Winning in sales and marketing is only half the battle in business.
Between the point of sale and final product delivery exists a critical range of operations that move the product from its current location to the buyer. Those operations are collectively called fulfillment, and the efficiency with which they’re performed greatly affects the value of every order and ultimately the business as a whole.
A Warehouse Management System allows a business to take control of inventory and fulfillment operations to pick, pack, and ship with maximum efficiency.
Businesses performing fulfillment strive to pick, pack, and ship as efficiently as possible. The business needs complete information on products and their locations, virtually flawless inventory, and optimized picking, packing and shipping operations. The business needs to fulfill the maximum number of orders in the minimum amount of time. And it needs everything to run on schedule.
It needs a Warehouse Management System.
Utilized as a standalone application or as part of a larger Business Management System or ERP, a Warehouse Management System (WMS) provides staff the complete, accurate, up-to-date information that’s needed to operate a warehouse, stock and count inventory, and fulfill and ship orders.
A WMS can store details for millions of products and services; automate workflows for seamless warehouse operations; keep precise, real-time inventory counts while automatically managing replenishment; automatically determine optimal picking, packing, and shipping workflows; and automatically generate and transmit documents associated with orders.
