Customer Notifications

Notify customers when shipments are processed with links to track shipping status via carrier systems. Use business events to alert customers when backordered items are received and ready for shipment.

Physical Inventory

Leverage mobile apps for physical inventory cycle counts and other activities to ensure inventory accuracy.

Carts and Totes

Acumatica WMS – FAQ

What is warehouse management?

Warehouse management is the managing of the daily procedures and transactions required to run a warehouse. Basic warehouse operations include organizing warehouse space, managing inventory, fulfilling orders, executing returns, scheduling labor, and inspecting equipment. On a more complex level, warehouse management involves improving, streamlining, and integrating each process in order to become an efficient and profitable business.

What is a warehouse management system (WMS)?

A warehouse management system (WMS) is a software solution that supports the essential processes—both simple and complex—of managing a warehouse. These warehousing processes include receiving, storing, and monitoring inventory; retrieving inventory through the pick-and-pack process; shipping orders; reporting on shipment accuracy (e.g., correct shipments, over-shipments, under-shipment, and shipping incorrect items); and communicating with suppliers and transportation vendors who are responsible for providing materials and shipping orders.
With a WMS, these core processes are automated and fully managed using role-based dashboards. When purchased as part of a cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, a WMS takes warehouse management to the next level by storing and synchronizing data from the WMS and other ERP modules—such as accounting, customer resource management, and human resources—in a centralized database.
Accessing this real-time, accurate, and company-wide data in a single cloud-based system fuels the ability to complete forecasting, analysis, compliance, and planning tasks, to optimize warehouse performance, and to drive improvements.

What are the benefits of a WMS?

The end goal of every warehouse operation is to provide customers with a seamless shopping experience and to deliver their orders as promised and on time. Meeting this crucial goal is possible with a modern WMS, which also supplies the following business-enhancing and customer-satisfying benefits:

  • Automated Inventory: Manage inventory levels—including in-stock/out-of-stock items, turnovers, receipts, and shipments—in single or multiple warehouses without manual processes or paper-based spreadsheets and have updated inventory data available with a click of a button.
  • Streamlined Fulfillment: With automated workflows, barcode scanning with a mobile scanner, and preprinted smart scan sheets (or paperless directed picking) for wave or batch picking, managers and warehouse clerks have the tools they need to perform their warehousing duties effectively and efficiently.
  • Reduced Errors: Audible and visual indicators on the scanner alert workers when incorrect scans occur and serial lot and serial number tracking ensure that mistakes in picking and shipping are eliminated, thus reducing picking errors and increasing productivity.
  • Role-Based Dashboards: Receive real-time, configurable insights into key performance indicators, such as employee productivity, on-time shipping ratio, order fill rates, late orders, return rates, and more.

Best of all, a cloud-based WMS and ERP solution offers users modern mobility, allowing them to connect to their critical data and monitor their complex warehousing operations at any time of the day or night using a web-enabled device of their choice.

“Acumatica handles inventory so much better than our old system. This is a big-time savings for us to see live inventory availability across our different locations and not have to resort to various spreadsheet or wander through our yards of products like we did before.” – Steve Slaughter, President/CEO, Frederick Block, Brick & Stone
