Vendor Selection: Warehouse Management System (WMS)

Prepare for future growth

Warehouse Management Vendor Selection

Since you last purchased a Warehouse Management System (WMS) the market has changed. Technology has evolved rapidly. Not only are there many new vendors and license structures, but many new integrations and deployment options too (such as Software as a Service (SaaS) and microservices). In addition, consumer expectations are on the rise.

Personalized service.
Globalization.
Customized products.
Speed of delivery.
They all impact warehouse operations.

So when you select a new WMS it’s important to understand your business needs. Not just  today, but 12 months from now, and in 5 years. That way you’ll select the right system. And we can help. Consider the following…

Capabilities to Support Growth

Your new WMS should support:

  • Seamless enterprise-wide system integration to provide your employees with higher quality data so they can make better business decisions.
  • Mobile devices beyond traditional RF scanners, so you can take advantage of lower price points and productivity improvements from modern user interfaces.
  • Value Added Services (VAS) tasks such as price tag labeling or light manufacturing that might currently be done by a third party or retail store. You’ll need your WMS to support VAS billing too.
  • International shipment labeling so you can ship globally.
  • Labeling to comply with legislation such as California Proposition 65.
  • Integration with new material handling equipment (such as pick to light) and warehouse robots, for improved efficiency.
  • Changes to your business processes, such as the addition of staging locations, so you can easily adapt to new business requirements.
  • The addition of a new brand or division to an existing warehouse.
  • Elasticsearch (which supports natural language queries) for increased employee productivity.

But it can be a challenge to determine how well a solution really supports these requirements and which one will best suit your unique needs. That’s why we offer a WMS vendor selection service.

WMS Vendor Selection

Our three part service includes the following:

1. Assessment

A thorough System and Business Process Assessment after which you’ll receive a Uniqueness Index and Recommendation Report that will include an:

  • Integration Analysis
  • Business Process Analysis
  • Future State Analysis

2. Customized Request for Proposal (RFP Template

We’ll develop a custom RFP template based on your unique business requirements.

3. RFP Vendor Management

We will act as the point of contact for vendor engagement, and will:

  • Distribute RFPs
  • Consolidate and score responses
  • Schedule demos
  • Develop a list of questions to ask vendors
  • Provide vendor score sheets
  • Facilitate vendor demo scoring sessions
  • Craft a list of questions for use during vendor reference calls

Why Bridge Solutions Group?

Because you need a partner who understands the buying trends that impact Retailers, Manufacturers and 3PLs, both in the U.S., and globally, so you can choose a solution that will prepare you for future growth.

We have a wealth of WMS experience. We pride ourselves on understanding not just the technology, but the business processes that drive warehouse efficiency and service differentiation.

In addition to the deep experience of our in-house resources, we’ll tap the knowledge of our vast network of partners, which includes many WMS and third party vendors. You’ll receive the benefit of their collective wisdom on how to achieve a future-forward, seamlessly integrated WMS solution, that best fits your strategic objectives.

After selection, we can also support your implementation, or provide program management to help keep your WMS vendor on track.

We’ve worked hard to win our reputation. We’ll work just as hard to keep it. And we look forward to working with you.
