Three reports your warehouse managers should have on their ERP dashboard

Being a warehouse manager requires a person to juggle balls, torches, and chainsaws all day long. The only sure thing is that someone will toss a sword at you sometime during the day. But…your warehouse ERP can help. Here are a couple of ideas that will ease the pressure (a little).

1. Orders due to ship today and not yet in the warehouse

If the items on any order are at hand, one can always add a body or two and get them boxed, labeled and shipped. It is the orders that are not on hand that cause stress. A dashboard that identifies those items you still need is helpful. And if the dashboard also shows where they are now or were at last report, you also know who to call for a right-now status. Remind that person the item they are still working on needs to ship today and suggest they contact the salesperson immediately if it won’t get to the warehouse in time to ship today. If the item is a purchased part, have the same conversation with the buyer.

2. PO receipts due, and which ones are urgent

When the UPS driver leaves a large pile of boxes on the dock, they all look the same. Every one is brown cardboard with a packing slip inside an envelope. The one that people on the other side of the building have been impatiently waiting for does not glow in the dark and there is no spotlight shining on it. The majority of those boxes have parts and material that are needed for a job isn’t scheduled for a few days yet. They can sit until the urgent ones are handled. This ERP dashboard would show purchase orders due immediately, or within the next few days that are urgently required for a job or customer shipment. Look at all the boxes in the pile and find those few first and then process them right away. This dashboard depends on up-to-date purchase orders and operations that actually follow the production schedule.

3. Operational efficiency

Measuring warehouse efficiency is difficult. The shop often sees all their work engineered to the minute and knows the engineers have worked hard to make the employees efficient and effective. The warehouse often does not have that support. Ask the engineers to develop standards for unpacking and processing a PO receipt. Learn how long it should take to kit and deliver materials for a production job. Now use your dashboard to measure your employees work against these standards. Gut feel that everyone is working well is not enough. You might find you really have too many people when they all learn to work to standards – who knows?



Oracle FORMS migration TO APEX Services


Oracle APEX applications are usually created for business purposes – for data browsing, editing and analyzing. Developers of APEX applications focus mainly on the essential functionality, pushing the appearance of the application into the background. This is a strategic mistake!

Functionality and appearance of an application should always go hand in hand. Applications that work well but look clumsy are considered poor by the users. In such a case, any changes in forms, processes or validations are of no use – a good theme is the only solution

Oracle Application Express (APEX)

It helps you Build applications using only your web browser.

Application Express enables you to design, develop and deploy beautiful, responsive, database-driven applications using only your web browser. See how you can take advantage of this fully-supported, no-cost feature of the Oracle Database.

Oracle FORMS Migration TO APEX

Oracle Apex is now on version 4 and has matured and developed as a product over the last few years. While Apex can’t do everything that Forms can do, it certainly matches a fair proportion of the Forms functionality.  It also provides a much cheaper method of delivering the interface to the user as you don’t need the expensive Application Server/ Weblogic server license.

While there is an Oracle migration tool, it doesn’t do the whole job and it’s a significantly more complex conversion than upgrading to a newer version of Forms.  This means that it is more expensive and requires more testing, but with the change in licence requirements, it might still be a cheaper option.


  1. A maintained and Oracle supported platform.
  2. A simpler environment in production with less costly Oracle infrastructure licencing.
  3. Protection of your investment in your pl/sql code which is taken straight across into the Apex environment
  4. Easy to maintain and update.


  • Cost Effectiveness of Oracle Apex Technology (which is FREE), and can be installed in your existing Oracle Database or the freely available Oracle XE Database.
  • Application Access using Oracle Apex is suitable for Intranet, Internet and Extra-net deployment through the use of Web Browser ONLY with NO client software, WebUtil and/or Java Plug-In needed for development, deployment or run-time purposes.
  • Simpler Deployment mechanism using ONLY one Application Technology Stack on a 2-tier architecture offered by Oracle Apex makes it easier, cheaper and faster to get your applications implemented to meet your business requirements, and coupled with our Application Foundation Framework; it will be excellent at building custom or bespoke web-based applications.
  • The need to integrate with other web applications and functionalities may not be possible with the existing Oracle Forms & Reports applications.
  • The need to have more control over the information that is displayed & generated through various Report output formats (HTML, PDF, CSV, XML, TXT) is simpler with Oracle Apex.
  • Easier to find Oracle Resources with PL/SQL, HTML, CSS & JavaScript knowledge, and enhanced functionalities in Apex 4.0 & higher versions simplifies Application Development even more.

With Migration Methodology, we migrate your application(s) and customize it to suit your requirements.


BrightStar’s migration team are skilled at using both the Forms migration tools and the Oracle Apex development environment so you achieve a quality result in the minimum time.

The methodology we use is based on a stage, tasks and deliverables model. The migration is split into 4 stages, Planning, Preparation, Conversion and Testing. Each stage is broken down into a number of tasks. At the end of each stage there are predefined deliverables to be produced and signed off. This guarantees that the stage has been fully and correctly completed before work is commenced on the next one.

Test and Try our capabilities

We offer a Trial Evaluation Service (AT 50% Discounted Cost) to you for an evaluation of the Professional Quality & Speed of our Conversion/Migration/Transformation processes as mentioned above.

BLOCKCHAIN The Ultimate Disruption In The FINTECH Industry

bc3.pngInsurechain – Blockchain Technology

Insurechain is a solution that facilitates the automation of premium calculations, the management of appraisals and the settlement of certain types of claims, ensuring end-user transparency.


Over the years, complexity and costs related to the management of insurance processes have undermined the profitability of companies and inhibited the distribution of innovative insurance products.

The world of insurance is governed by countless processes, requiring enormous investments in terms of financial and human resources.

Above all, this complexity hinders the development and dissemination of so-called micro policies, in other words those insurance products with low premiums and limited duration.

All companies are therefore searching for solutions to increase the efficiency of their actuarial, verification and claim settlement processes, so as to ensure the reduction of associated costs and guarantee the best possible end-user experience.

Focus On

The Insurechain technology solution consists of a web application with a software component (smart contract) that is published and executed on the Ethereum blockchain.

The smart insurance contract includes the rules associated with setting the premium and the settlement verification. Both functionalities are coded in the Solidity language. The verification of reimbursement conditions is based on the services of an “oracle”, whose task is to certify the corresponding weather data, ensuring authenticity and lack of tampering. Finally, the smart contract displays the status and progress of the policy on the blockchain, without disclosing any sensitive customer data.



Blockchain as a Solution

  • All that is required is a web portal or a smartphone to underwrite, activate and verify the status of a policy.
  • The insurance contract is generated in the form of a smart contract and published on the blockchain, rendering the policy rules transparent.
  • The smart contract independently verifies the contract conditions by drawing upon multiple verified sources of data.
  • In the event that claims are ascertained, the software contract automatically settles or authorises the corresponding claim payments.
