Essentus International Inc has extended its Vision Suite applications with the addition of a new Warehouse Management System (WMS) module.

Vision WMS is a private labelled, fully featured warehouse management and inventory control system developed by a new Essentus alliance partner and supplied through Essentus. The company says it has been designed to meet the unique requirements of softgoods retailers and manufacturers, with a modular design that covers administration, inbound and outbound goods, and inventory control.

"The introduction of Vision WMS is the answer to our customers' needs. This product is highly scalable and provides for intelligent control and communication of logistics information as well as for the physical movement of products," stated Leslie Belcher, COO of Essentus International Inc.

Essentus will also offer the Vision WMS Factory Shipping Package software module. Features include delivery of PC-based or web-accessible software to each factory shipping location; scanning capabilities to identify the contents of each carton packed for shipment to a customer's warehouse; barcode label printing; and the ability to generate a manifest and create an ASN outbound file identifying shipment details.
