Are You Using Warehouse Management Software Effectively?

Warehouse-Management-SoftwareHave you ever wondered why two companies with the same warehouse management software achieve different results? After all, they’re using the same software – shouldn’t they be reaping the same benefits? In theory, yes. In reality, no.

The benefits obtained through warehouse management software solutions are individual to the companies using them. Sure, Cloud-based warehouse management solutions can help businesses make more effective decisions and improve communication across the organization, but if you aren’t using them correctly you will not achieve these results. As with most things in life, you get what you put in when it comes to your business software solutions.

So how can you begin using your warehouse management software more effectively? The solution is simple: train your employees well. Software training goes beyond the initial training session. In order to help your employees truly develop the skills they need to get everything they can out of the system, then you need to train them continuously. Offer refresher sessions to employees who have been using the system for a while and provide new hires with the chance to ask questions about any issues they are having. The more time and energy you put into training your employees the right way, the more you’ll get out of the system.

We know that you don’t have a lot of time to spend on software training. In fact, two days is often pushing it for busy manufacturing and distribution companies. That’s why we’ve created Scanco University, our first online training platform designed to help you simplify the learning curve of your new Scanco software. Users can complete training sessions at their own pace with their own mobile device, allowing you to save time and money in training costs without scrimping on the training itself.
