Characteristics of a Highly Effective Warehouse Control System
An effective warehouse control system is agile, reliable and responsive to the changing supply chain. The software must provide connectivity, visibility and real time analytics to streamline processes, reduce costs and meet customer demands.
“A good warehouse control system is designed for the dynamic, fast-paced operation where business needs can quickly change and sub-second response times are necessary to manage high-speed equipment,” states Rich Hite, President of QC Software, a leading North American provider of warehouse control solutions for the material handling industry.
Before purchasing a warehouse control system, decision makers should make sure the software has the following capabilities:
Configurable. The warehouse control system easily implements new tools and processes to remove inefficiencies and grow with the company.
Reliable. The warehouse control system consistently accesses real-time data to improve response times and adaptability. Since the software physically resides within the facility, the warehouse can continue operations in the event of an ERP or Host system disruption.
Visibility. The warehouse control system provides a comprehensive view of the supply chain.
Connectivity. The warehouse control system has cross-platform capabilities, allowing easy integration with various operating systems and hardware platforms. This feature extends the life of the software as a company implements new technology.
Analytics. The warehouse control system has advanced diagnostic and reporting tools for quick identification of issues and trends.
Collaborative. The warehouse control system has the ability to share real-time information with partners and customers.
Execution. The warehouse control system streamlines warehouse processes for greater efficiency and cost containment.
With an agile, responsive warehouse control system, the distributor will more effectively manage a complex operation, meet customer needs and achieve corporate goals.
