In the fast-paced realm of modern business, companies often find themselves in need of agile warehousing solutions that can quickly adapt to changing customer demands. This evolution frequently involves a departure from their central ERP(enterprise resource planning) system, enabling the rapid establishment of a new warehousing entity. This shift requires the separation of warehouse management functionality from the broader ERP functions. In certain cases, the inexorable shift towards cloud-based operations drives the adoption of cloud-based warehouse systems.
The swift adoption of advanced warehouse management systems in a two-tier environment, working in harmony with any ERP system, represents a significant leap forward in operational efficiency. This dynamic solution provides robust core Warehouse Management System (WMS) capabilities, supports shared warehousing, seamlessly facilitates extended warehousing scenarios beyond advanced core WMS capabilities through pre-configured integrations with Microsoft’s suite of cloud solutions, including Sustainability Cloud, Intelligent Order Management, PowerBi, and a wide array of others. At the same time, it offers the flexibility to effortlessly integrate with numerous third-party Material Handling Equipment (MHE) systems, cloud-based printing solutions, and carrier hub cloud platforms.
Depending on specific operational requirements, businesses may choose to implement a Warehouse Management Only solution to address temporary or growing warehousing needs. These solutions offer customizable deployment options finely tuned to align with the enterprise’s unique demands. Operating in Warehouse management only mode enhances warehouse capabilities, ensuring a trifecta of flexibility, efficiency, and scalability—all achieved without necessitating a comprehensive overhaul of the existing system.
The embrace of Warehouse Management Only mode optimizes warehouse operations in an exceptionally effective manner, unlocking transformative potential that should not be underestimated. Take the plunge into these possibilities today by exploring the preview release and immersing yourself in the profound impact it can have on your business.
You can use lightweight source documents that are dedicated to inbound and outbound shipment orders to communicate between the systems. These documents focus exclusively on warehouse management, so they can replace multiple types of general-purpose documents (such as sales orders, purchase orders, and transfer orders) from a pure warehouse management perspective.
Warehouse management only mode also provides several deployment options to support your business needs. You can use Supply Chain Management to handle only warehouse operations, or you can use it to handle warehousing plus a wider range of processes (such as sales, purchase, and production orders). You can also set up a dedicated legal entity in Supply Chain Management that handles only the warehouse management processes for external systems.
