Intangible Benefits of Warehouse Management Systems

We often talk about the tangible benefits of a warehouse management system and how it is fairly easy to measure the return on investment of these tangible benefits.  Many times we get caught up in the savings a company can realize by creating accurate inventories or efficient picking processes that we lose sight of some of the most important things a warehouse management system can deliver.  Here is a short list of intangible benefits as well:

  • More efficient use of lift trucks will preclude the need to purchase additional equipment.
  • Cycle count routines will be more accurate and less time consuming.
  • Improved customer service as a result of accurate, real-time data
  • Job enrichment for users.
  • A sense of value in improving operations.
  • Reduced floor space as a result of faster throughput.
  • Tighter purchasing procedures through more timely visibility of vendors incoming products
  • Automatic cross-docking for critical deliveries.
  • Real-time visibility of goods/materials received can eliminate “stock out” situations
  • Automatic order sequencing by shipping routes.
  • Eliminate error prone pick lists and paper trails.
  • Reduce or eliminate checking process during order packaging.
  • Increased sales due to ability to trust inventory
  • Better data can provide management with tools to improve and grow business

Each and every company will have a list that is specific to their business or industry.  The fact remains that these benefits, while harder to measure, will accelerate a company’s ROI when purchasing and implementing a warehouse management system.
