How to Select WMS? – Part One

Are you on the hunt for a new warehouse management system? If you make the right choice now you could benefit from an improved inventory visibility, improved order fulfilment and automate all of your data collection. It’s never an easy job to decide the right WMS system for you so over the next few days we’ll be sharing our tips on how to make the perfect choice to improve and optimise the operation of your warehouses.

Before we begin let’s take a look at some of the benefits that come with having an up-to-date WMS.
  • Automatic replacements
  • Better responsiveness
  • Customer service improvements
  • Improved accuracy across reporting
  • Inventory accuracy
  • Labor management efficiency
  • Reduced paperwork
  • Return reductions
  • Picking error reduction
  • Remote data visibility
  • Stock transparency
As all WMS require capital investment you must be certain you’re making the right decision and that the business benefits are worthwhile and achievable. Energy, commitment and enthusiasm are also required from the entire warehouse team and management so the new WMS is set up correctly, used effectively and optimised on a regular basis.

Return tomorrow when we’ll be looking at the first four steps in how to select your WMS.
