Warehouse management software provides corporations with remote access and digital insights into their inventory, orders and shipments. Employees no longer need to visit the warehouse to review stock or call management to check on orders or supplies. With warehouse management software, those with access to the portal can log in, choose the items they need, select a pre-programmed shipping address, and order a delivery in just a few minutes.
No more time wasted on sending your employees to pick up product or check on inventory. Everything is done remotely, and depending on the system, the software works with you to save you even more time and additional money. Here’s how:
Warehouse management software quality checks and monitors inventory, so you don’t have to. Certain items can be programmed to reorder automatically when they reach the minimums that you pre-set to ensure they are always available at the needed quantity. Meaning you’ll never come up short on the quantity you need and don’t have to devote time or resources to maintaining inventory yourself.
Cost Savings on Storage Space:
When you outsource your warehouse operations, all materials are stored at the fulfillment center, preventing you from having to rent space to house inventory. Beyond your more flexible inventory, you can keep collateral in storage for yearly or biannual events like tradeshows or conferences, preventing you from having to house these materials on-site or rent storage space.
Your operations will now be scalable, meaning inventory and service teams rise and fall based on your market demands, preventing you from overpaying during slower times in the year.
Pre-established distribution channels and a centralized location help reduce transportation costs. If you manage your fulfillment in-house, you may have hired staff designated to fulfill operations, or your current team may be managing these activities. Outsourced warehouse management means your team can stay on target with their responsibilities without the added work or time spent on fulfillment. Additionally, in terms of shipping the materials, most fulfillment vendors maintain partnerships to provide you with discounted shipping rates. Saving your bottom line.
Ever end up with a surplus or a blown budget? Some warehouse management software allows administrative users to set permissions for employees who have access to the digital storefront. These permissions can control who can order products and cap budgets so departments or locations never overspend or over-order.
