A Warehouse Management System (WMS) is crucial to improving the overall efficiency of an organization’s warehouse operations. From shipping, to receiving, to inventory control, a system such as this can completely revamp and streamline every process within the warehouse.
Warehouse management software packages can be totally personalized to meet the specific requirements of firms large and small. Through the integration of a warehouse management system with a wireless network, mobile computers, and voice picking applications, you can essentially expand your business to mobile employees while boosting operational efficiencies and improving customer service.
Here are a few of the aspects of your business that can be effectively streamlined with a comprehensive warehouse management system:
• Receiving – Get in-depth knowledge about the shipments that have been delivered, but haven’t yet made it to their final destination.
• Inventory stock – You’ll be able to ensure that items at low stock levels are placed in cue to be put away first, which can lower the impact of items that are out-of-stock and reduce inefficient fulfillment processes.
• Routing – You’ll always be able to keep tabs on the location of all inventory. Workers can be routed to the right location where they can set up their picks in the right order to lower travel time, and make the number of orders picked each day more efficient.
• Picking – Error-proofing and productivity can be improved in the picking process. Employees can get their picks on mobile devices that routes them to the appropriate areas. Items can be scanned when picked to verify that the appropriate item has been picked, and in the right amount.
• Packing – The accuracy of each order that’s been picked can be ensured, and material costs can be minimized by identifying the appropriately-sized shipping boxes.
• Shipping – Every order can be ensured for proper packaging and that they are sent to the right destination on time.
• Avoid delays – Your company can avoid experiencing delays in gaining access to data in the system if it has been entered late. You can also avoid inaccurate information, mis-shipments, late invoices, and challenges in locating items as they’re moved about in the warehouse.
