ERP for Retailers
Ensure your business processes are aligned with industry best practices and optimized to meet customer demand.
Effectively managing warehouses can be difficult for most distributors and retailers, especially if they're still running on manual, cumbersome processes. This is why leaders in the industry have turned to a warehouse management system (WMS) to automate and streamline operations.
A WMS helps retailers and distributors with warehouse functionality and efficiency, mainly related to speedy receiving and optimizing space management with directed putaway capabilities. An industry-specific WMS helps you count products during the unloading process at the receiving dock, create picking and packing efficiencies that can be maximized with integrated pre-pack and cartonization rules and easily manage and validate returns and reorders with lot and serial tracking.
Imagine having all the functionality you need from a WMS to support warehouse efficiencies and streamlined processes within an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.
An ERP with a built-in WMS supports many of the complex processes and operations across your business. You want a solution built to include all the tools you need to manage your multifaceted operations. It should be able to scale as your business grows, to offer ease-of-use and flexibility, to stage orders during the pick demand process and to define wave-picking by precise specifications. This enables you to manage your direct-to-consumer (DTC) orders and fulfillment requirements while providing the functionality and operational visibility necessary to run a capable warehouse.
Robust inventory management tools are necessary to keep up with DTC as the new fulfillment model. An ERP with built-in WMS functionality ensures that once the order is processed, the warehouse floor operates efficiently to get the order out the door and into the hands of the customer as quickly as possible.
