Warehouse Management System (WMS) is a software solution designed to simplify day-to-day warehouse operations, increase visibility into inventory movements, and improve inventory accuracy by empowering manufacturers to remotely execute and track details of different warehouse operations. By this, WMS helps manufacturers to ensure efficient and cost-effective movement of inventory across entire supply chain.
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems are the backbone of any wholesale or distribution business, automating business processes and enabling the flow of information between functional areas. Few ERP systems, however, include robust supply chain execution functionality. More typically, quality ERP solutions focus on related, but nonetheless essential, functionality for managing inventory such as tracking products as they’re picked, packed, and shipped to the customer. Many small to midsized enterprises (SMEs) – particularly those with high-volume and highly-automated distribution facilities – invest in a dedicated warehouse management system, or WMS, to digitize and automate all aspects of their inventory control.
How do they work together?
A WMS system adds more sophisticated functionality to an ERP system. This enables organizations to continuously monitor products’ progress as they move in, through and out of the warehouse; keep the receipt, storage and movement of goods under control; and use real-time intelligence to optimize product location and shelf duration.
Integration happens when the WMS interacts and synchronizes data seamlessly with the ERP, allowing all areas of your business to have full supply chain and inventory visibility. Data synchronization errors or failure can lead to inventory inaccuracy which would be highly detrimental and defeat the purpose of having a WMS to begin with.
Although ERP integration is one of key factors when choosing a WMS, it’s also a very common challenge with many implementations. Some WMS solutions are not well equipped to handle other platforms’ data and code. Therefore, when shopping around for a WMS, you should look for a company with proven expertise and a record of successful deployments.
