Warehouse Management Systems Slotting

Why do you see inventory items in a store on the end-caps or strategic locations on shelves? Why does it cost suppliers more discount allowances to the store for those items to be located on an end-cap instead of the middle of the shopping aisle? They are visible, quickly picked up, and are more likely the buyer will purchase them. So give your customers what they want, faster and more efficiently.

COLLECT® Advanced Fulfillment Software Buyer's Checklist

Posted by Gerry Poe


With many experts are predicting tough times ahead which makes it a good time to add supply chain execution capabilities to streamline the shipping and receiving processes, improve productivity and meet the increasingly complex industry and customer requirements.

Unfortunately, not all systems help you compete and if you are a smaller manufacturer or distributor, you may not need the complexity of an ERP application designed for larger peers.  

With this consideration, you still need a solution that helps compete for business in the demanding, global world of distribution.

COLLECT-avanced-ship-1.pngIndustries which have an opportunity to improve functionality, compete and win business, even when times get tough:

Complex industries – Industries like consumer packaged goods often have complex needs such as unique labeling, packaging and shipping requirements.

Regulated industries – Regulated industries such as automotive and those that handle hazardous materials need systems that help them stay in compliance.

Distribution to large retailers – Many large retailers have unique and stringent material handling and labeling requirements that need to be met in order for a distributor or manufacturer to maintain status as a preferred supplier.

Global distribution – Organizations that distribute goods abroad need systems that help them create all the necessary paperwork and ensure that nothing is missed.

Successful Selection and Implementation of WMS for Manufacturing and Distribution

Posted by Gerry Poe

Supply chain managers have been trying to get visibility into their operations as long as there have been supply chains. In an omni-channel operating environment, visibility is more critical than ever. When a customer places an order, you need to have some degree of confidence that the inventory is going to be there. The value of a warehouse management system is quickly obvious which brings us to the questions of “which system?” and “who will implement the system?”

When selecting a warehouse management system (WMS), there are an abundant number to choose from. After working with the best (and worst), we understand the frustration of how expectations can be exceeded (or broken).

If you currently operate an ERP system, the WMS functionality may be part of that suite, or you can use a bolt-on WMS package or an extended WMS for convergence. We have implemented both and believe the choice of WMS software should fit exactly to the requirements of your warehouse operations. (vs. changing the operation to meet the demands of the WMS software)
