What is Warehouse Management Software?
Today’s warehouse operations, and their requirements, can vary widely from company to company. In fact they can vary from warehouse to warehouse within an organization itself.
Likewise, warehouse technology and warehouse control systems can encompass many different activities. For instance, warehouse management software can apply to many distribution center tasks.
The goal of a WMS is to improve efficiencies in the supply chain. This can include material handling, order fulfillment or management of inventory and machinery. With this in mind, Radley software automates, streamlines and error-proofs these activities. You can choose from our platform of solutions to meet your warehouse functionality and automation requirements.

Warehouse Management Solutions
Radley’s platform of EDI and Manufacturing & Warehouse modules work as stand-alone solutions. Yet you can also use them together or integrate to your ERP and business systems. Radley is the cost-effective solution to your warehouse automation needs.
For example, you can extend your ERP system for better supply chain management. This allows the inclusion of warehouse management system (WMS) functionality.
As a result, you’ll have a single system of record. This lets you track order processing, inventory control, and shipment processes. Also, it eliminates the need to synchronize many systems and their data.
Similarly, for smaller companies without an ERP, Radley can provide an WMS solution. This can provide all the required capabilities for your warehouse.
Automation and ERP Functionality
It’s true that Warehouse Automation software has many benefits. But can you achieve them with your current ERP? Click the article below to learn more. Or check out Radley’s blog for the latest articles on warehousing and manufacturing.
An ERP system is one of the most important tools for a manufacturer, or distributor. The solution helps streamline production, shipping, and long-term forecasting. And it integrates all the business inputs into a single workflow.
Unfortunately, this dependence is a double-edged sword. For instance, companies get reliant on old ERP systems. Also, these legacy systems do not get upgraded and do not integrate well to other systems. As a result, ERP can end up boxing companies in and prevent them from growing.
Above all, companies often find that they need more functionality. But each business is different, using different production schedules and industry norms.
Thus, an auto producer has much different manufacturing processes than a candy manufacturer. They serve different customers, have different time schedules and types of quality checks.
So ERP systems need to adapt to the functions that best fit with the specific business. As such, a general, out of the box ERP system will never meet every single need.
Upgrades on existing software also are crucial. Let’s say your company needs automated storage and retrieval. Or, it could need advanced forecasting tools or data analysis software.
Upgrades can help get these extra capabilities. But legacy providers may not offer the right tools. Also, they could make it expensive to get them.
For these reasons, more companies are going to third party vendors. These vendors help them improve ERP capabilities and workflows. Companies can gain new features and productivity without breaking the bank.
Scalable WMS solutions can help fill the gaps in your existing ERP’s functionality. Stand-alone warehouse execution systems can ensure data integrity while improving productivity.
Also, these solutions boost process efficiency while reducing labor costs. And it may be possible to integrate a solution into your ERP for a single system of record.

Streamlined Picking Process
Common Order Picking Errors & How to Solve Them
Accurate picking is essential to a modern warehouse operation. Inefficiencies and mistakes can be a bottleneck to the distribution and fulfillment process. In turn, this can lead to negative consequences through the supply chain. These may include delayed shipments, frustrated customers, and lost business.
Whether a small facility or a large-scale operation, warehouse pickers often encounter the same issues. Here are some of the most common order picking problems and their solutions.
One of the most common occurrences a picker can experience is when an item isn’t where it’s supposed to be. Time spent searching many bins for an item’s warehouse location saps productivity.
This leads to to a domino effect of wasted time that can touch the entire order process. Inventory control software tackles this problem through increased stock visibility. As a result, it’s easier to track inventory for an accurate record of putaway locations.
Several items in an order may live in different locations in a warehouse. Thus, to fulfill the order, a picker must spend travelling time going bin-to-bin, shelf-to-shelf.
Depending on how it’s arranged, pickers may need to travel from one end of the warehouse to another. This draws out the time it takes to complete a single order.
A Warehouse Management System (WMS) makes it possible to manage the layout and flow of a warehouse. Thus, allowing for better flexibility that accounts for items in multiple locations.
Was the picker meant to pull 18 boxes or 19? Gathering many items at once can be difficult to keep track of. This is especially true when they look the same or are in high quantities.
Barcoding software can require scanning of picked items before acceptance. As a result, a picker can verify item counts.
Building on basic barcoding software, task management software aids picking efficiency and accuracy. Not only does it ensure accurate counts, but also streamlines workflows for greater productivity. This process is also called task interleaving.
Picking and tracking items using sheets of paper leaves serious room for error. Also, it’s an inefficient, outdated process in a modern warehouse or distribution center.
Software is a necessity for modern warehouses. A real-time, highly-productive warehousing solution can end hand keying data and paper-based processes. By eliminating errors, lost items and inefficiency, the right solution paves the way for perfect order picking.
A full WMS system is one option. But a WMS may have functionality your company doesn’t need. Also, it may force you to work within pre-set workflows that don’t mesh with your preferred methods.
A better solution may be a stand-alone software that integrates to your ERP or back-end system. Warehouse Task Management tools, Inventory Control and/or Barcoding could be the solution for accurate picking.
