Warehouse automation is proving to be a compelling investment for distribution operations seeking reduced labor costs and improved throughput efficiencies.
Many businesses rely on paper-based picking, discrete order-picking processes or ERP/WMS. But businesses with omnichannel order fulfillment operations that lack the tools needed to optimize and manage a complex order fulfillment operation will struggle to control labor costs.
This report discusses the role ERP and WMS play in distribution operations and explore how Warehouse Execution Systems (WES) and Warehouse Control Systems (WCS) can support those functions.
Learn which systems are best suited to optimize order release while managing both traditional warehouse automation, as well as the latest automation technologies such as Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) and Robotic Goods-to-Person (G2P) systems.
This report shows how small and mid-sized distribution center operations benefit when investing in a WES-WCS system to extend productivity of an existing ERP or WMS system.
