Once you’ve picked a warehouse management software vendor, you’re well on your way to greater warehouse efficiency. The next step is implementation – and open communication is necessary for a smooth transition to a new WMS.
In a new whitepaper, we introduce three hacks for a positive WMS implementation:
- Prepare your organization: Identify your “early adopters” – warehouse staffers who embrace change – and focus on getting them up to speed.
- Stay aligned with your vendor: Your vendor should keep you apprised of all completed workflows and processes for your team to affirm the behavior. If possible, avoid changing expectations during implementation, as it will lengthen the process.
- Remove obstacles: Identify internal and external challenges that could throw a wrench into implementation, including your facility, third party vendors and your labor pool.
