Softline Accpac, part of the Sage Group, a leading business management software provider, has announced a major new release of Sage ERP X3’s warehouse management system (WMS) – Sage Geode.

Sage ERP X3 is a best of breed ERP solution for the midmarket, and this new release brings greater warehouse and logistics optimisation to all companies with distribution and logistics services requirements, says Jeremy Waterman, MD of Softline Accpac.
“Sage Geode version 6.1 provides the tools to process, streamline and optimise the management of the warehouse, enhancing the quality and reliability of logistics flows, providing transaction traceability, maximising warehouse floor space and improving productivity.
"As a module of Sage’s global ERP solution, the warehouse management system can be deployed across multiple sites using Sage ERP X3,” says Waterman.
As well as many other logistical features, such as transparent transaction tracking both inside and outside the warehouse, people movement and space optimisation, key new enhancements of Sage Geode v6.1 include:
* Directive radio frequency (RF) and resource management – system tasks are directed to RF terminals based on the location of the user and the type of equipment being used. This provides resource management functionality to help improve productivity within the warehouse.
* Material management – stock can now be managed in both consumer units and stock units. This improvement ensures accurate warehouse management of raw materials.
* Integration – new connectors have been introduced for seamless integration between Sage Geode and Sage ERP X3.
Sage Geode v6.1 is available from July 2011, and follows the recent announcement of Sage ERP X3 Version 6.2 in May which delivered hundreds of module improvements.
“Along with the announcement of Sage ERP X3 v6.2, this further integration of Sage Geode into Sage ERP X3 and the solution enhancements it brings are part of our aim to build on our product quality," says Emmanuel Obadia, senior VP, enterprise products, Sage ERP X3.
"This will provide our customers with the best possible and most complete user experience, and allow them to benefit from major business improvements through the effective implementation of our ERP system.”
