Over the last decade, our in-house team of developers built and continues to refine our proprietary internal warehouse management system (WMS), which we call WAMS. Tools and enhancements have been added based on client feedback received by our Client Services and Operations teams. The result is a flexible, near Tier-1 platform that accommodates the tremendous diversity of requirements of our omnichannel fulfillment warehouse management system.
The problems with off-the-shelf Tier-1 systems are flexibility and a need for rigidity in how inventory must be marked and managed, and these complexities equate to higher costs for client setups and ongoing management/administration. WAMS allows us to offer the features needed for efficient and effective operations management in an environment that is user-friendly, fast and flexible.
The WAMS platform is in a cloud environment (AWS) for quick deployment in new facilities and seamless integration of our system with yours. Real-time data is readily available for in-house management of day-to-day operations activity, as well as through the client dashboard tool, helping our clients operate a successful order fulfillment system.
The strength of our system lies in its functionality and flexibility for B2B and B2C pick-and-pack and overall warehouse management operations, including inventory management, receiving and returns. As needs or enhancement opportunities have surfaced over the years, our in-house development team has been able to quickly code and employ extremely useful modifications, such as the easy-to-use user interface that works through hand-held devices.
