Keeping up with customer expectations for fast, accurate deliveries is no easy task for growing distribution companies. Many are struggling with manual inventory management done on spreadsheets. Others might have a good handle on inventory but can’t fulfill orders fast enough because their warehouse isn’t organized properly. This is where a warehouse management system (WMS) can help.

What is a warehouse management system?

Let’s take a step back and talk about warehouse management. It’s the process of organizing stock in your warehouse, including inventory management, warehouse design, order fulfillment, monitoring and reporting, labour management and task optimization. That can get complicated in a hurry. WMS is a software application that helps you manage all these moving parts. It controls your daily warehouse operations by automating processes and coordinating staff, equipment, inventory and orders.

How to simplify warehouse operations with NetSuite WMS

While it can be used as a stand-alone system, WMS is often part of your ERP system. This is the case with the NetSuite warehouse management system. Having a single solution means you don’t have to worry about integrating your WMS with your ERP (or other systems) or dealing with integration syncing delays. This allows you to achieve even greater improvements in your supply chain processes.

Here are just a few of the ways NetSuite WMS helps you manage your warehouse more effectively:

  • Establish and optimize your warehouse layout and zone definition.

  • Increase productivity with a mobile app that gives you complete product information at your fingertips and includes barcode scanning functionality to track real-time inventory movements and transactions.

  • Create, prioritize and assign tasks to mobile users.

  • Give employees recommended bin locations using putaway rules.

  • Define rules to optimize your picking processes and task assignment.

  • Auto-print item labels during the receiving process.

  • Fill orders faster with picking and packing across multiple sales orders in a single session.

  • Create waves of orders based on specific filter criteria that can be released to the warehouse floor for picking and shipping.

  • Reduce waste with better space, inventory and labour management.
