July 21, 2011 - PRLog -- You have leading-edge warehouse control software to manage your warehouse or distribution center. You’ve increased productivity, reduced waste and improved on-time deliveries. System performance has never been better. But can you improve upon your improvements without spending a fortune?    

The answer is yes. “By implementing enhancements, you continue to fine-tune the customer’s operation,” states Jerry List, Vice President of QC Software (, a leading provider of warehouse control systems. “Warehouse managers are always looking for ways to improve efficiency. And when you add a new product line or equipment, you need to make adjustments to keep your operation running smoothly. Adding software enhancements is one way to accomplish that with a relatively small investment.”    

Under Armour, a global developer, marketer, and distributor of branded performance apparel, footwear, and accessories, installed QC Software’s applications to increase warehouse capacity. As the company continued to grow, they later added various enhancements to further streamline floor operations. To reduce picking congestion, QC Software installed multi-point induction, which allowed cartons to be inducted from various locations. When a new conveyor system was installed, QC Software implemented an auto-tote induction system to manage the release of new totes for order fulfillment. Other features were added to prioritize the routing of orders. With these enhancements, Under Armour was able to efficiently process the increasing volume of orders.

Arbonne International, a direct sales company specializing in personal care products, implemented QC Software’s applications in their US and Canadian facilities to improve efficiency.  When Arbonne later replaced their warehouse management system, QC Software installed several enhancements to optimize order fulfillment. They added dynamic workload balancing so that QC Software’s applications now select the optimum pick location based on current system activity.  This eliminated the imbalance and inefficiency that occurs when the warehouse management system allocates pick locations in advance and cannot react to last-minute changes. Other features were installed to reduce backorders. By streamlining resources and increasing productivity, Arbonne was able to lower their cost per order.  

As warehouse managers are asked to do more with less, software enhancements are a cost-effective way to do that.
