    The Future of Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) Must Support Complex Warehouse Requirements for a New Era of Buyers

    Posted by: John Reichert | June 11, 2018

    Future of Warehouse Management Systems

    A new era of buyers has arrived, and they are focused on the customer experience. It’s not enough to simply deliver a product into a buyer’s hands. No matter the industry, today’s savvy consumers expect a seamless, superior experience that delivers on a company’s brand promise. They want faster service, higher value, and 100% fulfillment. They want to feel good during the buying process. And they want this across all channels wherever they touch the brand.

    With that in mind, everything a company does from its messaging to the sales process to what occurs after the sale is part of the customer experience. If a company has deficiencies in any area, it could result in a customer having unmet expectations and a poor experience. If they are left unsatisfied, the company – and brand – could suffer detrimental effects.

    At the heart of the customer experience is buying process and getting the product they want into their hands as quickly as possible. From a business perspective, this must be done promptly, efficiently, and with no error – and it must be done better than the competition.

    To meet this goal and achieve a high level of customer satisfaction, you must have an efficient warehouse operation. A warehouse that has redundant processes, inventory and ordering inaccuracies, and outdated warehouse management software runs the risk of becoming noncompetitive and losing customers.

    To overcome these challenges, you must choose the right warehouse management system solution that’s powerful and flexible enough to support the many, complex factors involved in warehousing, ranging from organization and movement to management and everything in between that’s necessary to keep your warehouse running smoothly.

    When considering which warehouse management system is best for your business, look for one with proven performance and robust core capabilities. The following additional features will give your system more flexibility and added benefits:

    • Visual cues to accelerate warehouse tasks
