With Oracle SCM Cloud our products are improved continuously. We release new capabilities throughout the year, and here's what our warehouse management system has in store with Version 9.0.

The latest release includes yard management, multi-field barcode scanning, ICS-based integration with Oracle Inventory Management Cloud, and improved extensibility with the addition of new REST Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Aside from functional and integration enhancements, get ready to experience a more seamless user experience, as well as WMS Cloud now supporting additional languages and time zones. You’ll find a list of new features and capabilities here.  

Some of the new features available include:

  • Yard Management: Offers organizations inventory visibility into trailers and their contents in the yard. You will be able to expedite unloading high priority trailers and shipments needed for order fulfillment.
  • Barcode Scanning: Allows processing of multi-element 1D barcodes and 2D barcodes.
  • Improved User Experience: A new browser-based interface look and feel simplifies the user experience.
  • Solution Extensibility: Allows customers and partners to build customized extensions to standard cloud-based WMS capabilities using REST web service application programming interfaces
  • Oracle Inventory Management Cloud Integration: Oracle Integration Service (ICS) based integrations to Oracle Inventory Management Cloud for inbound logistics, inventory operations and outbound fulfillment.
  • Global Support: Now supporting 10 additional languages and 9 additional time zones for user display and transactions.

Yard Management
Yard management gives organizations better inventory visibility to trailers and their contents in the yard. It allows companies to monitor the movement of trucks and trailers in their manufacturing facility, warehouse, or distribution center. The introduction of yard locations will allow you to check-in appointments to receiving dock doors or new yard locations.

Most transportation and warehouse management systems do not have capabilities to provide status of goods in trailers and have not yet been received at the warehouse. They are unable to provide insight into trailers in the yard, potentially creating fulfillment delays caused by limited visibility. Oracle WMS Cloud yard management capabilities makes it easier to locate shipments in trailers to expedite unloading high priority trailers and shipments needed for order fulfillment.

Multi-field Barcode Scanning
You can now scan and process multi-field 1D and 2D barcodes in RF transactions. Configure and manage multi-field barcodes and define custom barcode classes, and define application identifiers and delimiters for elements like LPN, Item, Lot, Expiration Date, and Quantity. These additional features provide a higher degree of accuracy, improve productivity, and maximize customer operational efficiencies.

Improved User Experience
The new update aligns the Oracle WMS Cloud look and feel of the browser-based screens with Oracle SCM Cloud. This includes the login page, home screen, application colors and icons. Users will also have more flexibility in configuring the RF user interface menus, allowing you to create menus and sub-menus in the RF. This reduces the time it takes to navigate through transactions and improves productivity.

Solution Extensibility
REST web services APIs allow customers and partners to build custom extensions on their own timeline and allow faster performance and reliability. The addition of REST web service APIs improves extensibility and enables customers to customize WMS Cloud for their specific business and industry needs, saving them time and money.

Oracle Inventory Management Cloud Integration
The introduction of Oracle Integration Cloud Service (ICS)-based Oracle WMS Cloud and Oracle Inventory Management Cloud integrations will allow customers to implement more rapidly for inbound logistics, inventory operations, and outbound fulfillment. This enables Oracle ERP and SCM Cloud customers to implement source-to-settle and order-to-cash flows at an accelerated pace.

Global Support
Oracle WMS Cloud is now available in 10 new languages including Traditional Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Thai, and Turkish. With the latest release, WMS Cloud also supports 9 additional time zones including are Arabia Standard Time (Asia/Riyadh), Spain Time (Europe/Madrid), Portugal Time (Europe/Lisbon), Germany Time (Europe/Berlin), Australia/Brisbane Time, (AEST), Australia/Adelaide Time (ACST), Australia/Melbourne Time (AEST), Australia/Perth Time (WST), and Australia/Sydney Time (AEST).
