Overview

WMS Market in the Midst of Transitioning to Cloud
A warehouse management system’s (WMS) primary mission is to manage a warehouse’s resources, including space, labor, equipment, tasks, and material flows.  A WMS is a real-time solution (not systems that generate paper-based picking lists) and includes a variety of complementary solutions within the scope of this study: labor management, voice recognition, warehouse analytics, and warehouse optimization solutions.

This is the most comprehensive WMS study of the global WMS market that is available.  ARC has been doing this study annually for 20 years.

Users, and not just smaller companies, are beginning to demonstrate a distinct preference for Cloud based solutions sold in the SaaS model.  When companies commit to SaaS, they take a significant revenue hit in the first few years after the transition.  When big WMS companies commit to SaaS, the growth of the whole market is impacted.

The other major factor impacting WMS market, is the growth in ecommerce and omnichannel. 

Strategic Issues
The core issues impacting this market are the shift toward a user preference for SaaS and the demands for ecommerce WMS solutions. 

  • Which suppliers are most committed to the SaaS model?

  • Which suppliers are benefitting from ecommerce WMS implementations?
