Is my distribution center well controlled? Are the systems helping drive efficiency and improving service?
Total Logistics, now part of Accenture, supports the identification, selection and implementation of Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) that are suited to the supply chain’s needs.
A strong WMS is integral to a well-functioning supply chain; inventory needs to be controlled in a live environment with full traceability and audit trail. The flow of information needs to be seamless between the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and downstream transport and warehouse systems.
A well-designed WMS provides a holistic approach to the distribution center, encompassing active management of labor and visibility of tasks that cover all the warehouse/yard functions. New warehouse technology offers voice, light and vision-picking with effortless connectivity. Warehouse Management Systems are being linked to respond to rapid order promise demands across wide geographies.
We help our clients decide on the warehouse system that is suitable for their supply chain; to add value to the current operations and to future proof for future digital developments. A typical project can include functional design, tendering and implementation.
