A Warehouse Management System also known as a WMS is a software program designed to direct the flow of materials both into and out of specific storage locations

When a Warehouse Management System is integrated into the entire distribution process it directs the flow of materials to and from:

  • Receiving to Quality Control

  • From Quality Control to active or reserve storage location

  • When it is integrated into a picking system with a barcode scanner/ reader it can direct pickers to specific locations, instruct the picker to pick the specified quantity

  • The WMS can manage the flow of materials placed into a conveyor system and guide materials through the system to a packing system or directly to an outbound trailer

  • When used with an outbound fixed barcode reader it can capture and validate what, when, where, and who loaded the out bound truck

FACT  When properly configured and managed a Warehouse Management System can operate at levels in excess of 99.9% accuracy

FACT  Some WMS systems have been cost justified in as little as three months

FACT  Accurate Warehouse Management Systems are are the backbone of a Supply Chain System

FACT  In a recent survey nearly 60% of Warehouse Management Systems fail to meet the owners level of performance expectations!
