Implementing a Warehouse Management System (WMS)

Workshop Date: 2018-03-23

Warehouse Management is no longer confined to the traditional role of receiving and storing goods, reducing damages and losses, and having accurate inventory counts.

Improvements in technology and more demanding customers are forcing companies to radically change the role of Warehouse Management to that of increasing sales and driving growth. Record high sales orders and high product availability do not result in great performance if the company cannot ship the products. The current mantra in most organizations is Save the Sale.

As many executives lamented:

 "It takes us 5 to 8 days to deliver complete orders to our customers"

 "We lost more than a month's worth of sales last year, as orders were not delivered"

 "We do not know if we can ship current orders; we have no idea what our warehouse capacity is."

Workshop Overview

The workshop is designed for organizations who envision more efficient and responsive warehouse operations, or are in the process of planning/implementing a Warehouse Management System (WMS). A manual/spreadsheet-based system can no longer cope with the speed and complexity of running day-to-day warehouse operations, and in many organizations, company leadership has recognized the need for a new system to run the warehouse operations. On the other hand, some companies who ventured into WMS implementations ran into some critical issues, such as:

 "Our warehouse personnel were not involved, as they were busy shipping the orders."

 "It was too complicated."

 "We thought it was an IT project."
