When it comes to help in the warehouse, you can hire more people or you can put technology to work for you. If you've already realized the ROI that barcoding can bring to your business, the next step is putting those barcodes to work for you through a Warehouse Management System. Here’s our guide on what to look for when selecting a WMS solution for NetSuite.   

 Tips for Selecting WMS Solution-1

Top-5 Considerations when selecting a NetSuite WMS Solution:

  1. Reliability: Look for a solution that is built in NetSuite. A WMS solution with no on-premise software or servers can provide faster response, fewer failure points and ensure safety from hackers.

  2. Added Functionality: You want a solution that can extend the power of NetSuite by adding functionality. For example, in addition to NetSuite’s Inventory Count Functionality, Cycle Counting allows you to pick and count specific inventory – instead of adjusting everything at the same time.

  3. Strategy for Bins: There are advantages to using bins, sure. It not only increases visibility and accuracy but also increases the productivity of your workers. But whether you use bins or not, your WMS solution should be able to support that. If you’re not currently using bins but decide to in the future, you’ll want a solution that can guide you through an easy process to get bins set up.

  4. User-friendly: Who wants to use a complicated system? No one. A user-friendly solution is one where you can download the bundle, and it’s up and running. This also extends to a user interface that is simple to use and easy to train. Planet Dog shared how they went from a month to training in 15 minutes!

  5. Experienced Implementations: As with any partnership, you want to work with the best. A company that has been in business for 30+ years, completed over 1800 warehouse implementations and has over 500 customers is a good place to start.
