The term “WMS” refers to a Warehouse Management System, typically in the form of software and technology that can support the day-to-day operations of a warehouse. Wondering if WMS is right for you? Here are 10 reasons why you may NOT need WMS.
You May Not Need WMS If:
- You have less than 100 inventory items – Keepin’ it simple!
- You handle less than 10 sales orders per day – Low volume, high dollar? Nice work!
- Your profits are extremely high and a 20% efficiency savings will not improve your business by much. – You really should write a book or something.
- You do not care where your items are located within your warehouse and have pickers running around your warehouse all day – They need the exercise!
- Your team enjoys spending hours and hours manually performing physical counts – It’s relaxing and therapeutic for them.
- Your warehouse team are proficient and accurate data entry experts – They always enter inventory transactions into your ERP with speed and precision.
- You enjoy spending time explaining to your customers why you shipped the wrong product – It’s a great opportunity to connect with them!
- You do not want to improve the quality of your customer service – Because your products are so good, why would they go anywhere else?

- You don’t want to save time and avoid errors
- You don’t want to increase your profits by increasing efficiency
