Affordable Software, Real Results

The automation of processes through a WMS offers companies undeniable advantages: optimizing the path of goods through the warehouse, avoiding material losses, maximizing storage capacity, eliminating communication errors, and reducing operational costs, to name just a few. With this, productivity increases — the better automated your system is, the more efficiently you can work. And the more efficiently you can work, the better poised you are to outstrip your competitors.

A WMS helps logistics managers face many challenges more efficiently — if the benefits detailed above weren’t enough to convince you, add increased inventory accuracy, better tracking of warehouse staff productivity, shortened receipt times, and increased agility in customer service to the list. And these benefits aren’t insignificant — companies that implement a WMS have been shown to enjoy the following results:

  • Increase in productivity on receipt between 30% and 40%.
  • Increase in storage productivity between 40% and 70%.
  • Increase in shipment productivity between 30% and 50%.
  • Increased productivity in order separation between 40% and 70%.
  • Increased inventory accuracy up to 99.99%.
  • Reduction in obsolete inventory loss between 40% and 60%.

With those statistics in mind, one thing is clear: when it comes to investing in a warehouse management system for your supply chain, it’s not a question of whether you can afford one — it’s a question of whether you can afford not to have one.
