Cloud Based Warehouse ManagementAs technology continues to improve the way business is conducted, a trend of moving applications to cloud has followed suite. A warehouse management system works in real time, informing pickers of orders and allowing them to more accurately do their job. A cloud based warehouse management system works in this real time environment and is accessible from any device.

When considering moving to a cloud based infrastructure for a warehouse management system, 3 key benefits should be considered.

First, the implementation of a cloud based system can happen much faster. The IT department does not need to be trained on system administration, system back up or recovery or upgrades. All of that is hosted on the server, and is handed by the software provider.

The initial cost of a cloud based system may be significant due to the large licensing fees, however, it is more cost effective for the life of the software. The licensing fee is usually for the life of the software and will include the updates.

The final benefit of having a cloud based warehouse management system is the company always has an expert on their side. Many of the cloud based systems comes with technical support. Many times, these technical experts have access to the engineers who designed and developed the system.

Having a cloud based warehouse management system in place helps the communication between the supplier and buyer, improving customer service and reducing inventory costs.
