The warehouse management are always busy making orders from their clients and they then forward to the manufacturers and the same is done so as to process these orders until they are delivered. If this is manually handled, there are chances of the whole order processing, as well as inventory management, being very slow. The slowness is obviously very evident because every order which is made by a customer one has to close check manually whether it is available or not. This is definitely very slow and prone to human error. You will also require several employees to handle. With technology, a single employee can handle tasks which can be done by four stuffs because various activities are usually integrated and synchronized. It is possible to even make direct delivery from the manufacturer to the wholesalers and retailers without first offloading the cargo. This is made possible because the systems auto-updates the systems; orders from the customers as well as the cargo waiting to be delivered from the manufacturer where if the order coincides, then it can be made directly to the clients, and the entire progress and process is automatically recorded. With this, you can directly deliver to your clients consequently saving on space of your stores. Another mega benefit of this is stock management. The manual stock management method has been very expensive in the long run because goods worth millions of dollars.
The biggest plus brought about by technology is the integration of various operations into a single one. There is a lot of paperwork in the manual method of warehouse management. This poses various challenges such as slow close-checks as well as vast filing spaces. The entire management also calls for more employees. The increased payroll results to higher gearing level of your business. Technology integrates the entire manual method into a very simplified electronic file which is very easy and fast to trace any detail. The common errors of data redundancy are totally eliminated.
