What Does A Warehouse System Need To Be Effective?
Warehouse management is a very important part of retail because the warehouse tends to be where the stock on the shelf comes from. There are many systems that have developed over the years, including software designed for warehouse management but they all fail if consistent follow-through is ignored.
ChainDrive Warehouse has tools to help you lay out your facility and create bins, locating stock in the most efficient configurations and allowing an improved allocation of product designed to maximize efficiency from the time the inventory comes in to the time it is shipped. There’s flexibility built into the system so that as your business grows your warehouse layout grows with it and you lose no momentum. The way your warehouse is set up affects every transaction that takes place and hinders your workforce if it is not designed well.
But your crew is the secret to an effective system’s successful utilization. If they are not trained to do their part, and given the tools and productivity incentives they need to do a good job daily, even the most effective system will gradually grind to a slow pace that frustrates your team and affects your business.
The Warehouse Management component aids in prioritizing work tasks, tracking process status, and evaluating productivity. That’s good, but ChainDrive goes a step further to help your workforce be effective in implementing your warehouse strategies. The Professional Services provides the support you need to get everyone on your team on the same page and able to perform their tasks so that your enterprise is effective and consistent as your business grows.
