RETAIL & WHOLESALE
Manage Your Omnichannel Supply Chain in Real-Time
Managing distribution for retail is tough.
Inventory that updates with the latest trends and receiving new products daily means adding SKUs and optimizing placement daily. Plus, working with seasonal inventory may mean that yesterday’s top performers aren’t so hot today. Add the fact that most distribution centers are now also having to support omnichannel selling. Retail and wholesale distribution also pose unique issues for labor management too.
Holiday peak seasons can hinder normal operations but making certain that you have the right warehouse management software (WMS) in place is key when needing to overcome these challenges.
According to Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, warehouse labor wages grew 2.8 percent and unemployment in the warehouse section is at a 10-year low.
Customers are ordering 24/7 though e-commerce sites and mobile applications.
Many customers are looking for the most recent trends, familiar products, or taking advantage of the latest sales promotion. Whatever selling strategy your retail chain or banners have implemented, having a WMS system like WAMAS® by SSI SCHAEFER allows you to manage everything in real-time. Order optimization based on historical data or loyal customers is just one of several key benefits. Many retailers want to offer same day shipping or delivery based on the closest store for pickup or nearest warehouse location for delivery.
WAMAS can efficiently manage your inventory based on shipping rules, preferences, and processes.
From there, an optimized order method allows the most advanced picking procedure to ensure waveless picking. Waveless picking provides a consistent and steady flow of picking without peaks and lulls so labor is consistent throughout each shift with the utmost throughput. WAMAS also handles just in time orders, next or same day delivery orders, and even priorities from your most loyal customers.
Reacting faster to retail demands allows your organization to stay competitive.
WAMAS can help you manage every aspect of your supply chain and send key alerts to executive members wanting to stay up-to-date. Key insights and analytical data can be shared across multiple stakeholders within the organization. Plus, WAMAS gives retailers and wholesalers the ability to scale-up operations when needed.
