(Newswire.net — August 12, 2020) — Fresno, CA — A report providing signs for businesses that a new warehouse management system is needed has been launched by Argos Software, a Fresno, California industry leader in business management software.

Argos Software, headquartered in Fresno, California has launched a warehouse management system (WMS) software solutions report to help readers identify signs that a new WMS is needed.

The newly launched report highlights the importance of having an updated WMS. Outdated systems prevent companies from running the most efficient, optimized warehouse. Having an old, outdated WMS can result in a host of problems, including an inability to keep up with the competition and a reputation that suffers. Other issues could include inventory control and stock-out problems, along with slow delivery times and reduced productivity…and much more.

The report also highlights the importance of sending the right message to customers by ensuring orders are processed timely and delivered as promised. A robust WMS shows that a company is not only up to date with the latest trends, but they are also taking their customers into consideration and investing in what it takes to keep them happy.

Growing demand is another key indication that a new system is in order, according to the report. It is important to be able to provide flexibility for complex or rush orders. If entering large or complicated orders seems nearly impossible because the warehouse management system was built for a small company, it is time to upgrade.

Software should also be updated to keep production costs down. When it takes too long to create orders, a trickle down effect includes delayed production and slowed output, which ultimately costs money. If current WMS software cannot process all the orders and some must be entered manually, this is unproductive and leaves companies wide open to costly order entry errors.

Finally, the report also highlights how a new WMS can offer complete visibility at all stages for businesses and their customers. Barcoding allows companies to find materials and inventory at every stage, from delivery to warehousing, while route planning gives full transparency even after an order has left the facility.
