Why do you need warehouse management software?

By Service Geeni Team | 16 Jan 2020

Good warehouse management is essential if you hope to ensure excellent service and happy customers. Things such as shipping, receiving, storing and the picking of goods all have an impact on the long-term success of your business. As such, it’s vital that your service management software helps to maximise the efficiency and effectiveness across your warehouse operations.


Here are just some of the ways software can help…


The benefits of warehouse management software


  • Reduce errors. Warehouse software can help a business to reduce the number of incorrect items shipped. This helps to mitigate the costs involved with rectifying any mistakes and prevents any damage to valuable customer relationships
  • Maximise stock control. The best stock control system will boost operational efficiencies with impressive stock forecasting, and the ability to manage multiple stock locations
  • Keep track of your stock. It can be challenging to keep track of inventory, particularly when engineers keep stock in their vehicles. However, when you combine stock control software and a Mobile Worker app, you can keep track of items between locations and from job to job. Engineers simply select used parts from their van, and this is automatically deducted from your inventory
  • Save you money. With in-depth stock forecasting, you will always have what you need in stock, without having to spend too much to guarantee inventory. It is easy to set maximum, minimum and reorder levels for each stock item
  • Deliver a stable cashflow. With cloud-based warehouse software, you pay a subscription (usually monthly or yearly) to use the warehouse manager; with the price you pay dependant on the size of your business and the number of users. So, you only ever pay for what you need
  • Stay in control. With a good warehouse management system, you’ll always know what’s available and what’s happening
  • Optimise space. Warehouse management software can help you to maximise the layout of your warehouse
  • Boost productivity. By reducing the reliance on paper and automating standard processes, you will see huge improvements in workforce productivity
  • Improve compliance. Warehouse management software will help you to meet all the necessary requirements with adherence to the correct procedures built-in
  • Facilitate online order processing. With real-time inventory information from anywhere, on any internet-enabled device, your engineers can check whether the parts they need are in stock. What’s more, by allowing online order processing via mobile devices, your engineers get the parts they need as quickly as possible.
