Warehouse Management Software Is Not Enough
Warehouse management is a challenging task. The supply chain has to move efficiently throughout the operation from receiving to distribution but it breaks and reconfigures like a kaleidoscope in the process. The shifting patterns of orders and distributions are beautiful when it all works together but a nightmare when something happens to clog and delay the movement of inventory.
Software can greatly enhance the task of warehouse management. With the right software, all the functions during receipt, hold, and distribution can be monitored and simplified. Even warehouse layout, productivity reporting, and workflow management are within a well-designed software’s capability. When choosing warehouse management software, look for these abilities:
- Warehouse layout tools, including bin assignment and asset management
- Advanced shipping notification and EDI compatibility
- Appointment scheduling for receipts
- Handheld wireless capability for efficient pick, pack and ship
- Exceptional WMS Software
- Bulk, pre-pack and break-pack capabilities
- Multiple pick, pack and ship methods, including precise status tracking
- Cross-dock processing for inter-store transfers
- Wave-based distribution for wholesalers
- Real-time warehouse status and productivity reporting
