What To Look For   arrow

1) Transaction Management

Is the information precise and detailed? Does it track everything from receiving to manifesting?

For example:

  • Receiving
  • Putting away
  • Picking
  • Shipping
  • Inventory audits
  • Internal or warehouse-to-warehouse movement
  • Break-downs and Kits

2) Extra Functionality

  • What more can it do for you?
  • Will it make you more efficient and streamline business processes?
  • Does it track which employees conducted the work? (this will give you visibility to both the warehouse and your workforce efficiency)
  • Can it make things easier and faster? If so, you’ll get more done with fewer resources

3) Easy to Use

  • Easy to use applications will reduce the amount of time to complete a task and will also reduce employee training.  You’ll spend less time with manual tracking and monitoring and be up and running in minutes.
  • Does the application provide on-screen help?  Easy to use menus?  These both improve usability and provide a cleaner flow.

4) Reporting

Reporting is important.  It provides metrics that can help shape/reshape business processes and make things more efficient.  Data can represent performance inbounding, outbounding, which employees are getting the most work done, etc.

5) Flexibility

  • Can the application scale up or down according to a company’s growth or resource growth?
  • Can it meet future technological requirements?

6) Additional Hardware Compatibility

Can the application work with:

  • Barcode scanners/terminals
  • RFID scanners
  • Weight scales
  • Label printers
  • GPS

7) Price and Value

  • What is the cost of ownership when compared to similar products?
  • Is the cost modular?  Do you need to pay for every module even if they are not used, or can you turn on modules and pay for them as required?
