Inventory that updates with the latest trends and receiving new products daily means adding SKUs and optimizing placement daily. Working with seasonal inventory may mean that yesterday’s top performers aren’t so hot today.
Add the fact that most distribution centers are now also having to support omni-channel selling. Retail and wholesale distribution also pose unique issues for labor management software.
Many customers are keeping up with popular trends, purchasing familiar brands, and taking advantage of the latest sales and promotions. Whatever selling strategy your omni-channel or e-commerce operation has implemented, having a WMS system like WAMAS® by SSI SCHAEFER allows you to manage everything in real-time. Order optimization based on historical data or loyal customers is just one of several key benefits. Many retailers want to offer same day shipping, or in-store pickup based on the nearest warehouse location for delivery.
With WAMAS optimization, you can take advantage of advanced picking procedures to ensure innovations like waveless picking. Ensuring a steady flow of picking without peaks and lulls, waveless picking means labor is consistent throughout each shift with the utmost throughput. WAMAS also handles just-in-time orders, next or same day delivery orders, and even priorities from your most loyal customers.
WAMAS can help you manage every aspect of your supply chain and send key alerts to executive members wanting to stay up-to-date. Key insights and analytical data can be shared across multiple stakeholders within the organization. The bottom line is that WAMAS gives retailers and wholesalers the ability to scale-up operations when needed.
