1. Why Invest in Warehouse Management Software?
Warehouse management software is a true business investment, not a luxury. A good WMS can mean the difference between a year in the black or a year in the red.
You already invest in property and equipment, in people and in training. If you’ve decided that it’s time to invest in work processes in your warehouse, then you need to consider a warehouse management software system.
2. What are the Benefits of a WMS?
Increased Inventory Accuracy: Warehouse management systems help you keep accurate track of your inventory. When you don’t know what quantity of a given product you have on hand, you’re in a position to lose money. Not enough stock? Backorders can cost you thousands in cancellations or delays. Too much stock? You’re wasting valuable shelf space stocking items that no one is buying. From overstock to deadstock to shortages, inventory accuracy is important to your bottom line. Knowing what you have improves order accuracy and customer happiness.
Accurate Order Fulfillment: When you utilize an automated warehouse management system to fulfill customer orders, you not only fill orders faster, but you also want to drastically reduce the number of errors. Errors are an inevitable part of warehouse order fulfillment, but a warehouse management system can cut those errors in half, or even better. Few mistakes mean fewer customer complaints and fewer returned orders. Reductions in order returns have an obvious financial benefit, but can you even put a price on happier customers?
