Could you have a new WMS before Christmas?
If you’re not thinking about Christmas yet, perhaps you should.
- Remember the chaos in your warehouse last Christmas?
- The mad dash to get all of those last minute orders shipped out in time for the big day?
- The trouble you had getting extra staff in December?
Well, all this could be a thing of the past thanks if you install a brand new warehouse management system and what’s more, with a little organisation, it might not be too late to get your WMS installed by the end of the year.
Why do you need a new WMS before Christmas?
Warehouses can be messy places if not managed properly with things like:
- Stock piling up
- Equipment lying around,
- Orders coming in and out at all times of the day
So it’s easy to see why companies fall behind and lose customers especially at the busiest times of the year.
With the popularity of events like Black Friday and the winter sales the last few months of the year have seen something of a boom in online sales over the past five years as companies such as eBay and Amazon sell millions of items a day around the world – and if you’re not prepared for this huge influx of orders you might just find yourself missing out,especially at your busiest times of the year.
So creating a more efficient working environment and reducing costs is critical to the improvement of any warehouse operation; something which a successful WMS can help achieve, both in the short term and as a long-term investment.
