2 August 2022, 5:20 pm

Who says supply chain information has to be stuffy all the time? Here are ten signs you might need a better warehouse management system, à la famed comedian Jeff Foxworthy.

  1. If it takes you longer to find a product in your warehouse than it does to complete the daily Wordle, you might need a new WMS.
  2. If a shopper can walk to the store and buy an item faster than you can pick, pack and ship it, you might need a new WMS.
  3. If you can’t find your forklift among yesterday’s receipts, you might need a new WMS.
  4. If your inventory numbers are more “off” than the mysterious leftovers hiding in the back of your fridge, you might need a new WMS.
  5. If your fulfillment costs are rising faster than the cost of gas, you might need a new WMS.
  6. If space in your warehouse is in shorter supply than toilet paper in 2020, you might need a new WMS.
  7. If the bathroom faucets in your warehouse get touched less than each item you ship, you might need a new WMS.
  8. If you’ve got full pallets in the break room to use in lieu of lunch tables and your associates have just accepted this as a fact, you might need a new WMS.
  9. If your implementation consultant looks younger then your newborn nephew, you might need a new WMS.
  10. If your 10-year-old nephew has more tech experience than anyone on your support team, you might need a new WMS.
