The goal of warehouse operations is perfect order fulfillment: to deliver exactly the items a customer ordered, on time and with optimal efficiency. The warehouse module of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution can help smaller warehouses achieve this goal. But ERP warehouse modules have limitations that can make it smarter for companies with more complex operations to turn to the added capabilities of an advanced warehouse management system (WMS).
These are the end times for traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions. Overstatement? Not really—especially for growing businesses like yours. Old-school ERP systems are simply too slow, complex, and inflexible to keep up with today’s business climate.
