WMS Implementation

Do you need WMS software or is your warehouse management software (WMS) meeting your current supply chain needs?

Commonwealth will help determine what functionality you need or should be getting out of your WMS.

We can help you identify and analyze what features and functionality you would like their (current or future) WMS to provide. Though upgrading a WMS is always an attractive option, it is not always cost-justified.

Commonwealth’s services can help your company answer the following:

  • Can existing software be modified or upgraded or is a new system required?
  • Are our distribution center processes ready to be automated with a WMS?
  • What is the right balance of best practice processes and WMS functionality?
  • How much does a new WMS cost and who are the major players?
  • How long would a WMS project take?
  • What is the ROI for a new WMS?
