Use of Warehouse Management Systems (aka WMS Software) have grown dramatically over the last decade … and for good reason. Whether you run a small warehouse or a large and highly complex distribution center, WMS software simplifies the movement of inventory through your facility.
From picking, packing, and shipping to purchasing, receiving and put-away, you’ll automate your supply chain and get product from suppliers to your customer’s on-time, every time when you work with the warehouse management pro’s at RKL eSolutions who can help you:
- Optimize warehouse space and layout so pickers fill more orders with fewer trips
- Leverage RFID technology to collect data faster, reduce labor, and make manual data entry errors (and charge-backs) a thing of the past
- Double, or even triple, your transaction volume without adding staff
- Reduce lead times, turn inventory more frequently, and blow your competitors away
A warehouse management system (WMS) is a software solution that manages and automates the location and movement of inventory while streamlining the supply chain fulfillment process from a manufacturer or wholesaler to a warehouse, retailer, and/or store shelf.
WMS software comes in a variety of types and implementation methods, depending on the size and nature of your business. WMS can be run as stand-alone systems or integrated with the core inventory and supply chain modules of your Sage ERP system.
The primary benefits of implementing WMS software include:
- Reduced labor costs and increase throughput with speed and automation
- Improved inventory accuracy with
bar codesand scanners
- Improved inventory flexibility and responsiveness
- Decrease errors in picking and shipping goods
- Enhanced customer service as a result of all of the above
- Real-time view of inventory activities like orders, shipments, receipts and movement of goods
Some of the core features of any good Warehouse Management System would include:
Warehouse design – enables you to customize workflow and picking logic to make sure that the warehouse is designed for optimized inventory allocation.
Inventory tracking – enables use of advanced tracking systems, including radio-frequency identification (RFID), automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) and barcode scanners to make sure that goods can be found easily when they need to move.
Receiving and put-away – organized and automated inventory put-away and retrieval for optimal picking/put-away speed and performance.
Picking and packing – including zone picking, wave picking and batch picking to achieve efficiency.
Labor management – helps warehouse managers monitor workers’ performance by using key performance indicators (KPIs) that indicate workers who perform above or below standards.
