What is multi-storage capability?
Multi-warehouse capability is a crucial feature in warehouse management software, allowing companies to get all the information about their warehouse locations at a glance. Even organizationally and spatially separated warehouse locations can be mapped and managed. This means that an identical item can be stored and retrieved in a warehouse in Cologne and Berlin, for example.
The following variants are possible, for example:
- Hierarchical multi-warehouse systems: assortment structuring
- Network-type multi-warehouse systems: Goods can always be ordered from a specific warehouse. However, the delivery of the products can be implemented by different criteria such as respectively: delivery stock, delivery readiness and travel distance from another warehouse.
- Multi-warehouse system via MRP: In one order process, goods can be ordered for several warehouses via a quantity scale.
