The complexity of logistics software depends on your business. But no matter if you're running an e-commerce site, a traditional distribution or wholesale operation, or a 3PL warehouse, logistics software is the heartbeat of your business.
The goal is to streamline your supply chain in both B2B and B2C warehouse operations to create the most efficient warehouse possible.
Adopting a WMS or transitioning from a legacy system to a new system can be a complex undertaking for any company. However, the change will be worth the time and effort. You can experience a higher level of inventory accuracy, up to 100% with Logiwa, as well as faster cycle times. Your warehouse operations will be streamlined and integrated with other systems such as accounting and ERPs, carriers, and warehouse automation devices.
With a flow of data from the warehouse, you'll see benefits like increased storage capacity due to better organization and greater flexibility of warehouse operations.
Your logistics software should be flexible enough to handle B2B and B2C operations across all sales and fulfillment channels that you offer. One of the advantages to new logistics software is the ability to tear down silos that have built up between retail and e-commerce operations. All too often companies have operated those systems in parallel in the same warehouse, leading to duplication of inventory and operating costs.
Your WMS should integrate with an inventory management solution as well. You can use analytics to help you make smarter decisions about how and when to invest in additional stock. For many businesses, having too much inventory is as much of a problem as not having enough. With logistics software, it's easier to get it right.
Your customers won't be disappointed by stock-outs, and you can reduce inventory levels to free up cash flow. An inventory management tool will help you identify top sellers and slow sellers. Then, you can identify the products that produce the best return on investment and sell off excess stock tying up cash on the shelves.
If you sell via online marketplaces, look for a system that integrates seamlessly with your chosen channels. For Amazon sellers, you can deliver the high level of service that customers expect at a lower cost by fulfilling orders from your own facilities.
