Wave Reaction, Inc, is located in historic Galena, Illinois, and is a leading provider of web-based EDI, Supply Chain, 3PL, and custom software solutions for returnable container management. Wave Reaction provides returnable container management software and RFID tracking hardware used solely for reusable packaging solutions and green initiatives, to promote the environmental, safety, and economic benefits of reusable assets. Solutions focus on reducing overall costs by increasing asset visibility as they cycle through the supply chain, with an end-goal of providing companies with the necessary data to optimize delivery schedules and container count, reduce shrinkage and expedited freight charges, and eliminate manual entry errors.
Wave Reaction features two editions of their RCM solutions, customized to the needs of the client. The Standard Edition is the “out-of-the-box” version of the tracking solution. The core is the “Hands-Free” web application, an easy-to-use data repository and report generation engine. All tracking data from capture devices is securely stored, organized, and displayed on the website. This data can be entered manually, or automatically when the capture device receives it. Software for hand-held scanners, as well as Android-enabled mobile devices, is included in the solution.
The Enterprise Edition includes a layer of professional consulting to arrive at a more comprehensive container management solution. Each Enterprise solution will be different, depending on the needs of the company. Wave Reaction’s consultants have the expertise to begin implementation of initiatives such as return logistics optimization, freight optimization and load-building, evaluation of asset suppliers and 3PL carriers, identifying potential locations for new distribution facilities, and much more. The Enterprise Edition optimizes established supply chains, streamlining them to be as cost-efficient as possible.
Wave Reaction tracks more than 5,000,000 assets worldwide, and partners with some of the largest manufacturing companies in the country. The Wave Reaction website can be visited at wavereaction.com.
