Enhanced security

WMS software usually requires each individual to have their own login ID and password so that each employee can log into their account anytime and anywhere. Every employee will have their own account containing specific information that can only be viewed by them. Thus, employees will be able to manage their own transactions according to their specific tasks.

A unique login ID and password enables employees to have full control over their own accounts and transactions, therefore preventing theft and other security issues, ensuring that all the important information are kept safe.

In this case, your barcode scanners and RFID scanners come in handy because by scanning these items during stock check, the data will be automatically keyed in to the WMS software, allowing employees and the supervisor who are in the loop to view them and make sure everything is in check. The scanners will be able to detect the quantity, location, operator and time of the item being scanned, so the whereabouts of the goods will be known at all times. Hence, the person in charge can detect any errors or unusual occurrences on the movement of items at an instant and proceed to solve it immediately.

The tested algorithms of the system will be able to categorise the goods according to the date of expiration, or deadlines that should be met in terms of delivery.

Therefore, there is no need to hire a large amount of employees to supervise the warehouse operations.

Effective use of labour resources

To ensure the labour force is not spending time on unnecessary tasks, our WMS software is able to allocate tasks to each employee so that time is not wasted, and the company is able to generate productive outcomes. The process of order picking, packing, allocation and delivery will be measured by the system in order to find out the most effective combination that works for your company. Of course, specific handling of special items will be taken into consideration as well by the system, therefore offering companies a more practical way for an effective use of labour resources. Once this is properly managed, the ROI of your company is sure to rise due to the reduction in unnecessary labour costs and an increase in production rate.

Customer satisfaction

Our supply chain management software ensures an optimised supply and demand chain because of the organised operational structure that it provides to your company. An organised system leads to a schedule that is on-time, allowing less waiting time for both supplier and customer. Hence, your company will be able to deliver the goods on time while minimising errors on item delivery. Once customers receive the right items before or at an expected arrival date, customer satisfaction is most likely achieved.

At times, penalties will be given when suppliers do not meet certain requirements in terms of delivery, labelling, packaging et cetera. A WMS helps to reduce all these mistakes, thus improving the overall performance of your service. Happy customers mean that your company’s reputation will increase within the industry, leading to more sales and business growth for your company.
