If you’re looking for a way to automate your warehouse or DC operation, warehouse management systems software has much to offer. In fact, electronic WMS or e-WMS may hold the solution to many problems you face each day. Here is how e-WMS works and some of the benefits you can receive.
Linking Everything Together
Just a few years ago, conveyors, storage media and packaging systems like palletizers were all in separate departments. Today, thanks to e-WMS, mezzanines, modular offices, and conveyor systems are all in one large system, no matter how far apart they are. Everything is easily accessed from administrative handheld modules. You can take them with you anywhere you go. Here are some of the things you’ll enjoy with e-WMS warehouse management systems software and hardware:
* Assign tasks in real-time
* Check status by locations
* Check on storage media
* Check expiration dates
* Lot control
* Generate and view online reports
* FIFO cost flow assumption capabilities
* LIFO cost flow assumption
* Faster order processing
* Important Features
The e-WMS user interface is simple and easy to use. It won’t take long to train employees. It’s easy to link your warehouse management systems software with all kinds of mobile devices. You can use it with many order picking systems because it has voice recognition, bar code, and RFID capabilities.
Because the system is web-based, you don’t have to go through all the trouble of installing the program on all your devices. This can save you a lot of money on software registration fees, especially if you have many users.
When your data is in the cloud, you have a safe source of backup information. Also, with improved accuracy and performance, you can deliver better customer service and keep your customers happy and satisfied.
