What is a warehouse management system (WMS)?
Integrated into your main ERP software, WMS functionality provides real-time visibility into inventory levels, location tracking, order fulfilment, and shipping processes. As a result, you can take corrective action when needed, while the instant, 360-degree data visibility means you can gain tight margin control and better protect your profit margins. Ultimately, with the right warehouse management system (WMS), you can take your operation to the next level.
Easy stock management across your enterprise
Seeing your stock levels everywhere in real-time means you can make better decisions about replenishment. And with WMS integrated into your business, you streamline inventory management, saving yourself time and money.
Stock rationalisation for better profit margins
By spotting excess or slow-moving stock, distributors can make informed decisions about replenishment. And our software will help you see if you can replace underperforming items with more profitable items.
Get a better idea of your stocking requirements
WMS delivers instant access to sales trends and customer data. So, you can spot seasonal fluctuations or anything that affects demand. With more accurate forecasts, you can avoid times when you are over or under stock.
Track & audit essential management information
As WMS captures data in real-time, distributors can spot and correct problems as they occur. Plus, WMS tracks the movements of your inventory, so it’s lost or stolen which is invaluable during audits.
