In today's era of global operations, supply chain, warehousing, and logistical considerations are more complex than ever. Are your supply chain systems appropriate for the task?
Some manufacturers require a stand-alone warehouse management system to meet their supply chain demands, while others—even some with high inventory turnover—would be better served by extending their current ERP functionality.
But even if you have the right inventory system for your business model and processes, you still require visibility into your supply chain, and the ability to leverage that data, in order to make the right business decisions and to function efficiently.
Ultimately, it all comes down to your processes on the warehouse floor, where the 'rubber meets the road.' Since warehouse workers execute more that 95 percent of physical inventory transactions in most facilities, it's essential to eliminate communications issues, interruptions, and incompatibility problems.
