As we mentioned in our blog, 8 Warehouse Management Technology Trends in 2016, companies are moving their critical business systems—including warehouse management—to the cloud in droves. On-premises applications are rapidly being replaced by cloud applications because cloud software offers efficiency and cost savings. As a result, subscription models are becoming commonplace.
Here are some of the benefits you can expect to realize from using cloud technology in your warehouse:
Lower Costs, Faster ROI
With a cloud software model, upfront costs and on-going maintenance costs are reduced providing a faster Return on Investment (ROI).
Faster Implementation and Upgrades
Because you do not need to purchase and install rigid, proprietary equipment and software, the cloud installation can be executed more quickly with less disruption to your business.
More Flexibility, Scalability and Accessibility
Cloud warehouse software provides access from any device without expensive hardware or customization. Inventory visibility is made possible with real-time integration between warehouse and ERP systems. Cloud applications increase the ability to collaborate among the workforce, enable more agile decisions and promote common organizational standards.
