Choosing the right warehouse management system (WMS) is an important decision for many distributors and manufacturers. In today’s extremely competitive market with ever-evolving customer expectations, you’ve got to be able to connect your warehouse to the rest of your organization.

By bridging all data gaps and automating workflows, you can take your Microsoft Dynamics GP supply chain management to the next level. The key is getting accurate, up-to-date information in the hands of employees.

Korber Supply Chain knows how to help you build a competitive edge. In our latest eBook, 7 Ways a WMS Builds Competitive Edge, you’ll learn what your WMS should deliver and how it helps you compete, including:

  1. Give employees real-time insights into inventory

When you offer accurate and timely insights into inventory from anywhere and on any device, all your employees benefit. Sales teams have instant insight into actual inventory, enabling them to answer questions quickly and set customer expectations. Manufacturing teams get visibility into raw materials, WIP and parts across the entire organization including multiple warehouses and shop floors. Front office employees can look for opportunities to enhance customer relationships and increase sales.

  1. Accelerate shipping times with faster picking

Faster picking means better turnaround times and happier customers. The right WMS should optimize picking based on your business requirements including support for FEFO, FIFO, zone-based picking, wave picking, or guided picking logic with serpentine pick paths. Your WMS solution should also be able to guide pickers to alternate locations when needed due to insufficient stock or if an item is missing or damaged.

  1. Respond to recalls quickly with lot and serial traceability

Recalls become much easier with an integrated WMS for Dynamics GP. Automated tracking and documentation provide instant traceability, allowing your business to manage and control recalls faster with minimal disruption.

  1. Increase manufacturing efficiency with connected data

Your WMS should help you optimize resources. This includes scanning raw material to work orders and increasing finished good amounts against manufacturing orders. You will also want support for WIP sequence tracking and automated data collection (ADC) and barcoding.

  1. Improve customer satisfaction with fewer picking errors

A WMS can help you eliminate picking errors which will lead to faster and more accurate order fulfillment. Look for a WMS that supports the best and most durable barcode scanning as well as an easy to learn and use software interface.

  1. Control costs with efficient warehouse management

Warehouse workers must be efficient and productive at all times. By reducing the time spent on searching for lost items or waiting for paperwork, the right WMS will increase your warehouse efficiencies in product put away, movement, and fulfillment.

  1. Empower warehouse managers with actionable metrics

Your managers need access to key metrics in order to respond to challenges and manage costs. Real-time dashboards with role-relevant information empower your workers to proactively make decisions. Key performance indicators (KPIs) such as warehouse and employee performance provide a single view of the truth across your operations.
