Warehouse Management Systems Can Benefit SMB’s
A well designed WMS is affordable and rapidly deployable. Your Warehouse Management System (WMS) should provide continuous tracking and visibility into your operation, as well as improve productivity, increase accuracy, reduce inventory shrinkage and improve customer satisfaction. Skill sets and expertise between WMS providers varies greatly so you need to investigate and examine these carefully because you will need a software vendor to be your business partner and to offer long‐term viability. Choose an application where you won’t need to purchase more functionality than you need today, yet provide a straightforward and flexible upgrade path for the future.
greatly reduce the amount of time employees currently spend figuring out what to do next. Adding a WMS will reduce, not eliminate, currently paper‐driven processes. Productivity improvements will allow employees to spend less time moving paper, and more time being productive. While there is no set timeframe, you can expect an ROI without a detailed cost/benefit analysis, the typical time for return on investment will be 6 to 18 months.
