ProRep’s External Data Interface Module enables ProRep to import data from other systems that capture transactional data. This includes warehouse management, pick-to-light, voice directed and time & attendance systems.
The External Data Interface Module can simultaneously work with data imported from multiple systems that are used for different purposes. For example, ProRep can import data from the following types of systems used in the same facility:
Clock-in, lunch and clock-out transactions from a time & attendance system.
Picking transactions from a pick-to-light or voice system
Put away, replenishment and other job transactions from an RF based WMS
Cartons loaded from a conveyor sortation system
An associate can use any or all of these systems during the same day. ProRep will sort all of the transactions into date and time order to get a complete sequential picture of the associate’s entire day. For a task that is not captured by any other system, an associate can use a ProRep kiosk or record the activity for key entry at the end of the shift.
With this module, ProRep can import data from virtually any software vendor’s system. There are no stringent input file requirements. ProRep needs only a flat file or any type of delimited file containing information about who did it, what was done, when it was done, how much was done and sometimes where it was done. An extensive set of data mining, logic and inference tools are included to turn a minimal amount of data into useful production information.
