WMS warehouse management system: integration with INNI video analytics systems

Managing a large warehouse is a complex task that requires careful planning and precise organization of all interdependent processes. In modern logistics hubs, it is fundamentally impossible to achieve effective control and management without the implementation of a wms system based on complex specialized software. During the operation of the warehouse, many problems arise that must be solved to ensure efficient operation and minimize losses:

  1. One of the main options is incoming and outgoing goods  control. It is necessary to monitor the movement of goods in the warehouse, check their quantity and quality, as well as prepare documents in a timely manner. With a large number of operations, this can cause serious problems, but the implementation of WMS successfully copes with these difficulties.

  2. Accounting for storage locations. Another problem is accounting at the places where goods are stored. It is necessary to properly place goods in the warehouse to ensure their preservation and ease of access. With a large number of products and storage locations, this can become a difficult task.

  3. Inventory is a check of the actual availability of goods in the warehouse. It is needed to ensure accuracy of accounting and to identify possible losses. With a large number of goods, taking inventory can require a lot of time and resources.

  4. Ordering is the process of assembling goods according to customer requests. With a large volume of orders, this is a time-consuming and tiring task.

In addition to the listed problems, other issues arise every day in large warehouses, related to personnel management, control of the operation of warehouse equipment, security, and protection of closed areas. Modern technologies and methods of warehouse management are used to solve the entire complex of tasks:

  • implementation of wms (warehouse management system) using information systems;

  • wms address storage;

  • automation of warehouse operations;

  • introduction of bar coding and other technologies for labeling goods (for example, RFID);

  • optimization of warehouse planning;

  • the use of robotic equipment for placing goods on racks and making orders for shipment.

The use of these technologies makes it possible to increase the efficiency of the warehouse, reduce costs and minimize risks.

WMS system Qguar PRO

Among the many WMS warehouse management systems, the Qguar WMS Pro software package developed by the Polish company Quantum Software is rightfully considered one of the best solutions for large logistics hubs. This powerful software is intended primarily for warehouses with a very large number of goods and warehouse operations that serve many suppliers and recipients.

The warehouse accounting system wms Qguar Pro includes a colossal set of special functions, which can be used to solve any specific tasks of warehouses of various scales. The warehouse program Qguar Pro uses innovative solutions in the field of information and logistics technologies. An important feature of this wms warehouse system is the wide possibility of integration with many types of modern external devices, which brings the product to the top of the world's leading solutions.

Integration of the video analytics module into the WMS warehouse management system

Despite all the advantages of the warehouse program wms Qguar WMS Pro, the potential of this powerful software complex is far from fully revealed. INNI specialists managed to develop the idea by creating a specialized integration module that significantly increases the functionality of the wms Qguar Pro warehouse system.

The integration of the video analytics module into the WMS warehouse management system can significantly improve the efficiency of all processes:

  1. Improvement of warehouse security. The integration of video analytics with the wms warehouse management system allows you to observe what is happening in the warehouse in real time, identify incorrect or dangerous actions of employees, and also promptly respond to incidents or unauthorized access.

  2. Optimization of warehouse processes. The video analytics system can analyze the flow of goods and vehicles, read the numbers of cars and railway cars, and record the arrival/departure time. The implementation of wms alone will not cope with such a number of tasks.

  3. Stock monitoring. Intelligent video surveillance in combination with the wms program allows you to automatically monitor empty shelves, which makes it possible to quickly replenish stocks.

  4. Optimization of technological processes. By analyzing the video stream, it is possible to identify errors and disadvantages, determine the productivity of each employee and suggest improvements in staffing or working hours optimization.

  5. Reduction of losses and improvement of accounting of goods. Video analytics can help detect lost goods and improve accounting accuracy by automatically monitoring the movement of goods. In the event of disputes, warehouse owners can receive a full report on the operation, including video recordings, time-stamped photos, cargo name, batch number, and name of the official responsible for receiving/shipping.

  6. Automation of processes and decision-making based on data. The integration of video analytics allows you to collect large volumes of data about warehouse processes. This data can be used to train artificial intelligence systems to automatically make decisions and predict potential problems.

  7. Improving customer service. Thanks to the more accurate and efficient operation of the wms system for the warehouse, the logistics hub can improve the speed of cargo processing, the formation and delivery of orders, which will favorably affect the overall quality of customer service.

The integration of video analytics into the WMS warehouse management system is a revolutionary step in optimizing warehouse processes and increasing efficiency in warehouse space management. The development of video surveillance and analytics technologies allows not only to control the safety of the warehouse, but also to effectively use data to optimize all its processes.

By integrating video analytics with WMS, it is possible to implement instant monitoring of warehouse operations, automation of order selection and packing processes, as well as optimization of product movement routes. Analysis of the video stream allows you to identify bottlenecks in warehouse logistics using heat maps, determine the most effective placement of goods and improve the overall productivity of the warehouse. In addition, the integration of video analytics in WMS contributes to a more accurate forecast of warehouse needs, which in turn minimizes storage costs and increases the overall efficiency of inventory management.

The integration of INNI video analytics into WMS warehouse management opens up new opportunities for companies to improve warehouse efficiency, optimize processes and reduce costs. This innovative solution not only provides a safer environment in the warehouse, but also provides data for more informed decisions. As a result, the integration of video analytics with a WMS system is a key tool for companies seeking to optimize their warehouse operations and improve the management of all aspects of logistics.
