Warehousing and distribution can be a complex business impacted by volume, customer specific requirements and differing internal and external sales/distribution models. These complexities mean logistics process becomes an integral part of the customer service offering – right product, right place and right time. Imperative to the success of this offer is the design of systems that deliver positive outcomes adding value to the business strategy.
A key enabler to the warehouse is the warehouse management system (WMS). A well designed and implemented WMS provides a flexible, real-time inventory management tool for most warehouse operations. Interfacing the WMS with your ERP and other supply management systems will provide your business with a seamless supply chain, offering product visibility to staff and customers.
