If the warehouses of a company are poorly run, it becomes more difficult to move products through the supply chain, which ultimately pushes back the delivery dates. As a result, it not only impacts the profits but also negatively affects the company-customer relationship, leading to other negative consequences down the line,” asserts Fred Boström, Founder and CEO of Bitlog.
Given the growing complexity of supply chains in today’s retail industry, the constant struggle to keep up with customer demands while maintaining costs is not uncommon for businesses. Today, in the era of integrated logistics, e-commerce fulfillment, and on-demand delivery, a robust warehouse management system (WMS) is a must. It allows firms to manage inventory in real-time, even taking into consideration the data of the latest order, shipment, or receipt and any movement in between. A WMS enables an organization to have a competitive advantage by minimizing labor expenses, improving inventory accuracy, enhancing customer service, as well as increasing flexibility and responsiveness. Although effective warehouse management has become a critical part of conducting business, supporting and optimizing warehouse functionality and distribution center management is still a complex challenge for organizations. Boström explains, “Companies today need an easy-to-use, inexpensive, flexible system that is quick to implement and stays flexible as their business evolves. This is what our SaaS-based WMS solution is known for in the market. Driven by the latest technologies, our solution gets the most performance and the latest functionality in one simple solution.”
Being a leading provider of WMS in the Nordics, Bitlog offers innovative supply-chain and logistics solutions.
