Why use WMS ?

(Warehouse Management System)

3 advantages of using WMS

WMS – Merit 1 : Business Improvement

Do your current work more efficiently. And you can make business decisions from real-time data. If you improve your business flow, you will be trusted by your customers.


Merit - Can know the inventory in real time

The inventory status is automatically updated on the system from the scan data at the time of Receiving/Put-Away, etc.. You can know the warehouse in real-time and check the current inventory status with the system from anywhere without going to the warehouse.


Merit  - Work time speeds up

One of the most time-consuming tasks in the warehouse is searching for things when picking, “Where they are?“. If you use WMS, you can pick while checking the location. Therefore, the picking time will be shorter. In addition, picking instructions are also given according to the stock status. So, such waste is eliminated. "I went to the location but it was out of stock.“, "It was an expired inventory."


WMS – Merit 2 : Reduce mistakes

A common problem in warehouses is mistakes due to "human error". In particular, "wrong shipment" causes inconvenience to customers. If WMS can reduce mistakes, corporate value will increase.


Merit - Improved inventory accuracy

Receiving / Put-Away is recorded and managed in real time. Inventory accuracy (how many inventory is in the warehouse) is improved. In addition, inventory time can be reduced. This is because problems such as
"the numbers do not match" are solved.


Merit - Prevention of erroneous shipment

Main causes of erroneous shipment

- Missing shipping instructions : Missing when posting from order information to shipping instructions

- Picking mistakes : Picking different items, miscounting

- Shipping mistakes : Missing shipments, incorrect slips

WMS helps reduce erroneous shipment

- Linkage of order information and WMS : Import order information into WMS by System linkage / file import, etc., and automate shipping instructions

- Picking instruction : Error notification when picking is wrong

- Shipping error : The shipping record is registered immediately and linked to the shipping schedule.


WMS – Merit 3 : Reduce cost

Many companies have the goal of "cost reduction" in using the system. WMS also helps reduce logistics costs.


If you can be efficient with WMS, you will be freed from hard work and will be easier. And the company can try to new business opportunities. And if you don't make mistakes, you can reduce your error response time.

Merit - Reduces hard work


If you know the stock in the warehouse, you can have the right stock quantity. You don’t need worry for excess inventory. This will give you more space in the warehouse storage. It can also be replenished before out of stock. You will be less worried about out of items. Maintaining proper inventory has the advantage of reducing the cost of purchasing more inventory than necessary and eliminating the loss lost due to shortages.

Merit - Stock Inventory matches


Some WMS has a suggestion function that keeps track of the storage status in the warehouse and automatically notifies you of empty shelves. You can manage the location smoothly. Also, if it supports free location, you can freely change the layout depending on the stock status. The space in the warehouse can be used more effectively, leading to a reduction in storage costs.

Merit - Location optimization
