Indicators that you should upgrade your WMS Reply:0| View:149
When a client contacts us with a request to evaluate an existing WMS, most often we identify the following indicators that it’s time for an upgrade.
Inability to meet ever-changing customer needs. As technology advances, customer requirements grow, and warehouse processes get more complex, you might decide to modify your warehouse management processes or provide additional services. However, doing so requires tailored solutions that may either not be available on the market or may not integrate well with your existing WMS, making your business unable to meet all your customers’ needs.
Poor user experience. It often happens that logistics companies use several integrated third-party modules to create an all-in-one system to cover warehouse operation needs. Or companies start to use a WMS that isn’t tailored to their specific warehouse processes and established staff workflow. Both cases lead to frequent human errors and long employee onboarding.
Software rigidity. Most aging logistics software has a monolithic architecture that doesn’t allow the system to scale with additional modules. This significantly hinders your ability to improve warehouse productivity.
Disparate business processes. Most ready-made WMS solutions can’t properly integrate with other systems. The lack of data exchange between systems reduces warehouse efficiency and complicates supply chain operations.
Poor data management. A WMS’s inability to provide real-time data and accurate reporting leads to the inability to identify flaws and ensure proper resource planning. However, if you properly configure your WMS with warehouse equipment and set up data collection channels and analytics, your problems with poor data management will be solved.
Depending on the specifics of your warehouse, the arguments for optimizing your WMS may not be obvious. To understand what exactly is going wrong, at Yalantis, we start by analyzing your existing system to find stumbling blocks to growth. Once we identify them, we come up with solutions. Below, we share common solutions to the above-mentioned problems.
