Warehouse Management System

warehouse management system (WMS) is a software application designed to support and optimize warehouse functionality and distribution centre management. These systems facilitate management in using simplified automatic technologies useful in daily activities like planning, organizing, staffing, directing, warehouse keeping and controlling the utilization of available resources, to move and store materials inside, around and outside of a warehouse, while supporting staff in the performance of material movement and storage in and around a warehouse, without causing any large scale disruption to business resources.

YGL WMS systems manage all the moving parts inside the warehouse, they’re becoming increasingly important as more organizations digitise their distribution centres. WMS can include a wide variety of applications, including inventory management, order picking, put-away tasks, replenishment, shipping and even labour management.

YGL WMS can either be run as standalone systems, or can be integrated with order management systems and ERP systems.

YGL systems’ ability to increase productivity and lower costs makes them critical components in most companies’ success.  

WHY SHOULD We USE A WMS? 

A good WMS provides many benefits including:

  • Reduce or eliminate spreadsheets, “tribal knowledge”, and manual data entry
  • Produce detailed reports to track costs
  • Automate shipping and labeling processes to save labour time and reduce errors
  • Increase worker efficiency with automated pick-lists and streamlined workflows
  • Gain complete visibility to inventory stock levels and locations for improved material handling

HOW TO IMPLEMENT A WAREHOUSE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM?

Configuration. Implementation. In-House Preparation. These are all part of a successful WMS project and will incur their own cost. But a lot will depend on your company’s individual needs and the scope of your project. WMS suppliers will charge an hourly rate to configure and install your software. They will take your exact specifications and functionality requirements into consideration.

Furthermore, developers should provide an upfront estimated number of hours for your project. Configuration costs can increase if changes exceed the initial scope of the project. So this is where thorough planning and forethought on your end can prevent excess costs.

Also keep in mind, your new WMS system may require changes to your existing warehouse. Will you need to add Wi-Fi or wiring for hardware charging stations? Is it necessary to rearrange inventory locations, or add labelling? These items may raise the initial investment cost of your system.

Lastly, don’t forget any costs associated with on-going support or training. It’s a good idea to see if your WMS provider offers a “train the trainer” approach. This allows training of a super-user, or point person for your team. That person is then used as an in-house resource for your team when questions arise. Also, many WMS vendors provide options for supplemental training and technical support.

CONCLUSION: WMS FOR WAREHOUSING SUCCESS

A warehouse management system provides many benefits. These may include real-time inventory visibility, reduced costs, error-proofing, productivity or efficiency gains. It’s true that costs vary from solution to solution depending on your needs. Even so, it’s important not to bargain hunt for your WMS solution.

It’s important to ask the right questions to define your needs. Then, partnering with an experienced supplier can make a WMS implementation go smoothly. Complex supply chains add to demands on warehouses. So as your company joins the “lean” operations bandwagon, keep one question in mind. Can you afford not to automate your warehouse?
