Development of warehouse management systems

WMS – Warehouse Management System

What is WMS?

The Warehouse Management System (WMS) is software that helps you control and manage the day-to-day operations of your warehouse. WMS software manages the receipt and placement of inventory, optimizes order picking and delivery, and provides advice on replenishing inventory. A warehouse management system can reduce the mistakes that can occur during the delivery of the product. With WMS the company can fulfill orders faster and it can track the ordered products in stock immediately.

How does WMS help?

Using WMS can help to reduce the company’s labor costs, improve inventory accuracy, improve flexibility and responsiveness, reduce mistakes in shipping and delivering goods, and improve customer service.

Modern warehouse management systems work with real-time data, allowing the organization to manage the latest information on activities such as orders, shipments, revenue, and any movement in connection with goods. It also helps reduce inventory fraud and inventory mistakes.

Why is the development of a warehouse management system important?

If the turnover of goods and the number of customers increase, it will be almost impossible to serve it with a suitable warehouse management system. The number of tasks to be performed is increasing, which, without proper management, upsets the order of the warehouse: there will be more and more erroneous deliveries and stock shortages, which will lead to customer dissatisfaction. A company-specific warehouse management system can be an excellent help to us as we see an increase in the turnover of goods and the number of customers.

  • If a particular employee knows everything about the warehouse.

  • If the administration is still paper-based. The warehouse provides a list of the shipped and delivered goods on paper, which is manually entered into the logistics system by an employee. In this case, the possibility of a failure in the data entry is doubled, and we can expect a delay of several days due to the recording.

  • If employees are constantly inquiring about the product inventory.

  • If there are incorrect or delayed deliveries.

  • If stock shortage and overorder are common. It often happens that products remain in stock, a stock shortage occurs, or a specific product will be ordered again, even though they are still in stock.

  • If the number of warehouse staff, due to a lack of capacity, needs to be expanded – in this case, it can happen that the work of the existing staff simply needs to be managed more efficiently.

How does the introduction of a warehouse management system pay off?

The warehouse management system provides real-time inventory information, accurate item identification, invoicing, and shipping correspondence. It manages the work of employees in the warehouse with various functions (dynamic shelf handling, controlled picking) and also reduces the administrative burden and the possibility of failures. This will result in a faster, more transparent and more accurate work, and it also reduces operational risk.

Functions of WMS systems

Warehouse management systems are used for recording inventory and coordinating the physical movement of goods, as well as managing the work of warehouse workers.

Each warehouse management system we develop is a completely individual, customized application, as it is extremely important that it fully serves the specific needs and functions of a company. We do not use boxed products, but we develop systems individually, customized to your business.

Inventory and warehouse management

We have to check the incoming products first: both quantitatively and qualitatively. This process can be easily tracked and recorded in a warehouse management system, so we get an accurate list of the products which have been stored in our warehouse. The storage location is also recorded in the database, which let all the employees to retrieve easily by using searching or filtering services.

A well set up system can handle the movement of goods as well as the commission, so they can be easily accessible, transparent and traceable.

Logistics

Logistics is responsible for delivering the right product to the right customer at the right time. In order to manage this, the product in the order must be available in the warehouse, the product must be properly identified and it must be found in the warehouse (in the shortest possible time).

Using WMS, we can perform logistics tasks easily. It facilitates inventory planning and management processes with real-time inventory data, taking into account warehouse capacity and the specifics of each product.

The products become easy to find, since we can search for anything from our database and get instant feedback on exactly where to find it. Using automatic identification (the most common technology is barcode and RFID), we can identify the product we are looking for without any mistakes.

Product lifecycle management

A warehouse management system will help us manage the proper handling of product data. Product information, planning and manufacturing workflows, and the interactions between them can be tracked and managed throughout the product lifecycle (from idea to implementing).

By using the system, we can reduce development and production costs, increase work efficiency, and achieve greater product quality with less development time.

Production management

The essence of production management is to coordinate, organize and execute production processes. During the production there are components that need to be stored as well, so a warehouse management system is a great tool for automating and implementing this process too.
