Top Warehouse Management Systems for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 


Email | Print

Microsoft Dynamics products are built in such a way that add-on products and capabilities can expand and enhance each customers' experience.  One of the main benefits of this add-on approach is that there are numerous choices for critical parts of your ERP system.  Not all warehouse management systems are built equally, and not all companies have the same warehouse needs.

 

Microsoft delivers Business Central out-of-the-box with a strong warehouse control system.  There isn't any official Microsoft mobile scanner software product, but the system has all the underpinning and architecture to handle very complex requirements.  Many companies reap huge benefits moving from a spreadsheet-based system to the out of the box Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central warehousing by itself.

 

That said, sometimes users need to interface with barcode enabled mobile devices. Any serious investigation into barcode warehousing solutions for Dynamics 365 Business Central should consider these next few products.

 

Warehouse Insights

Our friends at Insight Works have one of our favorite products for Dynamics 365 Business Central.  Currently, the only WHMS product listed on AppSource, "Warehouse Insights" is more deeply embedded with Business Central manufacturing than any other product in this class. www.dmsiworks.com

 

Lanham Warehouse Management

As much as Warehouse Insights has deep integration with manufacturing, Lanham products have a terrific integration with EDI and supply chain businesses.  Considered leaders in MRP, EDI, and warehousing in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, Lanham is clearly a top warehouse management add-on. www.lanhamassoc.com

 

TF Mobile

Tasklet Factory has a mobile WMS for Dynamics 365 Business Central and advertises itself as easy to install and use. It looks to be designed for Android devices (which are less expensive and more modern than some of the Windows CE devices) but is fully integrated with Business Central.  www.taskletfactory.com

 

Honorable Mentions

These products have integrations with older Dynamics products and are not advertising their move to Business Central. That means that Business Central cloud customers might have to pass on this product (for now) but businesses with on-premise deployments could look at it.

 

Highjump WMS for Dynamics NAV

Highjump is a strong warehouse management solution as well, but as of this writing hasn't moved from the more classic Dynamics NAV integrations to Business Central.  www.highjump.com

 

Without Wire

Without wire is similar to Highjump and for much the same reason has landed on our honourable mentions list.  www.withoutwire.com

 

Keep your eye on both HighJump and Without Wire for announcements supporting Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central in 2019 or 2020.  Additionally, for more information on Warehouse Management, check out our latest blogs on 4 reasons businesses want warehouse management, and 4 mistakes people make when implementing barcode warehouse management.
