New ARC Advisory Group research on the warehouse management systems (WMS) market reveals that the growth of e-commerce and the fulfillment process change driven by this commerce change is a long-term contributor to demand for WMS. Although this trend has existed for a number of years, it appears to be developing at a more rapid pace than many companies anticipated in the recent past.
“Warehouse management systems suppliers should develop, extend, and deliver functionality that supports the changing fulfillment requirements driven by the growth of e-commerce and omni-channel fulfillment. Companies are increasingly using put-walls to cost effectively fulfill e-commerce orders. They are also looking to keep up with competition by offering expedited delivery,” according to Clint Reiser, Director, Supply Chain Research at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s Warehouse Management Systems Global Market Research report.
“When it comes to purchasing a WMS, it is important for groups to properly define their organization’s requirements, prioritize, and pay for what your organization requires most,” added Reiser.
