BellHawk Online helps you fulfil orders on time by scheduling and tracking materials and operations in real time.

Real-time Track & Trace

Out of the box systems—ready to configure and use

BellHawk launched barcode tracking systems for NASA and USAF suppliers in 1989. Today many North American firms use BellHawk systems to make and ship orders on time. Smaller companies have unlocked growth and divisions of larger enterprises have transformed performance.

On-time operations

The systems track all jobs and material movements in real-time. BellHawk Online uses this data and artificial intelligence to schedule manufacturing and warehouse operations, also in real-time. This will help you deploy your resources to meet ever-changing order delivery dates and priorities.

Smart data capture

'Magic forms' help operators capture data on their terminals. The form adapts to the data as the user enters it. This minimises data entry—and avoids mistakes At the same time it ensures users record all necessary information, such as specific attributes for each type of material received.

Flexible configuration

BellHawk Online is ready to use once we have configured the system for you. This involves importing spreadsheets with your master data together with parameters, constraints and business rules. We suggest you start simple then extend. BellHawk's DEXBox makes it easy to exchange data with your business systems.

Bill Williams set out with BellHawk to track materials and then brought in simple production tracking. A year later he moved on to the full operations system to track work in progress and add demand driven scheduling.

2. BellHawk Online Base Systems

MATERIALS TRACKING and SIMPLE PRODUCTION TRACKING are starter systems. They may be all you need.

REALTIME OPERATIONS adds many more functions. It is the basis for full manufacturing, warehousing, installation and traceability systems.

WMS WAREHOUS MANAGEMENT options work with MATERIALS TRACKING or REALTIME OPERATIONS.

The WMS tracks purchase orders, customer ship orders, picking and packing, and shipping of containers and nested containers. The label printing on demand option ensures barcodes on containers carry the same data as ASNs.

3. Warehouse Options

The BellHawk Online WMS option adds a warehouse management system to a MATERIALS TRACKING or REALTIME OPERATIONS base system.

The WMS bundle consists of four modules: PURCHASE ORDER, SHIP ORDER, PICK and SHIPPING DOCK. Each is available separately. DIRECTED PICKING and INVENTORY AUDIT are the two extra warehousing options.
