IDC PlanScape: Warehouse Management Systems

Author: Victoria Brown
Research Manager, Global Supply Chain Execution


This IDC study is intended to help IT decision makers better understand the underlying benefits of investing in a WMS and business value expected.

According to Victoria Brown, senior research analyst, IDC Retail Insights, "At a more granular level, WMS enables more strategic inventory flows in a warehouse, reduces product touches and unnecessary movements, and optimizes space. The system can prioritize fast-moving SKUs, reduce partial pallets to alleviate space constraints, and generally, give power to the dock coordinator to make sure loadouts are timely and efficient."
