Warehouse Management Systems Reviews and Ratings

What are Warehouse Management Systems (WMS)?

Gartner defines a warehouse management system (WMS) as "a software application that helps manage the operations of a warehouse or distribution center (DC)." WMS applications offer capabilities such as receiving, put-away, stock locating, inventory management, cycle counting, task interleaving, wave planning, order allocation, order picking, replenishment, packing, shipping, labor management and automated materials-handling equipment interfaces. These systems incorporate mobile devices along with bar code and, possibly, RFID scanning/sensing to form the transactional foundation of a WMS. Gartner includes integrated functionality what we refer to as extended WMS capabilities as components of a WMS evaluation. These include labor management, slotting, yard management, voice picking, parcel manifesting, value-added services, light manufacturing/kitting and third-party logistics (3PL) billing. We do not, however, consider stand-alone solutions in these areas as part of this market

Some examples of core capabilities / features are receiving, put-away, stock locating, inventory management, cycle counting, task interleaving, wave planning, order allocation, picking, replenishment, packing, shipping, labor management, and automated materials handling equipment (MHE) interfaces. There are also WMS applications that offer extended functions such as slotting, yard management, voice picking, parcel manifesting, and value-added services (light manufacturing/kitting and third-party logistics (3PL) billing).


helpHow many types of vendors are there available in the Warehouse Management Systems market?

WMS market breaks down into five types of vendors which are:

  • Application mega-suite vendors : Offering broad portfolios of applications across most application categories.

  • Supply chain management (SCM) suite vendors: Providing a holistic warehouse management system as well as two or more applications primarily based on supply chain management.

  • Specialist WMS suite vendors: Independent software vendors that focus primarily, but not exclusively, on holistic WMS suites.

  • Independent WMS component vendors: Not providing a full WMS, but instead offering stand-alone components to supplement a WMS.

  • Material handling equipment/automation vendors: Primarily focusing on supporting the electromechanical aspects of large-scale, automated warehouses.


helpHow do WMS offerings differ from each other?

WMS offerings continue to differ in areas like usability, adaptability, decision support, scalability, and life cycle costs. Focus on the breadth and depth of WMS offerings remains valid for the most sophisticated operations while other factors like simplicity, usability, and cost of ownership are more important factors in less complex environments.


helpWhat factors should be considered while choosing a warehouse management system?

Supply chain or IT leaders responsible for the selection of warehouse management solutions should:

  • Determine the people, process, organizational, data, and technology needs of each warehouse operation and focus WMS evaluations on the appropriate use cases.

  • Target the solutions best suited to their distinctive WMS use cases by developing a right-fit shortlist of vendors and solutions.

  • Embrace the importance of soft needs and benefits by reconciling the competing interests of functionality versus intangible characteristics such as usability, adaptability, implementation support, and simplicity.


helpHow does WMS technology work?

Warehouse management systems exploit mobile devices along with bar code and, possibly, RFID (radio frequency identification) scanning/sensing to form the transactional foundation of a WMS. This enables efficiencies of directed work activity and the delivery of accurate information in near real-time.

Warehouse Management Systems

1

Identify Organizational WMS Requirements Before Vendor Evaluation

"Ensure you have a strong set of requirements before talking to vendors. Some vendors will have slick presentations that will lead you to believe they can do anything. Don’t get overwhelmed as you don’t want surprises later."

CIO, Transportation Sector

2

Examine Multiple WMS Vendors to Choose One That Fulfills Your Organization’s Requirements

"I would make sure our top requirements were well-documented and provided to the vendor ahead of time. I would also ensure to conduct more “joint planning” along with the vendor so that they better understand the nature of our business to give recommendations on the best configurations to fit our needs."

Sourcing, Procurement and Vendor Management Professional, Unnamed Sector

3

Organize Your Processes Before Deploying the WMS Solution

"WMS software can inherently change a business; understanding it from the beginning will allow you to know better how amending internal processes to align with the streamlined processes within the vendor will further benefit the ROI for the project."

CxO, Manufacturing Sector

4

Provide Extensive Training to Prepare the Team on the WMS Solution

"I believe that you should acquire better consulting from the vendor to obtain the most out of the tool, or conduct internal training to teach employees the best of the tool."

Business Professional, Government or PS

5

Assign Experienced Professionals for Support During the WMS Implementation Stage

"It is essential to have a 100% dedicated team for the implementation of a WMS. Change management is fundamental. And work side by side with the vendor to implement best practices."
