Optimal management through a warehouse management software (WMS)
The WMS helps organise real-time product flows within the warehouse, as well as manages stock and inventory. The system with the most suitable benefits will be installed depending on the size of the warehouse, its complexity, the number of personnel, and the logistical needs of the company.
The correct management of processes, tasks, resources and elements that participate in a warehouse’s daily operations translates into an increase in physical storage capacity. It also improves productivity and the quality of service offered.
Utilising Goods Distribution
Maintaining order in a warehouse is absolutely crucial and has a direct impact on all the activities being developed in it. This includes the work of operators, the management of stock, resources, workflows, etc. In a disorderly warehouse, there are no areas or locations assigned to products. When this practice occurs in medium or large sized facilities, with several operators and movements at the same time, errors ensue and time is lost locating items and preparing orders.
A WMS to handle directing of movements and operations for available stock
Out-of-stock means the absence or scarcity of products. Due to the lack of foresight, orders cannot be completed and therefore cannot be delivered to customers because there are neither sufficient goods nor enough time to respond.
In order to avoid this situation, the WMS is integrated with the enterprise resource planning system of the company (ERP). It verifies stock in real-time and makes relevant decisions in advance. It sends notifications and indicators relating to the status of stocks and obtains tighter control of the location of the goods.
