Warehouse managers that are strategic with distribution automation and more customer driven know that the best warehouse management tool is only as good as the data that is put into it. This is the main reason why it is important to automate the data collection process in the warehouse.

Warehouse management can be a complex task. Balancing inventory levels is a challenging balancing act in and of itself. Too much inventory can result in resource waste and the risk of products becoming obsolete over time. Too little inventory can mean losing potential customers due to lack of supply. The supply chain goal is to more effectively buy and stock as little inventory as possible by choosing instead to quickly source, ship, and deliver product on premises or to the customer.

There are automation tools built for Sage 100 that can help you anticipate and forecast the market demand accurately, reduce safety stock levels, and buy inventory on an as-needed basis. Automating these processes reduces costs and makes your warehouse much more profitable.
