A warehouse management system, or WMS, is a software program that controls supply chain fulfillment activities from the shipping center to the retail location and provides access to a company's full inventory levels. Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) services also assist businesses to optimize workforce and storage utilization, as well as equipment investments, by organizing and maximizing the utilization of resources and material movements. A warehouse management system (WMS) is frequently used in conjunction with or linked with other related systems, such as ERP systems, transportation management systems (TMS), and inventory management systems.
A warehouse management system (WMS) is designed to assist in keeping track of goods and commodities moved throughout warehouses in the most effective and economical way possible. Many operations which facilitate these movements are handled by a WMS, such as tracking inventories, gathering, acquiring, and putting away. Furthermore, a Warehouse Management System (WMS) plays a crucial part in supply chain management by controlling order fulfillment procedures from the beginning of raw material receipt through the shipment of finished products. The distribution network is able to function as rapidly, precisely, and cost-effectively as warehouse processes allow.
