Key Considerations for a Warehouse Environment

To-Increase Shares Key Considerations and the Roles Involved Between Warehouse Management and ERP System Purchases.

Norwell, MA, August 14, 2012 --( To-Increase, a provider of retail and Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) built on Microsoft Dynamics technology, shares the key business considerations for running an effective warehouse environment. These considerations are at the top of the list for any warehouse professional’s checklist.

For each type of system, both warehouse management system and ERP system, there are decision makers who weigh the benefits and costs of each. Although somewhat similar, each type of system does require different personnel to ask the questions and sign on the dotted line.

“Decisions for a warehouse management system vs. an ERP system vary and sometimes, it takes different personnel to make the call on the purchase. Each must run the numbers and competitive analysis on what will work best for their own business, warehouse management system or ERP," writes Guido van Osch, Global Industry Director, To-Increase.

Van Osch continues to share the players in each decision process, including:

For warehouse management systems - Supply Chain Manager or Logistics Manager do all the heavy lifting decisions, with backing from the CFO or Finance Manager.

For ERP systems - These are the CFO and CEO, with the Supply Chain Manager and other personnel supporting the decision.
