Ikarus Ecosystem contains Ikarus TMS, Ikarus WMS, Ikarus Halal, Ikarus Education and more so let’s dive right into reviewing all of them!
What is Ikarus TMS?
In our times, increased shipping costs and users’ expectations make the question of seamless transportation highly significant. The importance of the question rises even further due to the heavy reliance of local transportation operations as well as global supply chains on solid logistics. With an intention to facilitate timely and cost-effective transportation, Prometeo Chain System offers businessmen the Ikarus TMS technology. The Track-Ikarus TMS is a transportational management system software that ensures a transparent and efficient shipment.
The TMS eliminates the need for costly IT infrastructure by storing shipment data in the cloud. Designed for complex logistics businesses, the Track-IKARUS covers various transportation management requirements. A standout feature is freight tracking, which is essential for organizations handling multiple cargoes and carriers. The TMS offers track and trace functionality, providing real-time visibility into all freight movements.
Moreover, all of the shipment data can be utilized for instant reporting to foster the key performance indicators (KPIs) of each user. Having access to the complete history of shipment in real time in the Ikarus TMS network makes it a great choice for entrepreneurs, who look forward to effective and convenient optimization.
What about Ikarus WMS?
An Ikarus WMS is a cloud-based platform that assists businesses in handling everyday warehouse chores more efficiently. This program monitors numerous processes from the entering of commodities until the time they leave distribution hubs. This makes Ikarus WMS an essential component of supply chain management, since it provides real-time visibility into inventory in warehouses in transit.
Picking, packing, resource consumption, and analytics are all supported by the single system of WMS. Additionally, Ikarus streamlines activities such as receiving, storing, shipping, and tracking goods through a single interface. It also interfaces with technologies such as bar code scanning, RFID tagging, robotics, and augmented reality wearables, as well as critical systems such as transportation management and ERP. As an IT company, for the comfort of our users we provide two Ikarus WMS versions: standalone and cloud-based, both of which are linked with the TMS.
Ikarus supports Halal market
In our times, the Halal market is thriving because of the growing Muslim population and the demand for high-quality Halal products. Nevertheless, this tendency instead of fostering Halal market, led to the development of fraud and counterfeiting. Ikarus Halal approaches to assist certifiers in increasing producer confidence and transparency by tackling it.
Key issues the Halal manufacturing experiences are:
Food Frauds: fraudulently labeling non-Halal products as Halal remains a significant problem, eroding consumer trust and compromising certification integrity.
Lack of Standardization: the absence of consistent global standards poses challenges for producers to determine compliance requirements, leading to confusion and violation of Halal requirements.
"Ikarus Halal" is a farm-to-table food traceability ecosystem on the blockchain that ensures to solve these 2 issues. Covering logistics, quality control, and supply chain data, it offers cost-effective tools to establish transparent livestock and fresh food supply information. This approach can potentially alleviate the mentioned challenges by enhancing authenticity and clarity within the Halal industry.
Ikarus solving academic issues and more…
Besides transportation and warehouse management, the possible application of Ikarus goes far beyond these spheres. Due to the fact that everything around has its own lifecycle, the potential usage and benefits of Ikarus seem limitless. To list some examples:
Education. There have been numerous cases when academic diplomas of higher education turned out to be fake or couldn't be used internationally. Thankfully, with the help of Ikarus, there could be a new extension, which would allow both educational institutions and students to check the accreditation of their documents worldwide. In addition, this kind of idea could be approved and supported by the government, to bring the use to the official level.
Brand items. In the current era of consumerism plenty of fake brand clothes, accessories and other items entered the market. With that being said, by storing all certifications regarding originality, used materials and ethical manufacturing in Ikarus, consumers as well as brand producers will be secure from counterfeit.
Everyday domestic duties. A wide range of devices that Ikarus supports also include essential household totalizers of water and electricity used. At this point, the whole check-ups for the monthly payments for consumed electric energy and water can be fully optimized, so that the need to personally check/report them to the governmental controller would simply disappear. Moreover, the overall computation of used resources by the households would be accurate, due to the cancellation of human factors in calculations.
In summary, what makes Ikarus outstanding?
