A warehouse management system (WMS) links all the relevant warehouse operating processes together, managing all the flows and product statuses. With this in mind, the importance of the correct WMS selection is paramount.
The aim of the WMS is to control the inventory within the warehouse and “move” the products to the appropriate location to maximise picking productivity.
However, often customers have specific requirements which need to be taken into account in selecting an appropriate WMS.
These will include upstream integration in the ERP and into supplier portals, downstream integration into specific MHE technologies (e.g. automation, conveyor systems), as well as, specific process requirements to reflect customer channel needs – wholesale, retail, eCommerce, returns management.
The Logistics Business can help you to select the appropriate WMS package that will give the best overall business fit.
