Benefits of wholesale & distribution WMS
Why choose Indigo Software?
A warehouse management system helps improve inventory accuracy and control, reduces costs, optimises warehouse space, and increases customer satisfaction for wholesalers and distributors by automating order fulfilment processes and providing real-time visibility into stock levels.
A WMS also enables your wholesale or distribution business to better plan and execute strategies for product placement and delivery.
Wholesalers and distributors that are looking for a complete, cost-effective warehouse management system need look no further than Indigo WMS. Indigo WMS can fully integrate into existing business software and provide all the necessary functionality required.
The large number of SKU’s and huge variety of item sizes that are often found in wholesaling and distribution warehouses means that picking these goods is not without its complications. For example, picking a 56 gallon drum of oil with a tiny paint chip stick and everything in between.
Indigo WMS provides all the necessary functionality needed for wholesdale and distribution warehouses plus it allows complete control of the workforce using hand held devices to capture the picking activity as it happens.
Delivering clear return on investment
