Development of cloud-based warehouse management software to optimize and automate the warehousing operations of a 3PL provider. The logistics company operated with a legacy system, which didn’t support the integration of automation tools and required manual entries. To help the company remain competitive in a digitalized logistics environment, we have developed a comprehensive cloud-based WMS solution. Our development team utilized the latest cloud-computing practices to provide a scalable SaaS product for the client’s digital transformation.

request background

Cloud-based warehouse management system development

Striving for expansion within the highly competitive landscape, the company decided to step out of its outdated legacy software. The client required a cloud-based warehouse management system to leverage real-time visibility and implement automation for its warehousing operations.

Due to limited integration capabilities and non-adjustable functionality of the initial client’s system, the company couldn’t adapt to the market changes. The growing volume of incoming orders couldn’t fit into the legacy software capacity. For that reason, the client decided to shift to a more sophisticated SaaS WMS tool allowing for manual task automation.

Our partner also wanted all warehouse divisions to operate coherently. The new cloud-based WMS system had to coordinate warehousing activities across different locations, exchanging data in real-time

challenge

Development of scalable and compliant cloud WMS software while replacing legacy systems and increasing global reach

The company encountered efficiency challenges since the client performs logistics operations in a digitalized, dynamically changing market. Manual and paper-based processes caused inefficiencies, errors, and delays in fulfilling orders, negatively affecting customer satisfaction.

The outdated WMS lacked visibility features, which posed difficulties in coordinating warehouse operations across various global sites. Overall, the current system was ill-prepared to manage the increasing volume of logistics operations.

goals

  1. Adoption of a SaaS cloud-based WMS to automate manual operations and increase overall efficiency.
  2. Leveraging real-time tracking and visibility features for smooth data communication between various warehousing facilities.
  3. Development of a comprehensive, flexible tool allowing the client to integrate third-party software and scale the product based on the operations’ scale.
  4. Ensuring security and compliance to protect sensitive freight-related data.

First, we identified the critical manual processes requiring automation to promote a higher level of operational efficiency. Having created a database of essential operations, Acropolium built a system where warehouse staff could assign order picking, packing, and shipping. That way, the cloud WMS solution has improved data accuracy and reduced fulfillment times.

To ensure smooth cooperation across different storage facilities, we implemented real-time visibility into inventory levels, order status, and warehouse operations. This solution has contributed to the client’s proactive decision-making.

Taking into account the importance of scalability, our dedicated team tailored SaaS warehouse management software to meet specific client’s needs. As a result, we built a flexible tool, where functionality and system features adapt and change as the business grows.

  • The SaaS solution was developed with advanced integration potential, allowing the company to seamlessly integrate ERP and TMS systems.
  • Focusing on inventory management automation, Acropolium leveraged mobile accessibility for the cloud-based WMS system. Using the module enabling warehouse staff to access the WMS through mobile devices, we automated the order processing routine.
  • To ensure robust security, our team built a SaaS solution using the latest data encryption and access control practices. The product is built with industry regulations in mind to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of warehouse data.
  • For a smooth transition from the initial system to the new SaaS WMS, we provided training programs for warehouse staff.

outcome

Highly effective and cost-efficient transformation of basic operations with the power of cutting-edge SaaS warehouse management software

  • With precise inventory tracking and immediate visibility into stock levels, the client has minimized stock shortages or excess inventory situations. As a result, the company’s order processing time has improved by 31%.
  • By implementing automation and eliminating the legacy system maintenance costs, the client has reduced operational costs by 17%.
  • The company improved warehousing efficiency by 29%, achieving a significant increase in the number of orders processed within a set timeframe.
