What is Produmex WMS?
Produmex WMS for SAP Business One extends the standard functionality of SAP Business One with functions supporting shop floor operations in the areas of production, packaging, inventory management, and logistics (inbound, picking, shipping).
In this webinar, Ongevalle outlined the top 5 challenges facing the industry right now, the efficiencies businesses can expect when adopting a warehouse management solution (WMS), and then closed with a live demonstration of Produmex WMS for SAP Business One. Here are a few highlights from the presentation.
Challenges Facing the Warehousing Industry
Like many industries during the pandemic, growing enterprises face numerous challenges. Boyum IT’s Ongevalle says that businesses are hard-pressed to meet the regulatory requirements, especially in the food and beverage and life sciences industries. Today, there’s also an emphasis on eCommerce sales channels, a global trend in response to the pandemic. At the warehouse level, businesses need to ensure their workers’ health and safety on the ground floor. As always, companies are facing pressure to minimize their costs, and all the while maintain hard-earned customer relationships.
How WMS Solution like Produmex WMS Can help
For the last ten years, Ongevalle has visited hundreds of small to midsized enterprises (SMEs) across the globe, and of the successful ones, well, they all share several things in common.
- They minimize operational costs
- They strive to become more efficient
- They maximize customer satisfaction
- They look to become more agile
- They improve inventory management with real-time reporting
That’s where Produmex WMS solution can be built upon a business’ core enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution like SAP Business One. Produmex WMS is a complete solution for SAP Business One that transforms logistics processes into finely tuned operations that drive productivity within a supply-chain through its rich feature set.
The strength of warehouse management lies in the completeness of features needed to achieve the five requirements outlined above. From simple inventory transaction processes, license support to customer-focused inventory allocation strategies, sophisticated batch attribute management, and product traceability, Produmex WMS enables customers to become fully compliant with industry exacting standards.
Knowing When it’s Time to Adopt a WMS Solution?
According to Ongevalle, “Understanding the needs for a warehouse management system starts with asking questions about your business, especially if you're concerned that your operations aren't as productive or as profitable as you think they could be.”
That means that businesses need to review the activities that play a role in your warehouse - including goods receipt, put away order fulfillment, replenishment, shipping, inventory costs, labor costs, equipment challenges, etc.
If a business finds that things like inventory counts aren’t as accurate as they could be, or other telltale signs like manual processes causing delays, then it might be time to consider adopting a WMS solution to connect into your ERP solution.
