Warehouse management for small-to-midsized businesses

The Infor SCM Warehouse Management Business Edition is claimed to be a cost-effective software solution tailored to the requirements of small to midsized businesses (SMBs). The software addresses the complex business challenges facing SMBs while also meeting their IT departments’ need for streamlined systems that are easier to implement and maintain.

SMBs are confronted with many of the same fulfilment challenges as large enterprises, with a similar fundamental need to improve inventory accuracy, optimise work and task management, and maximise the utilisation of warehouse space and personnel. SMBs typically face longer supply chains and erratic service levels, requiring a pressing need to anticipate changes outside the warehouse to better manage inbound deliveries and upstream changes in customer demand. The software provides SMBs with the extended warehouse management software functionality they need to implement best practices and process improvements, but with technology options designed for their smaller IT footprint.

Infor SCM Warehouse Management Business Edition is designed for rapid implementation and setup. The solution provides built-in best practices for key warehouse functions like storage (putaway) and allocation strategies, location definitions and area/zone definitions. Documentation includes a configuration tutorial and administrators guide, for in-house deployment by internal IT personnel. The solution simplifies master data setup through the import/export functions of Microsoft Excel.

In addition to the built-in capabilities of Infor SCM Warehouse Management Business Edition, customers can add advanced functionality to support their continued growth and evolving business objectives. The service-oriented architecture framework allows customers to add additional modules, such as RFID, Billing, and Labor Forecasting, on an agile and scalable technology foundation that supports future growth. Infor’s extended Supply Chain Management portfolio, such as solutions for Network Design and Transportation Management, can help SMBs as their businesses grow beyond the midsized category into the ranks of the largest enterprises.

The software has been designed for industries such as third-party logistics, manufacturing, distribution, retail, and other areas where SMBs seek to achieve world-class warehouse operations.
