Chromagen, a pioneer in the production of solar water solutions has a long history of innovation and excellence.
Prior to The RIC Group’s WMS, the growing picking operation was run through a legacy system which relied on a lot manual processes and did not have any integration with SAP Business One.
Chromagen continues to grow the business by increasing the volume of work via existing and new customers. The increase work meant finding an alternative to a separate scanning solution without integration to SAP Business One. After looking at the market place, The RIC Group was identified as an industry-respected solution.
The RIC Group’s Warehouse Management solution (WMS) is able to track products as they enter the warehouse and scan and automate picking to speed up the overall fulfilment process. A great competitive advantage The RIC Group offered over the other solutions was it was organic with SAP Business One. Allowing Chromagen to use Pick Pack Manager to release Sales Orders, using the bin structure within SAP Business One. All information such as serial numbers captured by the WMS is sent straight into SAP Business One and the delivery document is automatically created.
Dov from Chromagen states “One of the key reasons for implementing The RIC Group’s WMS solution was to attain high levels of accuracy. We now have that and it means we know exactly what has been picked and what we have left. We also required some customisations to handle the serialisation complexity and they were able to deliver.”
A big plus with the The RIC Group has been their prompt support and willingness to help says Dov. Because of their prompt and timely support Dov said he would always be happy to recommend The RIC Group to any customer who is looking for a WMS.

With the Inventory Tab the users can now have the features of Stock Adjustments In and Stock Adjustments Out. The flexibility we have added is the ability for the user to select the different General Ledger accounts which are setup in SAP Business One.
Once the user completes the Stock Adjustment In or Stock Adjustment Out using the Warehouse Management Solution and press complete it will go and automatically create the Goods Issue or Goods Receipt in SAP Business One.
With the functions as well the user can add multiple products to the one Goods Issue or Goods Receipt. They can also select different GL accounts for each product line in the Goods Issue or Goods Receipt.
The RIC Group's WMS has the feature of Transport & Logistics which adheres to the GS-1 guidelines. This allows our customers to pack pallets into a shipment and consignment for Export orders.
Recording and monitoring the movement of logistic units is an essential part of supply chain management. Logistics labels help to track logistic units. Companies often need to label and re-label logistic units at each stop on the way of their destination.
Customers will need the ability to print SSCC labels for the pallet which is the recommended logistic label. There are really two pallets which you can have which is the homogeneous pallet and mixed pallet. SSCC is a unique identification of a logistics unit. Value for the lifetime of that unit to only be used for material handling.
For a Warehouse Management Solution to handle the requirement of export orders it will need to handle the pick and pack phase. Once the pack phase is completed the WMS will need to capture the container numbers each pallet is being packed into and then capture the Shipment number and also the consignment number. For one shipment there can be multiple containers.
Shipment represents the end-to-end delivery of goods between supplier and customer. The Global Shipment Identification Number (GSIN) is a number that identifies a shipment and is assigned by the seller of goods. There is also a GINC standard as well.
Our WMS allows the user to pack the pallets into a number of containers. With each container there is a different seal number as well.
