With many moving and changing parts to an e-commerce business, it will be difficult to keep track of everything and expect adequate results. The new standard practice for many e-commerce businesses is to adopt an advanced Warehouse Management System (WMS) that can watch over all their operations – keeping the business organized and on track while supplying valuable data for improvement.
Breaking Down a WMS
Warehouse management systems are software programs that are used to optimize warehouse operations and streamline procedures. A WMS ensures that goods and materials move along in the most efficient and cost-effective way by paying close attention to inventory tracking, picking and packing products, receiving and shipping, order management, and data reporting.
This type of software offers full transparency, providing a look at a business’s inventory in real time, even if the item is being delivered. A great WMS also assists with simplified returns management, most commonly with cloud-based solutions, which also integrate and are provided by third-party logistics providers (3PLs) like Simple Global.
WMS & Supply Chain Management
A WMS impacts supply chain management by managing the order fulfillment process, from receiving raw materials to shipping finished goods, and successfully avoiding improperly received items or misplaced parts within the warehouse. Because of this, a WMS can avoid any disruptions or halts during production. This also means that goods are stored and sorted properly in the first place, as well as providing accuracy and tracking to shipping and returns.
