ERP Solutions for Warehouse Management
Why use Warehouse Management ERP Software?
The goal of any Warehouse Management Software (WMS) will include monitoring warehouse activities in real-time mode minimizing entry errors, and help you measure the efficiency of your warehouse employees.
What are my people doing all day? Why do we have so many shipment errors? What is the cost of return processing and shipment charges and expedited replacements? It is no wonder my people seemed overworked, they are constantly handling returns instead of new orders.
We need to track inventory, but cannot afford more personnel. Would the addition of Radio Frequency (RF) devices and bar coding help? What will it cost to implement such a system? None of our shelving is labeled and our parts are all over the place.
Customer service is always calling the receiving department to find out if our orders have come in so they can answer our customer's questions. There ought to be a way for the system to tell them that in a timelier manner.
We are only sure about the stock status of an item when we are out-of-stock. Physical inventory takes too long and it is out of date the next day. What can be done to automate inventory and cycle counting? We lose inventory all the time. We are not sure if we should count boxes or pallets, because our system does not handle different units of measure well. We have no way of tracking the transfers between our warehouses. The system seems incapable of telling us what should be transferred.
Order processing is so time consuming. We are never sure if we picked, packed and shipped what the customer ordered. Our staff is picking orders one at a time and the manager is not sure who is working on which orders. They try to keep up with spread sheets, but they still are unable to keep up with demand. We have no idea who is being productive. Even if we do pick the right item, we often get the quantity wrong.
Not only do we struggle with these warehouse issues, our customers are now requesting Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) confirmations.
Our managers have to manually figure out how to load our trucks for delivery. Most of the time they do a pretty good job, but when they have a bad day, we get backed up and have to expedite replacements and send a second delivery which backs up production for the next day. Not only is our truck processing inefficient, we do not even pick our orders in the right sequence and we waste a lot of time.
