Dexion RDS (Realtime Distribution System) is a fully fledged Warehouse Management System (WMS) and Warehouse Control System (WCS) platform that choreographs the physical and logical aspects of your distribution centre under a single umbrella.

It manages warehouse and distribution centre operations from receipt of goods, through processing, storage, order fulfilment and despatch in real-time.

RDS operates on a single platform, and provides a single interface to your current Enterprise Resource Planning System (ERP) or WMS.

This does away with multiple platforms for the varying functions within your warehouse. It is designed to complement your existing capabilities, thereby protecting existing capital investments, rather than trying to compete against or replace them.

RDS is modular in design so it provides maximum flexibility when building a solution. Dexion is able to shape RDS to fit the task, to be as large or small, simple or complex as the application requires.

There are almost endless combinations of generic RDS modules which enable a solution to be built which is tailored to your requirements.

This ensures that the solution design is not constrained by systems limitations, rather we are able to focus on satisfying the requirements of your business. It’s important to note that an entry level RDS solution is future-proof, providing flexible growth options.

The system enables you to add modules when new functionality is required.

Dexion RDS is web-based, so it’s accessible anywhere and anytime, wherever you have an internet connection. For example, it can be called up wirelessly on a tablet on the DC floor or even from the golf course.

The interface is friendly and graphic with the familiar simplicity of point-and-click control.

Integrated Command & Control (ICC) lets the operator monitor the system’s current state and performance while having the mobility to move throughout the centre.

In addition, RDS Visual gives you the at-a-glance overview to manage every physical task, arranging real-time information, with a friendly point-and-click interface, to reflect the key tasks operating within your distribution centre.

For instance, under ‘Receiving’ you can monitor inbound shipments, coordinate them for processing and put away, which helps you to set priorities and allocate staff.

Under ‘Picking’ you can keep a close eye on your entire work pool, ensuring the most efficient picking and resource allotment to meet despatch windows.
While under ‘Despatch’ you have complete control over the way product is sorted and loaded.

In the ongoing search for maximum efficiency, Dexion RDS constantly regulates field devices and sensors, host connectivity and data driven rules of materials handling equipment (such as conveyors or cranes) in real time.

At the same time, it manages and co-ordinates paperless technologies, such as barcode scanners, weigh scales, pick to light, voice and Radio Frequency (RF).
