The survey from Zebra called Warehousing 2020 shows that succeeding in the new supply chain paradigm calls for shortening merchandise delivery time and slashing transportation costs. These are the core reasons to move to the smart warehouse.
There is huge growth of e-commerce in the retail sector and warehouses must adapt to the flood of online orders. These initiatives reflect the move to best-of-breed Warehouse Management Systems and also Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) which will replace legacy operations.
One of the biggest reasons to upgrade to a best-of-breed WMS is for real-time data and enabling staff to fill orders more efficiently.
The RIC Group's WMS is now in a cloud based environment running on the browser and can be hosted on environments such as AWS. We also offer SaaS models to eliminate the cost of on-premise equipment and personnel.
It completely removes the need for any paper to be in the warehouse and users can use rugged handhelds or tablet devices. By implementing a WMS it also helps with reducing training time. This helps reduce costs for businesses.
