Press Release Summary: Warehouse Control System Evaluation Tool Provided by QC

Press Release Body: According the Jerry List, "QC Software has identified the trends
and patterns that make some companies more suited to a warehouse control system than
others. By simply answering ten key questions we are able to quickly discern if
there is a good match in WCS or if other solutions might better serve the
From systems currently used to manage the enterprise to technologies used for order
picking, the WCS Analyzer identifies core issues about the efficacy of warehouse
control systems. Current shipping methods and types of automated material handling
equipment further assist in clarification of WCS opportunities.
The ability to look at near future (next six months) growth and current use of a WMS
(warehouse management system) also provide a level of technology clarity.
QC Software is dedicated to providing a warehouse control system (WCS) when it is
needed and appropriate. The WCS Analyzer will help identify critical weaknesses in
an existing business system, and propose the types of solutions needed. The WCS
Analyzer is a tool developed exclusively by QC Software and only takes a few minutes
to complete. At the conclusion of the checkup, QC Software provides respondents with
a custom report.
Dropped connections and communication with host systems help to examine if there is
a weak link in the current system; whereas volume of orders per day and industry
sector shipping urgency also is assessed.
To complete the WCS Analyzer by QC Software, and receive a customized critical
analysis, look for the red magnifying glass at www.qcsoftware.com.

A checklist of WCS areas of expertise must include:
. Operations audits
. Supply chain strategy development and master planning
. Process analysis and optimization
. Location modeling, transportation, logistics, and distribution network analysis
. Inventory analysis and control
. Vendor/supplier collaboration
. Material handling equipment (MHE) requirements
. Analysis, specification development, and bid administration
. Warehouse management system (WMS) requirements
. Project management, systems integration, and implementation

WCS vendors must develop a strategic partnership with a manufacturing and
distribution firm in which there is a clear understanding of the organization's
unique shipping needs, and actively assist in reaching and measuring cost reduction
goals and service needs.

Warehouse control systems must address numerous challenges from multiple angles and
perspectives, but if these are met they can produce benefits including a greater
return on assets, increased operational capacity, reduced labor costs, increased
inventory turns, an increase in picking and shipping accuracy, shorter process cycle
times and improved customer satisfaction.

The WCS solutions provided by QC Software enables companies to streamline their
warehouse operations with the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry
ensuring increased corporate profitability.
