)-- To-Increase, a provider of Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) built on Microsoft Dynamics technology, reveals in a new blog post how a modern and high-tech WMS can help companies effectively meet the most critical customer demands, from near-immediate order fulfillment to real-time visibility into order status.
The blog post, "Trust Your WMS To Help You Achieve The Warehouse KPIs That Matter," defines two critical demands placed on a company's warehouse by customers: lightning fast service and the ability to track a product through every step in the order process.
"Before you can even think about developing a plan for addressing customer demands, your warehouse needs to define the Key Performance Indicators most related to these goals – and, of course – develop a plan for achieving these KPIs," writes post author Kurt Hatlevik. "This is where you need to trust a modern, high tech Warehouse Management System (WMS.)"
Hatlevik recommends warehouses focus on three KPIs that can help them best identify hurdles in the way of meeting customer demands:
· Open sales orders
· Items invoiced and ready for picking
· Productions that have started, ended or delayed
"While the list of KPIs above is certainly not complete, they each have two things in common: they synch directly with the customer demands we’ve previously defined – and they represent a symptom of a greater challenge: warehouse processes that lack visibility," continues Hatlevik. "And this is where warehouse management technology can help, by providing complete global visibility into every warehouse process and piece of inventory."
