Dematic iQ Capabilities

Performance Execution, Visibility, and Optimisation

From a functionally rich Warehouse Execution System for real-time facility optimisation, to analytics to monitor and manage operations, to asset and maintenance management, Dematic iQ is the software solution you need for complete control.

Warehouse Execution System (WES)

Dematic iQ is a robust WES that can manage all aspects of your operations from receiving to shipping. It combines robust functionality to plan and coordinate efficient routing of product through a maze of automation (typically found in a Warehouse Control System - WCS) as well as rich functionality to optimise manual and labour intensive activities in each area of the warehouse (typically found in a Warehouse Management System - WMS). Dematic iQ WES helps you get orders out the door quickly, efficiently, and accurately.

Preventive Maintenance: Automate pre-defined schedules or manually generate orders to keep equipment running optimally. Built-in forecast reporting provides load balancing and labour management.

Asset Management: Manage equipment, assets and corresponding data. Include file attachments, warranty information, nameplate data, inspection and preventive maintenance information, spare parts, and custom fields.

Inspections: Build, schedule, and perform custom inspections including quality assurance, safety inspections, compliance audits, customer surveys, and meter readings. Interact with other records using predefined actions. For example, equipment data can be modified to order corrective work orders if an inspection is failed.

Inventory: Fully manage materials, storeroom, purchasing, and vendors. Track item and shipping costs, ordering and approval capabilities, and storeroom minimum and maximum levels for on-hand counts.

Metering: Extract, consolidate, and deliver data directly from existing monitoring systems. Be alerted to current issues or trending data through a single dashboard.

Reporting & Dashboards: Make informed decisions with direct visibility into operational activities. Reports capture data from asset data, financials, and KPIs in professional grids or graphs.

Mobile: Enable field workers to receive process, approve, and complete work with time and material posting. Inspections, inventory, physical counts, and asset management are all available in a web-based platform or as an installable Android application.
