Warehouse management software for wholesale

The Warehouse Management System for Wholesale

Achieve great

Warehouse management systems used in wholesale must meet a very specific set of requirements. Whether it’s technical equipment, building materials, food or beverages, wholesalers have to ensure that the shelves in supermarkets and discounters are always well stocked. And that’s not so easy in this day and age.

The limited availability of products, constant cost pressure and the growing challenges of e-commerce business are also hurdles for B2B business to overcome.

It is not only helpful to implement customized store systems – rethought intralogistics can also significantly simplify and accelerate many processes here.

In the reorganization of processes, which can also be accompanied by (partial) automation, IT is the central key. Our intelligent processes in the standard software ensure smooth interaction between warehouse components and human resources, increase process reliability, minimize errors and accelerate fulfillment. In this context, modern warehouse management systems (WMS) are true efficiency boosters.

This saves time, as there is no need to program a large number of functions. In addition, the warehouse management software is an expression of the manufacturer’s proven process knowledge.”
Udo Bach Managing Director, M.Bach GmbH
“We already have more than 120 customers who use the scanning solution for their day-to-day ordering. For our daily routine, this means that we have significantly less manual work, benefit from huge time savings and also make an ecological contribution by reducing paper.”
