Manage your warehouse with ease!


Advanced Warehouse Management is a comprehensive option within Jim2 designed for larger distribution facilities, fulfilment houses or those businesses that require semi-automated stock replenishment for order packing lines.

Warehousing is primarily concerned with the allocation of stock to specific bins within a location, and the total tracking of that stock, from the moment of arrival in the warehouse through every stage to final dispatch. Although primarily concerned with stock movement, warehousing is evident throughout Jim2 as stock transactions are tracked through the system.


While having individual stock allocated to a specific bin is important, that doesn't necessarily constitute an efficient warehouse. Jim2 Warehousing recognises primary picking bins, reserves and bulk stock. Jim2 Warehousing saves considerable time by evaluating job requirements and suggesting the best bin to pick stock from. During the course of operations, stock consumed from the primary picking bins needs to be replenished and, when in Stock Transfer mode, Jim2 will nominate the preferred bin from which to transfer stock.


Stock management is assisted by a visual display of the warehouse, indicating what stock is allocated to individual bins, including bins that may be temporarily empty. Warehouse Management is a graphical interface within the Jim2 Stock object that enables you to see the physical layout of your warehouse at a glance, and the position of your stock bins. An example of this is shown below.
