To maximize the efficiency and productivity of our warehouses, World Distribution Services uses Synapse by Zethcon as its Warehouse Management System (WMS).
We live in a "need to know it now" world. Synapse provides our customers with real-time visibility via a secure web connection. Our customers have fast, 24/7/365 access to live inventory data and can retrieve key reports, enter orders and view activity anytime, anywhere through our convenient web portal.
The flexible and powerful core of Synapse is a browser-based system which includes complete inventory control functionality plus integrated RF data collection. The advanced technology also makes it quick and easy to integrate into ERP, TMS, EDI, eCommerce shopping carts like Shopify, or other software systems such as SAP or QuickBooks.
Synapse uses a customizable setup approach which defines and enforces item-specific rules based on a multitude of criteria. For every transaction, Synapse automatically enforces rules, rates, processes, location selection, product rotation, packing, stacking and any other criteria associated with a particular item. This remarkably efficient approach enables us to better serve our customers.
From the ground-up, Synapse was built specifically for warehouse management. With easily configurable functionality for receipts, putaways, transfers, counts, and picks, clients who use our Synapse WMS enjoy the following benefits:
In addition to complete inventory control functionality, Synapse's built-in intelligence recognizes item velocity, seasonality, stackability and other criteria which maximizes space utilization.
Synapse features RF-enabled support for receiving, put away, inventory counting, scan in/scan out, inquiry and re-warehousing, and order picking.
These capabilities enhance accuracy, accountability, and traceability.
