At Starware, we have been involved in optimising processes in warehouses and making data about inventory more reliable for as long as we can remember. We call ourselves the WMS party for a reason 😉
The last year we have been training and experimenting with a new WMS from Blue Yonder that is not focussed on the traditional warehouse that we all know so well, but the smaller places of inventory like micro warehouses and the storage rooms in all kinds of retail operations. After we got excited about the product, we started to look around during our personal shopping experiences and we noticed that there is quite a gap between the meticulous process they apply in the central warehouses to ensure stock integrity and the way it’s often handled in the retail stores.
We are very curious if any of you recognise these issues and we would love to hear from you online or meet you in person at the upcoming Paris Retail Week from 19-21st of September.
We have prepared “The Stockroom”. A full mocktail bar running its operation on Blue Yonder’s AFW (Adaptive Fulfillment & Warehousing) to show you some of the exciting features that could help you take the most important step towards true omnichannel: a reliable picture of your inventory in every part of your Supply Chain!
With omnichannel taking such a prominent spot in all retail shops that are truly trying to reinvent themselves, we saw that there was so much to gain by implementing a simple WMS in all storage locations in your supply chain.
With that, we believe there is a true base for starting an omnichannel strategy as you can actually deliver on your promises, have fewer surprises in missing inventory, and save a ton of hours of your staff looking for the item your customer wants at that moment and should be somewhere in the storage room.
The new Adaptive Fulfillment & Warehousing software from Blue Yonder is a true SAAS solution that shines in the fact that it has super short implementation time, high reusability, and great scalability. So once you get your first store up and running, setting up the rest of them is a breeze.
