Distribution and Warehousing
The Lifeblood of Every Business
Any company that sells products and offers delivery services can automate and revolutionise the business
- Not trying to “boil the ocean”. Look at each challenge one at a time.
- Consider your “dream outcome” and tell the Zway planning team.
- Tell us systems you already have that work well. Keep them!
- ‘Piece by Piece’ company-wide integration and automation.
Whatever you do, DON’T try to specify more than one process at a time. Work in small segments and avoid those firms offering risky “ERP Installations”. Here are some typical problems Zway has already solved for other clients:
Finding quality stock to sell

You told Zway:
Too many marketplaces to co-ordinate
You told Zway:

Keeping track of stock across multiple sites
USING 3rd PARTY LOGISTICS PARTNERS ALONGSIDE YOUR OWN WAREHOUSING CAN BE DIFFICULT TO MANAGE.
When stock goes missing it is not just the cost of the stock you lose. The time it takes to properly account for stock is horrendous. This is time a smaller business cannot afford.
Zway’s automation of your warehouse and integrated 3rd party management makes stock tracking a breeze.
Zway Warehouse Management
- Add as many locations as you wish. 3rd party or self-run warehouses and stores
- Add as many sub-locations as you wish. Break your space into easy definable “Bins”
- Use QR codes and location services to track each stock item and scan to see status immediately.
- Every movement of stock is recorded with indelible history log.
- All historic records digitised, safely stored and easily accessible.
- Time saved due to, no longer needed, manual production and distribution.
- Use standard mobile devices off the shelf. No need for expensive hardware.
You told Zway:
Products, specifications, functions, pics and parts.
This is a problem you should not have
TOO MANY DIFFERENT PRODUCT LINES, CODES UPC’S, EAN’S AND PARTS THAT MAKE UP WHOLE PACKAGES?
Even a small product reseller can stock over 2,500 different items. Each item comes with it’s own guarantees, warranties and specification sheets.
Zway enables you to specify exactly what information you need to store and in what format. Then, if it changes, your forms are dynamic and you get to change them again if you wish. Stay well clear of applications designed for the mass market. these products were designed for all, but actually fit none.
