Project Services


At Barcode-IT, our aim is to make the process of designing and installing a warehouse management system as simple and hassle free as possible. Below we detail exactly how we guide our customers through the process of preparing for and implementing a Dexterity Warehouse Management System, so you know exactly what you're getting when you decide to choose a Dexterity WMS solution from Barcode-IT.


Design & Blueprint Consultancy

We will provide a design & blueprint service for your WMS project, which will typically start with a site visit to assess the warehouse environment and learn how you currently handle stock from goods in to despatch. At Barcode-IT we take time to understand your business and the challenges you face.


Designing your Dexterity warehouse management system involves the following steps:


  • We will analyse the systems you are working with, how you currently operate and the processes that need automation, streamlining and improving.


  • We will provide advice on warehouse best practice based on our many years of experience implementing Dexterity WMS for our customers - we have experience in many industry sectors


  • We can provide a professional wireless survey to determine the requirements for the WiFi network and provide a site survey report and installation plan - find out more by clicking on the menu to the left.


  • We work with you to determine the integration points required with any existing systems you may have, to provide a completely integrated and seamless solution. We have a wealth of experience with ERP and software integration.


  • We will investigate your current picking methods and recommend and improvements or practice changes that could improve efficiency and accuracy within your business, to save time, money and resources.


  • We investigate and analyse your existing barcode labels (if you have them). Based on 20 years experience we will be able to recommend and advise on barcode best practice.


The outcome of this design process is a project scope and outline project plan detailing objectives and providing a complete project costing and implementation schedule with realistic deadlines. If you decide to move forward, our professional project management team will work with you to make sure the project is delivered within the agreed timeframe and budget.



Implementation & Training

We will appoint a project manager to oversee the implementation of the project and to act as your main point of contact. The project manager will be responsible for the successful implementation of the entire project including all elements of the system, i.e. hardware, software and user training.

  • Use of Dexterity WMS software
