The Future of Warehouse Management Systems

By February 24, 2015 Fulfillment, Logistics

The warehouse management system (WMS) continues to reinvent itself. It is a key part of the supply chain that offers strengths in planning, inventory management, and aims to control the movement and storage of materials within the warehouse. Unfortunately, numerous companies are operating on a legacy WMS that is not as functional as it needs to be. With the growth in ecommerce and consumers wanting goods as soon as they are ordered, everything must be focused on speed and satisfying consumer demand.

The biggest surprise has been the change of pace inside the software market. Historically, a new software had a life span of 10-25 years, which not too long ago decreased to about 8 years, and is currently needing to be updated at the 3-year mark. Furthermore, if they are not noticeable functional problems, there are clues to look for to prepare for a new WMS or software update.
