4 ways SAP Business One supports your warehouse operation processes

Manage stock in multiple warehouses, by dividing each one into multiple subzones, set up allocation rules, optimize stock movement and reduce picking times.
SAP Business One for warehouse operations supports 4 sublevels dimensions like zone, area, row, and shelf. Bin locations can be setup with up to 10 user defined attributes like size, weight, hazardous, frozen, etc.
Sublevel and bin location codes can be managed manually or automatically with a batch generation/update/delete function. Bin locations can be defaulted on a ‘per item’, ’per item group’ and ‘per warehouse’ basis.
Employees can define the warehouse layout and create bin locations with little effort. Storing items in individual or multiple bins make it possible for the user to find the items quickly and with ease.
