Why Growing Companies Put Scalability on the Top of the List When Seeking a WMS

Why Growing Companies Put Scalability on the Top of the List When Seeking a WMSWhen you stop to think about it, your warehouse is a key piece of real estate in your business. It takes up a significant amount of physical space, and it’s where stock is received and stored, picked and shipped. The inventory and equipment represent a considerable investment in the business, and it’s important to keep accurate counts of what is coming and going from the premises. It’s important to choose a warehouse management system (WMS) that’s the right fit for your business.

A WMS system that is a good fit for a company with a catalog of hundreds of products in its warehouse serviced by a few loading bays will be different from one that is being used by a larger organization with thousands of items. Each one can benefit from a WMS system, but their needs aren’t the same. 

If you are already familiar with the benefits of a scalable WMS like Scanco Warehouse for Acumatica you can contact us online or call (330) 645-9959 to arrange your consultation with a Scanco Solutions Expert now. 

Scalable WMS Can Help You Save Money 

As a business owner or manager, you always have to evaluate whether spending money makes sense from a bottom-line perspective before you commit to allocating funds to a purchase. Unless you can justify the decision, the money doesn’t get spent. 

When it comes to a WMS, it makes sense to choose a system that fits your current business model. You’re not allocating funds to equipment that isn’t needed, plus you aren’t allocating time and effort to training your team for functions they won’t be using. This is one situation where the best choice is to get a system that’s a good fit for your operation now. 

As your business grows, you can re-evaluate your needs. A scalable WMS can grow alongside your business, as opposed to your business having to catch up to the WMS technology you have already invested in. 

What to Consider Before You Choose a Scalable WMS 

Before you make a decision on a scalable WMS like Scanco Warehouse for Acumatica, you need to give the matter due consideration. It’s important to ask questions to determine whether the WMS you’re considering will be the best fit for your company. 

  1. Is the WMS easy for your employees to learn and operate?
  2. What type of hardware does the WMS use?
  3. Is it going to make tasks easier for your team to complete?
  4. How does the WMS automate tasks and reporting so that you can focus more of your attention on the customer service and production side of the business?
  5. Can it support the number of people you want to have access to the platform at the same time (now and in the future)?
