packing automatically.
Above shows how to release multiple orders into a wave. Ticking the check box for documents 000690 and 000691 will release into one wave pick. This creates one Pick ID.
In the above screen you can see that multiple document numbers are in the one Pick ID of 153.
When the picker drives into the product to scan the products they are picking, the document number is displayed at the top. Each tote represents a document number and the picker picks into the tote. Once completed the wave the user presses the complete button and the multiple shipments or delivery documents are updated in the ERP.
