Too Small for WMS?

Too Small for WMS Systems

If your business is a small to medium size operation (SME) then you may consider a WMS System is out of reach, its too complex, its too expensive, too difficult to implement, its only for big companies and distribution centres. Sound familiar? These are questions we come across all the time. The real question is what do these big companies have to control that you don't, well nothing really. Whether your turnover is in the low millions or billions, regardless of the size of your operation the aim is the same : Warehouse Control. You need control of the warehouse as much as the largest companies. WMS Systems are a sure fire way of delivering this control.

In today's modern business world of eCommerce, demanding faster delivery times and social media connectivity, a small business can have the market presence to match their bigger competitors in terms of customer service. In fact better customer service can be the key to business growth. With the right systems in place to help streamline the warehouse and delivery operation you too can compete against the bigger players.

Ask yourself some key questions about your operation:

  • Can you process inbound stock deliveries quickly and accurately?

  • Can you putaway and locate stock in the most efficient way to ensure consolidation?

  • Can you locate stock received based on storage rules?

  • Can you guide pickers to the right locations and stock based on rules for FIFO, Batch Control?

  • Can you guide order picking to make best use of staff and picking travel times?

  • Can you manage and audit all stock counts and changes so that your stock view is always accurate?

  • Can you get accurate real-time location-based stock figures for all the products you store?

  • Do you have a slick integrated despatch process to save time with Carrier bookings?

If you answered yes to any of these questions above (and there are a lot of other questions you could be asking) then you would benefit from a WMS system no matter what your size.
