The omni-channel distribution trend coupled with a consequent rise in transaction volumes has made it imperative for enterprises to adopt Warehouse Management Solutions (WMS) to drive their operational efficiencies. WMS automates a range of functionalities that improve a distribution center’s efficiency by minimizing the operational costs of the entire supply chain. Advanced WMSs take it a step further by enabling enterprises with options like workforce optimization, automated data collection (ADC), and warehouse oriented analytics for cost-effective logistics operations.
Skyrocketing e-commerce sales volumes require WMSs that are more scalable, with functionalities to organize and oversee optimized distribution and fulfillment processes. Modern WMSs can be readily integrated with transportation software and other supply chain convergence systems to address the key challenges in warehouse management. An enterprise grade WMS is a potent combination of varied elements like a wireless network supported by radio frequency identification (RFID) technology for mobility, automated stock rotation, improved material handling efficiency, and overall agility. The introduction of WMSs has ultimately lead to an increased automation of tasks while allowing the organizations to better employ the efforts of their warehouse personnel on activities that change lead times and improve customer experience.
