Whether you need TIMS in the branch, warehouse, and fill plant or at the loading docks and customer site, we put the power of TIMS in your pocket.
Real-time warehouse tracking and control allows you to quickly and easily perform inventory counts, pick inventory items for shipping and accurately receive goods from vendors.
TIMS offers a trio of powerful asset management tools with wireless connectivity:
Automate and streamline your orders and ensure correct picking with TIMS Software’s wireless RF Picking technology.
Replace manual count sheets with a real-time solution for faster and more accurate physical inventory counts in your warehouse. The system displays the item’s bin location, the quantity counted and system quantity.
Wireless receiving and restocking procedures speed up the entire process. Key in the P/O number and start scanning! In addition, you can print bar code price tags, receiving documents and auto fill backorders. Utilize this flexible tool with both vendor and warehouse transfer orders.
Scanning cylinders in the fill plant generates a wealth of production data. Easily plan production requirements with daily, weekly and monthly cylinder fill data. TIMS Cylinder Fill Plant makes sure you have accurate fill volumes…which means more accurate billing.
You can bar code and record lot numbers during the fill process. And, when you need to trace or do a recall, you can easily do so by bar code number. You can even generate reports to monitor volume loss ratios and accurately determine gas cost.
TIMS helps you handle truck loading and reconciliation with ease. Print delivery tickets, load sheets, DOT manifests and trip reports to experience full system convenience and simplicity for complete distribution and delivery operations.
Truck reconciliation is a key element for businesses demanding more accurate billing, stronger asset control and increased production. Scanning cylinders ensures accurate customer billing, which lends credibility to your business. So, when your trucks arrive back at the dock, integrated manifest documents help you reconcile trucks so you catch errors early on.
The result? A proactive dispute resolution process with more accurate information upfront on miscounted ships or returns. It also means less time solving customer differences later.
Truck reconciliation even prevents theft and provides an internal audit that fosters accountability for both drivers and warehouse staff alike. The built-in date and time stamps help you track cylinder movement through the various cylinder statuses of your user-defined workflow. Those same date and time stamps assist in identifying where the bottlenecks are, so you’ll have the information you need to improve your production process.
Record delivery of cylinders, hardgoods and rental equipment with electronic proof of delivery to eliminate disputes…which means no more guessing about your rental equipment and cylinder deliveries.
With instant access to the most current information, you’ll deliver equipment and superior customer service. Define routes, schedules, trucks, truck stock and drivers. And, route and delivery times are automatically displayed in Order Entry, making it easy to communicate delivery options to the customer.
You’ll see real-time pricing and dispatching updates, and be able to manage routes efficiently to maximize driver efficiency. You’ll also eliminate manual errors and duplicate entry with seamless integration to order processing. Because, we think accurate delivery, exchange and pickup are pretty important to your business.
Customer Site Tracking is an extension of Advanced Cylinder Management (ACM). It helps your customers track cylinders inside their facility and allocate cylinder rent by department through a web portal or mobile device. At the end of the month, the system automatically generates a cylinder rental bill broken down by customer and department—providing a smart, easy way to allocate cylinder rent across multiple departments.
Supplier Assisted Inventory Management (SAIM), or Tool Crib Management, is a streamlined approach to inventory management and order fulfillment.
Offering collaboration between you and your customers, you can manage inventory remotely with SAIM. Inventory is bar coded and kept readily available at your customer’s facility and reduced as needed. Items remain in your inventory and the customer is charged by usage.
Through TIMS, you can generate accurate invoices and replenish orders based on this demand information. Replenishment is completed by mutually agreed upon objectives for the customer’s inventory levels, fill rates, and transaction costs.
What a great way to keep your product on hand for your customers with continuous replenishment and visibility. With that kind of service and availability, why would they take their orders anywhere else?
