WMS Systems - Making an Impact on your Business
Anyone tasked with improving picking rates and accuracy in a warehouse definitely has a major challenge on their hands. The boss says you have to reduce delivery times, get more orders out of the door, as well as reducing picking errors and increasing inventory accuracy. Oh! and by the way you must also reduce warehouse costs at the same time. Good Luck!
So, that takes away the easy way out: hiring more staff, double checking picked orders, etc. in fact any additional processes that may slow down the operation are out.
The only answer is to work smarter with the same resources and staff and streamline every process with a smart technology - A WMS System.
Maybe your business is growing rapidly, you're adding more products to your portfolio and the paperwork system just can't handle the throughput. Have to missed fulfilling important orders because you're out of stock? Have you shipped the wrong items to your most important customer? Did orders just not get shipped on the promise date because you simply ran out of time on the day? These are common problems we see regularly, and all problems that can be solved with a smart WMS System like Dexterity WMS.
A WMS System is crucial in today's highly competitive markets. You have to be better than your competitors, better service, faster delivery. We all know if you're buying something for yourself on the internet you look for how quick you can get it, so delivery is the key factor. You get the order, pick it quick and ship it right, it needs to be that simple for success.
Lets be clear, WMS does not replace your ERP or Commercial Systems, it compliments them by managing the interaction between your commercial business operation and the warehouse. It provides real time data and drives the processes in the warehouse to deliver smooth workflow and accurate and faster order picking. a smart WMS System covers all warehouse disciplines from Goods In, Putaway & Locating Stock, through Stock Checks to Order Picking, Packing and Despatch with integrations into your Carrier partners.
So to come back to our original problem, you don't need extra staff or a bigger warehouse, just a smarter warehouse with a smart WMS system.
Implementing a WMS may seem like a daunting task so working with the right partner and choosing the right system is critical. Ultimately you will improve operational efficiency and productivity; including real time inventory and labour management, and maximise that all important customer satisfaction.
A WMS System is an investment in your future.
