Take Control of Inventory Management With a Best-fit WMS

Take Control of Inventory Management With a Best-fit WMS

Inaccurate inventory counts are more concerning than ever for distribution and fulfillment (D&F) operators. From eroding profit margins, disrupting order fulfillment processes and even delaying customer service level agreements (SLAs), D&F operators are under immense pressure to minimize inventory discrepancies and increase end-to-end inventory visibility. That’s why warehouse management systems (WMS) have become integral for e-commerce and omnichannel retailers seeking to compete with companies twice their size.

When implemented correctly, a WMS connects to a host system to initiate key inventory management and order fulfillment workflows:

  • Receiving and putting away inventory from inbound purchase orders
  • Managing inventory quantity and location instructions within the four walls
  • Releasing waves of outbound orders to the warehouse floor, allocating inventory, and generating fulfillment tasks
  • Providing real-time inventory and status information during these activities

But finding a WMS that aligns with your unique workflows, processes and business requirements can be a difficult prospect. Most retailers take of one of two common paths on their WMS journey:

  1. They over-invest in a WMS package that provides excessive capabilities which they will never use.
  2. They develop a homegrown WMS that offers diminishing returns and becomes a perpetual burden, consuming precious internal resources while eventually showing signs of obsolescence.

To alleviate these common WMS pitfalls, Honeywell Intelligrated has introduced its Momentum WMS software — a highly configurable WMS that allows you to precisely configure its functionalities to your specific warehouse workflows.
