August 18, 2014



MINNEAPOLIS, MN, August 18, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Appolis Inc., a Minneapolis based company and leader in Warehouse Management Solutions (WMS) and WilloWare Inc, a Chicago based company offering industry leading GP solutions, announced today the launch of its WithoutWire Warehouse WMS Dynamics GP Manufacturing solution enabling full automation of GP Manufacturing at a fraction of competitive prices. Those attending Microsoft GPUG this fall will witness the power of GP manufacturing for the production operator in the palm of their hand. Appolis in partnership with WilloWare is pleased to bring affordability to GP Manufacturing Clients that previously thought wireless automation of GP Manufacturing was too expensive. This innovative breakthrough means real-time visibility and traceability throughout their supply chain while driving their Material Requirements Planning (MRP).



Travis Smith, CTO/Founder at Appolis stated, "Clients have expressed their challenges to paper based tracking with multiple data entry steps of complex item/lot or serial tracking requirements. Our purpose is to automate all inventory transactions wirelessly, in real-time. By driving your Materials Requirement Planning (MRP) through our unique Appolis - WilloWare solution you can now realize GP Manufacturing's fullest potential!"



Brenner Klenzman, CEO of WilloWare stated, "MO Generator is a product that fits perfectly with WithoutWire to process parent and child MO Receipts or batched MO Receipts automatically. The thing that excites me most, beyond eliminating the duplicate data entry of complex item/lot information, is the paperless automation power of the wireless device in the palm of your production team's hand."



Affordable pricing of this Manufacturing module eliminates the heavy capital investments of traditional manufacturing automation deployments. The use of smartphones and tablets can further reduce the upfront commitment by as much as a 2/3rds in hardware costs associated with your WMS Manufacturing implementation. Experience the world's best user interface that iOS and Windows Embedded products have to offer for your GP Manufacturing experience.



The Appolis/WilloWare GP Manufacturing Solution Workflow in summary:

1. Create your Manufacturing Order (MO) in Dynamics GP

2. Release MO to our WithoutWire Warehouse WMS system

3. WithoutWire verifies that you have enough Raw Materials (RM) or initiates a Pick

4. From the Wireless device in the palm of your hand: Create Finished Goods (FG) via License Plate (LP) activation, Create a 'material issue transaction' or back-flush RM's against the MO

5. Write parent/child MO Receipts real-time back to GP via WilloWare

6. Replenish RM's JIT to Manufacturing

7. Create more FG's, back-flush RM's and Put-away to picking or overstock locations

8. Create Scrap at the end of the process

9. Time/Date stamp of transactions, by user, accounts for the Labor

10. Close out MO or leave it open until all production is accounted for

11. Drive your Material Requirements Planning (MRP)

12. Achieve Full Traceability for Recall and Brand protection!



Appolis WithoutWire and WilloWare MO Generator provide the ability to measure discrete or process manufacturing production in a timely and efficient manner. With Scrap and Labor tracking capability, a measurement of daily yield can be closely monitored.
