A Warehouse Management System can automatically keep inventory levels optimal.
The business can set rules in the WMS for Minimum Reorder Points, Reorder Quantities, and Material Requirements Planning. When the thresholds are met, the WMS alerts the business that it's time to replenish.
These replenishment rules can also be set up on a per-warehouse basis. So if it's your business rule to always have 100 widgets at every warehouse, you can make sure every warehouse always has 100 widgets. The Warehouse Management System will know when widgets go below the threshold and can automatically order more.
If a supplier runs out of a product and can't immediately deliver your order, a Warehouse Management System still makes the process easy to manage. The WMS can automatically track backorders to provide all the details needed about when the inventory will be replenished.
The Warehouse Management System knows when items are needed to keep operations running smoothly.
